Melanie L. Denny is the person you want. She was worth every single penny that her fees demand. She is very professional and her work is outstanding and more importantly…she is an even better person.
How it works…
Once you pick your package, you will then be prompted to check out and redirected to a questionnaire which is necessary for us to get a better idea of your work history, accomplishments and career goals. Be sure to copy and paste 2 sample job descriptions of positions you are targeting and upload a copy of your existing resume.
Once we receive all your information, you will schedule your personal branding session with your certified professional resume writer to discuss project details. Within 7 -10 business days from your personal branding session, you will receive your brand new documents via email.
If you have any edits, changes or questions, they may be discussed with your writer at that time. Once all documents are finalized, you will receive access to all final versions.
Note: you may want to check with your tax professional. Resume services may be a tax deductible item 😉

Melanie Denny is an extraordinary woman and thanks to her I now have a resume that I can confidently hand over to prospective employers.
Since the new updated resume I have been offered job opportunities that suit me. My resume is now screaming out ‘HIRE ME’ and I give all my thanks to her.- Aduke Wilson
Some career professionals believe cover letters are dead, but they are very much alive and a necessary component of your application. But, you haven’t a clue what to say in your cover letter, do you?
Well, leave it to us to determine the best message for your cover letter so you don’t rehash the resume, but use it as an opportunity to sell yourself to your future boss.
Our cover letters aren’t your typical boring, run-of-the-mill letters. They are powerful, concise, value proposition letters that position you for your specific career target.
Melanie, Love your work – I hope I live up to my resume!- Maureen Rodolfy
Resume Tailoring Class
Applicant Tracking Systems can be a challenge to figure out. Now that more than 80% of companies are using some kind of ATS to manage applications, you’ve got to crack the ATS code if you want to have a chance when applying online. Luckily all of our documents are ATS friendly – plus we give you a free ASCII plain text file just in case.
But formatting is only one component that the ATS looks at. You also have to master what I like to call the ‘keyword game’. The resume we create for you will be fabulous to send to contacts, hiring managers and recruiters, but you may need to tweak some of the verbiage based on the job description at hand.
I know…you’re not exactly sure how to do that, right? Well, in this class, I give you a crash course in applicant tracking software and show you exactly how to tweak your resume so it matches the job description more closely.
The services I received from Melanie were incredible! She completed my resume in a timely manner, advised me on the “do’s and don’ts” of a resume, and provided some interview tips. Melanie has given me the confidence to send my resume to employers that I didn’t have before! In fact, when I interviewed for the job I have now the employer complimented my cover letter! She’s amazing and I will now and always use her services and advice!- Marquise Vilsaint
It’s all about finding people – not jobs.
The reality is, more than 80% of jobs aren’t advertised and 70% of jobs are found through networking. So, what does that mean for you? Direct connections are vital to your job search success.
With a customizable e-note (short for electronic note), you can make a strong initial impression when introducing yourself to your future boss, recruiters in your field or HR reps at the companies you’re targeting.
You will have something powerful, interesting and relevant to say that will spark the reader’s excitement and make them want to talk to you about joining their team right away.
- Estelle Williams
After losing a high profile job that I held for 9 years very unexpectedly, I was left devastated, and so out of touch with the current job market, I didn’t know what to do. Resume-Evolution has given me a resume and cover letter, that has erased all of my fears. Now, when I submit my resume, I know that it is of the highest standard. Also, her LinkedIn service has given me such a powerful profile, that it is being viewed by companies all over the world! Thanks Melanie!- Scott Sirach

I have to say thanks for helping me with getting my resume together…I’ve gotten several jobs and I know my resume helped me get calls back. As soon as we revised my resume, the calls were flooding in! I’ve referred one friend and I’m sending over another since you’re so great at what you do.- Latisha Gaither
Salary Negotiation Guide
A survey by Salary.com revealed that only 37% of people always negotiate their salaries. Yet, 84% of employers said they always expect job applicants to negotiate salary during the interview stage.
A lot of this apprehension is based on fear and lack of confidence. But, once you know how negotiations work, what to ask for and what you’re worth, you’ll be able to negotiate with ease. This PDF guide covers everything you need to know about:
- When you should negotiate and when you shouldn’t
- What you can negotiate and what you cannot
- The power of information: preparation and research
- Working with recruiters
Don’t leave any more money on the table!
Thank You Letters
The key is in the follow-up.
Once you leave the interview, you’re not done interviewing. Studies have shown that only 50% of candidates follow up after an interview. Be among the elite candidates who actually follow up and do it with strategy.
Our cover letter templates are fully customizable but also follow our signature “start working before you get hired” framework to making a strong, memorable impression to the hiring manager.
Wow your future boss by not only thanking them for their time after the interview but continually portraying your value to the organization.
As you are well aware, the ‘world wide web’ is now a huge part of the job search process. The truth of the matter is, employers that are interested in you WILL Google your name.
What will they find?
What if they found a comprehensive portfolio of your professional career complete with your headshot, success stories and areas of expertise that brilliantly displays your brand?
With a Webfolio, you would stand out in a sea of candidates with a compelling career story in the form of a simple, yet attractive and intuitive website.
Employers have reported that having a strong web presence is a key determining factor in contacting a candidate for an interview.
Your perceived value is an essential component of not only securing meaningful interviews but enabling the employer to visualize you as key contributor to their company.
Take a look at some of the live samples here: Webfolio Samples
Let’s face it. With the advancement of technology, today’s job market has become over-saturated and can be very overwhelming. The major online job boards are certainly not the most ideal way to spend your time since there is only an average 1% to 4% success rate.
The name of the game is finding people — NOT JOBS! So, why not reach out directly to recruiters in your field who have career opportunities ready to be filled by someone with your skill set? We have access to a database of more than 18,000 unique recruiting firms across the US who would love to see your resume come across their inbox.
Let us do the work for you! We email your brand new resume and intro letter to specified recruiters in your field and provide you with a list with their contact information so you can follow up directly.
Your job search couldn’t be easier!
You must have distributed my new résumé to the recruiters this morning. My phone has been ringing off the hook all day. This was the best money I have spent in a very long time! Can’t thank you enough.- Happy Client from New Jersey
Mini Resume Cards
Weather you’re at a networking event, career fair or job interview, mini resume cards are an innovative way to market yourself. As part of your career marketing package, mini resume cards offer a convenient and fresh opportunity to impress a potential employer.
We design each card with key qualifications and career highlights on a standard sized business card that you can take with you everywhere (networking events, job fairs, meetings, parties, weddings — anywhere you could potentially meet someone new).
At your level, you’re expected to have a professional bio. With a strong, well-written 1-page bio, you can quickly showcase your background, personal brand, reputation and expertise in a crisp narrative format.
Perfect for networking, executive biographies provide a big picture perspective of your career history in cases where a resume is inappropriate, premature, or too much information. In addition to job search, they are also useful for board appointments, business opportunities or speaking engagements.
Don’t miss an opportunity to sell yourself.
Melanie did a fantastic job rewriting my resume and Linkedin profile for me. Melanie listened and with great style was able to deliver exactly what I wanted. Melanie took a dreadful process for me and made it easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend Melanie!- John Rodriguez
Reference Sheets / Recommendations
“References Available Upon Request” is something we are no longer adding to the bottom of the resume. Because, well…it’s obvious that if we want the job and they request references, we’ll furnish them.
So, why not be ready when they do ask? A reference sheet can be a very important factor in sealing the deal. We make sure to not only create your reference sheet but provide you with a guide on how to pick your references and how to prep them for being contacted by your potential employer.
Snippets of your recommendations are a nice touch to complement the reference sheet. Compiling somewhat of a mini brag book of what your colleagues and supervisors have said about you can provide an added sense of credibility to you as a candidate.
We’ll strategically compile excerpts from LinkedIn recommendations, formal letters of recommendations, kudos emails and performance appraisals to create a strong recommendation page to strengthen your self-marketing toolkit.
“You are a gift from God and the best investment that I have made. I got the job with a company I have been stalking. (LOL). Melanie L Denny provided me with a stellar resume and overall exceptional experience. She is a gifted writer and it did not matter that this was conducted over the phone. It felt like a call to a friend who just told your career history. 5 stars in every aspect.”

Thank you so much for saving my life lol. I had been at the same job for the past 4.5 years. I was at the point where just thinking about going to my job would make me so sad and depressed.
I was so impressed with the way she had me sounding on paper, that I walked into that interview with my head held up and my confidence at an all time high.
The recruiter took one look at my resume and said “I have no doubt in my mind you are the perfect fit for our company”. Within 2 days, I received my offer letter and learned that I will be making double my current salary. I am so excited to start my new career and I could not have done it without her help. Thank you so much , you are truly amazing at what you do!!- Teresa Levy
