Resumes


What does your personal brand say about you?

Recruiters and hiring managers use your resume to judge your competence. You need to communicate a strong personal brand in six seconds. Your brand should say, “I’m detail oriented,” “I’m current,” “hire me!” If you’ve never had a professional copywriter work on your resume, do you know what message you’re communicating?

Invest in your future earning potential

When your resume works great, you find great work.
And when your resume doesn’t work—you don’t work.

Your resume is the most financially important document you will ever own. When your resume works great, you find great work. And when your resume doesn’t work—you don’t work. You could leave your financial stability to chance, by trying a resume template or one of those template-based resume mills, or you could trust someone who knows what they’re doing. (You wouldn’t try to install your own pool or perform your own oral surgery, right?) A professionally prepared resume is an investment in your future livelihood—it can open doors to more and better job opportunities, in less time, and with potentially higher earnings.

“I am a working professional with an education in a management job. I needed help with my resume for a promotional opportunity, and Jocelyn with Fuzzy Red Pen came highly recommended. I didn’t realize how much revamping my resume needed until she reviewed it. She took my cookie-cutter resume and made it relevant. Jocelyn was prompt, willing to listen, and communicated in such a friendly manner. Needless to say, I got the job—and was told my resume rocked!”

–C. Cordon, Municipal Government Senior Official

Pricing

I believe in salary transparency. When the value you place on submitting a quality, professionally prepared resume matches the hours I devote to customizing every word, everyone is happy! And every resume is different. That’s why I’ll give you a custom quote, and I’ll never sell you more than you need. But here’s what you might expect:

Entry Level Resume (Beginner)

Entry Level Resume (Beginner)

0-2 years of professional experience

$100 to $200

Professional Resume (Intermediate)

Professional Resume (Intermediate)

3 or more years of non-supervisory professional experience

$225 to $325

Management Resume (Advanced)

Management Resume (Advanced)

Managers, supervisors, and team leaders

$275 to $375

Executive Resume (Expert)

Executive Resume (Expert)

Directors, senior leaders, and C-suite executives

$450 to $550

Technical Resume (Wizard)

Technical Resume (Wizard)

Engineers and information technology professionals

$300 to $400

 

Now before you run off to write your resume yourself (please don’t), I know money gets tight, and I know that looks like a lot of money up front. But a professionally prepared resume is a long-term marketing investment that can earn you money by landing your next great position faster. And once you get that job, your resume will pay for itself in two or three days.

$125,000 $481
$150,000 $577
$175,000 $673
$200,000 $769

Again, these are very rough estimates; I’ll give you a custom quote, and I’ll never sell you more than you need. Is a few days’ wages worth an investment in your future?
