I'm a veteran professional writer with a diverse background across magazine publishing, public relations, marketing, copywriting, editing, and resume writing. In my early years, I worked primarily within the magazine industry as an editor for such well-known magazines as Woman's Day.

For the past 11 years, I've been focusing most of my creative energies on producing winning resume and cover letter packages for clients. It's rewarding work. I have a passion for it--and it shows in the documents I produce.

Resume Writing

Service Description

I'm a seasoned CPRW with 11+ years' experience preparing resumes for 3 of the top US resume writing firms. I've written resumes and cover letter packages for executives and professionals of all levels--from entry-level to C-Level Executives, across such diverse industries as IT, Marketing, Sales, Healthcare, Academia, Finance, Real Estate, Advertising, Manufacturing, Accounting, Legal, HR, Corporate Training, etc. I also have experience helping students with their MBA application resumes.

The companies I've worked for have charged up to $900 for the documents I've produced (no kidding); on my own, I charge much more reasonable rates for the exact same quality of work.

To date, I've prepared 3,500+ resumes and cover letter packages and assisted job seekers across the US and abroad to successfully land new jobs.

Here are some samples of past client accolades:

Sample of Client Testimonials:
I want you to know that I was offered a position and accepted it yesterday. This is a direct result of the resume you prepared on my behalf. I know this because I was contacted the day after I used the resume in a posting. Not to mention the fact that I had previously posted at the same company with my version and was denied via a computer generated email. I am sharing this information with you because the work you are doing is so important.
~ T. C.

Once again, thank you so much. You did a terrific job, and you are a pleasure to work with. I love the resume you created for me...
