About Tim – Certified Professional Resume Writer


My name is Tim Cunningham and I am a Certified Professional Resume Writer. Before turning to resume writing, I enjoyed a 15-year career in sales, customer service, financial supervision, and purchasing for businesses all across Canada.

Jumping from industry to industry allowed me to discover—the hard way—that using a substandard resume can curse you with an interview-free summer of unemployment. On the bright side, it empowered me to learn the benefits of using a good one, and to pursue and discover the secrets of resume writing and development.

After calling it quits in the corporate world, I decided to start my own small business, Fast and Focused Resume Service, with the goal of helping those who need the extra boost to reach their career goals. By using the knowledge that I acquired from my business background, and the professional interview techniques that I learned from my journalist father (the senior News Executive at two of Canada’s three major TV networks), I leverage my clients’ accomplishments into construct powerfully persuasive resumes that are guaranteed to produce interviews quickly.
