Jillian was phenomenal to work with! She was very quick, thorough and did a good amount of research to match my resume and LinkedIn profile to my experience and objectives. I had been with the same company for a long period of time and didnt really understand that you need to stand out and be up to date when looking for a new career. Jillian was able to quickly help. I’m excited to get my name out there now!Jan 21, 2018Verified
thumbtack came up with 3 contacts for my project. And then Jillian sent me an email. Two days later we met and within 4 days (since my initial inquiry) I had the first draft of my resume AND my cover letter. Jillian's work is exceptional. Her performance exceeded all my exceptions period. Jillian's ability to work collaboratively is like a breath of fresh air. She will not stop until you're content with the final product. She will make you stand out and accent your talents. I will defintly work with Jillian again in the future.Sep 25, 2017Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree in Communication with a journalism concentration from Villanova University.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?We are what we know. Growing up, my mother was an English and grammar teacher. I'd sit with her at the kitchen table while she graded - her red pen a trusty sword shining in the midst of a stack of papers a mile high. She taught me her tricks and tips, her shortcuts and symbols, and as writing became a great passion of mine, I began to realize that editing was too. Throughout high school and during my years as a communication major at Villanova University, I was always that girl with three of my friends' papers wedged into my purse. I was the one in the coffee shop scanning everything from Georgetown essays to Wilde vs. Whitman comparisons to thesis statements on speech pathology.
