As an academic, I’ve noticed that much of academic writing is valuable for other researchers, but far less valuable for managers and business people. As a business writer, it’s always been my goal to produce material that people in business find important and useful. I cannot describe the intrinsic reward I earn whenever I get positive feedback from a business person who has enjoyed my work.
That’s why, in addition to my “real job,” I have been offering resume writing services “on the side.” And that’s why the following quote from an actual client was so great to read:
“If any of you are looking for someone to design a professional resume, see Doc Phil. Seriously. I thought he was exaggerating when he stated it was great, but that actually was an understatement.”
My exact words to him before I handed it over were a quote from Adrian and Mickey in Rocky III: “It’s beautiful. Definitely a thing of beauty.”
Let me know if you want me to transform your resume from a simple document into a “thing of beauty.”
