I reached out to thumbtack to find professionals who were really good at writing resumes and I had several writers (including Karen) who responded. I narrowed it down to 2 (which included Karen) and immediately contacted both. I wasn't able to reach both parties so I left a message on both voicemails. Within 10 minutes Karen returned my call and I told her what I wanted done. After listening to her speak for a few minutes I told her she was hired. I was very impressed about how well she listened and her description of how she would create a resume that I would be pleased with. Well, to make a long story short, Karen produced an EXCELLENT resume and cover letter! I was very happy with her work. She is very professional and really meets the deadline that was agreed on. If I could give her overall performance 10 stars I certainly would. I am also looking forward to having her set up my LINKEDIN account. If you're looking for a resume writer look no further because you will not regret going forward with Spring Forward. Career Services & Business Documents. I have absolutely no complaints!! Great Job Karen!

David has exceeded my expectations. I had two unprofessional experiences and was skeptical searching for a resume writer online. He is so nice, professional, prompt, and very knowledgeable.

As a writer, editor, and coach, Lauren is a thorough professional -- objective, knowledgeable, and experienced. She understands what a draft is trying to do and has suggestions that not only clarify but also deepen a work in progress. I trust her insight completely. I would not have published my work without her wise assistance and encouragement.

Teresa is an efficient and accurate writer and editor. She has done several projects for me, and they've all been done in a timely fashion. Her writing style is unique but not a distraction. As an editor, she's helped me hone my own voice. I highly recommend her.

Sherry Thompson helped considerably with my application process to law school. With her expertise in the graduate school application process, she was able to help me craft an individualized timeline, and gave excellent feedback on my application materials. I was lucky to find an outstanding consulting group in Forward Motion 411, and highly recommend it to others who are looking for help with post-secondary educational admissions consulting.

    Suzanne has done excellent writing for me as the Worship Arts Director at Valley Brook Community Church. She is a writer that brings characters to life in ways that are fresh and relevant without loosing the integrity of the message. She has taken passages of scripture and brought them to life on the stage. She has written original scenes to illustrate Biblical events such as Advent and Easter. Suzanne can write with passion, humor and intelligence to get her points across. I always enjoy her creative approach with storytelling. She is also delightful as a person which makes the writing experience that much better! I highly recommend Suzanne Griffin as a writer.

    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.
