Introduction: In today's market, you need to grab a reader's attention within seconds. Whether you need a resume, press release, or proposal, my goal is to make you stand out. Your resume is an important document and marketing tool: it not only forms the first impression for the potential hiring manager, it has the power to impact your financial future. The trust you put into a writer or editor is critical. Crafting a professional bio, cover letter, college admissions essay, or resume requires a professional who: ✔ Gets to know you and your background ✔ Leverages your strengths ✔ Uses emerging technology and keyword optimization to boost the likelihood of an interview if you're seeking resume assistance ✔ Enhances your document through the use of strong verbs and language, succinct phrases, and a logical, strategic order ✔ Formats your document well, ensuring it's visually appealing yet not overdone (for resumes, too much design is a turn-off and also can hurt your chances of getting past applicant tracking systems (ATS)) I get results for you by offering professional writing, strategic thinking, and creative ideas. CAREER ADVANCEMENT SERVICES (Resumes, letters, LinkedIn) With today's technology, over 75% of resumes never get into human hands. Too many talented, qualified individuals are being turned away from a good job fit because the resume is structured poorly or doesn't use keywords that match up to their job preferences. You need a killer resume. I enjoy helping people advance in their careers and secure a better financial future. As a former CEO with years of hiring experience, I understand how decisions are made, and I put my experience to work for you. ✔ Exceptional customer service, prompt replies, & a high-quality resume, so you can step forward with confidence ✔ Satisfied clients who get the interview for top job preferences ✔ An ATS-friendly version for online apps ✔ Use of an applicant tracking system (ATS) developed by top recruiters and hiring managers to help keyword optimize your resume If you want a great resume, send me yours and I'll polish it to perfection. STAND OUT IN A DIGITAL WORLD “The most important tool you have on a resume is language.” ― Jay Samit ***RESUME SERVICES*** Email me your existing resume or send through the Thumbtack app (click on the little paperclip to upload the file) If you need keyword-optimization for online submission, email me a link to the job you're applying for. For rush resumes (48-hour turnaround time, add $50). **** BUSINESS & PROFESSIONAL WRITING I've secured thousands of grants and contracts from various corporations, foundations, and government funders resulting in $300M raised for businesses and charities, including two awards of $80M each from the US government. Whether you need a fundraising plan, or a small or large grant proposal submitted, I can help. I've also secured over 30 grants and contracts in excess of $1M each for nonprofits and for-profit entities. NONPROFIT GRANTWRITING New nonprofits need infrastructure to get grants. For me to write a grant for a new nonprofit, please reach out if you: ✔ Have had your 501c3 for at least two years ✔ Have an online presence ✔ Know the specific project you need funding for (include a link to the application) (my skill set is compiling a grant for an opportunity already identified) ✔ Have at least one full-time staff member and a board of directors If you have these items in place, please contact me for your grant writing needs. PROFESSIONAL BRAND DEVELOPMENT I help my clients create and advance their personal brand with expert editing support for resumes and cover letters, CVs, bios, and LinkedIn profiles. Emphasize your unique qualifications and accomplishments, transition your skillset into a new field, eliminate red flags, and present your work experience in the most favorable manner. I’m proud to have helped clients advance their careers and land interviews even in the toughest job markets.

I recently hired Cynthia for a resume Makeover and she managed to efficiently condense my resume. She also rewrote and reorganized my resume for an impacting presentation. I highly recommend Cynthia as your next Professional Resume Writer. Her Writing style is impeccable and her attention to detail make her one if not the best resume writer on Thumbtack. She is 101% endorsed by me and wish her all the best now and in the future. With Regards, Christian Ruiz, Senior Security Architect/Program Manager

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Different types of writing have different fee structures. Some writing is intensive while other writing is more routine. To get started on resumes, email me or contact me through Thumbtack if you'd like a brief, 20-minute consultation first. BASIC FEE STRUCTURE: - Entry-Level Resumes: $145 - Mid-Level: $165 - Senior-Level: $195 - C-suite (CIO, CEO, CFO): $235 Keyword Optimization (1-3 positions): $0 - included in fees above, but tell me you want this Blank Letterhead (to match your resume): $0 - included in fee above, but tell me you want this Cover letters (generic or specific) are additional: $40-$75 LinkedIn profile set-up/optimization: $40-$75 Thank you letters (any level): $35 Keyword-optimization for 3 more positions: $35 Additional cover letters, targeted toward certain jobs (after the first cover letter order): $35 each ***PAYMENT INFO*** My business uses Square which accepts several different payment forms, but if you'd like to pay via Venmo, CashApp, or Paypal, just let me know and I can send my payment information to you. I ask for half up-front to start. Once paid, factor the 3- to 5-day turnaround period (please exclude weekends and holidays). I work at your desired speed...when you want me to start, please secure deposit. Sometimes I’m able to complete within 3 business days but some projects may take up to 5 business days.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    ***I am currently unable to accept any book clients (fiction, nonfiction) or nonprofit clients needing grants or business plans, as I have a full load of clients needing these services*** _________________________________________ Ideal process: 1. Let me know you'd like me to place an order, or email me or send a Thumbtack message to schedule a 20 to 30-minute consultation. 2. Send me the document that requires editing (or application form and instructions). Attach the document via the Thumbtack app or email it. If a resume, tell me the job you are applying for (if applicable) or the job description so I can use it to keyword optimize if desired I'll gather insights and will share recommendations with you. 3. I contact you with questions if I have any. 4. I'll send you a draft for review. Remember, the draft is a reformat, redesign and reworking of your original resume, so it may need to go through a few iterations before it's suited perfectly toward you and the position. Think of it as a suit you're getting tailored. It needs to fit well. We'll need to tweak a few things, snip areas, and add length elsewhere. There is no *one resume fits all*. 5. You email or call me with any edits you can think of. 6. You pay the balance (remaining half). I'll send your final documents in PDF and Word formats.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    ✔ A sharp eye, mind, and pencil ✔ Years of training and retraining ✔ A knack for writing ✔ An avid reader and lover of words ✔ An obsession with perfection! ✔ Knowledge of emerging or shifting trends ✔ A college degree, a graduate degree, pursuing an MFA (creative writing) ✔ 30+ years of writing and leadership/management experience ✔ 17+ years experience as a CEO ✔ Frequent attendee of numerous writing workshops to stay sharp and current ✔ Membership in four writing organizations or circles ✔ Years of honing a skillset to perfection
