About this pro

How does your service stand out?

The one of the best investments you can make in yourself is to have your resume revamped. Your ROI (return on investment), when the endeavor is done mindfully and professionally, has the potential to be astronomical! I not only provide the service that gets you the interview, but equally important, you will be supported by a new-found level of confidence in yourself and your abilities. Yes, I provide documents that will catapult you to the next level in your career. And, I can also help you reclaim a level of confidence that will increase your interview success. Every client is important; every goal is regarded with the utmost respect and presence. I provide more than writing and editing services; with me, you gain the benefit of a PhD in Psychology. This means I have a vested interest in getting you to the next phase of your life. Empathy, wisdom, and vision guide my work. Advice and coaching occur as a free service in the context of whatever service you require. I select my potential clients carefully. I only submit messages to people I know I can help, without question. If you are reading these words, you are close to taking the next steps. Contact me and you will get there. I have spent over 15 years perfecting my craft. I don't farm work out. I am my only employee. With me, you have a go-to editor for as long as you require. Hey, both the consultation and analysis are free. What do you have to lose?

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love being able to help people quickly make substantive changes in their lives. Career changes, school admissions, degree completion—the written word is my realm. I spent many years obtaining a PhD only to realize that inherent in the clinical relationship is a need to keep people sick to a certain degree (i.e., coming back and paying for more counseling). I couldn't in good conscience pursue that route, so I pivoted my skills and found my true calling. I have helped 1000s of people springboard into their next life phase. Let me help you, too!

    Rebecca was wonderful to work with to get my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile updated. It had been years since I had them updated and she helped guide me along the process, answered questions about how things have changed over the years and what recruiters look for. I now feel confident when sending out my resume and look forward to working with her again if I need updates done in the future.

    After seeing the final draft of my resume revise, it was clear to me that I had made a worthy investment in myself by utilizing Rebecca’s services. Her wording and phrasing was on point and accurate—verbally highlighting my skills and abilities in words I would have never uttered about myself. She understood my accomplishments intellectually and instinctively. Thanks to Rebecca’s expertise, I’m now in the running for executive level and managerial positions.

    With the help of Rebecca's expertise, I was accepted to medical school and to be completely honest I could not have done it without her! I wanted to thank her so much for helping me throughout this long process (almost one year)! She truly made me the best applicant I could be from writing a new personal statement and editing my entire application along with CV, to writing and editing over 100 secondary application and even helping prepare a stellar personal statement for a prestige summer research position at Harvard! Words can not express how thankful I am to have had Rebecca as my personal professional writer. I really could not have done it without her. I wanted to thank her for being so patient with me and always ready to give me a pep talk and making me believe that this was all possible. I wanted to tell you all this over the phone, but I would have gotten too emotional and started crying because of how amazing she is and how she played such an integral role in helping me achieve my dream(s). So instead I am crying tears of appreciation and joy while I write this review. Thank you Rebecca! :)
    Rebecca K. May 24, 2017

    Holy moly, Antony! That might be the nicest feedback, ever! I am thrilled you got the internship to Harvard as well as acceptance into medical school. That is absolutely phenomenal.

    My son is about to graduate from college and with today’s competing job market, I wanted to make sure he started off on the right foot with a good solid job resume. Let’s face it, at 21, the most experience these young adults have in the workforce is limited at best and it’s hard to compete when you can’t translate your skills to real tangible experience. So I began my hunt to find a service that could help me build a resume that could showcase his skills and make him marketable. I did a search on Google and came across a website called “Thumbtack”. Thumbtack asks you to describe your project and they go out and find companies that can provide the service you’re looking for. Low and behold, I was sent 10 or more different companies along with quotes to review. I was immediately drawn to “The Edit Guru”. Rebecca is the owner and was not only very responsive, but she went the extra mile and handled every single little detail from the cover letter, to resume, and finally to his LinkedIn profile. She actually created a new profile for him! My biggest fear throughout this process was that my son would be shy and not great at talking about himself, but with Rebecca’s background and experience, my fears were put to rest. She did an amazing job! I would highly recommend Rebecca, “The Edit Guru” to anyone looking for a new resume or revamping an existing one. Resume writing is an art and she definitely knows how to get the job done in s spectacular fashion. Thank you so much Rebecca for all your hard work!! I'll definitely be back!

