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.

Rita did a great job, she actually took the time to write a really good resume and cover letter for me. She really does care about your needs. It's nice to talk to an actual person and not go through those generic online resume writers. She makes sure you are pleased with the end results. I would definitely recommend her!

Lisa is an extraordinary career coach and resume writer. Due to a career change, I needed assistance re-writing and re-focusing my resume. Lisa was extremely helpful; she asked well-thought out questions which helped me to clarify where I wanted to go and what I wanted to highlight as part of my resume. She truly helped me to re-brand myself. Lisa is highly professional, personable and easy to work and communicate with. She took all my input and produced a wonderfully written and designed resume that will help me embark on my new career path. Her turn-around time was amazing, too. Within two days of contacting her, I had a brand-new resume in hand! I highly recommend Lisa's services to anyone who is in need of a career coach!!

Jill was very responsive in all my questions. She did amazing job without any mistakes. I would recommend her to anyone needing resume services. I have already had companies contact me for next steps in the hiring process. My last job search I did not have a professional resume writer help me and it took months to find a new job. Jill’s work has lead me to many opportunities that I would not of had due to not having the right resume.

I have had the privilege and honor of working with Sharon and I wish to share my experience so those out there, seeking to find that special person find solace and comfort in reading this. Sharon is an extremely attuned individual, who clearly has been a master of her craft for many years. She will listen to you, while collecting a sketch of who you are, what you have done and where you wish to go as a professional. She, as a paintbrush does with colors, will formulate in the most concise, relevant and articulate way, who you are and all that you have done and wish to, assembled beautifully and formatted with all that you have asked for in writing. She is expert with many platforms, is determined, authentic and committed to a client she works with, and I could not have asked for someone better in all areas! Her main goal/focus is to get you where you need to be - regardless of how close or far one is to the goal. It is difficult enough to self-market, even for those who are good with this, but she will always find a way to make the narrative interesting and memorable in the way she places her wording and chooses her statements about the person she works with. In addition, she her sensibilities and ability to really listen to the person makes for a more valuable journey, since she has a natural way of being an introspective listener while allowing the person to self-reflect. This allows for one to be honest with one's professional quest. I chose Sharon among many that are listed for professional writers/job seekers etc. Sharon works at all levels of the corporate hierarchy so her knowledge base, expertise and approach are all integrated behind successful yield and results! She has this personal touch in the way she works with you, and you at all times feel she gets to know you, versus it being just another client. She takes great pride in her work, will research everything there is to know and is diligent within her time frames and deadlines she sets for herself. I could not have been happier working with Sharon. She is a rare gem and I would highly recommend her to anyone who seeks professional advice/guidance and coaching. She is in addition, an extremely gifted writer. Thank you so much Sharon for your time, wisdom and incredible skills!

I was referred to Kaitlin from a coworker who spoke very highly of her and the resume writing and editing services she provided. He received a promotion earlier in the year after working with Kaitlin on his resume and job application materials. I was in the process of applying for a promotion at work and felt my resume, cover letter, and supplemental questions needed some improvements. I contacted Kaitlin and she responded immediately. I had less than a week to meet the deadline to submit my application materials and Kaitlin was available to meet with me several times. I was so appreciative that she could find the time to work with me on such short notice. It was very easy to communicate with her via phone, Skype, and email while we worked on the editing process remotely. I had a very pleasant experience working with Kaitlin. She is very professional, easy to work with, has great writing and editing skills, and will provide you with wonderful guidance throughout the entire process. Kaitlin also provided me with the confidence to do well in the interview process. After reviewing past job experiences in detail and working on a few writing assignments Kaitlin assigned, I was able to identify what I should highlight during my interviews. I walked out of both interviews feeling very confident in myself. After going through the interview process I received great news that I received the promotion! There is no doubt in my mind that a big part of being promoted was due to Kaitlin’s help! I couldn’t have done it without her. I highly recommend Kaitlin’s writing and editorial consulting services to anyone looking for help with their resume and job application materials.

On a Sunday morning I put out a request to have a resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn update done and I needed it done quick. I received a quick response and before bed, I had all 3 done and they look great. The amount of confidence I now have with your work is though the roof! I appreciate everything and will certainly refer you to any friends/family in need of your services.

My savior in the world of resume writing and career marketing! I've been CEO and co-founder of a successful e-commerce business and run my own consultancy for the last ten years. As such, it's been a loooong time since I've written a resume or needed one. I am now making a career pivot and am applying for positions abroad. I was in overwhelm, with the classic entrepreneur's rant, "unemployed and unemployable, that's why I have my own company." I wasn't impressed with the quality of the numerous resume writers I was finding versus the fees they were charging. My pain point was, how do I find somebody to extract all the varied and valuable skills, initiatives and accomplishments I've had the last ten years of running my own businesses? Luckily, I found Brian. His process is very in-depth, consisting of a two hour onboarding interview, a follow-up revision session, and as many drafts and edits of your resume as needed until I was happy. I also had him re-create my LinkedIn profile. The end product is exactly what I wanted and needed and I'm so glad that I chose him to do the work. His rates are very, very reasonable, quite a bit less than others I'd found, and the quality of the work, extraordinary. Plus he's a world-traveler, author and musician, so the side conversations are great as well. Highest recommendation! Thanks, Brian.

Addy helped me edit my Master's Thesis proposal, a grueling 27 page document for which concision and clarity was key. The requirements of the proposal included many pieces with incredibly short writing constraints (2-3 pages for the literature review for instance). I was really struggling to explain my questions, and thought process, while justifying my methodological approach in such limited spaces. Addy was able to help me slash and burn proposal, synthesizing all of my writing. My proposal is now direct, active and engaging in a way that I couldn't have made it myself. Along with incredibly generous line editing, Addy offered feedback for the overall structure and voice, and helped make my proposal academic and grounded in lived experience. I was interested in opening my long proposal with a one paragraph anecdote and unsure as to whether this approach was working in the way I wanted it to. Addy assured me (after some adjusting) that this was a way to "show rather than tell" the reader how the artwork I am exploring is emotionally engaging. This moment in our editing process showed that she had a comprehensive understanding of voice, readership, and my goals as a writer. She helped me stay calibrated and maintain my own writing voice while always considering the requirements of the text. I intend to return to Addy throughout my Master's Thesis project for the rest of the year.

I have been working with several editors on different writing projects. Meghan is my best editor so far out of all of them. When she does my work, she knows exactly what she is talking about. She pays attention to details. She is not greedy for money. She is fast in meeting deadlines. I am still working with her and recommend her for any of your writing projects.
