Fantastic experience working with Heidi. She was extremely thoughtful in her approach and even brought to light elements of my professional background that had not occurred to me to highlight and other elements that were actually a distraction from the job I truly wanted to pursue. Her "intake interview" to start the process is very thorough and she takes copious notes that prove to be very insightful and useful - and in my case, especially beneficial in preparing a resume for a very unique opportunity. Heidi's service goes well beyond just creating a resume, as she guides you through considerations for other forward-facing components of the job search that are so important, such as the cover letter and LinkedIn profile. I highly recommend her!

When I found myself laid off in June of this year, it didn’t really come as a huge shock. Even though 2020 has been a year full of surprises, the idea of being unemployed seemed like a common event. I wasn’t really bothered by it at first. Two and a half months later – post layoff – the reality hit me. “I need to find a job”…. Then I started to panic. When I pulled myself together and got organized, I realized the job market was a lot more competitive this time around. My usual job-hunting activities were going to need a boost. I came across Heidi Howell Marketing after doing a search for “cover letter writers” and I decided to give her a try. I was a little reluctant at first, unsure about the value of re-writing my cover letter but I was curious to see what she could deliver. The end result, I was ecstatic about the document she produced. Not only was it clean and easy to read, I feel like it represented me in a way I could never quite describe with my own writing. Her interview process, as she got to know me and my job history, was helpful on so many levels. I felt empowered working with her and my confidence grew each time we corresponded. In the end, I can honestly say, being laid off was a huge gut punch, there is no way around that – the shame, the uncertainty – all of it. But meeting Heidi, working through her process, and receiving that final cover letter draft, I feel like it was exactly what I needed. Now, my confidence has increased, my motivation has returned, and I am totally ready to put myself out there again. If you are like me and have been laid off, if your confidence has taken a hit, or if you are simply considering a job change and maybe feel a little hesitant about taking the leap, Heidi is the remedy. Her professional writing is worth every penny, her work style is completely down to earth, and ultimately, I feel like she can be trusted to deliver an exquisite product for any professional writing project.

Working with Heidi was a game changer! I was uncertain about how to create a resume that highlighted my career development, achievements and ambitions. She was empathetic and knew just what to do. She was caring, professional, thorough – and at times worked very late nights to meet deadlines. Heidi got to know me through our conversations, which I enjoyed. She really took time to understand me and the roles to which I aspire. My resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile now truly reflect my leadership and accomplishments while representing who I am as a person. After receiving a job offer, many complemented my resume and some even said they enjoyed reading it during interviews! I highly recommend Heidi to friends and colleagues!

When I initially started to look for someone to re-create my resume I had list of about three people to contact. Heidi was the first person that I contacted and after speaking with her for about an hour I concluded my search and believed she would be the best person to get the job done. Heidi is extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and detailed oriented. She will have your best interest in mind when developing your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile. I highly recommend Heidi and I am completely impressed with the documents that she provided me. I now feel that I have the best foot forward while applying for jobs.

Heidi is a very professional, detail-oriented, personable, and dedicated person. This was the first time I needed to write a resume in many, many years and the time she spent on the phone with me to understand my work ethics, experience, and needs was above and beyond what I expected. Heidi came highly recommended and I am so glad to have spent the hours on the phone with her in order to complete my cover letter, resume, and references. She was very patient with my delayed responses and changes. I appreciated the "fun homework" requested in order to learn more about me and my goals!
I strongly recommend Heidi to anyone that is looking to have a high-quality resume prepared.
Thank you, Heidi! It has been a pleasure working with you and I will not hesitate to refer you to anyone looking to have a professional resume written.

Prior to meeting Heidi Howell, I used an online resume writing service to assist with consolidating, formatting and wordsmithing my resume and cover letters. The online service worked great for a while, but after making a few career changes in the Information Technology sector, my resume started to lose its direction.
I decided to use Heidi Howell’s career coaching and resume writing services to help refocus my resume. Heidi’s organized and professional approach was EXTREMELY helpful! She was very thorough and took the time to interview me, which was useful for her writing, but also gave me a chance to practice answering questions (for future interviews).
Great career coaching and resume writing, with the level of professionalism that Heidi Howell offers, is hard to find! I was very pleased with the outcome of my resume and cover letter. I would highly recommend her services.

If you've ever found yourself in a panic because you may be losing your job soon, you know how I was feeling the day I called Heidi. With uncertainty hanging over my head and the realization I'd been out of the job search pool for over 20 I knew I had to get a resume together and fast.
I tried to do some research on my own and saw that even the layout of resumes have drastically changed since my last job search. At that point I knew I needed a professional and good old Yelp pointed me to Heidi.
I can't begin to tell you how knowledgeable, professional, convenient and thorough she is. First off, all your interviews and be done over the phone so she can gather very detailed and specific info, how easy is that? She works late into the evening and on Saturday so there's always time for you to connect. Her expertise in the field is apparent from your first call so you know you're getting a good product.
Once the resume and cover are done, she sends you a draft and explains the editing to you so you can customize it for future jobs.
I could not be happier with the service and resume I received from Heidi. Her prices were comparable to other services I looked into and I feel I got much more personal service.
So if you're freaking out over the thought of a new career, just take a deep breath and call Heidi. Just like mom, she'll make everything better.

Heidi is conscientious, kind, absolutely professional, ethical, and works hard to achieve the desired outcome that she and I wanted. I am no longer wasting my time applying for jobs without a proper resume. I do not mean bullets, spacing and words, I mean a resume that tells the personal story of what I have to offer.

The resume and cover letter are an investment in my future. Compared to being unemployed, without job prospects, to having three responses in one day, yes, the cost is appropriate, and I find it amazing that she does not charge more.

Heidi is dependable; she got back to me quickly. She was there for me at every turn, with every response to every single question I had, no matter how insignificant.

Her work is excellent!! I find her ethical prowess in being completely forthcoming on a resume pushed up her quality of work. It is not just that she has skills for writing or formatting her work, it is that she cares what goes into it, and that it is completely accurate.

I have already recommended Heidi to my son, and a few other friends of mine in the same situation. I feel she is the best in her field. Everyone who knows me and my prolonged job search for the past few years, is so happy for me that I found someone who did not once again, claim to be an expert, and produce something mediocre.

Heidi is the best at what she does, the best that money can buy. Heidi looks into the person as a whole. I appreciate the time, attention, and hard work that pushes her way up the scale of good, best, and excellent work! I admire her on a personal level, and respect her on a professional level. She delivers what is promised.

Heidi did an amazing job with my resume and cover letter! I couldn't be happier with the final draft. Heidi conveyed all the good things about me, making me sound awesome! The way she works with people is fantastic. She personally talks with her clients and extracts information, then words things in such a way that brings out the best in them. When it comes to customer service, she kills it! Her service is phenomenal and she has a pleasant personality. The work she does is meaningful; she really helps people. The resume and cover letter she created will be very helpful to me going forward. Thank you, Heidi!
