I recently graduated with my masters degree in Management and Leadership, and I have embarked on the journey of finding a career in my field. Applying for jobs can be extremely competitive, and I felt the need to reach out for assistance with my resume and cover letter. Mrs. Brenda Pilson took time to answer my questions and give invaluable feedback that took my resume to the next level. I am not typically someone who writes reviews, but Mrs. Pilson went above and beyond. Of course, she helped me with my documents, but she also instilled a sense of confidence and a renewed sense of purpose in me. I loved our consultations because she helped to remind me why I entered my profession. If anything in this review resonates, please reach out to Mrs. Pilson. She takes care of her clients. Thanks Brenda Pilson!

I used Brenda Pilson's services to revamp my resume from 3 pages to 2 pages. From the time I sent Brenda my resume, have her revamp it, proof-read it and discussed the product with her before it was finalized took 2-3 days. I was extremely impressed with Brenda's service. She made sure that all of my work experiences and achievements were highlighted within the 2 pages. There was no time limit as to when I needed the resume completed. The quality of Brenda's work is/was outstanding. I'm a new retiree, and just want to have a functional resume available.

Brenda was wonderful to work with. I feel very confident that I can get the job I want with the cover letter and resume she has written for me. I would definitely ask for her assistance again in the future, if needed.

David Tabatsky is one of those rare individuals in modern day publishing who consistently shines in all three of the industry's most fundamental criteria: writing, editing and administrative skills. He would be an asset to any organization seeking someone whose love of words is matched only by his proficiency at putting them together.

David Tabatsky edited my book which came out in January. He worked with me about a year. He was a joy to work with, not only because of his expertise in editing, but because he is such a kind and compassionate person. He was always willing to go the extra mile. He is a very creative person and comes up with many great ideas.

David was a great help in editing my book! He was able to organize the ideas and get all of the touches done that I, as the author, was in far too deeply to see! He did fantastic job and Crystal Child is now a reality we can both be proud of!

Very impressive editing!!! I worked with Diane for my MBA school application which some of you may know is highly competitive and stressful; with Diane’s professional editing, it has greatly increased my chance to get into my targeted school. I have asked her help on all the docs which my application required, firstly, she will give guidance on your CV and then advice you how to answer essay questions and how you could weave your points in the essay before start, then patiently editing and keep comminuting with you till you’re completed satisfied with final version. I was always excited to see how the essay will turn out after her editing and was never disappointed with any of her editing work. She always restructures the wording in a succinct and very easy to read way meanwhile solidifying the context and strengthening your points without changing your core purport. It was great experience work together with Diane and I would sign up for a writing training with her. Last but not least, she is very efficient and rigidly meets the deadline as you requested. Very professional, a strong message refiner, speak out of my experience, I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an editor on your school applications and academic papers.

From cover letters to grant proposals to doctoral dissertations, Diane's skills and expertise allows her to set the appropriate tone, use the proper terminology and seamlessly synthesize your ideas. Diane Moss has been and continues to be an incredible resource for me as I navigate between different sectors of work and levels of education. Always pleasant to work with and available to offer invaluable advice, Diane is the key to polishing any written work that you are struggling with or adding a special touch of sophistication and style to your final product. I highly recommend Diane's editing and writing skills to take your work to the next level.

I was impressed with Kate from the moment our conversations began. She approached this project with enthusiasm and drive. She completed it timely. She provided content analysis along with proofreading. She even went out of her way to investigate alternate options if something she read required improvement topically. I would definitely recommend her and her work to authors looking to get their book edited.

I used Kerim's services for video transcription and video editing and I can safely say I will be using him for all video-related work in the future. He had an incredible eye for detail and transformed my footage with his sharp editing. He was also very timely in his responses and a great communicator.

I have worked with JJ of AuthorMax for many years on various projects. From my experience, JJ always works closely with clients until the project is how they want it. If he is ghostwriting, he makes sure the client's voice (not his) is clear and distinct. JJ is also meticulous when it comes to editing. He isn't done with a manuscript until the client is happy with it. Equally important, he is easy to work with and personable.

Paul was wonderful to work with when he helped me edit writing for my business and website. He is clearly very bright, and a talented writer, but he is also very patient. He took the time to really understand what I was trying to say, and to clearly communicate his ideas in a way that was productive and positive, while still providing critical feedback that improved the overall quality of my writing, and more clearly delivered my message. I will definitely be seeking Paul out for additional editing work in the future.

I am currently applying to medical school and needed someone to read over the copious amounts of applications I have to submit. I reached out to Richard and am so happy that I decided to hire him.

Their email newsletter service is the best I've seen - I paid less than $75 a month. The SEO work they do is also phenomenal. I have more traffic to my site than previously working with Ineedwebcontent.com. They're a small business and give you their devoted attention. They are a husband, wife team! I worked with Lara, who was my seo web content writer, and her husband Tony built our website. I'm not too crazy about big companies because they tend to cut corners. They were very professional and I appreciated it 100%

About

I like to help bring out what really needs to be said so that people can hear, understand and connect to it. Through my high-level training in philosophy and political theory, I learned to formulate clear and consistent arguments and work with complex abstract ideas, with subtle nuances and sensitive subjects. As a teacher, I learned that truly effective communication requires a great deal of organization and clarity, while also making the material relevant and alive for the "audience".

About

EPD was established over 20 years ago as a recruiting firm in the pharmaceutical and medical device field. It was necessary to submit convincing proposals in an effort to secure job orders or high-level searches. Strong resumes were an absolute part of the process. In addition, I am working on a novel and have extensive experience in public speaking. Writing projects: speechs, proposals, business plans, manuscript editing, resumes, short skits and story lines. Below is an example of my work: IN SEARCH OF POPPA CHAPTER ONE I was born a bastard. At least, that’s what my mother told me the last time the subject came up; in fact, every time the subject came up. At the top of her voice, she screamed, “I ain’t telling you shit! You ain’t got no damn father!” The angry shouts that followed were so loud that it was hard to distinguish between the sudden ringing in my ears or the hammering of my heart against the inside walls of my chest, in a futile attempt to jump out of its cavity. Tatemsville, Georgia is our home...behind the general store that faced the railroad tracks. Jus’ follow the dirt road on the side of the general store and then turn right at the second corner: that‘s us...along with twelve other neighboring two room-look alike- unpainted wooden shacks. Our community is a small tightly knitted village on the outer southwestern edge of Savannah where we revel in a rich, comfortable blues singing poverty with pockets as empty as a banker’s heart…maybe seven or eight pigs. Further east, on the edge of Tatemsville, is the spirited-“Holy-Roller”-church of the richest man in our village: “The Sweet Daddy Grace.” And a couple of steps away from his sanctuary, the branches of a massive Oak and a cluster of Chinaberry trees shade Mr. Leroy’s Snake Pit Tavern and a giant hole in the ground that serves as the community’s barbecue pit. Two old bed springs, covered the top of the community barbecue pit and serve as the cooking counter. And underneath...a buildup of red coals, bits and pieces of Oak logs have already burned down, simmering and glowing in the pit, making a fizzzzzing noise. Smells of cooking rabbits penetrated the air and a reddish well-seasoned sauce soaked their small bones and dripped through the bed springs giving off a char-grill fragrance mingled with a slight hickory odor that escaped in smoke drifting through the narrow holes of the springs. Nearby two hogs hang around patiently, uncomplainingly, stabbed through the heart, split open, gutted and strung up gaping and bloody, waiting for their barbecuing rendezvous.
