    Laura George Consulting, LLC

    (6 reviews)

    My goal is to empower students to realize their full potential and achieve acceptance to their ideal colleges, and I have pursued this passion for over 10 years. I enjoy getting to know students so that I can provide customized ACT/SAT tutoring and help them tap into their unique, authentic voices when writing college application essays. My ability to connect with young adults and my first-hand knowledge of the parameters by which schools evaluate applicants make me ideally suited to partner with students as they navigate their college application journeys. My services include taking a student from day one of ACT/SAT test prep through to submitting polished, introspective college application essays that will resonate with admissions officers. I truly get to know students so that I can customize the entire test prep and essay development process for them. The ability for students to bond with one trusted individual who can guide them through this process is invaluable. By partnering with me to reach their full potential on the ACT/SAT and craft the most genuine, revealing application essays, students can be confident that I have helped position them in the best possible manner on their college applications. I graduated from Duke University cum laude and with distinction with a B.A. in psychology, and I later earned an MBA with a concentration in marketing from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. I served as a member of the Admissions Committee during my two years as a full-time student at Kellogg and read and reviewed hundreds of applications throughout my tenure. I am, therefore, very well informed about the qualities colleges are seeking in top candidates and highly skilled in advising students on how to craft excellent essays and develop solid applications. I have found that the college application process fundamentally aligns with the MBA process, and thus I have successfully transferred these insights to my college admissions clients. I am an experienced writer with professional training, and I have a background in copywriting, marketing, brand management, and advertising. The combination of my psychology studies and career as a brand/marketing manager enable me to relate well with students and help them develop their own unique “brand” as they craft their college essays and complete other application materials. In addition, I have received professional training as an ACT tutor. I taught group ACT prep courses in a high school in the Northern Chicago suburbs prior to moving to an individual-based tutoring model nearly 10 years ago. I am also honored to be the mother for four incredibly wonderful boys, and I cherish this role every day. I draw from my experiences as a parent to build rapport with students and help them identify and articulate their unique stories as I guide them through the admissions process. I am passionate about getting to know students and learning about their interests and achievements so that I can help them dig deep and produce the most effective college application essays. I find that students will open up to me even when they are reluctant to do so with their parents. As a parent of four myself, I am intimately familiar with this phenomenon! Within the college application consulting process, I advise on topic selection, then edit and strengthen the student's essay drafts. I also tutor students in ACT, SAT, and SSAT test prep. For clients who are in college or have graduated, I advise on and edit law, medical, and other graduate school application essays/personal statements and edit and wordsmith thesis papers and dissertations. I also write, edit, and perfect resumes and cover letters.

    Eric Hjertberg

    (3 reviews)

    I have professional training in technical writing form Harvard University's Barbara Minto ("The Pyramid Principle") and other writers. Professional fees depend on the nature of the assignment. Factors I consider include deadlines, research effort required, and assignment duration. Hourly rates may be as little as $30. A fixed fee may also be negotiated. The pleasure of crafting a cogent and readable document that anyone can appreciate. I think the some of the best examples of writing today appear in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and The Economist. Non-fiction book authors and educators such as Alexis Madrigal and Henry Petroski make arcane technical subjects appeal to just about any thinking person. I am able to help clients produce work in which no reader's questions about the writer's main points and the reasoning behind them are left unanswered.

    Writing and Editing with a Flair

    (2 reviews)

    I am best known for taking multiple sources of information and creating a coherent whole. For example, many organizations have vast amounts of material that needs to be collated to in order to portray a unified message. I am an expert at creating simplified yet meaningful messaging using a wide variety of information. I have most recently done this for the World Bank where I highlighted key achievements of their disaster risk management development projects. I like most seeing a happy customer who sees their own accomplishments shaped into a positive message, feature or report. Most recently with the World Bank, I highlighted how a small fishing village re-energized its economy by clearing a local canal of invasive plant species.

    Resume writing in not just about "writing a resume". Let me explain, the GOAL of resume writing is to get an interview; however, in a world of too much information how do get noticed when you have only about 4 - 6 seconds. My goal is to help you become noticed in those few short seconds and then leave a memorable impressionable for days, weeks, or months to come. There are a number of ways to make this happen, both in the content of the resume, but also in the way it is formatted and the graphics. Having seen and worked with over 10,000 resumes over my career and working on both sides of recruiting I know what most people do and what stands out. You have ONLY 6 seconds - NOT the 2-3 minutes most say - to capture the recruiters attention. It is very difficult to stand out especially if you are applying for the top job in your field where there will be hundreds of applications. Additionally, there are many "tricks" recruiters use to separate resumes apart. 96% of resumes go immediately to the trash pile without EVER GETTING LOOKED AT! It is important to know what these are, and almost every "resume writer" gets this wrong. This is where having an insider in the recruitment field is so important. It's like playing in a chess tournament and having a Chess Grand Master whispering all the moves in your ear. Helping people. Everything else would be prideful and vain.

    This review is long over due. Mark's services from resume writing to interview coaching fit all of my needs. I had not required a resume in a long time and had a unusual career path of that as a business owner prior to being called to active duty as a Army Reserve Officer. Being able to actually meet with Mark and explain my parallel careers set him apart from his peers. After completing my resume he then proceeded to train/coach me on his unique yet effective cover letter and interview process. Several employers have had nothing but positive feedback and job offers are starting to mount!

    Robin is phenomenal! She really took the time to understand my needs before making changes to my resume. After our initial phone consultation, she was available via email throughout to offer encouragement about the job-seeking process. The revisions she made showcase my talents, abilities, and skills in a way that is more visually pleasing. I have no doubt job offers will begin to roll in with this updated resume fit to my specific industry. I will continue to use Robin's services and highly recommend her!
