Creating fresh starts and
new directions since 2007



Mariner Career Services

Need help with a career goal or challenge? Such as making a career change or fixing a resume, cover letter or LinkedIn profile that is not producing results? My name is Tim Solinger, and I understand the challenges that clients face in making decisions about their careers having assisted hundreds of clients nationwide across many industries and employment sectors over the past 11+ years.

While making a career change or launching a new career can be exciting, I also know from my experiences with clients that crafting a professional resume and cover letter, or other documents, or preparing a high-impact LinkedIn profile can be frustrating and tiresome depending on one's experience and comfort level. In working with clients, I use a proven process and established best practices in delivering solutions for needs that include:

 Revitalizing an underperforming resume or LinkedIn profile
 Advancing to the next level
 Making a career change
 Overcoming unemployment or underemployment
 Breaking into the job market as a new graduate
 Translating a liberal arts background into different career directions
 Leveraging work experience in launching a consulting career
 Exploring an encore career at retirement


Over the years, I have worked with many job seekers and career professionals and understand the uncertainty of launching a new career or the frustration of feeling stalled in a career or struggling with preparing an effective resume, cover letter or LinkedIn profile.

While creating resumes and providing interviewing support are practical examples of the services that I offer, my purpose and driving motivation at a deeper level is to help people with defining their unique skills and experiences so they can be better understood, appreciated and valued and ultimately realize greater career and personal fulfillment. In assisting clients, I work with them in a friendly, supportive and nonjudgmental way to provide them with solutions to get the career results they are seeking. Please see Testimonials to learn about client responses to my services.

In my job search since sending out the resume you created for me, I have had 3 job interviews and yesterday I received a solid job offer that I will be accepting. I wanted to let you know that I am beyond pleased with the resume you prepared, and I feel it showcases my career history and skills well."
