cultivate excellence AMONG others.
Sharp, strategic, and all-around supportive. That's how I would describe Linda in three words. Linda has a way with words which helped me not only make a career pivot in an intensely competitive landscape but also helped me to position myself strategically and reshape my mindset throughout the job searching/interviewing process. Starting at square one with Linda is always a good decision, and I wholeheartedly recommend her career services and thought leadership!

I cannot thank Linda enough for her professionalism, time, intelligence, and real-world success. She took the time to truly assess what I needed to have in my CV to capture who I really am and what I have accomplished. Her experience in the success of writing a superb CV is demonstrated in the amount of time she took researching me and really getting to know who I am and what my aspirations are ...
The finished product was far and beyond my expectations and Linda of CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE cultivated a two dimensional CV of me into a real person with capabilities to apply for anything and get the job done."

I really don't know how I can write a short testimonial to describe such a talented, sensitive, and responsible professional woman as Linda Alberty of CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE. I have over 20 years working in the healthcare field as an expert in Physicians Practice Management, Managed Care, and Physician Billing. However, throughout all the years, I lost touch with how much I truly had accomplished in my life. I always struggled with describing it in a way that could help me land my dream job. I am really impressed with Linda's talent. In our first conversation, she was very knowledgeable and captured all the points of our conversation. She rebuilt my entire Curriculum Vitae in such an attractive and professional manner. I cannot thank her enough, because with her guidance and reassurance, I became inspired again.
Within just 4 months of working with CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE, I landed my dream position at St. Anthony Hospital, working in the area of my expertise and with communities that I am most passionate about."

Persuasive, powerful, and charismatic is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Linda. I had the pleasure of meeting Linda Alberty at Mujeres de HACE, a women leadership program, where she first impressed me with her negotiating and influence skills. Next, she helped me with a career preparation and mock interview in a very short notice. Above all, I was impressed with Linda’s ability to listen and absorb the most important information to transform it beautifully to powerful words to help me practice. And, of course, I would highlight her ability to help me strengthen my self-confidence and courage. Linda is a true master in leadership consulting and comes with my heartfelt recommendation."

Working with Linda Alberty at CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE was a true delight! Linda is amazing at what she does—she deftly uses the power of words to completely revamp your job materials and present a more detailed and well-rounded picture of what you would ideally want fellow professionals to know about you, but for whatever reason, currently do not. She leverages her impressive breadth of knowledge of a vast span of career fields to craft phrases that showcase the precise language used in your industry. Linda takes the time to comprehensively explore details that are buried in your mind about what you do professionally and uses her skills to put it clearly on the page so there are no doubts about your value as a professional in your chosen field.
My husband and I both worked with Linda to revise our job materials and were beyond impressed with her talent and patience. We have recommended her to close family and also made referrals to friends, but would encourage anyone seeking that needed touch of professionalism to take your resumes, CVs, and cover letters to the next level, to contact Linda right away for a consultation. She is trustworthy, inspiring, warm, receptive, and very responsive—a complete and total professional. I couldn't be happier with what she has done to help my husband and I move ahead in our careers."

I was in a bind with a time sensitive website project that I was working on and Linda was recommended to me. I can't start to describe how great she was. We spoke on the phone once and she put a team together and we met the next week. I immediately knew Linda and her team were the correct match for me. They asked all the right questions and gathered the information to move forward quickly. Linda always stayed in the loop while her team continued to work on my project. They were all responsive to my suggestions and needs. The greatest part of working with Linda is her upbeat, positive personality. Always a smile. I could feel her smile when we talked on the phone. My project was completed and Linda and her team didn't disappear. They continue to be around for questions and minor adjustments. Thank you Linda and team. "

Thanks to Linda I actually have a professional resume I am proud to use when applying for volunteer and job opportunities with women non-profit organizations. She was understanding of my personality and my career and put it all together, fitting my skills harmoniously to create a strong and powerful impression for such an important document.
As I read my final copy for the first time I was amazed because I got to know myself better by recognizing the professional skills I have developed over all my career. Thanks Linda for being so patient and helping me become who I am for what I do as my passion and helping me one step further into where I really want to be. I will definitely recommend her to all my friends and family looking for better opportunities, and will most likely use her services again as my career keeps getting bigger."

Saha R. Joyeux
Founder of Unveiling Beauty & Sahar Image
When I met Ms. Alberty of CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE, I was seeking to change industries, going from profit to non-profit. I had a lot of experience and a resume in motion but it lacked focus, organization, and a clear objective. After just one conversation with me, she was able to discern who I was, determine what I was capable of, and breathe life into an otherwise ineffective resume. Less than one month after working with CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE, I began getting interviews, and now I am finally working in the non-profit sector."
I was really impressed with your professionalism and of course your attention to detail in working with me on my resume. I appreciated your caring and loving nature, which is something I found refreshing as I do not see that in a lot of people today. You possess many wonderful qualities of which I'm sure will help you achieve your goals for your success in the future. God bless you!"
I am a Registered Nurse with a few years of experience. So when I intended to switch jobs in 2013, I had to redo my resume including my current experience. I submitted my resume to Linda. I was pleased with the suggestions she gave me regarding the template, grammar and punctuation. The finished work qualified me for an interview at Kishwaukee Hospital. She is an amazing resource!"
Emma Abbey, R.N.
Linda has helped with my resume exceptionally well. With her gift of excellence in writing and vision, I've received more interview requests because of her professional advice. I'm thankful for her help in advancing my resume to fit my career experience."
I first encountered Ms. Alberty's expertise the day before I had a phone interview for a hospital. She was so pleasant, optimistic and refreshing. She took as much time as I needed to make me feel comfortable with developing possible interview responses. She even took the time to follow up with me after the interview to see how everything went. Very thorough!"
Doris Smith, R.N.
There are no words to express what CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE has done for me. In my time of greatest need, Linda helped me prepare both my resume and cover letter to land a job at Betheseda Lutheran Communities. I have been using the strategies she showed me ever since. She even taught me how to be prepared for interviews. I am truly grateful."
