Frequently Asked Questions

If you don’t find the answer you need below, please contact me.

I offer the highest quality writing for resumes and LinkedIn profiles based on today’s best practices. I also provide excellent job interview coaching and support in finding your career path. As a member of Career Thought Leaders, I have a finger on the pulse of recruiting trends.

Customers often call upon me for random writing requests, which I love! I’ve written Christmas newsletters, blog posts, and speeches; developed presentations; and spoken at conferences.

This is a real message I received from an entrepreneur client for whom I built a new LinkedIn profile: “Hi Kyla, This is amazing. I’m truly impressed… If you put it like that, I’m slightly more impressed with myself as well :). Best, XXXX” 

I know I’m successful when I receive messages like that! My goal is to help clients see themselves in the best light by articulating their value, which translates to career advancement.

Resumes should only be written as .doc files because any other format can be difficult for applicant tracking system (ATS) algorithms to read (meaning you may struggle to get in front of a human being if you use a format other than .doc). I can accommodate Word or Drive. If you’d like a .pdf, I can also provide one.

I offer a free 15-minute discovery call. Please contact me for the link. I will ask you to send your resume and LinkedIn URL ahead of time if possible.

You’ll receive your first draft(s) within 7 days, subject to availability. Rush delivery options are available for an additional fee.

My goal is to provide the highest quality service at affordable prices. I offer 4 pricing tiers, including entry-level, mid-career, senior-level, and executive to accommodate the likely amount of time your project will take. Please contact me for specific pricing.

Please contact me for a free resume review, LinkedIn review, or discovery call. If you’re ready to roll, we can cut the fluff and just get started! The first step is to fill out my onboarding form, which I’ll email you.

Yes, my resumes are ATS-friendly. ATS stands for Applicant Tracking System, which is a software application used by companies to manage and streamline their recruitment process. These systems help employers to filter, sort, and rank resumes based on specific keywords and criteria relevant to the job opening. An ATS-friendly resume is designed with proper formatting, clear headings, and the strategic use of keywords to ensure that it is easily parsed and understood by the tracking system. By creating ATS-friendly resumes, I maximize the chances of your resume being noticed and selected for further review, increasing your likelihood of landing an interview.

Yes, my resume and LinkedIn services include a 30-minute review call / video chat, but I recommend we do that after I review the information you give me on the onboarding form. The reason for this is that I want to look at the jobs you’re interested in, the information you provide, and then see if there are questions I need to ask to enhance how you present yourself.

First, I have you fill out a comprehensive onboarding form, and we can hop on a quick discovery call if you’d like. From there, I’ll write your first draft, and we’ll kick around revisions via email. If you prefer we discuss your changes in person, we can hop on another 30-minute call/video chat at no additional charge. We’ll work together on your document until you’re 100% satisfied (which rarely takes more than two iterations due to my process, which is informed by engagements with more than 4,800 job seekers).

In just one session, you’ll learn everything you need to master the three fundamental keys to successful interviewing: mindset, preparation, and strategy. You’ll learn how to approach interviews from the interviewer’s perspective, prepare effectively, and answer even the toughest questions with confidence using the “STAR” format. Plus, with tips on what to wear, how to negotiate your salary, and more, you’ll have all the tools you need to ace your next interview. The 1:1 includes an eBook and activities on each topic. Once we lay the groundwork, I’m always here to help with last-minute requests to practice before big interviews.

Leveraging my passion for storytelling and creative writing skills, I produce compelling bios that showcase an executive’s leadership abilities and career achievements. I draw on the latest industry trends and techniques, while also taking the time to get to know you and your personal brand. Together, we will craft a bio that not only highlights your expertise but also captures the essence of who you are as a professional. Whether you’re a seasoned executive looking to update your existing bio or a rising star in need of a brand-new narrative, I am here to help you tell your story with confidence and clarity.