    This review is long overdue as I waited to see what types of attention my resume would draw before I left a comment. Since Rebecca completed my resume in a quick and efficient manner, I have had numerous contact opportunities and interview offers since I started actively job searching with the new resume. My old resume was outdated and I received zero attention on my original resume that I created in college. Rebecca's work is impeccable and she deserves every bit of the 5 stars (and then some) that I gave her. The new resume has given me hope that I will find the perfect job more sooner than later. Thank you Rebecca!

To start the process, Rebecca conducted an interview with me to understand the scope of the assignment and my business background/philosophy. Next, we agreed on fee and timing. Then she went to work, delivering a draft resume to me that was amazing and about 85% complete! We tweaked the draft a few times for accuracy and tone, and I now have an outstanding final product. Rebecca is easy to work with, efficient, highly professional, and provides excellent value and insight. She's great!

I have all confidence in Rebecca's skill and expertise, and now have the quality documents with which to kick-start my job search.

    UPDATE:SECOND PROJECT Rebecca Kovan has extraordinary talent. She truly is the edit guru. This is the second project working with Rebecca in updating my CV and the first time helping me create essays that were engaging, well written, eloquent, and enjoyable to read. Without a doubt, Rebecca is someone you can count on. In fact, the outcome from the first project resulted in 4/4 interviews. One interviewer commented on how much they were impressed by my CV and cover letter. I’m positive that I will receive good results from the current project, my predoc internship. Rebecca is responsive, open and supportive, fast with her edits and feedback, and I would go to her for future projects. Her service is above and beyond excellent. FIRST PROJECT REVIEW Dr. Kovan has impressed me with her writing and editing skills! I wish I could rate my overall experience with additional stars because she did a phenomenal job! To trust someone to revamp my CV and Cover letters within a few days in order to meet a specific deadline was scary and stressful at first, but once she broke down the steps in a collaborative and encouraging manner, my anxiety decreased! Within 24 hours, she produced a jaw dropping, Beautiful CV that I could not have ever imagined would have my name attached at the top! Her overall performance and service is worth every penny, I can assure you! Furthermore, to receive a professional, articulate, creative, and strategic cover letter was beyond what I expected. I can't say enough POSITIVES about this entire experience working with Dr. Kovan! She truly is the EDIT GURU!

    You Should Hire Edit Guru
    Edit Guru was super speedy and responsive and I love the end result. She was able to take my mess of a resume that hadn't been updated much since I graduated college and made me look like the experienced professional I am today! I applied for an internal promotion from senior management to corporate executive and I couldn't feel more confident about my chances at scoring this job. For the amount of work she had to put in to make the paper version of me truly reflect my professional accomplishments and qualifications, she probably charged me too little. Great price for top quality work!

    Top notch service, fantastic finished product!
    I'd not updated my resume for years, having been fortunate enough to remain in a good place for a long time. It seemed a far more daunting task than I was interested in tackling, and also decided I'd reached a point where I was comfortable handing this off to a professional; as confident as I am with my own writing skills, I also realize that I don't do this for a living and deferring to an expert in the field might serve me well. I spoke with Rebecca at length about the resume I provided for her, and the changes I wanted made. She provided me with several drafts until we agreed on a final version that ticked all the necessary boxes, as well as a few others I'd not considered. I anticipate receiving an offer letter for the desired position next week, and believe firmly that my new resume was a key factor in things shaking out the way they have. I couldn't be more satisfied with the results Rebecca provided, and highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a hand taking that next step. Best regards, Jesse Koehler

