Amy rebuilt my resume from scratch. I wasn’t sure how to structure it or how to talk about my experiences. I also didn’t realize that I wasn’t highlighting some of my strongest abilities. Amy and I talked about my goals. She helped me focus on the job I wanted. From there she pulled out important skills and showed me how much I underestimate myself. Working with her really helped my confidence. I thought, wow, did I really do that? She also gave me tips and tools so I could tweak my resume down the line. I loved working with her. She’s fun, smart, and laid back. She gets the job done and is fast and focused. I think the most important thing I learned was that I wasn’t showing off my strongest assets. We talked about how to interview and she coached me on how to talk about my resume. For her, everything is a story. She taught me how to tell my story during an interview using situations that showed how I excel as a manager and leader. As I go through interviews and rewrite cover letters for different jobs, I plan on using Amy as much as possible. Thank you Amy!Jan 10, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Typically, resumes are a flat rate, of $25 for the first draft. If there is more back and forth, it's $10 for every rewrite. Tutoring is $25-30 an hour. Editing is $35-50 an hour. I am also available for copy editing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I ask thorough questions to diagnose the customer's needs. Then I listen carefully to discover how much experience they have, where they are on the learning curve, and what they expect to accomplish in our time together. We must be on the same page about their timeline. I can work as quickly as my client's need.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master's in Communication, 25 years of writing experience, and more than a decade of teaching and tutoring experience. My writing background is vast and diverse. I have worked in college settings, for PR agencies, and in advertising, for a number of years. Teaching has made me a better writer and writing makes me a stronger teacher. I love both and can tackle any project with creativity and efficiency.
