About Us

A. P. Human Resources Consulting, LLC is here to assist you with your organization.  We have guided countless clients to help them achieve their Human Resources goals.  Our practice is to examine what organizations are doing to stay competitive in this fast-paced world, and which ones are doing it best in the industry.  Then we strategize using smart tools and resources to understand the implications of every choice our clients can make in their organization.   

It all started by offering individual services such as mock interviews, career planning, and resume writing services.  To become a full-service one-stop organization we took on small start-up companies and large firms.  Although we have grown since our founding, we are still the same company at heart.  We approach each of our clients with fresh eyes to develop customized and unique strategies for their organization.  

In today's economy, no organization should be without a Human Resources Department.  We are proud to announce our monthly Human Resources Subscriptions.  There is a package to accommodate the size of any organization.  Our Consultants are on-call to assist you with your staff and organization.  You can count on our team to give you the best insights into your organization's future.  Also, for the busy on-the-go Entrepreneur and small start-up companies, we have introduced the new Virtual HR Assistant to our HR Subscriptions package.
