Need a Great Resume?

February 5, 2009

Looking for a job or hoping to get a promotion?

In the business world, first impressions are everything, and that means the first step toward your new career is a polished, professional, and purposeful resume.

A good resume is more than just a list of names and dates, a great resume conveys your skills, your passion, and your value to a specific employer, for a specific position.

I am a professional writer, and copy editor, with experience in Human Resources and resume writing. I am proficient in Microsoft Word, have high-speed internet, and use professional resume software, followed by a line edit for every resume.


Rates for resume writers vary according to location as well as the type of resume being prepared. However, it’s not uncommon to be charged $50.00 or more for a resume rewrite and $100.00 or more for a resume prepared from scratch.

PPB Editing charges a flat rate of $25 for rewrites and $50 for preparing a resume from scratch.

After ten years of reading resumes and hiring applicants (or not), I know what employers are looking for!

PerryPerkinsBooks Editing Services

I am a professional, full-time writer who can assist you with your ad copy, website text, magazine articles, or ghost writing of your book, novel, or memoirs.

My fiction experience includes two novels, two short story collections, a cookbook, and hundreds of articles in nation-wide magazines, everything from Writer’s Digest and Guideposts, to American Hunter and Bassmaster Magazine.

My inspirational stories have been included in twelve Chicken Soup anthologies, as well.

I favor clear, concise writing that gets the points across with creativity, humor, and an emotional hook. I accept writing jobs from light editing to complete ghostwriting projects, and I charge by the job or by the hour at very reasonable rates (5 cents per original manuscript word, on average. A lower fee structure is available for projects of 10,000+ words.)

I am also an experienced self-publisher and can take your work from rough-draft to a published book available world-wide, in hard-copy, eBook format, or both.

Here’s what a few of my clients have said:

“Thank you for editing my cover letter for a Customer Care Supervisor position at *******, Inc. Very good revision. It’s a lot shorter and says everything I really wanted to say. You are a genius!” – Michael Wilkey

“I appreciate your generosity as it relates to your volunteer work for your Church. I’m a pastor, bible teacher, and many other things, NONE of which includes a good speller or English major. So, it has been very helpful to have a professional looking after my work. Tutoring my daughter has brought her grades to an A+ and writing has become her favorite subject.” -Pastor Doug Fairrington, Living Hope community Church Wilsonville, OR

“I wouldn’t dream of sending any important correspondence without having Perry proof it for me first. He always finds things to improve and the finished product is something I can truly be proud to send.” – Gary Lundblad

“I would like to say that I felt so honored for the editing you have done and that you would say such kind things about my book, I guess I just never expected you to take that much time, for the small amount that you charged me. Thank you so much for all your hard work and your book review. It was most flattering and I appreciate it very much. You are truly a blessing to me.” – Sharon Neva, Author of  “Reach for the Stars”

So, what now?

Please email me first, before sending your work. After we’ve confirmed your project then, you may email me your manuscript or, in a securely taped, sturdy cardboard manuscript box, send your entire novel or short story, a check or money order for the complete agreed-upon payment for my services (including the amount to return your package back to you — a.k.a. the SASE), and anything else you may want to send (nothing that needs to be fed, please).

Please do not send your only copy of anything. Please use my complete and correct address.
