Metroplex did a super job writing 3 resumes and 2 cover letters. They just didn't turn out the resumes they used my input to fine tune each one for my exact needs. When you compare prices for what they did for me I doubt you will find a more professional service. Ann and Phil put a lot of work into my resumes and they are worth every penny!

Larry assisted me with writing my resume and he was truly amazing, and helpful. Prior to leaving the military, and then again after I retired, I've had a few people look over my resume. None came close to the product Larry produced for me. He was professional, articulate, focused and the final product was very well written, concise and extremely well written and organized. He spent a lengthy amount of his own time, as well as working with me, to ensure every segment of my professional career was covered in the final document. He is also quality gentleman and for that, and for his assistance, I owe him my gratitude.

My family has used Karen for writing and editing for over eight years. She has also taught several of my now adult children in composition. She is very professional and at the same time patient and kind. We have witnessed her editing skills countless times, and always with great results. Highly recommend!

If you are looking for fast and professional editing, Jay is the person for you! He is extremely prompt via phone or email. I had used his help for my medical school essays, and he made sure all my responses were grammatically correct and enjoyable to read. If you are utilizing your writing to further your career, I highly suggest hiring Jay to ensure perfectness on your application. Thank you Jay, and I hope your services help many more like me! Feedback: I would have liked it more if you could have given more suggestions to improve the essay by editing/rephrasing the sentences.

Andria Flores stands out among professionals as one of the most conscientious of clients and coworkers. A professional relationship that begin with her as my client soon inspired me to bring her onto my publishing team. Smart and efficient, and equally warm and supportive, Andria earned her spot as one of the best people with whom I’ve ever worked.

      My overall experience with Bridges Career Services, LLC had been amazing. My resume looks awesome and I already had a TON on job opportunities open up for me since posting it! It did take a little time for my resume to be completed but once I emailed Camron, he responded right back and completed my resume within 2 hours of his reply! And honestly, my resume is awesome so I'm glad I waited. :)

        I wish I can find words worth enough to describe his work. Tyler listens to your needs and customizes your resume according to them. Not only Tyler is professional writing resumes, but also he helps you uncover your strengths to employers. Tyler responded within 24 hours to deliver my resume with the best work quality ever. When he promises a date, he fulfills to his promise with punctuality and great value. I recommended him to my friends and family. I dealt in the past with resume writers, but none are comparable to Tyler's work. He is the best.

        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.
