I'm Alexis Ankersen, Founder of Top Dog Career Consultants. After graduating college and spending a few years in the corporate world, I discovered I had a knack for writing and a passion for helping people move forward in their career path. I became a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and established Top Dog in 2018.


My mission is to equip you. I don't want to write your resume and create dependency. I want you to learn along the way so that you become independent and confident to update your resume later on. You have plenty of brag-worthy accomplishments, and I want to help you see how much you have achieved. 


One of my favorite parts of this process is getting to know your career journey and helping you tell your compelling story to employers. Top Dog offers Resume, Cover Letter, and LinkedIn profile writing and is branching into teaching resume writing classes for professionals and aspiring resume writers. We also have additional resources available to further equip you for your career needs.

There are a few things that make me unique if you choose to work with me:

  • I work with you PERSONALLY, internalizing your needs and thoughtfully expressing your unique experience, when other writers may be underpaid contract writers for a resume mill.

  • I carefully select KEY WORDS that help your resume pass the ATS scan (applicant tracking system) that employers have to sift through applications.


  • I take time to learn about your ACCOMPLISHMENTS to actually show (not just tell) that you are the best candidate for the job.


  • I TEACH you along the way, so that you can customize your document in the future.

  • I will FOLLOW UP with you a few months later to see how your job search has been and if I can continue to add value to you.

I specialize in generalist resumes with expertise in healthcare, education, military transition, and federal resumes. However, I have years of experience writing for professionals from entry level to executive level, of all diverse industries.

I hope to get to know you!

Best regards,
