Resume Writing: A professionally written resume can make you stand out in the crowded pool of applicants. Today, a resume has to do more than summarize your work history. It needs to present a picture of you, selling your talents, skills, and personality in a way that makes potential employers want to schedule an interview. Fees vary, but typical rates are $160-$215 for revision of an existing resume and $230-$275 for the creation of a resume from scratch.
Combine your new resume with my custom cover letter and LinkedIn profile writing services for maximum results. Cover letters start at $55 per letter; LinkedIn profiles start at $75.
