Tamara Dowling, Founder


Tamara Dowling launched SeekingSuccess.com in 2000. The resume writing company has evolved from a desk in her Manhattan Beach home to an in-demand company with a team of writers catering to executives, highly qualified technology professionals, and career changers. 

Tamara's latest book, "Tackling the Tech Job Search: Tactics for Anyone from Analysts to Execs," was released in July 2017. In addition to her career guides, such as "Interview with Purpose" and “Resumes for Recent Grads,” she has contributed to six career books, including “Cover Letters for Dummies.” She has written thousands of résumés and she has served as a writing trainer for one of the largest career services companies in the US. She has won multiple TORI (Toast of the Résumé Writing Industry) awards and nominations. In 2017, Tamara's blog was recognized by Feedspot.com as one of the "top 50" resume writing blogs.

She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Texas Christian University and has been writing resumes professionally since 1999. Beyond the business, Tamara enjoys Pilates and paddleboarding.
