Hi Karen,

You have described what you know how to do.  To get people to
sit up and take notice, I suggest you describe what results that
has generated - what successes you have had in those 9 months
of experience, how they have enabled your clients/customers to
do something better/different/etc. - and how you can do the same
or better for others.

Just a thought ...
