Joseph Buss


Competitive Edge Resume Service was started by me, Joseph Buss, a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago. After College, I served active duty Army for six years, leaving at the rank of Staff Sergeant. Since then, I have spent the last 20 years working in Logistics management. I have worked in both manufacturing and distribution environments, and know the Chicago Labor Market well.


Joe condensed my monstrosity of a resume to one page, something I didn't think was possible.
