Patricia has been my job search coach for years, I try to never submit a job application without the benefit of her eagle eye. She spots obvious "resume killers" like typos and grammar errors. She also excels at the more nuanced issues of passive language and punching up writing to make it stand out. Patricia listens to ensure she has a deep and clear understanding of what the writer is trying to accomplish. She applies that knowledge to create attention-grabbing cover letters, resumes, and writing samples.
Patricia has an incredible ability to see the forest AND the trees—at the same time. She’ll point out all those little continuity errors that inevitably pop up in a long manuscript. She’ll also let you know how your themes successfully develop (or don’t) over an entire plot arc. She can tell you if you’re using commas wrong, identify your writing ticks, remind you that your Aunt Edith in Chapter 12 was your Aunt Evelyn in chapter 2, and do so in a way that inspires you to write more and better. Just hire her!
Earlier this year, I needed to transform my 15 year old, heavily technical resume, into a resume that was easily understandable, relevant to non-technical jobs, and highlighted my soft skills instead of my technical job experience. It was a daunting task—until Patricia came to the rescue, that is. What a relief! Patricia's love of language, her ability to communicate precisely and concisely, and her understanding of my needs and goals, were a tremendous help in creating a functional resume I was proud of. I'm grateful for Patricia's insights and suggestions, as well as her enthusiasm and encouragement throughout the project, making the experience actually enjoyable. And I landed a job! Thank you, Patricia!
