Overview of writing & editing services for job applications & LinkedIn
If your documents require an updated, fresh look - don't worry. I always include improvements in formatting, design and layout whenever needed.
If you wish to use a specific layout, that's fine, too.
We'll ensure that everything flows logically and clearly and specifically addresses the requirements of your target audience. We'll create an attractive yet compact look that awakens curiosity and
gets to the key points fast.
Before it's too late means before your target audience sees anything. Make sure your first impression is the best it can be.
When working on anything this important, it's always good to seek out a neutral pair of eyes to review your documents.
Sometimes, however, you just don't know who to ask. Or you just can't find anyone who's familiar with modern must-have's and no-gos. You need someone who's familiar with modern requirements and
styles, who can spot and weed out weaknesses, gaps and formulaic phrases.
This is where I can help. Contact me if you want your documents and profiles viewed from the perspective of a Human
Resources recruiter or a critical reader in the business world.
In my feedback and revisions, I'll identify and correct things such as: gaps in logic, confusing structure, unclear content. I will compensate for too much or too few details. I will clarify any
other points that readers unfamiliar with you or your work might have.
I normally implement all changes and improvements directly, so you receive documents that are now ready to send, or can be sent easily after a few modifications.
Customized service fees are project-based and are provided as the total charge per project.
Please contact me for a free quotation.
My initial general feedback / critique of your resume, documents or LinkedIn profile is free of charge.
How do I determine your fees?
Writing service rates (resumes, cover letters, profiles, ghostwriting, editing) are time-based.
Fees are determined once we've clarified your precise needs, scope of activity required and timeframe.
Rates for proofreading, adapting or editing your resume, cover letter or social media profiles are based on text length and time requirements for research, editing, layout and formatting.
Proofreading rates start at €85.00 / hour (plus 19% German sales tax for EU residents)
Editing / translation rates start at €120.00 / hour (plus 19% sales tax for EU residents)
My fees include feedback, direct implementation of all changes and improvements (design/layout, content/editing), research, combined with a few tips and suggestions.
Why not offer packages or "price per document"?
My philosophy is that each project, each client, each career path is truly different and will definitely require different amounts of time and preparation, depending on the industry or specific
audience or company you have in mind.
As well, students and career starters have a different budget to work with than CEOs and high earners. Price discounts on a sliding scale may be offered to clients who qualify.
Within general job groupings (executives, senior managers, business specialists, technical specialists, medical specialists, legal specialists, academics, entrepreneurs etc.) there can be huge
differences. As a result, I prefer not to offer "packages" or set prices solutions for comprehensive projects - because that would mean fitting you inside a price box or time-limit box. When you're
categorized this way, the risk is a result that's rushed - and overall quality (and your image) may suffer.
You'll always receive customized documents, tailor-written to reflect your career development, special achievements and personal strengths. I'll implement all my expertise and feeling for the
right approach, appropriate tone, down-to-earth phraseology and modern style* used in today's English-language world of human resources recruiting and self-marketing in the business world.
(*modern, yet appropriate to your targeted industry and audience, ranging from conservative to alternative and everything in between*)
If my approach makes sense to you, please contact me at any time and I'll be happy to listen to exactly what you need and inform you of your cost of investment. I'll email you the fees for each
part of the project, so you know the total price ahead of time.
