Your Host and Guru: Todd Gareiss
One of Best Resume Writers in NYC!

Twenty-five years of marketing experience and the drive of a top NYC professional resume writer and businessman at your fingertips.


Dedicated to my clients’ success, I LOVE what I do: marketing people—using the same strategies and techniques used by leading advertising and PR firms.

Leveraging a career’s worth of marketing expertise and experience, ten years ago I launched CareerClout where my talents are focused on providing significant advantage to the client's job search.

In my free time you can find me skiing or snowboarding, downhill mountain biking, playing guitar, or watching Rugby at the Irish bar down the street. I collect pre-WWII Gibson guitars, love antiquing and flea markets, and spend much of my time in Vermont.

I received an MBA from Georgetown University and a Bachelor of Economics from Drew University.


Sales and Marketing Approach

This is a partnership and collaboration. With experience forged in New York City, we build the resume together and I see you through to the job offer. There is only one flat fee.

Landing the job you want with the salary you deserve starts with CareerClout, a thorough and highly personalized process, product and system.

Personalization drives the resume's quality.
Marketing and sales drives its power and effectiveness.
