Marcelle Yeager | President


Marcelle is passionate about helping mid- to executive level professionals land jobs that get them to the next level of their career. At Career Valet, she works with clients on their branding strategy and job search materials to secure new roles. This has led to many successes, including a senior director becoming the COO of a start-up and the CFO of a small firm becoming a VP in a $12B company. She co-founded a second business in 2015, ServingTalent, a boutique recruiting firm for top U.S. military and foreign service (diplomat) spouses. Before becoming an entrepreneur, Marcelle did her fair share of job searching and career exploration, eventually spending many years in strategic communications at a Washington, D.C. public affairs firm and Booz Allen Hamilton. She also worked as a civilian at the Department of Defense and the U.S. Embassy in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Marcelle has worked abroad for over six years, including in Russia and Chile.

Marcelle holds an MBA from the University of Maryland College Park and a BA from Georgetown University. She is a regular contributor to ClearanceJobs, a former weekly contributor to the U.S. News and World Report On Careers blog, and has been featured in MONEY Magazine, AOL Jobs, Business Insider, Monster, MSN, and FlexJobs. She is a certified professional resume writer (CPRW).

Marcelle constructively critqued my existing resume, interviewed me in detail to understand my work experience and accomplishments, and then recrafted my resume to ensure I was communicating my capabilities clearly in a manner that would add value to an organization. She also architected a LinkedIn profile for me during the same two week engagement. Marcelle is extremely professional, keeps the tasks on track, and does all of the heavy lifting. I was extremely pleased with the results and highly recommend her company’s services.
