Welcome to Best Resumes of New York (BRNY)
Thank you for stopping by to learn more about my resume writing services. BRNY has been recognized as one of the top resume writing services in NY for more than two decades. I have been servicing clients from the Greater New York Area to, well, worldwide! But don’t just take my word for it. Read my client testimonials covering 25 years of client satisfaction!
But, It’s Not About Me. It’s About You!
As you read this page and navigate my site, you will get a good sense for who I am and what I have to offer. But, I want to know about you!
For starters, I will want to why you are looking to do your resume. For example, are you frustrated with your current job? Have you been stagnant and want to explore your options? Are you a recent graduate? Has opportunity knocked? Are you looking to change fields? Did you recently relocate?
I would also like to know what industries you have worked in/are currently working in, if you are specialized, and if you are transitioning; I would like to know if you are starting out, if you are restarting your career after being out of the work force for a while, and what your career goals are; and I would like to know and what best defines you and qualifies you for your next move.
I will also want to know what kind of work interests you, what you want to emphasize, and what your personality is like so I can consider it when developing your resume. If you want me to do your cover letter and/or LinkedIn, too, I will need to know what your “voice” is so the communications come across in an authentic way.
In addition to creating a profile, selecting the right keywords, and, like a good journalist, creating a backstory to frame your experience, I will need achievements. That is what we collaborate on: Your experience. Your backstory. Your achievements. I take care of the rest e.g. design, wording, and strategy. In short, we are a team. We collaborate on the process from the start. The resume is finalized when you are thrilled with the results!
My Global Reach
I opened the doors to Best Resumes of New York in 1993. Since then, I have been writing resumes, cover letters, and executive bios — and now LinkedIn profiles — for professionals on Long Island, in NYC, and worldwide. As a globally recognized resume service, I know firsthand that the struggle to prepare an outstanding resume is experienced on many shores because I have serviced clients from Canada, Australia, Italy, Sweden, Germany, The Cayman Islands, Panama, Taiwan, China, India, Israel, Jordan, and the United Emirates, and, of course, in New York City (NYC) and on Long Island for more than two decades — including corporate contracts.
Not All Resume Services Are Alike
It is important to know that I am not a resume mill. Nor do I outsource my work. I am a one-person resume service with a brick address in NY and a click address right here at bestresumesofnewyork.com. I will take the time to understand your career needs and will remain on hand as your career partner.
Best of all, if you have questions after the resume is finalized, I am always an email or phone call away and will not charge for my support (only for updates). You will never have to speak with a “virtual assistant” or login to a portal to reach me.
This is my business and I care about my clients – many of whom are still my clients after two decades and gladly refer me to their co-workers, family, and friends. I take pride in my work and have the experience and skills needed to develop great career documents.
After a preliminary consultation – whether by phone or email, I request that you complete a TAILORED worksheet that I create from your existing resume and our conversation. Many resume services skip worksheets. I like to do both a worksheet and a phone call. I am very thorough.
My turnaround time is 2 to 3 weeks, depending on your career level, how involved the resume is (for example, IT), and if you are ordering a cover letter and LinkedIn, as well.
Each of my services are priced separately. I do not offer “package deals” because my rates are already competitively priced. Yes, you can always find someone to do it for less. But, before you make your decision, compare their resume samples with mine. In most cases, you get what you pay for.
My Take On Things
Resume writing requires critical thinking and lots of creativity in terms of how the information should flow, what the messaging should be, and how the resume should be designed – from modest to modern (charts, colors, images, icons). Working closely with my clients, I am able to capture value beyond responsibilities, such as goals (career change, transition, advancing, returning or early career), communication style (conservative or creative) and challenges (employment gaps or limited experience),
When working with executives at the Director level and up, I place an emphasis on quantifiable achievements, executive-level core competencies, and the types of industries and business infrastructures headed, such as startup, early stage, high-growth, as well as turnaround, family owned or globally leading organizations. By illustrating these factors to a recruiter, my clients will have a career marketing tool that will grab the reader’s attention and be read with interest.
My Track Record of Success
Over the years, I can honestly say that at least 95% of my clients have attempted to write their resumes before seeking my assistance. I know they achieve success because they offer to give me testimonials and stick with me for years for updates and new services and refer me to family members, friends, and co-workers.
Aside from my credentials, you need to see the quality of my work. View the slideshow at my Portfolio page to get a sense for my creative, strategic writing style.
Prices range from $175 for early career (targeting first job) to $575 up Manager / Director level. Custom quotes are provided for VP to senior-level executives and IT professionals.
Let’s become acquainted! Give me a call at (631) 224-9300 (direct} so we can chat. Then you can decide for sure if I am the right resume writer for you. There’s no commitment. I am not “salesy” and will not make you feel pressured.
I hope to speak with you soon!
