Switching career industries is never an easy task and getting your foot in the door is among the hardest things to accomplish. So reaching out to Constance was a no brainer when I began my search. After consulting with her regarding my ideal position, experience and education, she aptly began restructuring my resume and editing my cover letters. She delved into areas I considered menial and explained their value and why I should highlight these areas on my resume. Once my resume was complete, she then expanded my job search, careers I initially did not consider, were now exciting and attainable opportunities. After applying to positions selected from my curated job list, I was invited to interview with great prospective organizations. Although I did not switch industries (due to an amazing promotion with my current company) I have and will continue to recommend C4 services to anyone in need of career advice.

    I still haven't published my book (darn economics!), but I was very pleased with Glenn's efforts on editing a romance-adventure (42k words) I felt was worth paying someone to get really right before submitting. He gave solid reasons for anything he felt could be left out, and when he suggested moving parts around, it made obvious sense. I hadn't introduced the bad guy until chapter 11 or 12 (other stuff seemed more important), he moved to Ch. 6 because "even if you don't use him all the time or until much later, people need to know he exists, why, and what impact might/will have (vs. just popping in near end).

      Lauren did a really great job producing website copy for my SAAS startup. Not only was she able to guide me through the creative process, but she also helped structure some of my ideas on the subject. Ultimately she produced some great copy, which has been very well received by our customers.

      I've known Andrew for a good three years. I think in the professional line-up he is the most experienced filmmaker that I have ever worked with and has helped me on more than once when I was struggling on a project, giving off the best critique and knowledge on film and editing...who works hard enough he doesn't get the accreditation he deserves. Experienced in film, writing, and video Andrew is by far the most professional person that I have met.

      Everyone has their own writing style, but is your style going to engage the audience you're trying to reach? Is your style going to get your point across with clarity while maintaining the interest of the reader? Oftentimes, a few changes of words, paragraph structure, or new ideas will get you the results you seek. Why not spend a few dollars to make your document shine brighter than the rest? Are you someone who knows what you want to say, but a little unsure how to convey your message in words? If so, let me be your thought translator. I'd enjoy writing anything from an e-mail, letter, resume, cover letter, offer, resignation letter, letter of recommendation, letter of complaint - whatever the subject or need, I'm here to assist!

      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.
