FAQs

Why should I hire a professional resume writer?

In today's competitive job market, you need to stand out and get noticed by busy hiring managers, who spend only about 6 seconds looking at your resume. As a certified professional resume writer, I have been trained in best practices that meet the requirements of recruiters, hiring managers, and ATS. I understand how to optimize your resume with relevant industry keywords, create a powerful personal brand that positions you as the expert in your field, and showcase your ability to bring value to an organization. I'll focus on your achievements, so you stand out from the competition.

How does the process work?

We'll schedule an initial consultation to make sure you have a clear target and that we're a good fit to work together. Once I see the scope of your project, I'll prepare a quote. If you accept my proposal, you'll sign the agreement and submit payment. The next step is to fill out a questionnaire and send a copy of your current resume and 2-3 job descriptions. After I review your materials, we'll schedule an interview to clarify details, then I'll begin writing. Within 10 business days, I'll send you a draft for your feedback. We'll work collaboratively through up to 3 rounds of revisions and I'll send you final documents in MS word and PDF.

What makes you different from other resume writers?

As a Nationally Certified Resume Writer (the most rigorous and meaningful credential in the resume writing industry; only 58 worldwide), I have been trained and mentored by the best in the business. I'm also credentialed as a Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (LinkedIn) and Professional Certified Coach and have over a decade of experience in the career services arena. I bring a coach approach to my work and have the ability to listen deeply and ask probing, thought-provoking questions to bring out the best in people. I was a professor for 20 years and am an excellent writer, with an eagle eye for details. My business model is built on providing high-quality service and personal attention to a limited number of clients at a time. I use a collaborative approach that helps you prepare for interviews with confidence. All documents are customized to your target position; I never use templates.
