Resume Creation & Consultation

After getting feedback from some in the Clubhouse forum, I've decided to make a dedicated thread here. I'll only give it the occasional bump (likely once a month) so as not to demote other listings. The service is available to members and their family members, friends, and colleagues.

I'm a Lead Technical Writer and Editor with over 10 years of service for a local Fortune 200 Company. I regularly review resumes for candidates with our department. I also participate in resume workshops and one-on-one reviews for local college students. Since 2017, I’ve created 15 resumes for clients. I truly enjoy the work, as I’m passionate about quality technical writing, editing, and people. The process is convenient and efficient, as it's conducted exclusively online.

I offer an affordable rate that is competitive, so you won't break the bank while preparing to progress your career.

If you'd like to discuss the creation of a new resume or you want to update your current one to better suit your skill set, feel free to send me a message so I can provide you with more details.

Thanks!

    Great idea, John! Good luck to you on this very worthwhile endeavor. For what it's worth, I quickly noticed that you're one of the Club Polk regulars with an excellent command of the English language - proper spelling, syntax, thought conveyance, etc. I hope you get some interest generated here for your services.

    Excellent! I’ll keep this in mind. I haven’t updated my resume in a couple of years and I know one should keep it current.
    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same.

    Congrats to her! As an advisory board member for a department at my alma mater, one of my passions is helping students make the transition from college to career.

    What a cool service. Resumes can be hard to get right but easy to screw up. I help friends and family with theirs, as well as application letters. Good luck with the biz. Looks like you're getting quite a nice inflow of work.

    I think I've used my resume (which is in the form of a CV-- an academic affectation :p ) more since I started my little consulting LLC than I ever did when I was workin' for the Man.

    I really probably should have you work on mine sometime, come to think of it!

    As a fellow academic married to a business woman that does quite a bit of hiring (and some firing unfortunately), I can testify that a CV is a NO NO in the business world.

    Please help dr. Hardy, John, before it’s too late!!!

    Indeed, what a boost for business it would be if he could actually say he was able to help a Polkie with his resume! ;)

    In all seriousness, I will actively seek out this thread at the end of the year, as my daughter will be graduating and beginning an active job search. In a very competitive field, no less.

    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    I’ve had the privilege of three, in fact! Two for Polkies and one for a spouse!

    Several of you have mentioned that you’ve college student-aged children. With that, I’m happy to announce I’m now offering discounts to current college students!

    Current students are eligible for a 10% discount on any of my services (midtownresumes.com/services).

    I believe in higher education and the benefits that it offers to students, and I want to ensure they’re prepared to impress a potential employer. A great resume isn’t only required for those seeking a post-graduation career, but also for current students seeking an internship.

    JMD @ Midtown Resumes recently offered to take a look at my resume and give a quick look, after I made the forum post that I had been laid off.

    I happily accepted his offer and I was impressed with his service.

    Even though he only performed a quick once over, there were a bevy of different comments and suggestions on possible improvements. A lot of them were the "*smack your forehead* Why didn't I think of that?" type of things. Perfect! That little extra polish or a little tweak to the overall fit and finish. A way to reword things that added that additional impact to set your resume apart.

    Clearly he's experienced with several different resume styles as well as the best way to word things and present yourself to look strong in your particular field/profession.

    Thanks again @John Megadeth!
