Review of Résumé / CV and Cover Letter

Stand out from the crowd.

Let us help you to stand out from the crowd.  We make detailed comments to help you refine your résumé and cover letter for securing employment or volunteer opportunities.

Review of Résumé / Cover Letter

You will receive a detailed set of written comments designed to improve the content and quality of your document.  Your document will go through two levels of review; first by an Astroff Coach, and then by Dr. Robert Astroff personally, before being sent back to you.


COST: Typically between $150 - $350

The benefits of this review:

  • Two-level review process.

  • Review past experiences and achievements that you provided and make suggestions.

  • Suggest editorial changes to make your entries both effective and precise.

  • Provide guidance on turning experiences into compelling statements.

  • Advise on activities to include and exclude.

  • Make recommendations on formatting, editing and style to ensure clarity and consistency.

How does the process work?

We start with a draft of your document that you send to us. We will provide you with a quote prior to starting any work on your document.  Once you have approved the quote, we review your draft and make recommendations for improvement. We will provide you with our written comments, as well as offer to schedule a phone call if you would like to discuss our suggestions in further detail (which can be beneficial to ensure that there are no misunderstandings about the suggestions that we make).  Learn More about our Document Review Process

Working on more than one document?

If you are working on several application documents at the same time (such as résumé and cover letter), we recommend that you start writing your résumé first.  The entries that you write for your résumé will help you in formulating your thoughts for accomplishments you wish to highlight in your cover letter.

Do you write documents on behalf of clients?

We do not write documents for clients.  Instead, we  provide detailed recommendations for improvement based on the drafts that you provide to us, and assist you in producing the best documents that you can through our coaching and mentoring. We do more than develop applications.  We develop skills.  Our clients consistently tell us that our document review process actually improved their ability to write effectively, express their ideas clearly, and think critically.
