    MR is engaging, warm and highly knowledgeable about resumes and interviewing preparations. I took copious notes during our one on one and valued her insight and thoughtfulness in creating a resume' for me. My resume and cover letter frankly have given me a boost of confidence because MR lays out the years of hard work and accomplishments to shine brightly. While I'm not aggressively job seeking now, I feel more than prepared to launch with my resume' all set to go! I've already referred colleagues to her, one of which remarked too how blown away she was with the entire experience.

    Highly recommended! My resume needed a boost and some modernization. After the resume face lift, I received several compliments on how good it looked. Beyond just the visual styling, the advice I received about how to market myself was invaluable. I start my new job in just a few weeks! Can't wait.

    Outstanding experience. I'd posted my old resume to multiple sites and used it for multiple job postings with no response. Within the first 5 applications I sent out with my new resume, I received a phone interview. Quality product, professional experience. Thanks!

    Mary Ruth helped me with a resume update and the improvement was dramatic. She provided multiple formats to choose, and helped with a final recommendation. In addition to creatively rewriting and tailoring the content, she asked questions and found new areas to consider.

    Maryruth arranged a face to face interview with me to get to know me and find out what direction I wanted to go in my career. She was very personable and helpful. After she gathered all of my information, she started on my resume immediately. She sent me a draft, made a few corrections and sent me my final resume within 2 days! I am very grateful for her assistance. Thank you Maryruth!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My standard hourly rate is $75/hour for social media management. Resume writing service fees are based on the specifics of your request (Resume page 1 = $99, Resume page 2+ = $29 each page, Cover Letter = $29, References = $29, Portfolio = $29). I'm also happy to negotiate with new clients on the pricing, if they have a specific budget to maintain.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I typically begin with a 1-hour interview (either in-person or over the phone), which allows me to get to know my client and find out their career goals/needs. Follow-up calls and emails are done throughout the process, as needed. My goal is to get as close to perfect as possible on the 1st draft, but I give up to 3 drafts to my clients. Final versions are given in either Pages or Word format, and also in PDF.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Journalism degree (cum laude) from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, Athens. I also earned a Masters of Business Administration in Marketing from the Williams College of Business at Xavier University, Cincinnati.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have 20+ years of corporate experience in marketing, communications, project management, and sales. I started my own consulting business in Nov 2014 and love helping my clients!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Real estate brokers, Metal Finishing company, Gourmet candy maker, Memorabilia and Custom Framing company, Custom Carpentry/ Home Improvement Contractor, Educators, Military Veterans, Healthcare Administrators, etc.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure to check references and/or online referrals. Also, be sure to meet with the vendor in person before paying them any money. It's critical that you feel comfortable with your vendor.
