Frequently Asked Questions


How did you start writing resumes for other people?

For years I have been helping friends, co-workers and people they know with their resumes. As someone who has been a supervisor, I have seen many resumes come across my desk, and I quickly developed a good understanding of which formats work and which ones don't. More importantly, I've seen a lot of the mistakes people commonly make in composing their resumes.

The thing is, most people don't really develop a skill for writing resumes Why should they? It's something you might need once every five years if things are going well.

Several years ago, a good friend of mine asked me to help her with her resume. I realized that I couldn't essentially change the whole thing without hurting her feelings, so I took the time to explain each and every change I made. In the process, I realized that I can use what I have learned over the years to help people in this tough economy.

Do you have an office?

I provide affordable resumes for working people, and I do this by eliminating unnecessary expenses. I don't have an office or a secretary like companies which charge you $300.00 or more for a resume. You really only want to pay for the writing, and that's all I charge you for.

Can You Send Me a Sample Resume So I Can See What Your Work Look Like?

Short answer, No.

Long answer, There are two reasons I don't do this. The first is that any information that was given to me to compose a resume was given with an expectation of confidentiality. The second is that people want to see what works in a resume, but no two resumes are really alike. What worked well for a customer service representative with five years of experience won't work for a IT programmer with ten years. 

The resume should be customized to both the applicant and the kinds of jobs he or she is looking for.

Well, first and foremost, thank you for your service.  

Secondly,  Yes, having served myself, I know that frequently, putting military service in terms that civilian employers can understand is a major challenge, one that I am happy to meet.  

I am able to translate your MOS into its civilian equivalent and emphasize your qualities while also calling attention to the sacrifices you’ve made for our country.
