She was patient and very easy to work with. I would defiantly hire her again for any type of writing project and would highly recommend her as an editor. Kyra did a phenomenal job! I had lost my digital copy of my resume, and all I had left were several old versions in hard copy. As if that isn't bad enough, they were more than 10 years out of date!
Kyra compiled all of the information, updated it to current, and gave my resume a very professional look. It is with genuine enthusiasm that I recommend Lynn Murphy as a writer, editor, and editorial project manager. Lynn is exceptionally smart and strategic, quickly grasping all relevant data and key points of emphasis, and then communicates in clear and concise prose to suit any business project. At the same time, she has a woman's keen intuition and insight that make her equally well suited for more sensitive subjects and assignments.
Lynn also has an editor's eye for great versus more common writing, whether on more complicated subjects or with the simple turn of a phrase that results in the most compelling communication. Net, she can write for you or make your writing better. Importantly, Lynn has invaluable experience in the high-octane world of Hollywood television and film.
She brings fire-hardened skills in working successfully under pressure and in a more visible environment with lofty expectations. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, Lynn is a wonderful colleague and teammate. She's punctual, delivers her work on time and on the mark, and always delights with the outcome. She is truly a pleasure with whom to work, and I recommend her most highly.
Nichole not only completed my resume prior to her deadline, she customized it beyond my expectation. I have been writing resumes for years and having Nichole in my corner gives me the comfort of knowing that I will never have to write one again. I had the pleasure to have Barbara Molloy help me with my resume. She was extremely helpful with her assistance and very professional with her editing and explanations when helping me.
She is very knowledgeable in grammar and many types of writing styles for books, school work, resumes and editing. I would be happy to recommend Barbara Molloy, she has a great sense of humor also! I appreciate her knowledge and help! Editing is not an easy job; one must be a reader, counselor, critic, teacher, and at the same time; supportive, challenging, and encouraging when bringing the best out of a writer's work. Ms Daniel does it all, effortlessly. She has edited several of my short stories and has not just improved the quality of each one, she has sharpened my skills as a writer.
I could not ask for more. Fran did an outstanding job in creating my resume and cover letter. She is very professional to work with and is highly detail oriented. Fran took my so so resume and turned it into outstanding. Working behind the scenes to set you up for interviewing success is our 1 goal. Integrate your story highlighting your best resume successes.

I know what works, what is current, relevant, and appreciated by the hiring teams. I don't say this simply because I offer resume writing services but because my years in HR and recruiting have made it very clear that most people are not objective enough to present themselves in the most favorable way. I really believe that crafting a resume is a completely different skill than "being a great writer.
A good resume writer will not create a document that is their "conception" of you. Anyone worth the money will take an individualized approach; working with you to uncover talents, skills and competencies that you may not even be aware you posses. A professional resume writer will take the time to make certain the resume is an accurate depiction of you and also make certain that the final product is one to which you can speak.
For a resume, especially today - in these times, you do NOT have the luxury or time to WASTE trying to put an amazing, jaw-dropping, goosebump-inflicting professional profile together yourself, do you? If the first one you "write" doesn't get a response, will you then redesign it and send it back to the SAME potential employer who originally ignored you?
How long will you keep doing that and passing up all those family gatherings until you decide that hiring a professional to help you is the only choice? Bean counter in San Jose, California said: Can't believe one cannot write a decent resume himself, who knows better than yourself of what you actually do in your job?
I don't know why the "you have to do it yourself" attitude persists when it comes to writing your resume. It's essentially like saying you should do your own taxes because nobody knows your finances better than you.
For people who are comfortable writing their own resume — and can produce an outstanding one — fantastic. For those whose strengths lie elsewhere, there is no reason not to hire a professional.
In fact, I would say that recognizing where you can benefit from others' expertise is a far more valauble skill than being able to write your own resume. You are correct that one needs to take automated screening systems into account. However, while cutting and pasting pieces of a job description may get your resume through the automated scanning process, but what happens when you resume is in the hands of a human?
Is that person going to be engaged and compelled to move based on a resume that parrots their company's job description? Again, if you can create an accomplishment focused resume that clearly highlights your impact, do it. But there is no shame if you need to partner with someone to identify your strengths, uncover your acomplishments and present that info in the best light possible. Jenab, do you know if there is anyway we can private message on here? I'm fairly new to this forum, but I'd definitely like to chat with you guys.
