Resumes and LinkedIn

As an experienced, certified resume writer, resume coach and LinkedIn expert, I can help you make the best possible impression. If your written materials aren’t getting the results you want, please contact me for a free consultation.

There’s a lot you need your resume and your LinkedIn profile to accomplish. To get results, it must:

  • Communicate your unique value proposition–your personal brand–within 20-30 seconds.
  • Show not just what you’ve done, but how well you’ve done it. (This is essential!)
  • Stand out among hundreds of other resumes or profiles–for the right reasons.
  • Be free of clichés, unproven claims, excessive superlatives, and other “pet peeves” of HR and hiring managers.
  • Contain the right key words, both for the human eye and electronic searches.
  • Convey credibility and professionalism without being boring.
  • Be flawless, with no typos or errors.
  • Minimize anything that might count against you, such as an unconventional work history, lack of experience, gaps, mature age, etc.
  • Get you invited to interviews.

Crafting effective career marketing materials isn’t easy. Let me help.

I enjoy getting to know you, applying my strategic problem-solving and writing skills, and getting emails that say “I love it! It’s getting interviews!” That’s what I strive for with every project.

Need a persuasive letter? I apply the same care and skill in working with you to create impressive cover letters, letters of introduction and thank-you letters.

Document Review and Coaching – Resumes and LinkedIn Profiles:

The most affordable (and often the fastest) way to work with me for great job search communications is through document review and coaching. I will give you specific, customized guidance as you transform your resume or LinkedIn profile. I can then provide light editing and simple formatting to polish your final draft.

This do-it-yourself approach is a good plan if you have time, motivation and above-average writing skills. (If you don’t, please see “Writing Services,” below.) . The packages are as follows:

     Basic Resume Review – $80 ($95 value, save $15)–or $40 with any Interview Coaching package

  • 30-minute phone consultation
  • Free copy of my Resume Resources or LinkedIn Resources    

     Closer Look – $375 ($415 value, save $40)

  • Personalized written recommendations, based on review of your existing draft and two job postings you select, telling you how to improve your resume or profile to better support your career goals (1.5 hr.)
  • Up to 1 hour of the following as you rewrite your document: Q&A, review of drafts or light editing
  • Free copy of my Resume Resources or LinkedIn Resources 

     One-Week Coach-and-Edit – $595 ($655 value, save $60)

  • Everything in the Closer Look package above, PLUS:
  • After you revise your draft, a 1.5-hr. edit of the revised draft within 2 business days of my receiving it

Note: Your revised draft must be received within 5 days after I provide your written recommendations, so please schedule this project during a week when you have enough time to do your revision. 

Document Review and Coaching – Cover Letters:

For cover letters I offer the same three packages as for resumes and profiles, but the price for the Closer Look (Cover Letter) is only $195 and the One-Week Coach-and-Edit (Cover Letter) is $295. A Basic Cover Letter Review is $80.

Writing Services:

I have limited availability for resume, LinkedIn profile and cover letter writing. When available, this process generally begins with an in-depth meeting in which I gather information about your experience and skills.

Your investment depends on the complexity of the project. Resumes and LinkedIn profiles may cost anywhere from $485 (recent graduate with little/no experience) to $800+ (executives and some technical professionals). Adding a second item such as a LinkedIn profile or cover letter typically costs about half the price of the first project. Please contact me for a personalized quote.

Ready to move forward? Or still have questions? Either way, contact me and let’s discuss how I can help you get a great job sooner with career marketing documents that work.
