You’re about 90% happy with it. You’ve been told the content is good by recruiters, and yet, you believe it needs that professional touch. The resume bullets need editing to make the key points pop (front-loading), and it could really do with a proper proofread and a solid, contemporary format. Resume Reengineering will do just that. You’ll get Gayle Howard’s master touch—transforming your dull bullet points, ensuring consistent verbs for ease of reading, fixing those errant apostrophes you’ve always wondered about, and creating a new, branded document for hundreds off the price of a new package.

    Note: Service does not include questioning to write new information or creating information not already on the resume. Your resume, as presented will be edited, proofread and reformatted. No additional documents will be reviewed or included. If new information needs to be written, please choose one of our full packages such as the Priority One, Beyond Excellence or Rapid Ascent.
