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.

Syreeta is Heaven sent, to say the least! Prior to meeting her, I'd paid another individual to complete my resume- and the end result was horrific! I then submitted a request for a resume writer via Thumbtack, and Syreeta responded immediately. Her response was professional, thorough, and to the point. She called me on the same night and provided a detailed explanation of her services, and then asked a series of pertinent questions regarding my career. I immediately felt at ease during our initial conversation. We met the very next day for about an hour, and when I attempted to pay her, she explained that the initial consultation is always free. How awesome is that! I really appreciate the fact that she opted to meet up with me face to face versus sending a questionnaire or form to fill out. I'm a Software Engineer and she let me know that she did not have a strong IT background- but was willing to work with me side by side, until it met my expectation. She literally stayed up all night writing my resume and I really appreciate her efforts and willingness to do this at a moment's notice. Once I received the final draft of my resume the next day, I was blown away. It exceeded my expectation, to say the least. And I forgot to mention that this all took place over the course of 3 days :) I highly recommend Syreeta for any service that her business offers. She delivers on time and does magnificent work.

The project was to find a professional resume writer who could create a resume and cover letter for a retiree with 25+ years of experience to apply for an administrative part-time position. I believe the comments below speak for themselves. First reaction, "WOW”. I really wasn't too optimistic that she would be able to take what I provided her and craft it in such a way to get so much information into 1 page. Of course my expectation was an improvement over what I provided, but she really took it to another level; I was amazed! To have someone who truly understands ... respects my feelings is absolutely priceless. I guess the best way I can say this, is the professionalism, sincerity and genuine commitment to my project is something we all as consumers wish we could experience with any company we do business with! Well done!" Thank you so much for a job “Well done”!

I have been in Real Estate for a long time and it had been a while since I had written a resume, so I felt pretty overwhelmed when I started looking for a new job. Thankfully, Dena was organized, responsive, and asked questions I hadn't even thought of. In just a couple days, I had a professional resume and cover letter than gave me the confidence to apply to jobs I would have just passed up before. Highly recommend!

She got to the point and asked the right questions that were relevant to the job I was applying for and formulated an exceptional resume and cover letter within 24hrs. It was a pleasure working with Dena and I highly recommend her if you need to something quick, reformatted, resume changed to specifically match with job description and/or an eloquently written cover letter.

Neyeah is an amazing writer she puts words together so strategically that it flows seamlessly. It was a great pleasure working with her. Upon working with her on articles for an upcoming project, I learned that she also is great at budgeting which is something I struggled with. She was great at helping me figure out how to save and how much I should or should not spend on certain things . Overall it was a wonderful experience working with her .

It was a great experience having someone like Neyeah helping me write a resume. Before her I couldn't do a resume at all but after the help I got from her I feel confident enough to help others with there resumes. She was great at helping me find my strengths and how to elaborate on how these strengths may benefit the company I was applying for.

Chris is a thorough and friendly proofreader and editor. He is definitely passionate about what he does. We speak frequently on the phone and he is quick to respond to my emails. The other quotes I was given were for a one draft reading, but Chris evaluated my manuscript twice and then taught me how to write a page long summary and a query letter, both of which he read too. His service, skill, and communication are so strong that I’ve asked him to read my three other manuscripts as well. Highly recommend Chris!

Chris Piccone's caring, encouraging and easy-going demeanor really helped my son Hunter develop his expression through writing. We think Mr. Piccone is an asset to the educational system and has the verifiable credentials to take an average student writer to an excellent student writer. Totally worth the money. Thanks Mr. Piccone!

I had hired Happy Resumes (Rebecca - RH) along with another resume writer, to work on 2 slightly varying aspects of my resume (as I also felt it'd be good to get slightly differing perspectives). RH Resumes totally blew the other one out of the water (check my other review to see what a disaster the other one was). Right from the first call, I felt like RH really knew what she was talking about - and more importantly listening to what I was saying rather than pitching her services and ability. She also send me a bunch of formats to choose from so she had an idea of which ones I preferred - though she gave her professional opinion on which formats to use depending on my background. She was quite prompt in sending the first draft as well; I found some of the points I mentioned to her in our first call appear in well-formed/formatted concise sentences in the first draft. I was very pleased with her very first draft as it surpassed my expectations. What I was impressed with was the crux of my accomplishments were preserved while cutting down the superfluous details that I had initially found quite hard to trim (as I was too close to it). Though we went through a couple of rounds of tweaking, she was very open to my suggestions, and was prompt in trying to slightly different formats based on my suggestions. Her willingness to truly listen, get a good understanding of my expectation right from the beginning while working with a format/template structure that I had chosen initially, and delivering a stellar first draft, makes her one of the best resume authors I've worked with. She could be easily charging a bit more for her services for the type of work she did. I'd highly recommend her any day. Thanks RH!

Rebecca was nothing short of fantastic! I was in a real bind and needed resume assistance on very short notice. I reached out to Rebecca, told her about my situation, explained my very limited timeframe and she delivered! You definitely get what you pay for with Rebecca - she is worth every penny! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for resume assistance and would definitely use her again. She really helped me in a bind and her work was terrific! The result is a resume I can be proud of thanks to her hard work.

