Imagine that you are put in charge of preparing some written marketing documentation to send to a potential client.  This is a big client.  If you could win the business, it would make you the hands down hero for forever.  Well, at least it would significantly improve your bottom line.  How would you handle this task? You would endeavor to prove your corporate worth, right? You would write in the strongest and clearest terms possible to maximize limited space.  You would do your research.  Bottom line, you would position your organization as the very best and sell, sell, sell! A resumé is no different…. Read more here.

  2. Shauna,

    i am currently on disability, but have been given the go ahead to do a small amount of work (half time).

    I have a pretty solid educational background up to the Ph.D. level, but without the dissertation. I want to go into freelance writing in a way that gets the information across, but without all the academic style that confuses people. My speciality is demography and social issues.

    Do you have any words of advice regarding how I might start out? I’m not rushing to make a huge sum of money, but I don’t want to short change myself either.

    Thanks for listening, and for any help you might be able to pass along. Right now I’m in northern Florida, but can move just about anywhere and am willing to do it.

    Sincerely,
    Pat Simonik
