    I am a writer that focuses on resumes, LinkedIn profiles, cover letters, corporate bios, and various business content (websites, marketing materials) for clients. I also have expertise in job search tactics and strategy and offer clients help via one-on-one coaching services over video call or phone. My specialty is technology resumes for the US market targeting start ups (Silicon Valley / San Francisco Bay Area and across the US) with many successes at big name companies (Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Tesla, FAANG, et al.). I've also written hundreds of resumes and CVs for global clients from CEO to junior roles across industries including law, marketing, finance, entertainment, and healthcare. My technology clients range from CTO and CIO level, entrepreneurs and founders, product managers, data scientists, software engineers, project managers, infosec, testers, etc. I'm different than most resume writers in that I have 20 years of hiring experience as a recruiter for US startups, so I have deep knowledge of the resume's intended audience. I know how the mind of a recruiter functions - why they stop reading a resume, what gets their interest, etc. - and I leverage that expertise when writing for my clients. I have had many articles on tech career topics (resumes, interviews, markets) published and/or cited by Lifehacker, Fast Company, WSJ Online, American Management Association, Tech Beacon, DZone, et al. My former blog (now inactive) is JobTipsForGeeks.com, and I published a job search ebook Job Tips For Geeks: The Job Search (available on Amazon). I'm 'fecak' on Hacker News and active on Reddit's /r/resumes as 'resumeraidersDOTcom' where I help job seekers with targeted advice on resumes and job search strategy. I'm also a former moderator at /r/cscareerquestions under my own handle 'fecak'. Please have a look at my Upwork history and reach out if you have any questions.

    "Olusola has been an absolute joy to work with. She is efficient and puts out high-quality work. She's fast and communicative, and her work is top-notch! She gave great developmental edits and proofreads for my mystery-romance novel. Her wealth of experience with reading and editing novels has proven to be better than I could've expected.

    I bring 25 years of professional expertise to the sacred process of writing. I am a published author, academically-trained scholar, and executive manager in the nonprofit world. My passion, skill, and experience place me in a unique position to assist individual and organizational clients. I offer ghost writing, editing, and research. Resumes, cover letters, Personal Statements, bios (not Wikipedia), and LinkedIn profiles are my specialty areas. In September 2007, I founded Writing the World, LLC in the Colorado area, U.S.A. I revamped my organizational website and started a blog on Hope from History in November 2013. Beginning with one editing client, I have worked with an additional twelve individuals and groups. Throughout my schooling and career, my writing has been an asset. In the early part of my professional life as a social worker, I wrote newsletter articles for the organization. I continued this journalistic strand in almost every other organization. Graduate work further strengthened my writing along with honing my critical thinking and research capabilities. With this foundation, I became a published author in 2003. I have book reviews in scholarly journals, chapters in edited collections, numerous encyclopedia articles, and my forthcoming book from Swedenborg Foundation. Starting in the nonprofit world in 1993, I became a successful grant writer and project manager. At New Foundations Nonviolence Center (1993-2005), I rose from Development Director to Executive Director. I continued in the latter capacity at Colorado Women’s Agenda (2005-6) where I developed three new programs: Inclusiveness Initiative, Grassroots Organizing, and Internship Program. I provided grant writing and editorial skills to Greater Denver Interfaith Alliance (2007-10). I worked with two primary nonprofits through my business. With Votaw Colony Museum, Inc., I co-coordinated two-day public history events held in different locations in eastern Kansas (2006-11). I especially enjoyed my project management work at BlackPast.Org (2008-13) where I obtained photo permissions for the group’s online reference center and developed a new section on African American and African Diaspora Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) history.

    As a writer and editor, I create clear, concise content that communicates easily with readers. I specialize in admissions essays, SEO blogs, and bios, and I also have a strong background in web content, academic writing, non-fiction, fiction, and poetry. I served as the Head Editor for Modern Singer Magazine for four years, and I am comfortable editing both long- and short-form pieces of all genres. I can provide detailed proofreading and copy editing, as well as more extensive developmental editing that includes larger issues of content, structure, tone, and character. As a professional opera singer, I am an excellent resource for artists, musicians, and everyone in the creative sphere.

I also have a minor in History and am a very capable academic and non-fiction writer, with a specialty in the Chicago Manual of Style. I received a Mellon Scholar Grant to write my article, “ ‘And if any person would meddle of my cause:' Anne Boleyn, Music, and Sexism.”

