If you’re looking for someone who:
- Understands the ins-and-outs of the executive hiring funnel
- Is a top-flight copywriter who thrives on turning the written word into an experience
- Writes not to “fill up space” but drive conversion and action
- Is ruthless with clichés, fluff and typos
…you’ve come to the right place.
Nadine Yong founded The Resume Builder (TRB) Singapore in 2011. She cut her teeth in journalism at Singapore’s largest print media outlets before finding her calling as a career communications specialist.
Her clientele is uniquely diverse, hailing from tech to banking and financial services, manufacturing, telecommunications, FMCG, energy, logistics and many others. They work across sales and marketing, accounting, operations, HR, risk & compliance all the way to the C-level.
One thing they share: talent. The other thing they have in common: a lack of clarity in their professional brand – a major stumbling block to executive job search success.
She is a huge believer in the art of storytelling, not in the sense of having a neatly packaged tale to tell (because life is seldom linear!), but in weaving meaning and authenticity into what we say to ourselves and to others.
In her free time, Nadine enjoys reading, especially about economics, ethics, the modern banking system and her most recent interest: cryptocurrency. And like every bookworm, she can’t resist sharing her favorite reads: The Truth Machine: The Blockchain and The Future of Everything, The Tech Whisperer, Thank God for Bitcoin: The Creation, Corruption and Redemption of Money as well as Iceland’s Secret: The Untold Story of the World’s Biggest Con.
Nadine's big "why":
The more people find joy and fulfilment doing the jobs they love, the better the world works.
