Introduction: Still Open during the Covid-19 Crisis. Call for details I think what makes my service unique is that I'm out here in the real world, just like most of you are. I know what employers are looking for because I work a regular job, just like you do. I enjoy that I am able to help people who are often in a bad place (either recently unemployed or in a job they find unsatisfying) and helping them navigate the maze of job hunting.

Joe did a great job helping me create my new resume. Under less than ideal circumstances on a zoom call (my phone was not cooperating), he was able to make tweaks I requested in a minimal amount of time. Great value. Thank you Joe.

Joe gets it! He’s thoughtful and informed about what employers are looking for. As a result, he was able to craft a top notch resume and cover to reflect that. I highly recommend Joe for all your resume related needs.

I needed to make adjustments to my resume. I reached out on Thumbtack. Joe responded to my request quickly. Joe did not do my original resume so I wasn't sure what to expect. I found Joe very easy to work with and he had several suggestions he felt would help on my resume. I emailed him my thoughts and was able to meet with him face to face, which is what I prefer, the very next day to go over the new resume. We walked through the new resume he had done, made a couple of minor changes, primarily which Joe suggested and it was ready to go in about 24 hours. Joe also helped with a generic cover letter that is easy to use and personalize for each application I send. The new cover letter is extremely helpful. I am really happy with the work Joe did for me. I sent out my new resume to a recruiter I had been speaking with and she thought it was much better than my original resume. She said she would submit the new resume to a potential employer. She didn't feel my original resume would get me contacted. I would highly recommend Joe for your resume and cover letter.

Was very clear and to the point on helping me to develop a resume that I have never had done before. Being a veteran himself helped in translating my own military career into a professional resume.

FAQs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I have been writing resumes for my friends for years, but I went into the business after assisting a friend with a particularly tough resume. After that, I realized that helping people understand how a resume is read is just as important as knowing what to put in it.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?
