Mr. Day did a phenomenal work on my resume, I was completely lost since the last resume i wrote was over 20 years ago. He explained details on today's resume writing and gave me top notch advice on preparing for an interview. I received my new resume within a week and the resume has a distinctive professional appearance. I highly recommend Mr. Day to anyone who needs an excellent resume and cover letter.

I am writing this review as I am extremely happy with the services Coach Lynn provided. After several sessions with her and professionally written resume I got two interviews out of only 3 jobs I have applied for and have already scheduled my final interview at the University of my choice! Coach Lynn didn't only give me a professional advice, but she motivated me to do my best when I felt discouraged! She is truly an amazing life coach! I can always text her for an advice or just an encouragement and she's always there for you! She is super friendly and sweet and has a calm positive aura that brings enormous positivity! What a finding! I knew it right away it would have been a successful companionship! She is outstanding!!!

Mr. Mullen's attention to detail, and professionalism are unmatched. Tom is very personable, and takes a keen interest in clearly understanding the client's skill sets. My abilities, and accomplishments were clearly highlighted. Tom consistently went above and beyond, ensuring I was aware of job alerts, interview techniques, and upcoming job fairs. He, and his wife are a great resume writing team, and I am confident my cover letter/resume will open many doors.

Excellent, high quality professional work, dedicated, the editor delivered an excellent quality deliverable under a very tight deadline. An investment I will never regret and will definitely use the services again. The editor is highly knowledgeable with insights that go beyond usual writing tasks. I am highly obliged for her expert suggestions which I have accepted all. I have already recommended her to my other friends and clients, and shared with them very professional experiences I have received while working Lauren on multiple projects. I will be working with her in near and long term future definitely. Highly recommended!

I had a one on one session with Tom and it was fantastic. At first I thought I was pretty ok with my speech outline before I talked to him. It wasn't until we talked about the structure of my speech that I realized my speech lacked focus. Long story short, we completely restructured my speech together and Tom gave me extremely great insights on how to plan out my speech before I even begin writing it. This is knowledge something that I will take it to the heart and will never forget.

My experience with Erin was very brief but, very helpful and enjoyable. My 4th grader needed help with his writing. she did a very thorough assessment of his ability and proceeded. It was summer and we had a lot of travel and were not consistent clients. We are currently looking to rehire and work with her this winter/spring.

Ms. Belle has tutored my twins since September 2016. She is great with them and they love working with her. I have seen significant improvements in my kids' written ability in terms of clarity, volume, flow, and style. They are in the 5th Grade AAP Level IV program in FCPS and are now comfortable constructing multiple paragraphs to express their ideas or tell a story. My daughter is especially confident and excited in her writing since working with Ms. Belle. My son's ability to write about his passion for sports has soared. The effort is reflected in the last two report cards and in the grades that they receive on their language arts projects. I highly recommend Ms. Belle as a language arts tutor and we will continue to engage her services.

    Nancy Halsey has written grants for our organization for almost 10 years. She has exceptional writing and editing skills. After Nancy wrote a particular grant, the foundation called me to say it was the best well-written grant they had received. I have never received a phone call like that before. Nancy is professional and honest; she uses research and wisdom when writing grants and talking with employees. I highly recommend her for any writing opportunities that you may have. L.

    P. R. Cheek has helped me numerous times on my colllege essays. She was very professional and provided assistance to ensure my papers were cohesive, flowed in a way to make sense, and were on topic. She would tell me what to eliminate from the paper and how to add more descriptive yet pertinent details to make sure my ideas got across. She would explain feedback to make sure you could understand your paper and your voice was in the paper. I got all A’s on the papers she helped write and still use her to this day!

        I can't say enough about how Amazing Julie's writing skills are! I hadn't had much luck with landing interviews... That is until I found Julie! She worked with me to develop a resume that just blew my mind when I saw it. She pulled out what I knew was in me, but couldn't put into words or articulate well in my old resume. Within two days of sending out my amazing new resume, I was contacted by multiple companies - including Apple, my dream job. I interviewed and landed the job. I can honestly say that I know they wouldn't have looked at my resume had it not been for Julie's fresh style and amazing writing. Do yourself a favor and let her help you! You won't regret it!

            About

            I provide the services to local home owner associations (HOA) that the volunteer members dread doing like producing updated newsletters, creating and managing community Facebook pages with news and updated community pertinent information, organizing community events and fund raisers and picking up trash in the common areas of the community. Yes, even picking up trash. It's a dirty job but someone has to do it! Everyone that owns a home wants their community to be one that they can be proud to live in and managing a community and keeping it safe and beautiful requires alot of work and volunteers but let's face it, the homeowners that typically volunteer to serve on the board are almost always go-getters that are stretched way too thin as it is so that's where I come in! There's no reason to let things in your community go undone because you don't have the manpower or the time needed to get things accomplished. As long standing HOA board member myself, I know how hard it is to rally the troops together for the good of the whole community. Whether its creating an attractive quarterly newsletter, setting up a community Facebook page or writing the Welcome to the Community Handbook, I can say what you want to say in an effective and professional manner. My rates are affordable and will help take the pressure off board members that really need to concentrate of making the proper decisions on behalf of the community and not writing content. Some of my clients include Armstrong Management, Gables I of Gunston Corner, Pine Forest, Village of Gun Springs. Glen II.

            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.
