The Writing Guru® serves board, C-suite, and senior executive clients at Fortune 500, private equity, VC-backed, and start-up environments, leveraging 15-20+ years of leadership experience. Our executive resume writing packages and services are detailed below. We strive to make it simple and easy for you to purchase a resume writing package and secure your project spot.
➣ Resume Formats: We provide our documents in both Word and PDF versions. We do not use graphs, charts, or other fancy components in our resumes. The key is for your resume to be simple and digestible. Executive recruiters (who often refer clients to us) like our simple and classic modern style.
➣ Turnaround Time: Since we do not outsource any work (no team or subcontractors), and due to very high demand for our executive resume writing services, our turnaround time ranges from 6-8+ weeks depending on our current project schedule. Please always ask about current timelines before making payment.
➣ Board Candidates: If you’re targeting a board seat, we recommend the Premium Branding Package + Bio for your board portfolio as you’ll need a resume, LinkedIn, and board bio.
➣ Resume/LinkedIn Updates for Returning Clients: Past clients who require updates to their resumes/LinkedIn profiles or are in need of re-branding for a career change, we price you at an hourly rate or a flat fee of 75% of original project cost, depending on complexity or writing time needed. Please inquire with us for more details.
✰✰ Fees for Our Full-Scale Resume Writing & LinkedIn Branding Packages ✰✰
Our resume writing projects span 15-20+ hours and they include full document re-writing (following a deep intake process), extensive branding, job/industry research, and strategy coaching to guide you for a digital age job search. Each strategy call is set for 60 minutes (1 hour) and we provide 90 days of unlimited e-mail support after the project is complete.

Please also review our Terms of Service before purchasing which details our process and policies.
As of December 1, 2023, non-legal VP/SVP/EVP executives were moved to the above pricing tier. This is due to the amount of interfacing we provide all clients and the value of our services. In January 2024, we will be releasing a live coaching session option for those who want more of a short-term engagement without the full re-write and elongated coaching process. More details are listed below.
✰✰ Power Your Brand™ Live Coaching Sessions – NEW for 2024! ✰✰
Due to numerous requests and heightened demand, we’ve launched this service for executive job seeker clients who want live proofreading, editing, and tweaking of their existing detailed resume and LinkedIn content without the commitment, tenure, and possible wait-time of a full-scale project.
Over the years, we’ve come across a number of executives whose resumes and LinkedIn profiles have the needed granular detail, but lack the structure and organization required for a well-marketed and branded document/profile. Our live coaching sessions offer the ability for a short-term project for those needing help with: (1) brand positioning advisory; (2) live proofreading, editing, and tweaking of existing content for better flow/syntax; and (3) stronger optimization for the digital age job search. The fees include review and preparation for the session but do not include any additional outside writing, editing, or strategy coaching.
Resumes and LinkedIn profiles must be current and complete with details about company insights, job functions, and achievements. Please email us to learn more. If we do not believe you are a fit for our live editing/coaching services, we will advise accordingly.
