Resume Review, Editing, & Rewriting

Resume make-overs, made simple!

Option #1: Resume Review & Editing – THIS IS FOR YOU IF:  your resume is “OK”…. but…. you KNOW it can be better! (but you sure can’t figure out how to do it on your own!) If you don’t need a major over haul, this process is perfect combo of benefiting from my expertise without having to make a big investment in time or money!

Option #2: Branded Resume Rewrites – THIS IS FOR YOU IF:  you just don’t want to do the heavy lifting yourself; you’d rather be interviewed by me and have me to a more in depth rework for you (though we’ll work as a team – I can’t do it without your input!) This is more of a time and financial commitment on your part than Option #1.

Not sure which is best for you? Download the 20 page guide, “Do I Actually NEED a Resume Writer?” here

Resume Review & Editing service uses my 15+ years of doing in-depth full service rewrites and condenses that expertise to make the process fast, simple, and within anyone’s budget.
Until about a year ago, I used to ONLY offer ‘full service resume rewrites with various packages of 1-1, full service options. The process took 2 weeks minimum, often a month or longer…..
Here’s what I’ve learned:  while SOME people NEED and WANT that in-depth full on rewriting and coaching services, many don’t need it, or simply can’t afford it in terms of time and/or money. (not sure what you need? I have a solution for that – download my FREE “Do I Actually NEED a Resume Writer?” 20 page guide!)
SO — I decided to add this option so that MORE people could afford to benefit from my 15+ years of expertise in a way that better fits more clients’ timeframes and budgets!
Here’s how it works & what is included:
1)  You send me your current best draft resume
2)  I write you an in depth, personalized review/critique your resume including: 
–the employer’s point of view;
–if I would read your resume if I was a hiring manager (or not – and why);
–format input and changes for polish and visual impact; pointers on strategy;
–the strengths of your current document and
–KEY IMPROVEMENTS to make,
–with specific, individualized questions about your content/background to help you discover important details you may be missing!
3) I also send you a lightly edited version of the original resume, which incorporates some of the comments/suggestions from the Review.  Note:  some of the suggestions from the Review would be up to you to make the changes yourself (for example on possible accomplishments you may have omitted that I can’t simply add myself)
4) Reference materials to help you make further edits
5) Option for a Follow Up Review/Edit after you make the suggested improvements and changes to the Edited Resume I sent you. This would likely be the final input and polish to your new resume, though you may purchase as many Follow Ups as you may want!
What this service is NOT/what it’s not so good for:
— It’s not a full service, in-depth rewrite
— It’s not a coaching or Q & A service
— It’s not great if you need a major overhaul to a messy resume, a very very outdated resume or resume more than 2-3 pages
— It’s not meant to help you ‘rebrand’ completely into a new career or field of focus using your transferable skills
–(NOTE:  please do ask me, though, if you need a more in-depth, total overhaul type rewrite. I’ll be doing a very limited amount of these, and, working with a contractor to work with and write for those clients)
Investment:  $50-100 initial Resume Review & Edit  (I will quote you based on your draft resume it isn’t “as is” current form); Follow Up Reviews/Edit $25.
Timeframe:  48 business hour turnaround

Job Search Support – Q & A: 

Quick & easy SUPPORT to answer those pesky, confusing, anxiety provoking interview or job search related questions!

THIS IS FOR YOU IF: you don’t want to invest $80-100 for an hour coaching call, but you have a few questions you’d LOVE some EXPERT input about!

 Hire your own personal resume writing and interview skills coach for 1, 3, or 5 questions at a time, rather than the standard $80-100+/hour coaching call!

Perfect for that nagging question you just wish you could ask an expert even though overall, you feel confident about the rest of your (resume, interview savvy, etc.) on your own.

A few examples:
Q – How do I address a job gap on my resume?
Q – How can I include unpaid work/gigs on my resume (like stuff I did for family & friends that is relevant to the work I want to do)?
Q – I never know what to say to the “What is your greatest weakness?” question – help! What should I say?? (or, fill in the blank with the question(s) that trip YOU up – every time!)

Or ANY question YOU may have on these topics!

Questions and answers will all asked and answered in email, only.

TIPS:  be concise in your question, without leaving out vital information that might influence my best answer for YOU; it helps to send your resume with your question most of the time. Ideally, each question is limited to about 3 lines max.

Investment:  1 Q & A: $10; 3 Q & A at a time: $25; 5 Q & A:  $35

Timeframe: I aim for 24 hour (same day when possible!)replies, but, depending on timing/schedules, may take up to 48 hours (excluding Sat/Sun)
