Résumés and Cover Letters

Résumés

If your résumé needs a makeover, I’ve got you covered. I’ve been editing résumés for over six years, and I’ve found there are two main factors that make a résumé successful: aesthetics and persuasive language.

I know how to sell your skills and make them look attractive on a page. Half the battle is getting your résumé noticed! To revitalize your résumé, I’ll update its design, proofread it for spelling and grammar errors, and tweak the language to make it powerful and persuasive. After all, your résumé is an advertisement for you!

Here are a few examples from my portfolio. Certain information has been censored for my clients’ privacy.

Cover Letters

A cover letter can sometimes be your only chance to speak your mind when applying for a job, so you need to be sure you’re presenting the best possible version of yourself. In my opinion, writing a letter is a lost art. You can’t write a cover letter like an email.

Your letter has to be to-the-point and follow the correct form. If it’s too long, it will get skimmed. If it’s riddled with spelling mistakes, it will get tossed aside. If it comes across as too desperate, too arrogant, or too timid, it will end up at the bottom of the stack.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed while writing your cover letter or you need a second set of eyes, I’d be glad to help you. Contact me here.
