You absolutely need to shine brighter than your competition in today’s job market. The best way to do that is to start with the basics: flawless submitted materials.
Your cover letter is not a formality. You have the chance either to impress hiring managers with your attention to detail and understanding of their needs or to create an impression of carelessness. Why on earth would you send anything but the best representation of your qualifications and suitability for the position you seek?
The same care should be taken with your résumé. In fact, since you arguably only need to create two or three different versions, your résumé should be the cleanest document in your career toolkit.
Upload your document (either a Word document or PDF) prior to the Checkout screen and let us know in your ordering note when you need the work completed. If we are unable to perform the copyediting service within the timeframe you require, we will refund your payment immediately.
Spell check isn’t even half the battle here (though managers have told me they discard résumés and letters containing even one misspelling). Incorrect punctuation, poor word choice, and lack of focus can doom your submission to the “maybe” pile…or worse.
This is your paycheck we’re talking about. Don’t take risks just because you’re in a hurry or because you’ve read these documents over so many times you can’t even see them clearly anymore.
Have a pro thoroughly review and copyedit your submitted materials to weed out mistakes and improve your chances of projecting an image of the desirable, quality-minded, conscientious candidate for the position you (and hundreds of others) are vying for.
Starting at $20 per page (maximum of 500 words per page), professional copyediting of your materials is a sound investment in your career’s future. More in-depth assistance is also available—contact us for details.
