John K. Brubaker – Principal
John Brubaker is a nationally respected writer and outplacement professional. He is a Yale graduate, a two-time published co-author, co-creator of a successful television series and recognized media expert on resume writing and job search. John has given more than 100 media interviews, on a range of topics. He has been a featured guest on Connecticut Public Radio – on the John Dankovsky “Where We Live” and Colin McEnroe programs; WDRC Talk of Connecticut, Mary Jones Show and on television on the Fox 61 Stan Simpson Show; and Connecticut Style (WTNH-TV8). An All-Ivy Track & Field athlete while at Yale, John’s adult athletic successes include earning a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, and winning medals in two national masters track & field championship meets.
Within the past three years, John has invented a new and powerful system for helping clients get good job interviews. In the 2016 job market, corporate recruiters tell us that an average job posting will receive 200 applicants, of which the company will generally interview 10 or less candidates. This means that the “average” person will need to send out 25 resumes and cover letters to get a single interview – and, if they are average, 200 to get a new job. No wonder people get so discouraged.
Professional Resume Plus, LLC’s system creates extremely customized resumes and cover letters – optimizing each candidates precise qualifications for whatever specific job they are applying for. It uses a type of digital marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) method to produce resumes and letters which get our clients to the very top of the software screening systems, which eliminate half or more of the applicant. The system then adds in a critical additional element – researching, identifying and making contact directly with the hiring managers. These two core ideas have created a complete sea change in job search for our clients. We typically have two or more clients every month who get a new career job on the first or second resume/letter combination they send out.
John loves this work, and is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with and advocate for our clients. He lives in the Greater Hartford area with his wife Jane and their cat Tiger Paws. To contact him:
