A great resume must do more than summarize your credentials. It must “tell your story” so it’s relevant and compelling.
Unlike some other resume service providers, Writing Wolf does not offer a potpourri of services. All we do is write and strategize with you to advance your career. We are specialists in bringing out the best in your career documents and helping you succeed in your job search.
We create powerful resumes for high-tech and other professionals that adhere to the best practices of the resume writing industry, meaning that our approach and formatting have been vetted by career and employment professionals and proven effective. Your new resume will look sharp, but more importantly it will implement an effective vision for communicating your strengths persuasively and concisely. We strive to avoid boilerplate and write unique resumes just for you.
You will work directly with Joseph Perez, CPRW, CJSS, who brings an Ivy League education plus 20+ years of professional writing experience.

Cover Letter Service
Many recruiters, human resources departments, and hiring managers read a candidate’s cover letter every bit as carefully as the resume. Sending no document … or even worse, sending a poorly written or perfunctory document … can hurt your chances. To ensure that your cover letter is every bit as strong as your cover letter, we will write a custom document for every new client (unless you tell us you don’t need one).
Your cover letter may be specifically targeted for a narrowly defined opportunity, or we could write it so that it is a solid base which you can adapt for a variety of situations.
How long should the cover letter be? Traditional cover letters are approximately one page in length, but these days the E-Note is rising in popularity. An E-note is only about half the traditional length (about half a page) and is designed to be sent in the body of an E-mail or Web form.
(1/2 Page Length)
|FREE WITH RESUME or $50 if ordered separately|
|Full Cover Letter
(2/3 to 1 Page Length)
|$50 Upgrade from Free E-Note or $100 if ordered separately|
|Cover E-Note or Custom Thank You Letter||$50|
LinkedIn Bio Service
Having a top-notch LinkedIn Bio and Profile has never been more important. Many times recruiters are working LinkedIn as their primary source of finding candidates. And employers are increasingly reviewing your LinkedIn Profile and other social media presences prior to making the all-important job offer. While it’s possible to “phone in” the profile with a mediocre document, investing in a strong and specially tailored profile is recommended.
The LinkedIn Bios we write do not merely repeat your resume’s points; they complement it. It is written in a more conversational tone than your other career documents and is comparable to an “elevator pitch”. It is a good introduction to the rest of your online profile.
We also go a big step further and create Full LinkedIn Profiles. These documents add a new weapon to your arsenal of career documents: new, succinct sections for your Skills, Job Descriptions, and more. The new copy matches the informal tone of your Bio and aims to wet a recruiter’s appetite for reading your resume, not feel that they have already seen it. We will write copy that is employer-focused and speaks to your ideal recruiters of employers. It will also be designed to help ensure that it shows up at the TOP of LinkedIn search results.

Note: LinkedIn Bios are usually delivered at the same time as the resume; however, Full LinkedIn Profiles take longer to develop and are usually delivered about one week after the resume is sent to you for review.
Job Search Strategy Coaching
Many of our clients have felt overwhelmed or bewildered by the complexities of the contemporary job search process. Others tell us that it’s been a while since they’ve had to conduct a job search and they could use some tips on getting the most out of the latest techniques and technologies. That’s why we have built in a FREE 15-minute Job Search Strategy (JSS) Coaching into our process for all our new clients. It is a time for answering your nagging questions about resume distribution, social networking, job search resources, or tips for preparing to contact specific employers.
For our clients who want to go DEEP into the strategies, tactics, and practicalities of a savvy job search, we can meet in follow-up sessions. Our first session is 60 minutes in length and we will review your progress-to-date and then create a Strategic Project Plan together for your entire job search. We’ll also send you a 500-page workbook prepared by experts at the Job Search Academy so you can get expert tips on topics that we don’t have time to explore in depth on the call.
Can you benefit from the motivation and accountability that comes with follow-through, refinements, and course corrections on your Strategic Plan? Then you can meet with us on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly schedule as your job search progresses. And when you’re faced with job offers, we will give you tips on negotiating with your future employer on salary and benefits.

Yes, it’s true that hiring a Job Search Strategist to coach you through the job search process is a significant investment. But if we can help you to get to work just one week faster than you would on your own, we have saved you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in lost income. Truth be told: if what you’re doing now isn’t working and you don’t correct your tactics, it’s possible we could save you MONTHS of headaches or keep you from taking a job is not a good fit or one that pays less than you can command. What’s more, we can make the period of unemployment less stressful and more hopeful … and that’s hard to put a price on.
