I reached out to thumbtack to find professionals who were really good at writing resumes and I had several writers (including Karen) who responded. I narrowed it down to 2 (which included Karen) and immediately contacted both. I wasn't able to reach both parties so I left a message on both voicemails. Within 10 minutes Karen returned my call and I told her what I wanted done. After listening to her speak for a few minutes I told her she was hired. I was very impressed about how well she listened and her description of how she would create a resume that I would be pleased with. Well, to make a long story short, Karen produced an EXCELLENT resume and cover letter! I was very happy with her work. She is very professional and really meets the deadline that was agreed on. If I could give her overall performance 10 stars I certainly would. I am also looking forward to having her set up my LINKEDIN account. If you're looking for a resume writer look no further because you will not regret going forward with Spring Forward. Career Services & Business Documents. I have absolutely no complaints!! Great Job Karen!

David was absolutely amazing in helping me articulate just what I wanted to say to my sister on her wedding day! My sisters and I had the idea to make our speech into a poem for our other sisters wedding day. I am not a very good poem writer, however, David helped me take my thoughts and put it into a poem! He was extremely quick in his responses, flexible with making changes, and so beyond easy to work with! I highly recommend his professionalism and his creativeness!

Matt has a very good work around! He did a resume within 24 hours and I’m very happy about it. I just recently had him write and edit my resume. It was really good and I’m happy with the final outcome. I had no issues on the outcome of the work. He’s definitely commendable as a resume writer!

David has exceeded my expectations. I had two unprofessional experiences and was skeptical searching for a resume writer online. He is so nice, professional, prompt, and very knowledgeable.

As a writer, editor, and coach, Lauren is a thorough professional -- objective, knowledgeable, and experienced. She understands what a draft is trying to do and has suggestions that not only clarify but also deepen a work in progress. I trust her insight completely. I would not have published my work without her wise assistance and encouragement.

Marian did a fantastic job on helping me get my resume updated. It's really such a better representation of who I am and how I want to project myself to potential employers and clients. She has a multi-layered understanding of the process and is a really effective and creative writer. She was also responsive to my need to get the work done within a tight time-window, which I appreciated a lot. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Chris has been completing grants for my organization, Crossroads of Iowa for practically a year now. I've turned them all over to him to complete. He also edited a speech I gave for two sermons. He also completed a budget for one of my recent grants. I don't want to write something that will be so grand that Chris won't have time for my grants! Anyway, he's easy to work with and gives his opinion freely and I trust his judgement.

After so much time spent on finding the right wellness coach, someone who listened without judgement, who guided without pushing and instilled confidence while asking for nothing, I found Shelley. The time I spent with Shelley helped me make decisions that I thought were too tough. I was scared to try. She let me see how the scary part isn’t in the trying, it’s in the not trying. I was able to see, not only what I wanted from life, but that I could do it. Thank you Shelley!!!!!

    After thirty two years I needed a resume, so I ask Jean MacKenzie for help. I have read many letters, articles, and reports written by Jean and knew she would use proper wordsmithing and structure. Jean listened to all my experiences over the years and sorted out what was important and vital to resume without being overwhelming. Jean had my resume done in a few days after our meeting and resume is outstanding.

    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.
