Willing to work with me, on my busy schedule. She understands that I hired her b/c Resume writing is NOT my forte, I felt the experience to be quick, comfortable, and informative. Typically resume writing makes me self conscious...this definitely was not the case.
5 stars is an understatement for Di and if you are considering a resume writer I am here to tell you, there is no one better. What sets her apart from the entire resume writing industry is how much she cares about her clients. In a factory line industry that is resume writing, the personal attention, and passion Di has for her clients is generally only reserved for those who can afford it. She is an ambitious and talented woman who will not quit until you have the best resume of your career. You will feel like her only client and be amazed at her level of commitment to understand your needs in a resume. Forget templates and cookie cutter bullet points she will create something special for you. I wholeheartedly endorse her work and her service!
Victoria helped me find my voice as a professional and as a writer. She assisted on my resume, cover letters, LinkedIn, Northwestern University Graduate application essays and we do lots of practice for interviews which is extremely useful for my school and career.
I think all I can say is WOW!!! And THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I GOT THE JOB! Thank you so much. Notch polished up my resume, and wrote me an excellent cover letter that got the recruiter's attention. Thank you so much.
I've used Nekia for my term papers in college and also for writing my resume. I was having trouble getting callbacks for different employment opportunities but once Nekia looked over my resume and corrected what needed to be fixed, I was getting offers from everywhere. She's quick and efficient and kind so that was a definite plus.
Without Mr.Katz's help this semester, I honestly would've been so lost applying to summer programs. He helped me out together my resume even down to grammar and capitalization errors and even wrote a couple of letters of recommendation for me. He was really motivational and believed that I could do anything I set my mind to. Overall, really great person to go to for help.
Cynthia provided outstanding services in my editing needs. She was the consummate professional, able to listen carefully and thoughtfully to glean the message I wanted to convey. She was able to take the information I provided to organize it in the most logical and appealing manner while maintaining my perspective throughout. She was competent and timely in her work. You will be very pleased if you hire Cynthia for your writing/editing/resume work.
Dear Customers Looking To Update or Create Your Resume, I recently had the task of updating my resume for a work-related project. As I started to think about how and where I would start this project, I came to realization that the last time I had worked on my resume was 25 years ago. And in that time, I had worked in various positions, held various titles, and had accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience. As you can imagine, feeling overwhelmed in tackling the task of updating my resume was a fair understatement. As I searched the internet in looking for help with my project of updating my resume, I found well-known and reputable companies that offered excellent resume service, but also charged a high rate! And then, I discovered the company, Fix My Resume. During my initial contact with company staff (Ms. Lynette & Ms. DarSha), I was treated with respect, had all my questions answered, and was greatly impressed with the values that Fix My Resume held in providing a service to me: 1. Fix My Resume provides each customer with excellent one to one service: I spent at least one-hour on the phone (and shared my work history, personal and professional goals, etc.) with a designated company staff (and assigned to help me with me resume from start to finish), and completed a personal questionnaire (in addition to the phone conversation) in support of ‘capturing’ the professional that I was and am on paper. 2. Fix My Resume works in collaboration with each customer through the entire process: Fix My Resume welcomed and encouraged my collaborative efforts during the process of updating my resume by utilizing 25 years of evaluations I had gathered, projects I had worked on, trainings I had attended and facilitated, and even a family picture (so they could place a face to the name of the person they were serving!). 3. Fix My Resume provides a timely service to each customer: During the process, Fix My Resume provided open communication by responding to calls, emails, and other inquiries in a TIMELY manner---they even answered one of my calls after-hours. Within 72-hours, I received a Word-document version & PDF-document version of my cover letter and resume, and had the opportunity to work with my designated staff to make any necessary adjustments (and I didn’t have to because of personal service provided to me from the beginning!) I must say that my experience with Fix My Resume was simply wonderful! Not only did Fix My Resume capture my professional work history in a concise and eloquently written manner, but their ability to capture and speak to the person I am in my cover letter was priceless! And speaking of price, their rate was very affordable in comparison to other companies! Best Of Luck To You, M. Santos
I had not needed to conduct a job search since 1978. Suddenly, without warning, I found myself laid off at 57 years old. I always maintained a current resume, but it was a hodgepodge of changes from over the years and formatted chronologically, definitely not appropriate to the times and my needs. Before I had a chance to fix the resume, I became aware of a large job fair on the following Monday. My problem was that it was Friday. Not being confident of my skills, I stumbled around looking for a local resume writer who might be willing to fix my resume by Sunday. Well, the Gods were with me. I found Laura Miranda. She, as advertised, delivered a fast and affordable resume. What Laura's ad doesn't mention is that she communicates with her clients very effectively to insure that she has all relevant information for the resume. And in the end, she delivers an exceptional product at an insanely fair price. Thank God for wonderful people like Laura Miranda!
Steve was great to work with and did an excellent job in putting my resume and cover letter together. I received calls for interviews right away. I would definitely recommend Steve.
I am so happy I was referred to Faith by a friend. She not only was able to rewrite my resume in a way that made me more marketable to companies but she also offered great advice on wording I should use when I am interviewing. She was very professional and was always available when I had questions. Thank you again Faith for your Professional drive and manner. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help with resumes and other writing projects. C Johnson
I have worked with Laina as a client in search of professional, expert advice on making important career decisions and launching an effective job search. Laina is an excellent listener with a great deal of empathy, who went below the surface and spent considerable amount of time to understand, clarify and fully comprehend my strengths, skill-set and professional experience, in order to deliver a very customized, unique and focused resume content which was highly authentic and accurate. Laina is positive and encouraging in her approach with her clients and at the same time resourceful with many fresh ideas and job-search strategies that are practical and relevant. She is generous with her time and she demonstrates a sincere interest in helping her clients achieve their goals. I enjoyed working with Laina and I believe I received a high quality range of services, including career advice, resume and Linkedin consultation coupled with specific job search strategies that were tailored to my individual needs and challenges. Laina collaborated with me, discussed in detail her views and advice and was flexible to incorporate my suggestions, requirements and specific needs so the final output will be as effective as possible. I recommend Laina as a Career Consultant and Resume / LI writer-consultant to all who are in job search. They will receive valuable service by a caring professional.
Jane Lump helped me prepare a resume when an on-line magazine for which I worked ceased publication. I had worked for a company for more than two decades and had not had to update my resume for many years, so I needed help. She was extraordinarily professional and not only advised me on the structure and content of the resume, she also did the layout for me. I am grateful to Jane for her advice and am sure that the content and professional appearance of the resume she created helped me land my current position in publishing. .
Becky is a passionate and creative writer. She has the ability to craft your message in an appealing and sophisticated fashion. But equally important, she will help to take your idea from your brain to paper more articulately than you even intended. Her targeted questions that she will ask you in helping to extract your goal is the real payoff. Worth every last penny!
i worked for elaine when she was editor of the chicago tribune's home & garden section. i loved working for her because she always trusted her writers' vision, and let us soar where we believed we might find an updraft. she is one of the hardest workers i know. and recently she produced a spoken word concert, where again she showed her limitless capacity for imagination, for bringing together artists, and for attending to every detail. she is fabulous.
