Whether it's online, onstage, or on-camera, I'm in the business of telling stories. How can I help you tell yours?

hello!

I'm Sarah Kleist.

Ready to sprinkle some humanity on your least favorite PDF?

We all have resumé baggage. 

Here's the thing: you have experience. And even if you don't, you know you could figure it out along the way.

No matter how successful you are, there’s always a disconnect between what you’ve done and what you want to do next. 

Let’s bridge that gap together.

Whether the job you want is in an office or on a Broadway stage, resumés have the ability to tell the story of your career through the lens of your personality, values, and impact. 

(And it’s all in how you tell that story.)

WHO'S IT FOR?

Resumé Revamp is for creative professionals who are not afraid to show up and stand out. If you believe that your creativity is an asset (and not something you have to hide on your resumé), then this service is for you. Let’s get to the bottom of your superpowers and showcase them.

how does it work?

FIll out the form below and we’ll put a 30-minute Zoom call on the calendar. In the meantime, I'll send you some questions & brainstorming prompts to get your creative juices flowing about the story you want to tell. After our call, I’ll go away and create a draft of your new resumé.

From there, we’ll collaborate on up to two rounds of revisions. Once you’re excited about it, I send you the PDFs and links to update it yourself as you go, and you start submitting to your dream jobs with pride!

The Reviews Are In

Sarah’s resumé work is beyond thoughtful, authentic to her client, and stunning. The amount of time, energy, work, and thought-provoking questions that were put into making these documents of my work experience was mind-blowing. I have never seen myself executed so wonderfully on paper, and I am over the moon with the process and result! She will steer you closer to your dreams!


Olivia Grady

Actor, Director, Producer

Like a creative detective, Sarah investigates each aspect of your work to highlight what sets you apart, and then she aesthetically and magically translates that on to paper. Working with Sarah is a dream, she is a multi-hyphenated artist and professional, and more importantly, creates a space for honesty and collaboration. After working with Sarah, my resumes have the penthouse suite upgrade and really represent the WHY; both why I do what I do, and why whoever has my resume in their hands should hire me. Work with Sarah, and her resume magic will give you the confidence to put your best resume self into the world. 

Ruthy Frock

TEACHING ARTIST + CREATIVE

Before Sarah worked her magic on my resume, it was an afterthought. A thing I begrudgingly had, didn't really want, and hardly ever thought about. Sarah helped me see that my resume is an opportunity for intentional storytelling. She created a resume that represents me: who I am, who I've been, and (most importantly) who I want to be. Her work encouraged me to look at myself and my experiences in a new way that makes me feel proud, excited, and honestly...magical!

Lili Torre

COURSE CREATOR, FACILITATOR, PODCAST HOST

After a 15 minute zoom chat, Sarah nailed my aesthetic and created something I can’t wait to use. (Who has EVER said that about their resume?) With her detailed use of fonts and colors she also gave me a template to build my website around so the message I’m sending online and in person is all in line with the past, present and where I want my career to go in the future. 

Josephine Roberts

ACTOR, ROCK OF AGES ON BROADWAY

As an actor, it can be hard to think of your skills as transferable. Sarah made me feel confident and capable, and now I have a gorgeous new resume to show for it! I was so happy with the result and am eager to start sending it off to potential employers.

Kat Griffin

Administrative and creative professional

Sarah’s Resumé Revamp is an absolute game-changer. She completely utilized my established #brand in a way that feels refreshing. My resume is now beyond unique and allows casting to understand my vibe before I even enter the audition room. 

Danny Marin

Actor + producer

After a single thirty minute Zoom call, Sarah was able to help me figure out how and what to focus my résumé on, which was honestly half the battle. She is equal parts brilliant artist, graphic designer and life coach, and thanks to her Résumé Revamp, I finally feel confident that when I share my résumé, I’m sharing the best version of myself. 

Molly Reisman

Writer, Producer, Educator, and Arts Administrator

Collaborating with Sarah to find a new representation of myself and my story was not only helpful in a professional sense, but hugely rewarding on a personal level. Sarah reframes your work in an industry-specific way, and asks thought-provoking questions about your path and how you want to represent yourself best.

Nick Wilders

Music Director & Data Scientist

"I'M APPLYING FOR NON-CREATIVE JOBS, SO I'M HESITANT TO SUBMIT SOMETHING OUT-OF-THE-BOX TO A HIRING MANAGER. WHAT CAN I DO?"

It doesn’t have to be super wild! But while we're at it, here's one of my favorite sections from Meredith Fineman's book, Brag Better:

It wasn't until I got more comfortable with people hiring me for me, and not what I thought a businessperson looked like, that I realized sanitizing myself and my materials was holding people back from hiring me instead of incentivizing them to do so. I now add humor and color to everything that I do.

"CAN I UPDATE THE RESUMÉ MYSELF later on?"

Yes, when we're done with revisions, I will send you a link to edit your resumé forever and ever. At this stage, it's all yours! Happy hunting!

"WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW WHAT JOB I WANT NEXT?"

That’s okay! It’s more important to make your resumé feel like you than anything else. (And perhaps you’ll learn something about yourself, your values, or your skillsets in the process—I see it happen every time.)
