Resume Writing & Design

resume writingFinding a new job is a full-time job in and of itself. The whole process can be stressful and time consuming. And since we do it so infrequently in a lifetime, we can be at a loss as to what steps to take in the process. One important component of the job-search process is an excellent resume. If you don’t have an interview-getting resume on your computer, it’s time to hire a professional resume writing service.

Since 1996, The Grammar Doctors’ writers have been creating resumes that get results. We are passionate about helping our clients discover and share their talents, experience, and accomplishments in a way that secures interviews. Plus, we provide coaching that ensures they know exactly what to do when they get to the interview—so they can find a new job quickly.

Resume Writing: How It Works

Most of us didn’t learn how to create a great resume in college or throughout our careers, and we understand that the thought of tackling such a task can be daunting. Through your interactions with The Grammar Doctors, this resume writing process will be broken down into its core components to quickly get to the heart of not only what you want but how we can help you achieve it.

We have two different ways in which we acquire the information we need from you: either through a worksheet that you fill out or a consultative approach. The vast majority of our clients choose the latter option, which pairs you with a professional resume writer to guide you through the process in a two-hour conversation. We work with clients around the globe, so no matter where you are, our Phoenix resume writers are able to help you create an interview-getting marketing document.

Not sure what you want to do? Our global career development facilitator (GCDF) will provide some direction and suggestions to get you on the right track. She has helped hundreds of our clients discover the best path for their self-fulfillment and professional development through guided coaching and targeted questions.

Why is knowing your career goal so important to the resume writing process? At The Grammar Doctors, we only create strategic resumes; if you want a laundry list of what you have done across your career, you won’t find that here. Instead, we believe that a resume is a bridge that connects your experience and accomplishments to a specific goal. It showcases your value proposition to support that goal, and knowing precisely what you want to target allows us to position you to best accomplish it.

Once you have a clear handle on your career goal, our resume writing conversation will move forward to discuss your experience. Depending on our strategy, we’ll develop either a chronological, functional, or combination resume approach. We spend a significant amount of time discussing your accomplishments, as they are the crux of your value proposition. Accomplishments are key to not only the resume writing process but also to your interview and networking success.

Interview and Job-search Support

Following our conversation about your resume, we will provide extensive coaching on how to get the most out of your job search. This includes a discussion of the interview, looking for a position using traditional and modern methods, and networking in real life and online.

Time and again, our clients tell us that, even more than our resume writing services, the support they receive in finding a job proves to be the most valuable part of working with The Grammar Doctors. In fact, when clients use our resumes in combination with the strategies and tactics we suggest as part of our job-search support, they are able to obtain new positions or promotions within an average of six weeks.

We want you to succeed, and we will do everything in our power to help you reach the next step in your career journey, whether that is your first step out of college or your final position prior to retirement. You can trust The Grammar Doctors to be your partners in your job search.

We would love to tell you that, with resume writing services from The Grammar Doctors, the sky will part and a job will land in your lap. But we know that’s not the reality of the situation. That’s why we provide job-search coaching to all of our clients who choose the consultative resume approach. We also provide a number of other services to help support your job search and ensure your success.

Cover Letters
It’s true that a majority of recruiters and employers don’t read cover letters, but for those who do, they’ll want you to put your best foot forward. We can write an assertive cover letter that complements your resume to bring to the forefront your strongest attributes and increase your chances of securing the interview.

LinkedIn Bio
Did you know that LinkedIn is the #1 way that recruiters and employers source candidates? We naturally include LinkedIn coaching and strategies for all clients who choose a consultative resume writing package. But you may choose to really elevate your LinkedIn profile with a custom bio. Your resume writer will draft a bio that showcases your talents and adds just enough personal information to paint you as a three-dimensional person and highlights the attributes you will bring to a new organization.
