Resume Writing

I have never been so impressed as I was at the end of my rope as I kept losing job after job because of a very subpar resume that I had wrote. I needed a change I needed a fighting chance in the job market. I came to her and with a very reasonable rate and a great phone interview then a series of questions I now have resume that is so professional and excellent I feel that I am going to be having my phone ringing off the hook. If you want a fantastic resume a professional resume a resume that is going to get you noticed then she is the one to go with.

Can't say enough about how well Emily did. She was the second person I hired in as many months and gave me a better quality resume at a better price. She understood the importance of the marketing and design aspects of a resume better than many and I instantly noticed an increase in response from the resume she wrote for me. I have recommended her to everyone I know that is job hunting.

Thumbtack has you choose only 3 out of 5 positive adjectives to describe your experience with a professional; however, Emily's "responsiveness" & "punctuality" are EASILY equally efficient as the other 3 (work quality, professionalism, value). I had ran into some trouble with the last digital/writing media specialist working for my business beforehand, & I've only been working with Emily no more than a month & she has already surpassed any expectations I had been looking for once I finally decided to part paths with the previous agency I had hired. If you are anything like me as a business owner, you value hard work, integrity, & overall good people working for you as opposed to strictly sales techniques. While Emily can do that (marketing strategies that is) & then some, what makes her stand out to me & why I am so grateful to both have found her as well as continue working with her, is who she is as a person. Understanding is an understatement, & YES, she is indeed a fierce woman of her word. We need people like that working for us when our livelihoods mean the world to you like it does mine. So I can only hope Emily is always treated with the utmost respect (as, in running a service business myself, I know how much kindness like hers can often go unseen), & always rightfully compensated for the time, effort, & energy she so wholeheartedly puts into her work. Thank you, Emily!

Resume Writing

I worked with Em, She was a delight. I was in need of a resume that needed to be updated and be focused on a very particular group. I also needed resume done in the same day. I had received notice to apply late for this job. Em understood the frantic nature of my need I had timeline of 4:00 pm she first received info at 10:30. She was able to write and rewrite numerous drafts and she cared and reworked many times until I was satisfied.I would recommend Em to everyone! She is what makes a difference in people’s lives. She helped with changing mine.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is fairly reasonable for my experience and creative eye.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always want to get to know my client first before getting started. I want to understand who they are as a person, instead of just doing the work. Building that relationship will go a long way in the end.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing along with professional training with resume editing and recruiting.