    Not impressed, sorry.
    While the Edit Guru is nice, we had hard times connecting and getting my resume done. I don't love the final - she used a lot of "copy and paste" phrases, not really directed to my field. I feel she cut and pasted, and when we did the final draft, I was doing the editing. I sent my resume to Morgan Stanley, and the person was completely honest, and said this resume does not reflect your accomplishments, so I have to spend another $270 or somewhere there to get an expert that really understands what I did, and doesn't just use a copy and paste on the Cover Letter. She was very nice, but I feel like I needed a top rated resume, and it is not what I got.
    Rebecca K. Dec 29, 2016

    I am the one who should be sorry for not following my intuition. Ten hours later, more phone calls and drafts than I can count, your review is a bit of a kick to the solar plexus. I bend over backwards for my clients. I guarantee my work. People are free to come back to me with changes at any time. Two-hundred-plus 5-star reviews are not wrong.

    Nothing wrong with the experience, but nothing stands out. Basically it was an average experience, but I've not used a service before so did not know what to expect. I would have liked a more proactive approach to creating something more dynamic than a simple rewrite of my existing resume. Perhaps I should have engaged more to create that expectation. Very straightforward and easy to deal with, and very responsive via email/text/thumbtack.

    OK, mama bear is out again. Noah, we were on draft one! The plan was for you to get back to me. I do appreciate your correspondence regarding this matter, which I am copy / pasting below. To potential clients, please know I take feedback very, very seriously. To some, 3-stars is acceptable. To me it is not. I provide 5-star work. Thumbtack has had some platform issues in terms of the feedback function, pushing out notifications to clients and not giving the pro control on when to send it out. This feedback occurred because my client received the notification; he thought the process was complete, which it was not. I urge you all to read my other feedback to obtain a more accurate picture of the service I provide. Over the course of my career I am responsible for 10s of millions of dollars in pay increases. That is a fact of which I am incredibly proud. You too can reap the rewards of a more meaningful career, with better pay. Revamping your resume with someone worth his or her salt is one of the best personal investments you can make in yourself--the returns are astronomical, and I would argue that you are worth it! ------------------------------------------------- My Response: We were not finished. Your review is problematic. That is my reputation I have worked ridiculously hard to build--and as a single mom, to boot. You were supposed to get back to me. That is how we left the last conversation, which I though went well. Wow! Just wow. Client Response: I'm sorry, thumbtack sent me the review and I thought that was the end. I've never used this site before so not certain what to expect or how it exactly works. I am happy to remove it. Can you guide me on how to amend/remove the review? Thank you for your help!

    I am impressed with Rebecca. She listened to what I wanted and the 1st draft was good. I talked to her via email and phone with edits I wanted and to clear up miscommunication. The 2nd draft was fine and was going to be the final version. However, After I reread it the next morning, I wanted a few more edits. She had no problems with it. During the whole process, we went back and forth on words and phrases to use and most of the time we used her suggestions. I am happy with her and the resume she created. When I apply for a job I will be confident sending my resume out If you need a resume, and feel uncomfortable writing one about yourself. Hire Rebecca

    After requesting a quote to revamp mu current resume with a lift, The Edit Guru offered her services to me at a market rate and I expected quality, so I accepted her services among three others. There was no shortfalls to any of her rewrite and suggestions for edits, she delivered an exceptional first draft that was as promised a revamp of my resume. She delivered the final draft about a month ago. Since then, I distributed to approximately 20 jobs and received 6 interviews with 4 advancing to final round. Prior to her edits, I had sent my resume to 75 jobs with 1 interview. Overall, I highly recommend The Edit Guru for your resume edits. I plan to hire The Edit Guru for another editing project soon. Also, the Edit Guru has a great personality when working with you on the phone with your edits, totally worth a nice chat with a smart writer!

    Rebecca took the time to explain the process and understand my area of expertise, including information from the industry, prior to producing a first draft. The first draft identified areas that could use additional support or specific information. In addition, Rebecca followed up with a call to see if I had any more questions or comment. The response time for a second draft was remarkable, within a couple of hours after I provided additional information. The final product looks sharp, professional, and to the point. It highlights the most important aspects of my expertise and does not require a reader to decipher the expertise based on previous job titles and experience.

