FSR Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the Feng Shui Resume (FSR)?
A: Feng Shui Resume is a progressive template and style of resume writing that takes into account the needs of both the individual and the reader. FSR promises an experience and outcome that delivers on authentic expression and professional storytelling in a manner that is professional and engaging; in a manner that facilitates understanding among readers and energizes the contact. The FSR was crafted by Lori Wallace after twenty years of executive search experience (serving entry level to CEO) and serves the deepest need of connection to self and the world around us.
