More About Stephen Van Vreede:
Before becoming an entrepreneur, Stephen spent his days climbing the corporate ladder at a GE Capital Company, where he engineered the growth and rapid technological advancement of a large-scale international operation.
Stephen was struck by the volume of candidates that struggled to present themselves successfully in professional interviews. An even bigger surprise was the realization that corporate hiring and retention policies resulted in an often convoluted and chaotic process (what he calls corporate “goo”) that left hiring managers and candidates frustrated and confused. So, with his wife, Sheree, in 2001, he decided to jump off the corporate ladder and embark on an entrepreneurial adventure in the résumé and career services field, where he could be an advocate for professionals.
Over the past 14 years, Stephen has shaped his member solutions to succeed in an ever-changing market but with unique differentiation and value delivery at the core of all client member messaging. Starting out under the No Stone Unturned umbrella, where they served professionals across a wide spectrum of industries, he and Sheree soon recognized a gap in the career services industry in serving the technology, manufacturing, and engineering markets and knew they could fill that gap.
Stephen holds an MBA from Villanova University, a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland, and a Six Sigma Black Belt Certification from GE. He is an Academy Certified Résumé Writer (ACRW) and a Certified Professional Résumé Writer (CPRW). As a Certified Online Professional Networking Strategist (OPNS) and Microblogging Career Strategist (MCS), Stephen is an expert in career marketing through social media forums like LinkedIn and Twitter.
