I have been searching for an Engineering position for the past two months with no luck, so I made the decision to seek professional help with my Resume and Cover Letter. During our first call, Rebecca gave me some feedback on my existing resume and explained how she can strengthen the document to make it more appealing to potential employers. Because she is the first professional I reached out to, I still wanted to "Shop Around" to seek other potential writers. Rebecca was kind enough to explain what I should be looking for IF I didn't decide to pursue her services. This honesty alone was a great factor in my decision to hire her. After my "Shopping Around" I decided to move forward with The Edit Guru. I then had her explain the full process and outline the expectations thoroughly, so that I knew exactly what services were being provided. Her communication and timing have always been clear and spot on, ensuring that each document was delivered when promised. I feel very confident with the new Resume and Cover Letter that I will be finding opportunity very soon. *Note, The better she understands your GOAL, the more she can help you. Communicate and ask questions when needed! Thank You for viewing.
Ellie Schamber mentored me through my graduate prerequisite courses in Psychology as well as my Ph.D. dissertation. She also edited many of my papers and the dissertation. Ellie is a very good writer, and she did an excellent job of both guiding me and editing the manuscript. The dissertation was approved and praised by the academic dean for its writing as well as the content. We are now collaborating on a book, and I am very pleased with her ability to understand abstract ideas and articulate them clearly. Ellie always came on time, over the period of several years, and provided me with the highest quality work.
Darya is great! She helped me prep for the verbal section on the GMAT. She was really patient and taught me very useful tips. She created a in depth study plan that addressed my weakness and kept me motivated. I would totally recommend her.

I was referred to Kaitlin from a coworker who spoke very highly of her and the resume writing and editing services she provided. He received a promotion earlier in the year after working with Kaitlin on his resume and job application materials. I was in the process of applying for a promotion at work and felt my resume, cover letter, and supplemental questions needed some improvements. I contacted Kaitlin and she responded immediately. I had less than a week to meet the deadline to submit my application materials and Kaitlin was available to meet with me several times. I was so appreciative that she could find the time to work with me on such short notice. It was very easy to communicate with her via phone, Skype, and email while we worked on the editing process remotely. I had a very pleasant experience working with Kaitlin. She is very professional, easy to work with, has great writing and editing skills, and will provide you with wonderful guidance throughout the entire process. Kaitlin also provided me with the confidence to do well in the interview process. After reviewing past job experiences in detail and working on a few writing assignments Kaitlin assigned, I was able to identify what I should highlight during my interviews. I walked out of both interviews feeling very confident in myself. After going through the interview process I received great news that I received the promotion! There is no doubt in my mind that a big part of being promoted was due to Kaitlin’s help! I couldn’t have done it without her. I highly recommend Kaitlin’s writing and editorial consulting services to anyone looking for help with their resume and job application materials.

I have had Colleen's help in editing two very different projects: a business proposal and a website, so this is almost two reviews in one. Both were done VERY well - she is a strong technical writer with an eye for professional writing. The website, which was to promote an event I created, was completely different. I wanted it to be really fun and informative. Colleen is creative with an awesome sense of humor and she was perfect for the job. She took my dull content and turned it into something that was actually fun to read. Versatile, fast and smart. I strongly recommend her for your editing or writing needs.
I have found that my enthusiasm for all types of writing, thorough research of topics, and meticulous attention to correct grammar and spelling sets me apart from many other writers one will find on the web. Whether article writing, providing web content, publishing with WordPress, MS Word, MS LiveWriter, or Adobe Acrobat, I am experienced and can fulfill your needs.
