Get to know a little more about Best Word Forward

Who am I?

My name is Jonathan Ytreberg, husband and father dedicated to finding new ways to help you make the most of that most important document of your career…your resume.

My Story

In 2013, after spending almost a decade working for the same company, I found myself being laid off. It was a new feeling for me not to have a job under my feet and scared me. It was then that I decided to use that misfortune to try and help others. I started pouring everything I knew into making my own resume the best it could be.

The experience of putting together my new resume for people who didn’t know my history was eye-opening. I knew what I looked for when interviewing people, but it was the first time in a long time where I was on the other side of the table.

In reviewing resumes since that time, I have come to find several key mistakes that people make when they write their resumes and it is my goal to educate people about those mistakes. By showing people these mistakes, perhaps I can help them avoid some of the same issues I had when I found out I was going to lose my job.

Why Resumes?

Everyone needs a resume. That gives me endless opportunities to help people. The truth is, not everyone really needs a resume, but everyone does HAVE one. Tom Brady has a great resume if you’re hiring someone to be your NFL quarterback. But his resume is not so great if you need a concert cellist or a neurosurgeon.

The same goes for you. Your resume is good for certain things, but likely lacks in other areas. That is fine as long as you are highlighting the RIGHT areas.

That’s where I come in. I want to help you make sure your resume shines a bright light on the skills, abilities and accomplishments that show you are perfect for…whatever job you want!

Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about me.

I hope you will let me help you put your BEST WORD FORWARD!
