    Joe condensed my monstrosity of a resume to one page, something I didn't think was possible. I wanted an emphasis on Project Management from my current role and Joe was able to make that happen. Project management and prices improvement really stand out now and I feel much better about the search for my next career move.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Dr. April Michaud Editing

(54 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love helping people look amazing on paper. They have the experience, the passion, and the expertise to do their jobs, but sometimes they need help putting it into words– that's where I come in! I get to help people find their next big break or the career opportunity they have been searching for. It is very rewarding to know that I have the ability to help people achieve their professional dreams. What's even better, is when I hear back from past clients who can't wait to share their new-found success with me!

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to begin this business when I was interviewing people, and their resumes were poor reflections of what they were capable of doing. I saw a need for people to understand resume writing and the impact it can have on their future. I decided to use my writing and presentation strengths to help others showcase themselves. I want every person to have the opportunity to have the job they were meant for. I do not believe a resume should stand in their way, so here I am, trying to make a difference for people seeking their dream job.

    Lee G.

    Though I was apprehensive at first, my experience with Rebecca was nothing short of outstanding. She was always extremely prompt when it came to responding to emails. She was very helpful with insights into the HR mindset, interview suggestions, and much, much more. The overall timeliness was excellent - she told me she could start on a specific date, and had a draft to me the following day. She consulted with me to make sure it was a good representation and discuss specifics, and the relevant phone call was on time and very informative. I feel that she got a good sense of my strengths and weaknesses and translated that well into the resume. Obviously (given the positive tone of this review), the resume she wrote seems excellent and was everything I was looking for. In the spirit of full disclosure, at the time of this review I have yet to get an opportunity to use it, but I have confidence that it is the best representation of what I can bring to the table that I have had. I've purchased the services of two other professionals for resume writing / revision, and though one of them did improved my resume, Rebecca's work is by far the best out of the three and also the most tailored to the sort of jobs I am interested in. I can't personally vouch for her skills other than resume writing(that's what the other reviews are for), but I would definitely recommend her to any friend needing editing services.

    I gave Katie the task of redoing a very old and poorly done resume and CL. She advised that it would typically take 3 to 4 days to complete. From the first communication with Katie I knew that I wanted her to do my resume. From the first communication with Katie I knew that I wanted her to do my resume she came across as someone who would be Ernest and passionate about what she was doing, knowledgeable and compelling. True to her word of 3 or 4 days and in spite of a holiday weekend and my throwing a curve in the middle of this process she still finished my resume on time. And the results of my new resume and CL are far beyond my expectations, a job well done Katie! Everything was so quick and so easy and Katie followed instructions to the tee. Thank you so much Katie!

Thank you again !!could I know I could offer a company but could never get past b on the experience I am able to offer a company. After a brief phone call with my consultant Matt, he took my puny, outdated resume and made it look like that of an executive while still maintaining my core competencies.

    I sent April my resume and just requested feedback but she went above and beyond and completed the resume. It was great on first attempt. I only had a tweak of resume needed which was to reflect a tad more skill set I was seeking as I moved forward with my career. Turn around time... less than 24 hours! Completely satisfied. She also included a cover letter and helped with LinkedIn. Rate may be more but so well worth it. If you pay less you probably won't get as much service and you wont get additional material to use unless you pay a la carte for those services. Would absolutely use her again. By the way, I am a Human Resource Manager so I see resumes all the time and she is among the best of the best.

    A well educated word smith. I was not very well prepared for Keith and basically sketched out a bunch of loose notes, took a picture of the notes with my phone and sent it to his phone. The next day i had a pretty nice rough draft of my resume. Needless to say I was impressed. We tweeked the draft, and now I have an extremely professional resume that I am confident will help my chances of good employment.

    Exceptional value. After viewing Karen's profile, I went with Spring Forward Job Seeker Services with the mindset that her company was attuned to present day content relevant to HR key word usage, including the ever important social media aspect. Signing on for a resume/cover letter/LinkedIn profile evaluation with recommendations, I was not disappointed. With all three initiatives she delivered quality work, meeting/exceeding my expectations. Though it took a little longer than anticipated to complete the job, Karen was punctual with updates regarding progress and timeframes. Without question a professional, conscientious and capable operation.

    Anastasia N.

    Working with Joe was a positive experience. I had a more challenging resume, in that I have a varied background and looking to slightly shift out of my current field into another one. He took the time to work through my current resume with me, giving editorial comments, recommendations based upon his background and those he knows in HR offices and listened to everything I had to say. I like to have a hand in everything I do and it definitely felt more like a colaborative process rather than having him do it all for me. We took almost 2 hours of one-on-one after several introductory emails and I appreciated the time spent. I would recommend him to others looking for that same kind of experience.

    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!

    Mr. Bills was very through and efficient. He called me right after I accepted his proposal to set up a phone interview. When we had a phone interview, he asked me specific questions about what position I was looking for and he found out my strengths. When I got the draft, I was beyond impressed! I sounded amazing on paper! I had no revisions on the draft so he sent me my final asap. I am now very confident that I will land and interview and a new career soon. This is the first time I have gotten a professional to write my resume, but I knew if I wanted to stand out then I would need to invest in my future! I recommend Mr. Bills to anyone who is looking to be a step above of their competition!
