Hello. I’m Alan Farber, a job coach with 25+ years' experience writing resumes, academic CVs, cover letters, and Linkedin profiles for new and seasoned professionals.
In addition to working as a freelance resume writer, I was a university career counselor/associate director (Northern Illinois University and University of San Diego), and currently work part-time as a career counselor at UNC-Chapel Hill Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.

I applied to many jobs with my own resume but came up empty. After having a new, professional one done by Alan, I got a job!!
Registered Nurse / Lemont, PA
Hello Alan. Thank you for your help with my resume and cover letter in December. I had applied for that particular position several times and had never received an interview. I used your resume and cover letter this last time and I got an interview - AND the job! Thank you again for your help.
Social Worker, Galesville, WI
I have a BA in English and had assumed that writing my own resume should be no problem. I was wrong! Letting Dr. Farber take the reigns made me see myself through a new set of eyes and in a fresh set of words! Well worth the price!
Hospital PR Director / Milwaukee, WI
Alan is a true professional and I highly recommend him for his services. He has your best interests in mind and provides unparalleled support throughout your job search. Thank you so much for your help!
Account Manager / North Huntingdon, PA
The hiring manager said this was the best resume he’d ever read!
Sales Associate / Seattle, WA
The resume looks fantastic! I greatly appreciate all your work. It has truly exceeded my expectations and I am thrilled that I chose to make this investment.
Business Owner / Roanoke, VA
I just wanted to say thank you for the work you did on my resume. I was offered the position that I applied for and I believe the resume helped me obtain the salary that I desired as well. Again thank you, and I will definitely, recommend you to others who are looking for this type of service.

Alan, I got your name from a good friend, Cindy ____. You will be happy to know she is employed and ecstatic. Would you please look over my current resume?
General Manager / Yonkers, NY
Alan reworded my resume and cover letter very professionally and the revisions highlighted my strengths. He also gave me some extra pointers on how I can position myself better using LinkedIn. Thanks a lot!
Teacher / Savannah, GA
I’m very satisfied with the work that was done. Dr. Farber went above and beyond by offering insight outside of the scope of the job. I will definitely look to him in the future.
Technical Support Specialist / Birmingham, AL
Alan was a joy to work with. He was extremely responsive and offered help above and beyond what was expected. I would highly recommend Alan for your resume / CV / editing / reviewing / or academic projects.
University Administrator / Houston, TX
Alan exceeded all my expectations. His communication during the project was superb, and I don't say this often. I felt like my job was a priority as he responded to all my messages within an hour or two and with substantial thought put into the responses. His fees were more than fair, and his turn around time on the project was fast, as promised. The finished product was very well written, and he provided me with feedback that will allow me to create my own cover letters in the future.
Accountant, Des Moines, IA
Alan, it's been a pleasure working with you. Thanks for being, quick, honest, and super helpful.
