      Résumé Writing

      You worked hard to get where you are; let your résumé show that. I will help you write or proofread your résumé to ensure it highlights your strengths.

      Résumé Writing & Editing

      I’ll work with you to create the following sections on your résumé:

      The names or order of these sections might change to best highlight your career progression and accomplishments.

      Résumé Editing

      Putting Your Best Foot Forward

      Like a proposal, a résumé needs to persuade your (hopefully) future employer. Working together, we can figure out exactly what that employer wants to hear, and showcase how your experiences make you a perfect fit. We’ll make sure your résumé contains a beautiful and consistent layout, a careful organization, and no errors. We’ll also make sure you use words that make you sound like the powerful, competent businessperson you are.

      Gather Information

      Let’s have a bragging session! Tell me all the relevant info about your job history, education, volunteer experience, skills, hobbies, and ideal position.

      Pick a Format

      Whether you want to feature your education or career progression,  we’ll work together to choose a format that best highlights your accomplishments.

      Draft & Re-Draft

      I want my language to impress you, me, and your future employer. To do this, I’ll present up to three drafts of your résumé for your review.

      You Get Hired!

      While I can’t guarantee that your resume will land you a job, I will work with you to change the language or layout until it sticks.

      F.A.Q.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Which do I need – a résumé or a CV?

      In the United States, you need a CV (curriculum vitae) if you are in a scientific or academic career and have many publications, projects, grants, and awards. Most people in the US use a résumé.

      However, outside the US, a CV is the standard term for both sorts of employment documents. I can work with you on either kind of document.

      What background information do you need to complete my résumé?

      Great question! I will need to know:

      • Your name and contact details
      • Your educational background (including any awards or honors within your degree program, if applicable)
      • Your relevant job experience (including dates, job title(s), and duties performed)
      • Your skills (rated on a 1-5 scale of proficiency), and
      • Any noteworthy hobbies or volunteer experiences you think might help you in your career.
      Should I provide references on my résumé?

      No. Each job you apply for has a different requirement for the number and types of references; some may not require any references.

      In addition, the phrase “references available upon request”, while commonly found on resume templates, only takes up space on your resume; employers assume that you will provide references if they request them.

      Can you guarantee that I will find a job if you help me write or edit my résumé?

      There are so many factors that go into finding a job; I couldn’t possibly account for them all! However, if your resume doesn’t seem to be working for you, I’m happy to work with you on future edits for layout or language until it does.
