What Sets me Apart
from Other Professional Resume Writers?
(other than I built this super fancy website myself. okay maybe not super fancy, but it gets my point across)
1) I have over 30 years experience as an HR executive, and I know what it takes to get your resume noticed.
2) I don't just write resumes, I help my clients get jobs. I will conduct a FREE federal job search for you - and can usually find 2-3 jobs per client that are a good fit.
3) I work alone, answer my own phone and email (promptly), so you will communicate with me directly and receive individualized service. I often communicate up to about 10pm.
4) I work with you to make sure we find the right job fit so that your new resume truly has a good chance of getting you the job you really want.
5) I get amazing feedback (some of which is included at the bottom of this page), which is why I love what I do -
6) My prices are very reasonable. There's a very popular (and probably very rich) resume writer on LinkedIn that charges $1500. Be careful - you don't always get what you paid for.
My services and fees are outlined on the JMAS Fee Schedule tab at the top left of this page. I don't charge over $299 for any resume, and much less if they aren't customized.
7) I love helping my clients get the jobs they want, and I'm good at what I do. I know not only the federal world I know HR and staffing. I know what HR needs to see in order to move your resume forward to the Hiring Official for an interview.
I keep it simple
Here's how I provide services:
Step 1 - You email your current resume (and the job announcement of the job you want, if you have found one) to me at JMAdvisorySvcs@gmail.com.
Step 2 - I will review your resume against the job qualification requirements to make sure it's a good fit. If it isn't, I will run a free federal job search for you, or guide you on the type of job for which you would qualify in the private sector.
You're on your own for finding a job in private sector (but I can still develop a customized resume for you).
Step 3 - Once we find a good job fit, I will customize your resume to address all of the qualification requirements.
A professionally written resume that is CUSTOMIZED to the job you want can greatly increase your chances of landing your dream job.
So don't just hire a resume writer, hire a former senior HR Executive that knows the ropes. I don't just write a resume for you, I truly help you get the job you want!
Have you tried USAJobs.gov lately?
The federal application system (USAJobs.gov) is BROKEN. OPM keeps trying to improve it, but it doesn't ever seem to help. The search function is horrible, the layout of the announcements are confusing and vary greatly among the many different federal agencies. Frankly, the entire process is complex and overly time consuming.
The good news is that I can develop a resume for you that addresses ALL of the federal job requirements, as required:
- Minimum qualification requirements
- Rating factors
- Questionnaire responses
This is what it takes to get your resume through the HR review process and to the Hiring Official for consideration.
Let's do this!
Email your current resume and the link OR the control number of the vacancy announcement for the position you want from usajobs.gov to
Want to know what my clients think of me? I do NOT ask for feedback - never have and never will - but I get it anyway...and it warms my heart every single time. :)
