Resumes and LinkedIn

As an experienced, certified resume writer/coach and LinkedIn expert, I can help you make the best possible impression through the written materials that introduce you.

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

  • Stand out among hundreds of other resumes or profiles – whether scanned by a human eye or electronically.
  • Grab the attention of a busy decision-maker.
  • 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!)
  • Be free of clichés, unproven claims, excessive superlatives, and other “pet peeves” of HR and hiring managers.
  • Contain the right key words.
  • Convey credibility and professionalism without being boring.
  • Be flawless, with no typos or errors.
  • Maximize your strengths and minimize anything that might count against you – e.g. zigzags in work history, gaps in experience, mature age, etc.
  • Convince employers to reach out to you.

It isn’t easy, but it’s my specialty.

I work with you to craft resumes, profiles and bios that accomplish these goals and get results: interviews that lead to your new job.

I enjoy the creative challenge, getting to know you, and getting emails that say “I love it!” That’s what I strive for.

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.

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 above-average writing skills. If you’re not sure which option is best for you, please contact me for a free consultation.

Document review/coaching packages:

     Quick Look Session – $80 ($95 value)

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

     Closer Look – $195 ($255 value)

  • 30-minute review of your existing resume/draft and two job postings you select
  • 30-minute personal branding consultation via phone or Skype
  • Written recommendations, based on my review of your documents, for how to take your resume to the next level
  • Free copy of my Resume Resources or LinkedIn Resources 
  • 30 minutes of phone and/or email support

     One-Week Coach-and-Edit – $350 ($415 value)

  • Everything in the Closer Look package above, PLUS:
  • 1.5-hr. edit of your (one) 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.


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. Resumes and LinkedIn profiles may cost anywhere from $450 (recent graduate) to $800+ for the resume itself. Cover letters are typically about half the cost of a resume or profile. Second and third documents typically cost less than the first document I write for you. Please contact me for a quote.


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.