    And my 5-star reign ends. I spoke to this client about the rating as I was perplexed (I can't help it. I provide 5-star service, at a minimum, and felt the need to investigate.) The data I had did not make sense. He had referred me to his family members and colleagues. He was called for interviews the same day he submitted his new documents. He was offered his dream job. You would think that would typically merit a 5-star rating. I asked him what fell short in his mind. He said nothing fell short, that he was thrilled with my work and service. He went on to explain that he never, ever gives 5-stars (or the maximum rating) to anyone or anything because that implies perfection, and only Gd is perfect. Point taken, Kawther!

    I can’t say enough about how great and professional Rebecca is. I needed help on completing my thesis. She immediately knew what I needed to send her so that she would be able to understand how to help me get it to where it needed to be. She knew exactly how to find very specific data points which I had not been able to find even after hours of searching on my own. Rebecca also helped me understand what sections needed to be beefed up and backed by data and also when certain data points made certain concepts more confusing and were unnecessary. I like to meet and speak to people face to face as that really helps me. Rebecca allowed me to meet her in person which she usually does not do. The time we spent looking over it together was extremely beneficial for dissecting the entire paper. Rebecca would also look over the paper on her own and then return it back with many suggestions. One of the areas that was the most difficult was the formatting of the paper. Theses are a real pain in the butt to format in a very particular way. Rebecca’s work in this area allowed me to focus on the writing and leave the subtle nuances of formatting to her to make sure that I was following the thesis parameters. When it came closer to the deadline, she was so awesome in moving around her schedule to help me make sure that I met my deadline! I definitely would not have been able to finish in time or come out with the quality paper that I had, without her help! Rebecca is extremely responsive and would always get back to me within a couple hours. She may cost a little more than others but in terms of what she can do for you it is worth every dollar! I would definitely recommend her to anyone that needs help composing any sort of challenging paper. Super-efficient and extremely knowledgeable. She also understands how university professors think, which is a huge advantage!

She has high attention to detail and has a way with words; her work will reflect this. Next I will take you through my experience with her process: 1) Screening on phone. Be clear in your objective and time frame required for completion to ensure transparency. 2) Send Rebecca links of what opportunities you are interested in as well as your current resume/CV and cover letter (if you have one) to give her an idea of what your qualifications are. She will send you a quote 3) Accept quote. 4) Rebecca will send you a draft of your new resume. Very great work! 5) Give feedback on resume. Make adjustments together 6) Receive cover letter draft and make adjustments together. 7) Write a review and rate the experience! I recommend coming to Rebecca sooner rather than later because she is in high demand. Also, you probably want to allow time to go back and forth with suggestions of what could be done in the final product, without stressing over a time restriction. Regardless, she can work quick and effectively if you are in a crunch, so do not hesitate to reach out to her if that is your situation! Just be clear with what your requirements are. I highly recommend Rebecca for her resume and cover letter service, as she is able to understand your qualifications as well as the requirements for your desired opportunity. She then prepares the work in a way that highlights what qualifications you have that are exactly what the opportunity is calling for. She will help you sell yourself well.

    Dr. Kovan was exceptional! She took the time to research and understand my field and the specific job for which I was applying and she was able to efficiently highlight my strengths relative to the requirements of that job and other jobs in my field. She was always professional, honest, and involved me in the process every step of the way. In each draft of my material, she honored my input and made sure the draft reflected what we spoke about in prior phone and email conversations. That resulted in a final draft that was exceptionally written, well formatted, and overall remarkable. I would be remiss if I were not to mention that she kept her timeline for completion of the project. I had a choice between Dr. Kovan and another editor who also had good reviews, but I knew she was the one I should hire to do the job after my initial consultation with her. Not only is she professional, but she is kind, motivated, and warm. I highly recommend her.

