    LinkedIn Recommendations

    August did a fabulous job of tweaking and re-organizing my resume. She is extremely professional, provides fast service and has impeccable attention to detail. i highly recommend her for jobs that need such quality in addition to her resume makeover services.

    Zhada Eaves
    Health & Fitness Marketing Professional

    I honestly could not believe the high quality of work I received for $39.00. I was getting so frustrated trying to find an affordable resume service, because who can spend hundreds of dollars on a resume while they are looking for a job? I really thought this was too good to be true. August contacted me immediately after receiving my payment, asked all the right questions, and less than a week later, I had a beautifully designed resume. I had my resume up on many sites and rarely was contacted. After replacing my resume with the one August made-over for me, I had 5 requests from different companies wanting to interview me, within 3 hours! This service is absolutely, 100% the best quality resume service you will find at an affordable price! I would gladly recommend this service to anyone!

    August did me a huge favor in transforming my college resume into a professional career resume! Fresh out of college and was looking to begin my career in HR. Without any experience directly in that field, August gave me advise on where I should begin my career. She informed me that, hey, maybe you should consider other spectrums of HR. She suggested something lighter, to start off my career and gain experience. With the help of August redirecting my focus on my resume, I began applying to new career options. I received endless opportunities and LANDED MY FIRST JOB out of college, as a recruiter! I am very excited t begin my new journey as a recruiter! So hey if any RNs or LVNs are interested in top opportunities, I am your girl! Thank you August!

    Have no fear, August is here to save your resume! I discovered August’s services through LinkedIn and browsing Quick and Affordable resume writer’s website. She provides superb service and outstanding clarity in her communication emails. She revived my slowly dieing resume and brought it back to life. I am so pleased with my resume and literally cannot stop smiling everytime I think about it. In my old resume I was blinded and stuck at what terms to use and how to exude my skills. With August’s help I have received a boost in confidence and self worth.

    August responded promptly to my resume request, she did a great job overhauling my resume, similar priced services cost five times as much, are slower and in my opinion are lower quality. I am very happy with her services, fast friendly and cheap, you can’t beat it.

  • I am a pro resume writer with years of experience writing resumes and cover letters that help clients land interviews. The job market is saturated and everything is so expensive these days. I know we all want to pay less for quality. Heck, I sure do!  That is why I started Quick & Affordable Resumes (QNA) in 2004. Initially I charged $89 for from-scratch resumes. In many cases, I improved my clients’ resumes without asking them dozens of questions.
