Rebecca did an amazing job on my resume. She spent a significant amount of time combing over the details and writing up what, I can easily say, is the best version of my resume I have ever had. In addition, the cover letter is beautifully written and designed. Would I recommend Rebecca? Absolutely and without hesitation. If you're looking for someone to write your resume, you'd be foolish to pass Rebecca up.

Textrous was responsive and even checking in with me more than I checked in with her. She gave great comments and formatting tips. I was very thankful to have Textrous editing my thesis (APA format) through my own stress.

Anish is hands down the best tutor in this area! I needed someone to tutor me for the GRE and he was exceptional. His teaching style and experience is exactly what you need to score high on the exam. Additionally, he offered to edit my personal statements for graduate schools. His feedback was amazing and he responds in a timely manner. Due to his help, I was able to write the perfect statement and score in the 90th percentile. I am going to attend my dream graduate program in the fall and I have a lot to thank him for. I am forever grateful for this tutor and his dedication to help people!

I've been CEO of my late husband's SaaS business for the last ten years. As such, it's been a long time since I've written a resume. I was in total chaos selling my business and looking for a new career. Brian, helped me layout all the responsibilities and positions that I preformed during my tenure at the software company along with my own 20 years in the hospitality industry. Brian was great to work. He is warm and well versed in career coaching, resume writing and helpful hints on interviewing. His process consisting of a two hour interview, a follow-up review session, and as many drafts and edits as needed. I also had him re-create my LinkedIn profile, cover letter, and recommended resources for successful interviews. The end product was excellent and concise. His rates are reasonable,. He is a talented man with a wealth of experience. I recommend him. I've already gotten two interviews in one week.

As a first time author, I must say, that being guided by Jim Baldwin was one of the best decisions I made in self-publishing. He helped me clarify my story in ways I had little if any experience. He asked great questions so as to clearly understand the topics of my writing. He provided positive feedback encouraging me that my story was meaningful. Without changing any thought, feeling or intention he was able to help me convey my point more clearly and with better impact. I learned a great deal by working with Jim about the impact sentence structure had on content and how less words were often more powerful and direct. He was also calm, caring and showed great interest in my story as well as being open to working collaborative with the other members on my team. I am eager to work with him on future books.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you hire a good grant writer?

    Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

    • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
    • Strong writing skills.
    • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
    • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
    • Expertise in your target area.
    • Punctuality and good communication skills.

    How much does a grant writer cost?

    Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

    • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
    • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
    • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
    • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

    Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

    Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