    Rebecca wrote an original resume, cover letter and profile for LinkedIn. I have been working at the same employer for 21 years, so I did not have a current resume. She spent a lot of time interviewing me and reviewing some documents I provided. She was able to capture the essence of my experience and turn it into very professional and unique documents. I am now very confident that I can search for appropriate opportunities since I have a resume that truly captured the breath of my experience in a concise and professional way. I know as someone who has reviewed hundreds of resumes from potential candidates that I would want to talk to me. That is what one wants from a resume. Just the opportunity to get in front of someone. It was a very enjoyable and personable experience working with Rebecca on this most important project. I could not be more pleased with the results. Though significantly more expensive that many competitors the product she produced far exceeded my expectations and is worth every penny. A resume represents the window to your future, so don't short change yourself, work with Rebecca.

    What a great experience! Rebecca was responsive and thorough. I've never hired a resume writer before, so I didn't know what to expect. At first, I was a little apprehensive about it. However, it quickly became evident that i had nothing to worry about. If you just want it done, without putting any effort into the process, you won't be happy with the results. But if you are willing to work as a team and collaborate with Rebecca, you will be extremely pleased with the results. I've gotten rave reviews of my new resume and cover letter. Consequently, I have been able to refer 4 people to her in 5 days. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am. The turnaround time was surprising as it was over the 4th of July holiday. We exchanged thoughts and versions for the better part of two days until we were both satisfied. The best part was that in sharing my philosophies with Rebecca, she was able to incorporate who I am and what I stand for into my cover letter. She was able to express what I could not. As for her pricing, I found it extremely reasonable for the quality of work and the quality experience. If you want cheap, you'll get what you pay for. Do yourself a favor and reach out to Rebecca if you're considering having your resume done. It's well worth the time and money. I'll let you know the outcome of my search once it's over. Thank you, Rebecca!!!

    Though I was apprehensive at first, my experience with Rebecca was nothing short of outstanding. She was always extremely prompt when it came to responding to emails. She was very helpful with insights into the HR mindset, interview suggestions, and much, much more. The overall timeliness was excellent - she told me she could start on a specific date, and had a draft to me the following day. She consulted with me to make sure it was a good representation and discuss specifics, and the relevant phone call was on time and very informative. I feel that she got a good sense of my strengths and weaknesses and translated that well into the resume. Obviously (given the positive tone of this review), the resume she wrote seems excellent and was everything I was looking for. In the spirit of full disclosure, at the time of this review I have yet to get an opportunity to use it, but I have confidence that it is the best representation of what I can bring to the table that I have had. I've purchased the services of two other professionals for resume writing / revision, and though one of them did improved my resume, Rebecca's work is by far the best out of the three and also the most tailored to the sort of jobs I am interested in. I can't personally vouch for her skills other than resume writing(that's what the other reviews are for), but I would definitely recommend her to any friend needing editing services.

    Rebecca is a true professional with a lot of patience skill and humanity. I am transitioning into a new field and my confidence is very low. Her ability to listen and put into meaningful context my experience was so effective. She wrote a resume and cover letter that exceeded my hopes for a comprehensive picture of my experiences and relevance for my new beginning as a Disability Advocate. She was kind, precise, patient, knowledgeable and quick. I am so grateful. Please know you will be supported, heard and helped and have a well done resume and cover letter when you call upon Rebecca.

    Rebecca was the very professional I was looking for. I absolutely loved the phone conversations and the hard editing my resume and cover letter needed. Rebecca truly cares about her clients and it shows in her final product and expedition of work. I will be recommending her to anyone who is seeking services she provides. As for me, going from no responses applying to jobs to 3 responses in one day plugging in my new resume, I cannot sing Rebecca's praises loud enough. Thank you, Rebecca, for your compassion, your awesome work, and for being the real deal!

    Rebecca is well deserving of her many five star ratings. For a nominal price, she took my plain old CV and turned it into a sterling professional resume. She even included a discounted cover letter. For the quality she produces at an equally impressive speed, she deserves commendations and your business. She is also diligent in giving speedy replies, hence the short turn around time. All around a great investment.

