Verified review

After 35 years in a particular industry, I suddenly found myself out of work. Needless to say, I was shell shocked and had no idea where to begin. I researched resume writers and found Rebecca. I was very impressed with her advice, her communication skills, and professional approach. She was dedicated, patient, and upbeat. We went through a few revisions in an attempt to reinvent myself and position myself as a candidate who could step into a different position outside of the industry that I had work in for 35 years. Rebecca has my highest recommendation.

Charles is a very talented writer and worked already on a few internationally acclaimed projects, for the BBC and more recently for a world class Cuban opera. Another important skill, he translates very well written ideas into video concepts, he understands well both worlds. I worked with him on a few projects and I will sure use his talents again.

I strongly believe that the ability to write an effective and targeted resume to get the attention of potential employers requires special skills, and Michele definitely possesses these skills. Within a week after she completed my resume, I landed a new job that fit my interests, skills and experience. I am extremely satisfied with Michele's work as a resume writer and highly recommend her.

“In an industry that predicates itself on precision, and yet is too often overwhelmed by those who claim to have mastered it, yet are belied by their tendency to ‘dot their T’s and cross their I’s,’ Michael Mohr cuts through, clears the way, and, in the main, raises the bar. A delight to work with, Michael is that rare breed of editor who understands the literary merits of a work while keeping an eye (not the dotted variety; the kind that provides vision) on what the agency circuit looks for. Still, he doesn’t sacrifice those literary merits simply to satisfy the bottom line demands of the prevailing status quo. In practice, he’s actually providing editorial insights that raise the bar for agents as well. No question we will work with him again, or at least until writers run out of words to craft and commit to paper.” —Ralph Scott, managing partner/executive editor, EDITORO, LLC (editoro.biz)

After seeing several books that Amie Hill has edited in our local bookstore, I asked her to review a memoir I'm working on. She provided excellent line editing and also provided some developmental ideas. While I'm still working on my book, I do recommend her services. She's both skillful and gentle and I believe other writers will find her editing enhances their work.

Verified review

Marian is one of the most ambitious, proactive and provocative writers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. While writing for DBW, she did a great job of eliciting valuable insights from industry thought leaders, identifying worthwhile new media opportunities for authors, and walking the walk when it comes to social media. Don't be fooled by her age; she's smart beyond her years.

Stephanie was a joy to work with. She is an exceptional writer, and works quickly and effectively. She helped Sweetbnbs develop its landing page and web copy, and optimized SEO. We are already experiencing increased web traffic and better organic serach results through her work. She is also highly professional, friendly, and delivers quality work on time. We'd definitely recommend her.

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.

Verified review

John Hickey is a wholly dependable reporter/writer with valuable insights into numerous areas of coverage. But even in areas where he has ample expertise, he approaches each assignment with fresh eyes, does ample research, asks good -- often, probing -- questions and distills it all into an easily understood story that informative, entertaining and enlightening. You'll come to appreciate John's writing style, too. He doesn't talk down to his readers. Rather, he's very much like your neighbor sitting on your porch telling you a story.

Verified review

I have worked with Jeff for the last three years, and he is, without a doubt, one of the best people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. As his supervisor, I worked with him closely, and he consistently delivered products that were high quality. He is always open to feedback, and embodied the voice of our organization in person and via communications (digital, social, etc.). He is passionate about social justice, education, the arts, and was a champion and ally for our students. His playfulness and professionalism made him an invaluable asset to our organization.

Translating, effective written communications, and interpreting involve knowing the language and understanding the context in which the message will be delivered. It is not enough to just know the language, but also the customer, his or her cultural vantage point, and his or her specific needs. My job is to tailor a solution to your communication needs and add value for you.

About

I have more than a decade of professional writing experience, specializing mainly in the Business-to-Business sector, with a special emphasis on the technology industry. I spent 8 years in public relations agency work in the US and UK, drafting bylined articles and case studies which have been published in B2B and trade magazines and journals in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, South Africa, and UAE. Translations of my work have been published in France, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, China, Singapore, and Japan. I also possess several years of experience in general marketing, preparing content for newsletters, email blasts, websites, brochures, catalogs, social media posts, and other marketing avenues. My clients have mostly been in the technology sector - from startups to multi-billion dollar enterprises - but I have also worked with industries ranging from legal services to cleaning and hygiene to adventure travel. The process I employ ensures that I have adequate information to complete the job before starting it, whether the client provides that or I conduct my own background research. I am also a very detail-oriented copy editor. Transparent pricing is offered, preferably by the word but hourly rates can also be negotiated.

About

My motto: "Dry" topics don't have to be dull. My areas of expertise and interest: personal finance, small-biz management, urban planning and environmental issues. They're far from boring to cover -- I've tagged along with a Secret Service agent hunting identity theft gangs online, and got my "investing fortune" read by a palm reader/technology consultant. * I was a staff writer for Self, Money and Red Herring magazines. Now as a San Francisco-based freelancer, I write for print and Web publications including Bankrate, AdvisorMax, Edutopia, Harvard Management Update and MSNBC.com. * On the Internet side, I was editor of Quicken.com, covering finance and small-business topics for 2.5 million users. * All the knowledge I've gained has led me to regular corporate writing assignments. Recent clients include Intuit, Cisco Systems, and the University of California. I have worked as an editor for a custom publishing company, working with clients like Comcast and the Credit Union League of California to create magazines and newsletters for their customers. I also write marketing collateral and business strategies for nonprofit organizations. * I also write and edit for nonprofits, most recently The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Ashoka and the University of California.

The most important part of what I do is maintaining my client's voice and perspective. The deliverable is theirs and it should reflect that. I take great pride in the perfecting the details in a project so that there is no question that the end product is the very best version possible.
