I hired Rebecca to revamp my resume and create a cover letter. She was phenomenal! Her mastery of outcome-oriented language is impressive. Then, she wrote a job evaluation paragraph for me, free of charge. Rebecca is a true professional. I am thrilled with her work. If you are looking for a resume and cover letter editor / writer, you need not look any further. Rebecca truly is the best!

Charles Koppelman knows how to use the art and language of film to tell a compelling story, and brings his intelligence and creativity to everything he does. He tailors his approach to the topic at hand and the audience, knows how to select and get the best out of actors and interview subjects, and assembles a crack team of highly professional editors, camera people, sound technicians and the like to produce a beautiful package. He brings a Hollywood sensibility to his corporate projects, and also has mastered the documentary medium. He offers a full-service firm whose expertise extends beyond film to include graphic design, marketing and more.

I appreciate his attention to detail. He is informative and offers insight as to why he is making certain edits to aid in my growth and development as a writer. He provides constructive criticism when necessary while preserving my autonomy. He has been a valuable asset to my research writing. Noteworthy: Julian is not trained in scientific writing and has provided me with the most meaningful edits when compared to those who are trained in the field. The sign of a truly extraordinary editor. Highly recommend.

Working with Jim was a blessing and a delight. He took my rather dense wording on a new page I had written for my business website and very quickly whittled it down to its essence in a way that would have readers wanting to learn more. He is impeccable with his word—he does what he says he's going to do on time and within the agreed-upon budget. And he’s an incredible editor. I loved almost every one of his suggested edits and incorporated them throughout my site. I've used him twice now as my business grows and I want to continually make my website as inviting as possible. I believe one of the reasons my business has grown to be so successful over the last two years has to do with the way Jim helped me frame my coaching services to let people know what I do while encouraging them to contact me for more information. Thank you, Jim, for your responsiveness, your intuitive and extremely helpful insights into what can be lost in words but gained in persuasive strength, and your kindness as a collaborator. I look forward to working with you again soon." - Anastasia Frank, Relationship Coach, owner of www.AnastasiaFrank.com

      Jacquie is great. Having her available during my job search made the process so much less stressful. She helped edit my resume, condense and streamline my cover letter, connected me to people she knew in the industry, wrote referral letters and gathered useful feedback regarding my applications. She has a ton of insight and wisdom on how to beef up your resume, how to interpret interview feedback and how to stay grounded & motivated throughout your search. Working with her felt like having a cheerleader, editor, mentor and agent rolled into one awesome package, and I would absolutely recommend that anyone looking to switch jobs, enter the workforce or change careers utilize her services.

      Erik and I worked together on a commercial for my old employer, Asian Food Grocer. He and I planned the commercial from the beginning- writing, staging shots, recruiting actors. At every step he was professional, resourceful, and exceptionally creative. The filming of the commercial went smoothly, and what really blew me away were his skills as an editor. And even though it was my project that I came to him with, he put in more hours than I did, and worked far beyond what I ever expected or asked for. I am incredibly happy with his work, and I hope his future projects only get bigger and better

      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.
