cover letters. Everybody needs them—and everybody hates to
Well, almost everybody.
Actually, we love to write résumés and
cover letters! We've been doing it for over 20 years. It
is our joy to help you by taking anything from "pretty good
but could be better with a little tweaking" to a jumbled
mess of rough notes—and turning it into a one- or two-page
marketing document that highlights your strengths,
minimizes your weaknesses, and points your career in the
direction you'd like to go. Then we accompany it with a
brief cover letter, focused specifically on the exact job
you're trying for. Our cover letters are designed to
open the door to interviews.
We strive to prepare the best
personal marketing documents, including
résumés, cover letters, and other materials,
to help you get interviews for the exact types of jobs you
are looking for.
Since every human being is
different, with different experience, strengths, likes and
dislikes, and desires, every résumé we write
is unique. You and a co-worker who does the same job as you
could each approach us for a résumé, and the
résumés would be different, because your life
history and your career path will be different.
We also believe everyone can
afford a professional résumé. We see no reason
to jack our prices so high it dents your paycheck. We keep
our expenses low and pass the savings on to you. Many of our
competitors charge three, five, or ten times as much as we
do—but because our process is better and we're not greedy,
we're content to charge a fair but not outrageous

I got a job as an interior design and art assistant for a property management firm in NYC, and I can't tell you how psyched I am. Most importantly, during my search a recruiter once told me that he had never seen a resume such as mine (despite seeing 300 resumes per day) in which there existed not one thing he felt he needed to change... so thanks for helping me build what he described as a "flawless" resume! Hope all is well with you and yours.

Why a Résumé Must be a
When you apply for a job,
your résumé and cover letter are the
employer's first introduction to you. If they don't catch
the reader's interest, you'll never get a shot at impressing
the employer any other way.
An employer may receive
hundreds of résumés for a good job opening.
When they're flipping through a three-inch stack of
résumés, they'll be looking for reasons to say
no. Your résumé has only a few seconds to do
its job: to pull the reader in with a concise, well-written,
grammatical summary of your strengths, accomplishments,
reliability, and your "rightness" for the job. A simple
chronological presentation of your history, warts and all,
isn't going to do the trick. Plodding language, the wrong
format, leaving out key information—or including the wrong
information—will all get you moved to the "no, but thanks
anyway" pile. But if a résumé professional
creates your résumé, the presentation will be

"slush pile" and be put in the much smaller "read carefully

Good Morning Shel,
Just to let you know. It's only been a couple of days, but the new resume has already provided more response than the old one ever did.
The response keeps coming in. Had a phone interview yesterday for a position in Atlanta that I'm well qualified for.
I cannot begin to thank you enough.

In short, a
résumé has to be a marketing document. That's
why we've been hired by several professional
journalists—people who are extremely computer-literate and
good with words—to write their résumés. We've
also created résumés for teachers, nurses,
students, retail managers, executive vice presidents,
computer wizards, office workers, and everyone else you can

Though I've helped many people compose their own résumés, never have I accomplished the task so easily and with such concentrated speed. Equally important, of course, was the tremendous ego lift your work has provided for me. I have a résumé I can present with dignity, and for this I am very grateful.
