Resume, LinkedIn and Cover Letter Writing

When you feel drained by your job, the last thing you want to do is spend your evenings writing your résumé. Let me help you get ready for your job hunt.

Résumé Writing and Modernization

Has it been several years since you reformatted your résumé, and you’re not sure where to start? I’m happy to design and write it for you. Pricing starts at $300 and includes a personalized, in-depth interview to uncover your strengths and accomplishments.

Cover Letter Help

Unsure of what to say to stand out in a cover letter? Wondering if you should even bother? Let me help you get started.

I write cover letters that help you stand out, with my unique approach to connecting on a human level with hiring managers, then coach you on ways to personalize it for each job application.

LinkedIn Updates

Most people I talk with are not fully leveraging LinkedIn for their job hunts. I help clients update their profile and use it as a tool to research organizations and industries and build their professional network.

My Process

The first step in working with me is to email me your existing résumé,  if you have one, and briefly describe your job hunt goals. Then I can email you a quote with a free critique of your document, no strings attached. I’m also happy to chat by phone to answer any questions you have.

Why Me?

As a former newspaper editor with career counselor experience at major universities, I’m uniquely positioned to help you with your job hunt documents.

I’m a Certified Professional Resume Writer, and I draw upon my training both career services and as journalist to explore your background and highlight the best of your experience.

I don’t use templates. I focus on creating fresh content that help you stand out.  Please see my “about” page for more information on my qualifications.

I feel strongly in serving my clients with empathy. Many people are surprised at how emotional it can be to prepare for and launch a job hunt. I have a master’s degree in counseling, and while what I do is not “therapy,” I approach my work with a nonjudgmental attitude. And of course I

‘I can’t believe how much things have changed in only 6 weeks.’

“I grew personally in more ways than one. I also learned about résumé editing and formatting, gained a résumé makeover, and learned the importance and functions of LinkedIn, which I had no experience with. I can’t believe how much things have changed in only 6 weeks with all the exploration we have done. Thank you for everything!

‘Incredible.’