    I am forever grateful for meeting Rebecca and the incredible work that she produces. I am writing this review at almost 1:00 am, which is actually a true testament to Rebecca's dedication. At approximately 8:00 pm I reached out to Rebecca in such a panic because I was in a serious bind. I had a writing assignment that was due at midnight and the person I initially hired for the project did an awful job. Rebecca stopped everything she was doing and came to my rescue! Not only did she turn the essay completely around... she completed it with time leftover to make any edits! BTW - the paper did not need any edits with the first draft she sent to me. I assure you to look no further if you are looking for someone who is professional, caring and an expert in her field! You will not be disappointed!
    Rebecca K. May 5, 2015

    I make pudding out of horsesh*t; it's part of what I do. If I had a dollar for every time I had to clean up after an incompetent editor, I would be able to retire. You are very welcome, Katrina. My aim is to please, to get the job done right the first time, and to obtain results. Trifecta! Best, Rebecca Job: Admissions Essay: MBA (clean up after another TT 'editor' botched the job).

    Rebecca assisted me in rewriting my resume and was amazing. Her prices were competitive and she works very quickly. In the time it took for her to send me my first draft the other resume writers were still trying to determine a quote. Rebecca did a great job completely overhauling my resume while still taking my comments/requests into account. She understood and implemented exactly what I was looking for. Her knowledge of job search and resume writing is unsurpassed.

    I was looking forward to working with Rebecca. I think I caught her on an off week as she had a delayed start, then fell behind due to personal issues. I had expected a resume writer to spend a few minutes interviewing me to get an idea of "me", my tone and how I wanted to be represented. She basically took my existing resume, then added two jobs that weren't on the resume. The second of which she did not get right at all. There were typo's on the document. I basically paid a lot of money for a boiler plate resume.

    Rebecca is very nice, detail-oriented and patient. She keeps frequent communication with me throughout the editing procedure (there is no solid deadline for my work. Nice to be notified of the progress). She is very responsive. Her editing style is more than grammar check and proofreading , it's reorganizing and rewriting (at least to my essays). She did an excellent work editing my three JD application essays. She would also ask you for feedback for her work so that she can absorb your ideas before the final proofread. Very satisfied!! Strongly recommend her!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Communication, collaboration, and quality.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am always researching. Every job requires outside research if it is to be done properly. If others are not taking that step, look elsewhere.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I need to see the document before quoting a price. How can a person quote a price without knowing the project's scope? It always boggles my mind when "pros" submit bids for gigs, sight unseen. That is a huge red flag.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started editing my colleagues' papers in graduate school. After earning my degree, I pivoted to editing and writing so I could help more people in a manner that results in measurable changes (e.g., a new job that increases income by 50K / year).
What types of customers have you worked with?
Resumes and cover letters are the most frequent service I provide through Thumbtack. Entry into school via admissions essays is the second most frequent service I provide through Thumbtack. Assistance with degree completion is the third most frequent service. That conveyed, I do it all. I have the education, demeanor, and insight to help you realize lasting change.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Resume: Client was recently hired as President of a large fitness company (verifiable). Interviews rolled in within a few days of submission. The client had several offers. He claims the resume / cover letter as well as his increased confidence were responsible for the outcome. Not too shabby! Education: Most recent was two-pronged for the same person: (a) entry into Columbia graduate school from admission statement preparation, then (b) receipt of $14,000 in money from scholarship statement preparation, which was the highest amount ever granted to a first year graduate student in the history of the program. Also, I helped a young man get accepted into Harvard Medical School by providing exceptional admission essay services. I helped a mid career woman score an executive position at Facebook by providing exceptional resume and cover letter services. I helped a student finally get past the dissertation hurdle by providing efficient and on-point dissertation editing. Frankly, there are too many success stories to list, as all of my clients have reaped success in one form or another.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Go with your instincts.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
READ CLIENT FEEDBACK!!! There is no substitute for the conveyed experiences of others. Ask yourself this...Are you willing to pay for quality work? Finding an exceptional editor / writer is actually quite difficult, as we are few and far between. What better place to invest in than yourself?
