Service Description

I offer services focused on helping my clients write or edit cover letters and resumes that will put them at the top of the list for interviews.

During my four years as a history major at a liberal arts college, I honed my writing skills and became adept at writing both long, research intensive papers of up to fifty pages in length as well as writing short, focused pieces under strict word limits. I feel comfortable...
