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!

It's my first experience on thumbtack, my first time working with a life coach and I hit a goldmine! I’ve had several appointments with Deb and I must say I am pleased to have made this connection. As a quick background to understand how and why I’m rating my review. I came to look for a life coach to open my horizons, and to push forward towards some of my major goals in life, one of which being my occupation. I must say at this point I feel comfortable to say that it was the perfect match for me to have Deb as my life coach. Over the course of two months I been involved in business conventions, built new contacts, reached out to old friends, have worked on my image and of course my future aspirations. I look forward to the possibilities that await me and it’s thanks to my hard work, focus and of course what Deb has brought to the table. Deb is one that brings positive energy, excitement, structure, fun and professionalism. She also has special traits, one of which is that she creates appointment recaps and puts it into writing for you to read, visualize and come back to any time you want! Overall, it’s your choice what you are looking for, but my recommendation is to at least give her a try. I myself am looking forward to our future meets and possibilities. Signing out. -P

David was a fantastic support with the opening chapter of my first novel. He provided excellent insights into my writing habits, great suggestions and ultimately focussed on where I could strengthen my story to keep the reader engaged. His editing was very valuable, and he responded almost immediately. I would work with him again and happily recommend others consider him also.

I needed to update my resume and PMCE worked some magic! From 6 pages to 2, while retaining the critical information and adding recent skills. Easy to work with and great communications. Cheerfully answered my questions, and made me feel comfortable.

After having Matt write my resume, I waited to see the results before writing this review. Now that I've received 2 job offers within just 2 months of applying, I can confidently say that Matt is great at what he does. We butted heads a couple of times at first, but that's just because I didn't trust him right away. Trust him. He knows what he's doing and will serve you well. Thanks Matt!

We had a good experience with David. He was on time and set up quickly. Prior to the wedding we had a lengthy meeting to discuss the kind of pictures we would like. The pictures were on line in three days. The pictures were good and David did a good job capturing our special moment.

Sam was an integral part of my law school application process. He worked with me to write a fantastic Personal Statement and several Letters of Interest. His critiques were insightful and spot-on, his turnaround time was fast, and his professionalism was unmatched. I highly recommend Sam and RSSR Editing for any editing/drafting/writing needs - especially for help with graduate school admissions. Thank you Sam!

As the CEO of Wireless Analytics and Sheila’s manager for 16 months, I feel that I know Sheila pretty well. Sheila was thrust into a position of ambiguity, and asked to juggle the role of three separate positions during an organizational transition: 1) Human Resource Manager; 2) Office Manager; 3) my executive assistant. In all respects, she approached the challenge with rigor and professionalism. She is reliable, trustworthy, empathetic and approaches her work and life with both humor and enthusiasm. In her position as Human Resource Manager, Sheila was responsible for front-line support to our 45+ employees. Because we never had a person in this role in the past, Sheila was asked to create new processes and procedures for the first time. Her excellent written communication skills made writing new operating procedures seem easy, and her verbal communication skills and people skills made our employees feel well supported. In her position as Office Manager, Sheila was responsible for supporting the office environment, managing inventory, ordering office supplies, interfacing with building management and a vast array of discrete projects. She juggled these tasks with competence and commitment. In her position of executive assistant, Sheila was one of the most patient and supportive employees that I have had the pleasure of working with. I am not an easy person to work with daily, and Sheila always arrived with a smile and rarely was flustered or frustrated (or at least she didn’t show it – which is the test of a true professional). Sheila takes the initiative to identify problems and devise solutions. She has shown that she is an intelligent person with a mind well-suited to the world of business. The financial decision to outsource human resource management to an outside company, and the hiring of a controller resulted in the elimination of Sheila’s position. Sheila has informed me that she intends to pursue a career more closely related to her field of expertise: publishing, copy editing and intellectual property rights. Based on her excellent writing ability, her editing skills, her ability to work with anyone, she clearly has the interest and ability to excel in this field. I therefore highly recommend her.

I could not have found a better person to help me with my resume than WriteResume. She was extremely knowledgable, professional, helpful, and kind. I was at a roadblock when it came to writing my own resume but after meeting with WriteResume, I have a resume that I am extremely proud of and excited to turn into future job opportunities. WriteResume goes above and beyond to help you organize your skills, qualities, and past experiences onto a professional resume. I would recommend her to anyone.

About

My work stands out from others work because I not only support and help the people I teach, but I learn from them as well expanding my knowledge in the English area, but in the teaching area as well. I am very passionate about writing and will help you accomplish anything in the English area you put your mind to. Sometimes, if it helps, you can dictate what you are thinking about a topic and I will write down your thoughts to get you started.
