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!

Rebecca was great with taking my old resume and enhancing it for me. Looks like Thumbtack wants me to write a novel, but I will not, Rebecca did a great job.

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.

Samara was very helpful in preparing my resume for the job search process! She brought her knowledge of the hiring process to strategize on how best to tailor my resume for each specific job, and worked with me to find the best way to highlight my skills and accomplishments. Samara was extremely detailed in reviewing language, grammar and formatting. The resume we created is clean, professional and helped me to land my first job out of college! I will definitely be using her again for my next resume edit.

Ms. Twillie is awesome! She contacted me right away. We spoke for a while to help me feel comfortable with her expertise and services. She is prompt, quick on her feet and very knowledgeable with resume writing, career coaching, etc. She is well worth the investment and I hope to utilize her services again as needed. She is also passionate in helping people present their best selves via technology in order to get that face to face interview.

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.

Excellent proofreader! She is easy to work with and she always returned my documents before I needed them back. The program she uses makes it easy for me to accept or reject any changes or suggestions she may make. I am working on my masters, which means I am writing papers galore and I recommend her to all my friends who are in school. Reasonably priced too especially when your talking about the difference between an A paper and a C paper!

I was thrilled to have Sharon write my resume and cover letter! I was concerned about having to go back to work full-time after being at home with my children. Sharon assured me that it was fine, and was able to explain my resume gap with ease. She is a very talented writer, and I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

    Emperatriz Tejada.. No words. I'm baffled at how fantastic my wedding was. The colors, so unique so classy, simple yet so elegant. So many minor details I would've overlooked had he planning fell on me. Emperatriz worked tirelessly to make it the best day of my life and was always available to adapt to my changes and requests. My guests even wanted to buy my decor from me after the wedding was over! Emperatriz you will plan all my events forever! Thank you so much!

    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. :)

      Kathryn helped my daughter fine tune her college entrance essays. My daughter said, “Kathryn is good at helping you stay true to your own preferences of writing style but at the same time enhancing it. Kathryn was detail-oriented so important aspects of the assignment were not overlooked . She’s professional but still fun, friendly, and easy to talk with about the subject at hand.” I’d agree with my daughter on all counts and, to top it off, our daughter was admitted into her top pick of universities. We’d recommend Kathryn as a tutor.

        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.
