I've got to say that I was somewhat hesitant to invest money into the service. With a background in human resources, I've been writing resume's for years, including my own, and wasn't sure if I'd receive anything that was better than what I could do. However, boy was I wrong!! Miranda and her team did an AMAZING job on my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn page. I don't have enough great things to say about the professionalism and accuracy of the end-product. What truly caught me by surprise was how they were able to "capture the essence" of my career and various skills. I definitely am very please with their work and I would HIGHLY recommend them for this service. You're 5 Stars in my book and I will definitely be a return customer. Thank you, again, Phil

Ellen was a pleasure to work with, every step of the way. She took time to research the positions and schools listed on my resume and developed a show stopping resume. Highly responsive, Ellen is a true professional with a talent for resume writing. When the final draft arrived, I was amazed at how she illuminated my skills and experience. My goal was to take a huge career leap and Ellen’s resume landed me several interviews that resulted in multiple job offers. Eventually, I accepted an executive level position that is several levels above my previous position. Fast, friendly, and work every penny. Do yourself a favor, invest this money in your future and let Ellen make you shine!

Sandy has done a terrific job. She is an excellent writer, but, more than that, she takes the time to figure out exactly what your goals are, and then tailors her writing to be in line with those goals. She is also prompt, dependable, and charges extremely reasonable fees. I highly recommend Sandy for your writing needs!

Our first meeting was great. He is a conscientious tutor. He prepared some practices for me to learn about my skills such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing. And then he will customize a plan for me, according to my performance in our first meeting.

I had the pleasure of working with Anna for 3 years during her time as Marketing / SM Director for our company. Her writing and creativity abilities are extremely unique and always drove unexpected results for all the clients under her wing. Remember that Oregon Trail Generation article that went viral and got over a million shares? Yeah... that was her!!! Don't miss out!

Kyra is an incredible asset in many ways. First and foremost, Kyra knows Chicago. She grew up in Chicago, she went to college in Chicago, and her connections are in Chicago. Kyra knows about so many different schools, companies, and organizations, and she can generally find someone to share their experience firsthand with you. Kyra has helped me apply for jobs from the ground up. She found specific empirical data that supports my skill set and helped me format it into a clean and readable resume. She helped me clearly discover not only my marketable skills, but also my passions. Kyra is also incredibly warm, compassionate, and responsive. She made my goals her goals and made me feel cared for through my entire hob application process. After helping me, she connected a friend of mine to the director of a non-profit. That friend was given a job with that organization about two weeks later. Kyra is amazing.

    I have hired Vanessa Rico for two separate projects in the past month, and both she executed flawlessly. The first project she helped me with transcription and the second project she did some online prospecting work for me--identifying prospects for outreach for my small business. Her writing skills, her people skills, her attention to detail, and her ability to meet deadlines are superb. I look forward to hiring Vanessa for more freelance work in the future!

      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.
