Our team creates a resume that effectively highlights your skills and experience in a beautifully designed, online search-ready document.

Our resume services start with a resume review. We provide you with a comprehensive resume questionnaire to guide the process, so we can learn about your achievements and discover how they relate to your career goals.
You detail your work experience, what you want from a career, why you’re on a career search, examples of jobs you want and what you consider to be your most significant career accomplishments. This information informs your new resume creation.
We run your current resume through Applicant Tracking System (ATS) resume testing, to identify formatting and copywriting issues that may be negatively impacting your resume’s visibility online and its effectiveness with hirers. These include:
- Spelling errors
- Overused words and repetitiveness
- Use of passive voice
- Clarity issues
- Keyword optimization
In addition to identifying issues like these, we determine if you have skills that are missing from your current resume that should be added to your new one. You may be missing complete sections but have the background to fill them, which could help in your career search.
We then optimize your current resume to best reflect your skills and accomplishments. We position your experience in a way that’s most relevant to your current career goals. Using search-optimized keywords that align with your experience and your desired position, we build a new resume designed to:
- Be found online by recruiters
- Retain attention once it’s viewed
- Result in an interview for the position you’re applying for
You’ll also receive instructions on how to update your resume as you apply for different positions.

Why You Need a LinkedIn Profile
If you’re not using LinkedIn, recruiters may not find you. If you apply for a job and lack a LinkedIn profile, you may not progress in the interview process. Today, hirers view LinkedIn profiles as closely as they do resumes.
LinkedIn may work similarly to other social networks like Facebook, but posting the wrong content on LinkedIn looks bad to hirers. An optimized LinkedIn profile:
- Captures attention and ignites interest
- Is optimized for online search, using keywords that relate to your experience and the jobs you want
- Qualifies you as a candidate for your ideal positions
According to Hootsuite, LinkedIn’s growth has outpaced Facebook’s and Twitter’s since 2016. The recruiters you want to reach are on LinkedIn. So are the candidates you’re competing with for the position you want.
HiConsulting LinkedIn Services
LinkedIn gives you the opportunity to connect with peers in your industry and hiring managers. Your LinkedIn profile provides a powerful first impression of who you are as a job candidate. Make sure you’re making the right impact with your LinkedIn profile.
HiConsulting Services will examine your current LinkedIn profile to alert you to issues that may be impacting your job growth. These could include:

We use insights from you, as well as your resume and past experience, to create a LinkedIn profile that hirers respond to. We position your experience, achievements, qualifications and skills in an effective LinkedIn profile. Your LinkedIn profile becomes a valuable extension of you as a job candidate. It can help you land your next dream career role.
If you are new to LinkedIn and need a profile, we’ll build a complete profile for you that gets you seen. Using keyword optimization, your LinkedIn profile will be search-friendly for recruiters and will portray you compellingly as a candidate to hirers you may be interviewing with.
Cover Letters, Thank You Letters, Resignation Letters, Pro Bios & More
Written communication is an important part of most jobs today. If you communicate with clients, coworkers or your boss through any type of email or writing, your employer will want to know you’re a competent communicator.
A cover letter makes a powerful impression for how you communicate. A 2019 study by The Ladders found the majority of employers require a cover letter from applicants. Even when a cover letter isn’t required, sending a personalized cover letter with your resume may help you stand out among applicants.
HiConsulting Services provides cover letter copywriting services, consultations and personalized recommendations. According to a 2019 report by CNBC, you should never send a cover letter that is generic or that simply restates what’s already on your resume. If you’re applying for a job through a personal referral, or you have a previous connection with the company you’re applying with, a cover letter is essential. If you’re going after your dream job, you should use a cover letter to convey your enthusiasm and passion when applying.
Don’t risk sending a cover letter that is boring or that has been recycled. Hirers and recruiters see through this. That makes a bad impression. Contact HiConsulting Services for cover letter assistance. We also offer additional copywriting services for thank you letters, resignation letters, professional biographies and more.
