    Hello, I know writing! Or this would not be my ninth year at a state university writing center teaching/tutoring from undergrad to the doctoral level in 50 different majors. From my own writing service apart from elance where I have six years of experience crafting resumes for results, a few testimonials follow: A direct quote from a client's husband who hires and fires at a high level position. After seeing the resume I wrote for her, he wrote her an email saying, " That's pretty impressive. I think we should do that for both boys." -Keith D. And, yes, if you are curious, both sons are pleased with the resumes I wrote for them. Another quote: This time from a parent who contacted me for his soon-to- graduate son: "Wow, cover letter blew us away!!! Nice job!! ... ...Nice work on the Resume also. We are very impressed" -Brian V. Another testimony: "Hello, I just wanted to thank you for all your help. I got the job and start on Monday. Thanks again." Tim F.

    Writing and editing are passions I have had for some time now, and it is very exciting to get to work on my love for the written word every day. I have a proven track record of excellent results, where my passion shines through in my work. I have experience in editing articles, eBooks, novels, and marketing materials. I also have experience writing website content as well as creative writing. I have been a freelancer full-time now for a few of months, and I have to say, I should have done it sooner! I love the work I do in writing, copy-writing, editing, and proofreading. Every day that goes by, I learn something new, and I can add it to my knowledge. I never stop learning and I apply that to the work I do everyday.

    United States - Last active: 25 days ago

    Hello, I'm Jennifer (but I go by Jen), and I'm a writer and editor. I've secured a bachelor of arts in English (technical-writing track) with a minor in magazine journalism, as well as roughly eight years' professional experience in my field. Taking the beautifully crafted words of others and organizing them into the best possible version for a solid end product is something I could do every day of my life and never consider it work. The Scripps National Spelling Bee is my Super Bowl equivalent. I think language is beautiful, and I continue to be amazed by it every day! I am currently learning French, and hope to revisit Spanish one day. I've been published on HelloGiggles, xojane, and Orlando Weekly, and I'm an Amazon-published editor. Please feel free to message me for my website link (which includes my résumé and portfolio) and the links to my HelloGiggles, xojane, Orlando Weekly, and Amazon pages.

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 6

    Hi, I'm Jordan Pennington, and thanks for checking out my profile. I'm currently an editor and author for Alot Health (health.alot.com), a health and wellness site owned by Inuvo Inc. that I've been working for since July 2014. Additionally, I founded and continue to manage the Tumblr presence for Alot Health (alothealth.tumblr.com). During an average week, I frequently find myself working as a content and copy editor, a social media marketer, a current events sleuth, and a user experience designer--but thankfully not all at once! Before my current position I was a full-time freelance writer specializing in website content, blog posts, and ad copy. I worked with a number of clients here on Upwork (formerly oDesk), and I'm proud to say that my work history speaks for itself. While the majority of my time these days is devoted to Alot Health, I'm still very interested in taking on side projects that pique my interest. If you have work that you think I'd be a good fit for based on what you've seen here, don't hesitate to drop me a line!