JD I would love to make contact, just not sure how to do it! Let me know and I will get in touch! I don't think there is at this time, at least not that I can see. But I've noticed that some people like me have their screen name linking back to a profile, so I'm wondering if that may change in the future.
You might want to go to www. If enough people are asking for it they may add that feature. I know just a couple weeks ago I couldn't see my own comments in one place and made a suggestion and now I can it may be they were planning on that, but it was great to be able to see that now.
JD in Yerington, Nevada. And by the by, for anyone who may be wondering, I'm not trying to spam, and I'm not selling anything - just a guy who wants to help, no strings attached. JD in Yerington, Nevada said: They haven't removed my post to Erik on page 1 yet; my e-mail is there. I don't think anyone in this particular discussion is trying to spam; just the opposite.
I think several people have been caught up in trying to be helpful. Since so many people were including their emails I wanted to make sure everyone was aware in case the comments disappeared. It seems to take a a few days for non-flagged comments to disappear if there are links or email addresses. I don't think Indeed has the no-contact information in forum comments rule just to curb ads, but to protect privacy, as it can be seen by anyone looking at the forums.
HR Uncovered in Seattle, Washington said: And in a less obvious way, it helps you validate what's on your resume for each position you submit it to; you can tie in your best relevant CAR or STAR stories.
Burnt Toast in Champaign, Illinois said: It helped me let go of an old resume that I had grown emotionally attached to. It took me 6 months to finally get around to overhauling my own resume, and it looks so much better. I keep a master doc of all my experience and other info useful for applications.
It made it easier to let go of certain things in the resume itself, especially knowing if it was relevant I could easily switch it out and not have to recreate it from memory. Because no one knows your experience better than you do, and a standard resume is not complex. Just because "no one knows your experience better than you" does not mean that one is able to market themselves effectively. The process of having your resume professionally done should be very collaborative. As a professional resume writer and HR consultant , I can assert that a true professional will take his or her time to build a comprehensive understanding of your background and motivations, as well as help you uncover strengths and achievements.
They then use the information they have gathered and their expertise in the job search process automated resume screeners, HRIS , etc. Like I said before, if you are confident that you can create an outstanding resume, that is wonderful.
But many people find it very difficult to see themselves objectively and market themselves effectively. That is why it can be extremely smart investment to employ a professional resume writer.
JD in Fernley, Nevada. HR Uncovered, I can certainly see your point; some people aren't comfotable or able to market themselves, andin that case, a "pro from Dover" may be a good idea. If I gave the impression in any of my posts that prfessional resume writers should never be used, I apologize; that was never my point.
I just see may people who go instantly to a pro and assume that they're going to make the best resume in the world - which is not always the case. If one is wanting a resume, I believe they should first consider whether they can make a good one on their own first: If that individual doesn't think they can do a good job after researching resume writing, then by all means use a pro if it's affordable.
And you're right in another area as well - if a pro is called upon, it should be a collaboration, not just a "give me your work history and I'll tell you when it's done. JD in Fernley, Nevada said: HR Uncovered, I can certainly see your point And I have to put an exclamation point behind "do your research!
There is little value in that. And while affordable is likely important to many, I would caution people from simply evaluating professionals on price. I agree, to a point - sometimes, all a resume needs is a little reformat to change it from decent to great, especially for electronic submissions. BUT, in my opinion, if that's all a pro is seeing wrong with an existing resume, then they should be upfront and say so, either showing the individual the needed changes or charging a reduced amount or doing it for free.
In any case, with it being a collaboration, the writer should be honest and explain what they're doing and why, whether it's a simple reformat or a complete overhaul. Jacalyn in Mumbai, India.
I paid for CV Writing from a company called dubai-forever. They specialize in customizing International resumes according to Middle East standards.
I received personal attention too, as they are a small firm. Linda in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Maybe coincidence, but i dont think so.
She's affordable and fast, and did a great job. I am getting interviews about to go on a second interview!! I used a service and have been very pleased.
I'm sure it depends on your background and the writer. There's good resume services and bad ones out there Stillsmiling in Saint Marys, Georgia said: I have no idea why someone would pay to have a resume written for them. With all the ones you can find online Very easy to do. If you aren't sure how to use those key words, read someone elses resume that has a job or some from online. They give pretty good examples of what to do.
