Any of these sound familiar?

Does anyone even read cover letters anymore? What else can I try?

How can I be sure my connections remember me?

How can I stand out among other qualified applicants?

How do I get people to want to read my resume or talk to me?

So much networking - somedays it feels like I'm stuck in a hamster wheel. 

I can't seem to break through in my job search.







I need a more impactful way to check in after an interview.


I need a way to showcase myself when there's no time for a conversation.


Fast forward to the formation of Uhlsee and conversations with a friend and mentor, who specializes in career transition and outplacement -  the Professional Spotlight    was born.

I've been there, too!

In 2008, I lost my job and, as a new, single mom, I had all the same worries and frustrations.

I learned that it takes more than a killer resume and perfected elevator pitch to get noticed. 

So, what is this professional spotlight thing  ?




i need one of those!

I'm ready to stand out

When you land that SWEET new j-o-b, send this to all your new colleagues to introduce yourself.



Once we decide we’re a good fit, we’ll have a 60-minute discovery call where I get to learn more about you, your journey, your goals, and review the documents and info you already have.


How it works...



I’ll get to work creating the content and the design for your Spotlight. But, don’t worry, I know you’re the expert in your field, so we’ll talk through each draft of your Spotlight to get it to the final stage.

The final result is a distinctive Professional Spotlight   that gives you extra swagger in your search.

+ 60-minute Discovery call
+ Up to two 45-minute revision calls (if applicable)
+ Up to 3 rounds of revisions
+ PDF version of completed Spotlight
+ Match your Spotlight branding with your other job search docs
+ And, I get that sometimes things change* (a new certification, skill, job change...) and you don't have the software to update your Spotlight. So, I'll also provide one additional round of minor edits to be used at a later time.

*If you think you'll need to make frequent changes, we can discuss a retainer plan to meet your needs.
