Landed Design Solutions
Owner & Designer
February 2015 — Present
As I was preparing to leave my career in pharmacy, I stumbled upon resume templates on Etsy and purchased one. However, within seconds of opening it, I realized I could do much better. With a full-time job and an hour+ commute, I worked on resume writing and designing templates every second I could. I quickly opened my own shop on Etsy and sold two designs the very first day. A year later, with hard work, constant improvements and amazing customer service, I have sold thousands of templates and am the leading shop on Etsy for everything resume-related.
My goal is to make the job search a lot more exciting and a little less stressful by providing quick, easy and affordable resume makeovers through the use of professionally designed resume templates. Aside from providing a stylish alternative to the standard Microsoft Word resume template, each purchase includes a resume writing guidebook and plenty of tips to motivate and guide the job-seeker to produce a winning resume. I also provide proofreading and resume re-writing/editing services for those who need a little extra help.
Since trading in my full-time job to become self-employed, my sales have more than doubled from my best month in 2015 and continue to climb each consecutive month. Half of my purchases are made by brand new Etsy users who have stumbled across my templates on other platforms through targeted advertising and word-of-mouth. My customer service is exceptional (250 five-star reviews and counting), because I truly love helping people. If I can take any amount of job search stress away, fix a computer problem, or guide a customer in the right direction, I am incredibly happy to do so. And there is no better feeling than having a customer email me to tell me how much the hiring manager loved their resume and that they landed their dream job!
