My daughter, who had already scored a 1980 on the SAT, improved her reading and writing point total by 110 after just two hours of focused SAT strategy consulting with Kathy. She very efficiently and effectively communicated how preparing for this test is much more about approach than content. Even when content has been mastered by many good high school students, it is the lack of a good approach can throw them off their game on test day. I can also attest to her keen acumen across business disciplines, particularly financial analysis and writing. The work Kathy did no doubt helped keep her clear-headed and confident when taking the subject tests. Thank you, Kathy. You made what could have been stressful for my daughter "just having a few good talks with Kathy." Karen

I'm not very good at writing my own resume. I needed help with my resume fast. Melinda got a draft to me in less than 24 hours! She then sent a great cover letter the very next day! Both looked great! She spent a good hour on the phone with me asking lots of great questions. She really tailored it just for me. She definitely isn't like the large resume writing services where they just churn out resumes based on very little information. If you want a great resume, and you need it quickly, Melinda is the person for you!

Working with Adrienne of Leviosa Communication has been an absolute pleasure. She paid attention to my needs from the project and delivered beautifully written copy. She was way to collaborate with and was quick to respond with edits and revisions. Her punctuality and responsiveness, along with her talent for writing, were what I appreciated the most about her. I would highly recommend working with Leviosa Communication for any project that needs well-written and creative copy.

It was a pleasure working with Laurie throughout the college application process. Laurie provided my daughter with much-needed guidance in navigating the application process and valuable advice in terms of college selection decisions and how to approach essay writing. My daughter also benefited greatly from her feedback in writing her college application essays. Laurie was always responsive to our questions and punctual in returning my daughter's essays with helpful comments. Her guidance is much appreciated.

    About

    A professionally written resume and executive plan is perhaps the most important factor in your search for employment. A tailor-made resume and cover letter have proven to be a highly powerful and extremely successful tool. An unprofessional document lacks appeal and will dramatically undersell your credentials. I have extensive experience in designing successful resumes for clients, including recent college graduates and first-time job hunters, mid-career professionals seeking a step-up, career changers, self-employed entrepreneur, and upper-management executives across all industry segments. You never get a second chance to make a first impression, and to employers, your resume is the first impression, and for venture capital, it's your executive summary. Your document must tell a compelling story about your career progression, highlight your accomplishments, focus on your strengths, and reflect your personal brand. If it doesn't do all these things, you won't get a second chance. If you feel like you're not creating the right first impression, I can help.

    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.
