Resume Services

Resumes • Cover Letters • Thank You Letters • Interview Coaching

When looking for a job, you want to present yourself in the best possible way. I will create a professional resume that will accentuate your strengths and accomplishments. I will use techniques that will make your potential employer want to invite you to an interview. 

Remember that the purpose of a resume is to get you a job interview.

I will build your resume from scratch or update your current resume.

  • Do it Yourself?

    You might ask, "Why should I have someone else do my resume?" Most people find it awkward tooting their own horns. They are uncomfortable expressing their accomplishments and feel that they are bragging when writing about themselves. One of my clients, after reviewing the resume that I had prepared for her said, "That is me exactly. I did not realize that I had all those qualities until you pointed them out in such a professional manner. I could not even begin to create a resume by myself." I can do this for you by examining your attributes and accomplishments and incorporating them into a resume that puts you in the best possible light. 

  • Job Posting or Want Ad

    If you have a job posting or a want ad for a position you are seeking, please forward it to me. I can take an objective view of you and of the ad and try to blend them. By this, I mean that I will examine the job requirements as stated in the posting or ad and then try to find the qualities that you possess and match them.  Most people have trouble seeing the relationship between their strengths or accomplishments in previous jobs and the requirements or skills needed in the job they are seeking.  I can work with you to make your resume feature and showcase these unique qualities that will help you be chosen as a candidate for an interview. 

  • Resume Worksheet

    If you do not have a current resume, fill out the resume worksheet completely and send it to me as an attachment. If you have a resume that includes this information, send that instead of the worksheet. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this procedure. 

  • Fees

    Fees for the resume services vary depending upon how much time and work is needed. Generally the fee for a complete new resume is USD 150. For a CV or more complex resume, the fee is USD 175. After receiving your worksheet and any other supporting documentation, I will be able to quote a price for resume services. The fee for a cover letter ranges from USD 40 to USD 50.

  • Honesty

    Every word of your resume must contain honest information. Make sure that your dates and position titles are correct and that your descriptions of your work and your accomplishments are true in every way. This is imperative. I will take this information, word it and format the resume in a way that will make it strong and effective.

  • Existing Resume

    If you are currently using a resume or have an old one that is outdated, send it to me so we have a starting point. I will refine it and make it outstanding.

  • Payment

    PayPal is the preferred payment method. Visit the Payment Information page for other payment options.

  • Cover Letters

    It is necessary to send a cover letter whenever you send out your resume. I can help draft a cover letter that will be a template for what you send to the potential employer. I do not believe in sending out the same cover letter to every potential employer. You must make sure that the cover letter is modified to address the specific job being sought and the job requirements stated in the job description. This resume services can assist you in this process.

  • Interview Coaching

    After providing interview coaching services to several clients requesting this service, I have begun to offer this as a regular service. We will need to conduct these interview coaching sessions on the telephone. If you have a Skype account, we can talk via Skype. Otherwise, we will talk by telephone. Contact me for procedures and fees for this new service.  

  • Thank You Letters

    This is essential. After an interview, you must send a thank you letter to the potential employer. This can be a simple letter but it should contain some important elements. The thank you letter is just another element in the services included in this resume services.

  • Resume Service Procedures

    You will need to play a very active role in the resume creation procedure. The resume must reflect you and your accomplishments. I can assist you to make this the best possible presentation. But, you must help to furnish all the necessary information.

  • Completed Resumes

    The final resume will be sent to you via email. You will then be able to print this out on your choice of paper. You will also be able to take it to a professional printer to print it on the paper of your choice.

  • Resume Challenges

    • Gaps in your employment - This is a concern to many job seekers. But, it need not be a problem in your job search. I will work with you to document this gap in a way that does not detract from your qualifications and job history. There are techniques that can be used with this resume service that will assist in this challenge.
    • Unrelated jobs in your past - Many people feel that past work that does not relate to the job they are seeking may cause a problem on a resume. I can use this to your advantage with some resume service techniques. Each situation is unique but I will work with you to solve this dilemma.
