When you've built your career around your personal network and haven't used a resume in a long time - at some point you'll realize that it limits your options. Recruiters and headhunters DO look at your LinkedIn profile, and DO ask for a resume because that's the currency for their internal systems. And if they don't like what they see - you're just another number in their internal system that gets the "decline" button. These decisions are made within a few seconds. that's what happened to me. I worked 13 years for a brand name consultancy, and then another 8 years in the venture ecosystem. Nobody clearly EVER asked me for my resume. They knew who I was. But I started to realize that I was missing out on potential opportunities simply because my linkedin was pretty skinny. Invest forward, brush up your resume now, don't wait until somebody knocks on your door. You'll actually notice an increase in inbounds when you get a professional to re-write your resume. I worked with Rebecca to get my resume and LinkedIn profile an overhaul. here's the result: https://www.linkedin.com/in/larskamp/ (as of April 2020) I purely selected Rebecca based on reviews on Thumbtack - but that decision paid off many times over, and I now know why she has such a stellar rating! We spend "quality time" on the phone on my professional history, Rebecca re-wrote my resume to feature accomplishments, not activity. She put a lot of time into it, and we worked together on the different iterations. Just the process of figuring out your accomplishments will make you realize how much you've actually done in your professional live. It's a confidence booster. You can't go wrong working with Rebecca, it's an investment that will pay off for your career.

The Edit Guru - Dr. Kovan, Is very professional and you can tell she takes pride with every stroke of the keyboard on your resume and really cares for someone to find their next career they are looking for. As a student trying to get in to career of my field of study, Dr. Kovan is responsive to my feedback and requests that I received from recruiters when working with me on my resume and even provided with very beneficial tips to help me land more interviews, which was an sweet addition to her excellent resume writing skills. Dr. Kovan guarantees her work and is worth every penny. I recommend her to all my friends when they are asking where to look for work, I always tell them to start with the Edit Guru first before applying to where! Your Resume is your first impression to any company, if you are a dedicated, strong, intelligent, and passionate person; you want someone like Dr. Kovan to help you get that message across to your future employer.

Prior to Rebecca, I hired Evolution Coaching, a resume, career, and writing competitor. I have never been so disappointed. The whole experience felt rushed (having only a week's worth of time to review and provide feedback to their drafts and even feels shorter than that when the writer takes 2-3 days to respond...and you have to remind them to send back the drafts...), unprofessional, blatantly generic/vague, and honestly, just a complete waste of time and money. I got no added value and ended up with a product worse than what I started with. I have not used their recent work in any capacity; I kept what I had. I have never written a review before but I felt as though I needed to warn others about the horrible experience I had and encourage others to go with a complete, incomparable alternative - Rebecca. Please do yourself a favor. You will not regret it! She is nothing short of lifesaver. She is extremely responsive (with both e-mails and turnaround drafts), kind, personable, humble, easy-going, observant, detail-oriented, diligent, and most importantly, serious and passionate about her work. I could go on. She guided me through the process and worked around my schedule numerous times and allowed me to take my time with reviewing her drafts. Her insightful and creative ways to phrase and highlight personal accomplishments, work experience, etc. is unlike any other. Thank you so much, Rebecca! Will definitely be using her again for any future needs!

Taylor, I'm so glad you gave Thumbtack another chance and reached out again for services. I am doubly glad we ended up working together. I can't tell you how many times I have cleaned up other pros' messes. Your timing for the review is impeccable, following the previous dissertation of misguided arrogance and borderline reputation-smearing. Hopefully people are savvy enough to glean the essence of what I offer, which is full service and support. I am honored to have been able to help you. Please don't hesistate to contact me in the future. You are sure to further your wonderful contributions to this world. Life is too short for anything other. Misogyny has no place. I am so glad you are one of the good guys! Best, Rebecca Job: Resume & Personal Statement (Dental School Candidacy)

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I need to see the document before solidifying price. It is unprofessional to put forth a price without knowing the scope. Once finalized, my price is all inclusive...as many drafts as necessary to get you where you want to go. : )

  • 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.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