    A long time ago and in a land far away (just kidding...only one of these is true), I entered college like many people do: directionless and looking for the next party. It was a rough start to my academic career. A few months later, "Introduction to Creative Writing" was the only class I was passing. Admittedly, it was also the only class I was attending, but even after I adjusted my terrible habits and decided to show up for the other courses in which I'd enrolled, there was a reason I never skipped English. Whether with artistic flair or through concise, organized prose, I knew that I wanted to craft a career out of reading and writing. So, that's what I did. I acknowledge literacy is a foundational element of education and that, practically speaking, most people possess these skills. However, the amount of time I spend performing these activities for my clients (as well as practicing them in my leisure time) affords me a unique position in the copywriting marketplace. The fact of the matter is--this is all that I do. I read, and I write. Over the past 20 years, I've composed everything from love poems to landing pages for others, and I've relished every moment of the process. If you'd like more details about the type(s) of writing I provide for clients: I convince admissions committees to accept people into their university. I compose personal bios that build confidence in potential clients. I describe services or products that elicit intererst in prospective buyers. I generate creative ideas for people whose muse has disappeared. If you need help getting unstuck on a writing assignment, if you don't have the margin in your life to produce a writing task, or if you don't have the requisite skills for a specific writing project, I want to help. To me, there's no greater satisfaction than writing a story, an article, or even an email for someone who lacks the time or confidence to compose it on their own. I hope you will consider me for any writing or editing projects that require a dedicated and talented professional. Joe

    The best writing is precise, concise, accurate, and accessible to a non-specialist. I am a native English speaker with extensive editing and writing experience. I am comfortable writing about anything in science or commerce, and specialize in the natural sciences, medicine, psychology, history, and the social sciences. Cryptocurrency has become a subspecialty of mine. I can edit and write about any topic. As a retired professor with a Ph.D., I have published over 70 papers. Forty of those papers have been cited at least 40 times! You can see all my work on Google Scholar, linked on my portfolio. For 15 years, I was an associate editor of "Systematic Biology", one of the highest impact journals in science. I guided many doctoral dissertations to successful completion and was head of admissions in my department. I have a strong record in writing proposals ​and have been awarded seven NSF grants. I have years of experience in teaching as well, with demonstrated success at primary, secondary, undergraduate and graduate levels. This experience has provided skills in explaining things to any targeted audience, from 5 year-olds to professors. Just because I am capable of writing highly complex technical stuff does not mean that I cannot communicate to a general audience. Please do not invite me to interview for fixed-price jobs. I prefer hourly rates so that I can offer you meticulous service, without rushing.

    Think of me as a Content Whisperer. I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO I AM. I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. I approach every job intent on finding a happy ending and we aren't finished until we get there. HOW I GOT HERE. I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. HOW I DO WHAT I DO. Asking questions, lots of them, and listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME. Read what my clients have to say about their experience working with me and my pledge to arrive at a happy ending, every time with every assignment. There are hundreds of reviews from clients that have become friends in virtually every industry and over thirty countries around the world. I look forward to hearing from you but know that I've made my practice not to take on work without conversation to first ensure a mutual fit. It's the path to happy, successful ending. Until then, wishing you good health and great success. andrew

My clients are getting hired by forward-thinking organizations and big firms that ethically leverage the new business opportunities created by the current economy. Are you prepared?

In particular, my job is to create stellar and impactful résumés, optimized LinkedIn profiles, winning cover letters, and other job search materials for first-time job seekers and senior managers in all fields.

As a result, I have worked with thousands of satisfied clients from diverse backgrounds at all levels, including fresh graduates, military veterans, mid-level managers, and seasoned global business leaders. You see, research has revealed that hiring managers spend about 30 seconds looking at a resume before deciding if the candidate is a great fit or not, while recruitment consultants spend even less. Resumes or Cover letters that are poorly written, littered with too many keywords, or lacking essential information will be easily overlooked in favor of ATS-compliant, job-winning resumes - the type that I write. This means that candidates who are capable of doing the job in question are ignored, simply because their resume has let them down. My clients seeking entry-level, mid-level, and C-level positions get hired faster with my keyword-optimized profiles and recruiter-focused cover letters suited for today's economic climate. My past clients on and off-Upwork have consistently recognized my expertise and commitment to going the extra mile to provide satisfactory service.

How To Hire Top Biography Writers

What is a biography writer?

Ever pick up a book that contains the details of someone’s life? Or read an excerpt that conveys someone’s true, personal or professional life story? You were reading content curated by a biography writer - a nonfiction, professional storyteller of individuals and their lives. 

How do you hire a biography writer?

You can source biography writing talent on Upwork by following these three steps:

  • Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in a biography writer.
  • Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  • Shortlist and interview biography writers. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. Whose profiles and proposals stand out to you the most?

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of biography writer you need to complete your project. 

How much does it cost to hire a biography writer?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced biography writer may command higher fees but will also work faster, have more specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work consistently.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their biography writing services more competitively. 

Rates typically charged by biography writers on Upwork are:

  • Beginner: $32 per hour
  • Intermediate: $59 per hour
  • Advanced: $150 per hour

Which biography writer is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project. 

Biography writers come from many different backgrounds

When you’re looking to hire a biography writer, keep in mind that many candidates possess a degree in Journalism, English Literature, or even History. Biography writers have mastered creating compelling narratives by weeding out important facts and details through interviews, personal letters and diaries, and other informational sources such as books and news articles. Some biography writers also have mastered many other forms of writing, including comics and novels. Keep this in mind as you select the best candidate for your project. 

Biography Writer Hiring FAQ

How do you write a biography writer job post?

Your job post is your chance to describe your project scope, budget, and talent needs. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

  • Ghostwriter needed to craft life story of little-known WW2 veteran
