Introduction: I’m a writer and editor with over 10 years of experience with resumes and cover letters. I have worked both as a freelancer and with career resources companies and organizations. I assist my clients with the nuts and bolts of polishing their resumes and cover letters so that they can navigate their job search process with greater confidence and ease. As part of this, I love supporting job seekers in articulating their unique mix of passions, gifts, and skills so that they can put their best foot forward and get real traction in a career that they LOVE. I believe that we can each build a fulfilling, impactful career that suit us, and I love supporting my clients in rediscovering their sense of clarity, passion, and drive about the work they do in the world.

Lucy was absolutely delightful to work with. She called me to review my wants and needs. My resume outcome was professional which lead to some interview call backs. Highly recommend Lucy:)

I have only good things to say about Lucy. She responded almost immediately to my inquiry and to any questions I had through the process. With my resume, she helped with stylistic changes as well as content. With cover letters she gave me important feedback that I needed. After her help I could confidentially sent out my job applications. It's clear she really cares about the quality of her work and about helping her clients the very best way she can.

FAQs

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

    An initial session would start with an intake interview/discussion, during which we talk through the client's background, skills, and goals. Next, I prepare a draft of their new or updated resume and/or cover letter. Finally, once they've had the chance to review everything, I'll prepare and send final versions.

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

    I have a B.A. in English from Harvard University, and was trained in resume and cover letter writing at LIFT, LiveCareer, and Arriba Juntos.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started volunteering in college supporting Cambridge-area residents with job searches as part of the Cambridge office of a non-profit called LIFT. In addition to learning about how to write effective resumes and cover letters, I realized that I loved supporting my clients in working toward securing jobs. While working as a freelance writer a few years later, I found a job with a career resources company, an experience that reaffirmed for me how much I loved resume and cover letter writing as part of supporting people in navigating transitions in their careers.
