Need a resume? You’ve come to the right place! With hundreds of happy clients served, award-winning published author Katie Bickell is happy to help you draft an effective C.V.
How does this process work?
Getting started on your resume with Katie is easy. Simply send a message using the form on the bottom of this page, or email katie_bickell (at) yahoo (dot) com. Let her know whether you need help drafting a resume, a cover letter, or both. With a little more information, she’ll send you an estimate of cost right away.
Once connected, there are a variety of ways to start. Clients are encouraged to email all information they already have – old resumes, photos of certificates, links to job descriptions, letters of recommendation. Katie will organize this information and create a list of follow up questions that can be answered either through email or over a phone interview at no extra charge.
Some clients don’t have a lot of information at hand. Perhaps you are re-entering the workforce after an extended break, you’re changing industries completely, or you don’t feel comfortable sending an outdated resume. No problem! Katie will set up a free phone interview at your convenience to gather all necessary information through a friendly conversation.
After the information is gathered, Katie will create the first draft of your resume in a professional template designed to suit your industry. This draft will be emailed to you in a watermarked PDF file so you can see what it will look like once it is complete. Read this draft carefully and create a list of changes you’d like Katie to make. Edits are part of the process and completely free. Katie will perform the necessary changes and send you the updated file. This part of the process is usually very fast, but it’s never over until the client is 100% satisfied with the final draft.
Once you believe the file has reached perfection, Katie will send an invoice payable through eTransfer or cheque. After payment is received, Katie will send you an unmarked copy of your resume as both PDF and a Word file. Now you’re ready to put your best face forward on the job hunt!
How long does it take to write a resume?
The final draft of your resume will be complete within seven business days of gathering work history information. However, rush options are available for an added charge. To inquire, please email us using the form below or at katie_bickell (at) yahoo (dot) com
How much does a resume cost?
A basic resume starts at $100. However, the complexity and length of a CV varies widely on a number of factors. For example, those seeking resumes to apply for entry-level positions often find the most effective resumes are shorter (one page) and succinct, highlighting skills and experience, while a lawyer’s CV might include several pages and focus on achievements, letters of recommendation, and advanced education, awards, or even publications authored. The latter’s cost would reflect the added amount of attention necessary to draft such a document. Please use the form below to inquire on cost.
Katie will keep your resume on file in case you need to retrieve it at a later date. If you need future updates to this file as your career progresses, Katie will perform the service for a cost of $50. Please note that this fee covers edits to an existing resume, but full resume rewrites (such as in the case of a client’s industry change) may cost more.
In the meantime, you are ready to start applying for work with confidence and ease, knowing you’re ready to make a great impression. Please keep in touch and let us know when you’ve landed that dream job! You can also leave a review on Katie’s Author Page.
