Victoria was AMAZING! She has such a fun personality and is really easy to get along with. If you're having any sort of issues with your resume, or want to switch career paths, she is the perfect person to help you. She has some serious creative writing skills and can take a bad resume and turn it into an amazing one in no time at all. Highly recommend!Jul 11, 2017Verified
Victoria has done wonders with my old resume! Great to work with and very patient. I couldn't be more happy with our collaboration.Apr 26, 2016Verified
Victoria is all that!!! She helped me with several resumes/cover letters. We met in a place that was convenient for me since I do not drive. She arrived on time and was ready to work. I was impressed by her professionalism and sense of humor. Victoria worked with me on the resume, she did not do it alone. I met her twice, and each time was perfect. I would definitely use her services again and recommend her to others.Feb 4, 2015Verified
I had a fantastic experience working with Victoria. Not only was she prompt and professional, she was fun intelligent and an excellent organizer of ideas. My resemu and cover letter needed a lot of help. Victoria restructured my resume from the ground up. We brainstormed, reworded and reorganized my resume in such a manner as it is now a much netter representation of my work/life experience. I recommend Victoria in every way . Not only will you have a good time working with her, but you will be proud of the result A+ Jack Cassidy Professional Musician and Music EducatorDec 16, 2014Verified
Victoria is very patient and straightforward. Her professionalism is outstanding. She really helped me dig through my skills and qualifications I did not know I had and applied them in my resume. She will take her time and not rush just to get the work done. I highly recommend her.Nov 10, 2014Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge clients by the hour. My appointments are two hours long, whether in person or done remotely. There are no contracts or packages. I am happy to give a general estimate of how long it usually takes to edit a Resume, Linked-in page, Cover Letter. Creating web content, working on Common App Essays/SOP's or improving one's English skills all require vastly different amounts of time, depending on the client's goals, needs and timeline. Each client is unique. You can decide how many sessions you like as we work together.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our first appointment involves discussion about goals and deadlines, as well as an overview of any documents such as Resumes, Cover Letters, LinkedIn pages, research paper assignments, graduate school declaration of research or dissertations. From there, we begin the process of editing/writing and make an overall plan for sessions moving forward. Some clients work with me 2-3 times a week if they have a project that is under a deadline. Some clients work with me remotely on editing documents, with a combination of Skype/Facetime sessions and me working on academic papers, marketing campaigns or other forms of writing on my own and then reconvening to discuss changes. Many of my long-term, international clients have a "standing appointment" with me once a week as they are C-Level Executives who work with me continuously on their Business English skills, presentations, developing web content, etc. So there is no "typical process" because different clients have different needs. The point is, this is my business 7 days a week, and I am flexible about the consulting/coaching arrangement. We will create a plan that works for you and whatever you are currently working on.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a published author and have been writing professionally for the last 20 years. I have a BA English Composition from Beloit College. I am a TESOL Certified English Instructor. I taught English as a Second Language for the City Colleges of Chicago for 15 years. I also created curriculum and taught very specialized Vocational English/Business English/Accent Reduction Courses for the City Colleges during that same period. I taught English in Japan for 4 years through the JET Program and as a Consultant for many Japanese companies. I have literally coached 1000's of professionals and Bachelors - PhD Level Students on all aspects of their careers including editing/writing all necessary documents, goal setting, navigating job applications and/or the college application process and intensive coaching on the process of successfully capturing their academic/career/life goals.
