Resume, LinkedIn and Cover Letter Review/Coaching:

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, profile and/or cover letter. 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 average/above-average writing skills. If you’re not sure which option is best for you, please contact me for a free consultation to help you decide.

Writing:

I have limited availability for resume, LinkedIn profile and cover letter writing. When available, this process begins with an in-depth interview. The cost depends on the complexity of the project and may be anywhere from $450 (recent graduate) to $1,000+ for the resume itself. LinkedIn profiles and cover letters can be added for an additional (generally smaller) price. Please contact me for a quote.

Payment:

Payment is accepted via cash, check, major credit card or Paypal before service is rendered.

Money-saving tip: You may be able to take a tax deduction for these fees. Please see IRS Publication 529 and/or consult your tax professional.