Amazing Service and results. Rebecca didn't ask me to till out forms; she conducted a phone interview that last at least 1.5 hours and the outcome was an outstanding resume that really reflected my experience and qualifications. She produced a C-level work product that required VERY FEW revisions. Highly recommended!!

I've known Emily for a little over two years and am a better person because of it. She has an incredible way of looking at situations that help make them feel manageable, normal, and possible to change. They way she helps you walk through the things you're feeling and living allows you to take back the feeling of "enoughness" and write your own ending to the story. She's no BS, no judgement, and will empower you to live a life believing you can conquer shame, insecurities, and fear. Her belief in you will have a huge impact on your belief in yourself. She also changed my resume game completely. She took my resume and made it work for me and helped me land a job in my dream career within a few months. She know what employers are looking for and how to take your skills and prove to them that you are capable. Emily knows her stuff, she's an excellent writer and editor with a professional eye. She will do the job exceptionally well.

She is an amazing woman and I am very thankful I spent the time with her that I did!

First of all, Tony was very professional and completed my resume in a timely manner. My resume was well written and succinct. It included all of my skills and education and was readable. I was given the opportunity to have him make changes that I made along the way at no additional charge. Tony understood how to write my resume and direct the reader to the skills that made me uniquely qualified in my field (credit management). He took the time to discuss my accomplishments and pertinent information (dates of employment, important data about my former customers, special skills, education, etc.) so that he could present my credentials in the best possible way. Tony also coached me on how to present myself during the interview process and gave me a list of probable questions I would be asked. He pretended he was the prospective employer and evaluated my response to those questions. The time he took with me proved to be very valuable. Almost immediately, I got responses to my resume and was given phone- and in-person interviews. Within a month, I was given a second interview with a Fortune 500 company and was hired. In conclusion, I am sure that you will also become a satisfied customer. Regards, Nicholas Irmiere

Tony generated a very professional resume. He formatted it so that it looked great both on the printed page and on screen. Tony spent time on the phone with me gathering the salient points--education, experience, skill sets, honors and awards, publications, etc., then drafted a resume which I was able to review and edit as needed. Happily, Tony did such a great job displaying and emphasizing my credentials that I did not have to change anything! I was invited to participate in both phone screenings and in-person interviews. Tony acted as job coach to prepare me for those events through role playing exercises where he was the interviewer and I was the interviewee. During these sessions, Tony helped me become aware of my phone presence, made suggestions regarding my delivery, and recommended that I stay on topic when answering questions, yet expand to emphasize my expertise in the field, when necessary. I am extremely pleased with Tony's abilities as a resume writer and interview coach. I know that you will find this to be the case as well. Tony's methods resulted in my landing a new job. I have been working there for six months. I know that Tony's efforts and instruction helped me get my position.

I am so Happy that I chose Maria! My resume was a mess, she connected all my dangling sentences and made sense. My Resume was 4 pages and I did not know what to do to make it look beautiful and make sense! I had 2 resumes and Maria combined them into 1 beautiful resume'. I did not have a working printer , so Maria, reviewed all the changes she did, made me (hard copies) as well as doing the Resume in PDF and Word! This was the best experience that I ever had in my life, especially having my Resume professionally done!!!!!!

I would love to recommend Charles Worrell for résumé and/or cover letter writing. He helped my friend with her resume and she got a great job. It took a while for me to struggle with my resume by myself, but once I met with him it was done in a matter of hours. Charles did an amazing job for me in a very short time!!! The main thing - he left my personality there, so when I read my resume i don't feel like I am reading about a stranger. He perfectly stated my professional goals and philosophy in the cover letter. He didn't change them, didn't create some fancy unrelated sentences but he picked up my inner vision and thoughts in a very subtle way. He wrote everything I wanted to express but could never find the right words. Someone helped me with my resume before, and it came out very professional but very dry, not representing me at all. These resume and cover letter are "so me" and so professional. I am VERY impressed with his work! if you're looking for someone to help you with your Resume and Cover letter, I highly recommend him!

I can't recommend Charles highly enough. He is absolutely amazing as a person and as a professional. I was struggling so much with my resume before I met him and couldn't find good job. After a few meetings with him he was able to figure out what are my string sides are and put everything so beautifully together that when I read it I cried. Really. I didn't know that I am that great but everything he wrote was true. And as you can guess I found a job right away. I recommend him to all my friends and they all are happy with him and ALL got job quickly. I suspect that besides being a good writer he also brings good luck. I can't thank you enough, Charles!

It's simple to go with a cookie cutter resume, or (gasp!), try to write one yourself. However, cookie cutter resumes make you appear like everyone else, and resume writing without an objective perspective is unwise; you're too close to the subject matter. Whether you’ve been in transition earlier in your career, or have found yourself unemployed for the first time, you are selling (you!) the product knowledge, and the tools you are utilizing will land your next role. A career communications firm, About That Resume concentrates on making an individual brand for job seekers and places them as leaders in the business process.
