Dawn Rasmussen, a certified résumé writer, is the president of Portland, Ore.-based Pathfinder Writing and Career Services and author of “Forget Job Security: Build Your Marketability” which is the first-ever book that provides a complete roadmap on how to manage your career.
Instead of continuing this speaker introduction with a long, boring list of career accolades or high-profile media outlets where she has been featured, I am going to share with you the one thing that makes Dawn “tick”: a relentless and tireless desire to help everyone understand the importance of actively managing their career every minute of every day.
So if Dawn makes you uncomfortable during today’s presentation, that’s great! That tells her that she has pushed your envelope (in a good way) and helped make you think, and means that this is the first step in the journey where you begin to actively manage your career destiny.
When she isn’t busy working with résumé clients, speaking to conference groups internationally and nationally, writing articles/blogs, or teaching, Dawn is hiking in Oregon’s spectacular outdoors, kayaking, or plotting her next adventure.
