Part I: Cover Letter

After completing a custom cover letter based on the resume module, we will perform an in-depth copy edit to ensure that it is cohesive, grammatically correct, and includes all information a potential employer will look for.

Part II: The Master Resume

We will rework your current resume so that it gets past Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), be approved by the recruiter or screener, and piques the interest of the hiring manager. Our resume re-work includes the correct formatting, organizing, and highlighting of your skills and experience. Your newly formatted resume is accompanied by job summaries that contain all the tasks, duties, technical skills, and more that are associated with the positions you have held. These summaries are crucial tools in developing your resume as they contain the terminology necessary to get your resume past the screening of the ATS.


"During our conversation, I learned what a master resume was and how it would be a better fit for my ongoing job search needs versus a classic tailored/one off job specific resume. Jason explained to me that while the Master Resume would require more of an investment of time on my part, I knew Jason had my best interests at heart when he explained the process and assured me that working with both him and his colleague would really benefit me in the job search game. He was absolutely correct!

Jason is super knowledgeable with resumes and how to play the game of finding a job. He and I really connected and I knew I had made a good choice for my resume & LinkedIn needs. Thanks for the insight, Jason — your Master Resume process has both helped me now and set me up for success in the long-term!" - Tony V.

Part III: Job-Specific Resume

Once we send back the master resume and a finalized copy has been created, a tailored resume is then possible. You will find the perfect job posting for you, clone your master resume, and delete content you feel isn’t a fit. From there, our certified career coach will finish condensing, editing, formatting, and perfecting the content of your tailored resume. They will also include any feedback, suggestions, or ideas to help improve your perfectly tailored resume.


"After speaking with a member of Jason’s team, I decided I wanted to pursue not only resume writing services but also their e-course on that Jason and his colleagues had developed. I’m really glad I signed up for the course as the wisdom Jason shares is expansive and very helpful! I learned a lot from the e-course and strongly recommend others take it, too. I recently landed a great position—so thank you Jason & Sound Advice!" - Angelo A.

Part IV: LinkedIn Profile Update

With a finalized master resume, our staff will repurpose its content and polish it within your LinkedIn profile. We will fill out all areas of your experience, education and skills, as well as complete your summary, update your background photo, thus providing you with a new, sharper web presence. With our profile update, you really will stand out from the crowd!


"I recently took Jason's online e-course on how to find your dream career and it was fantastic. Jason's course provided me tons of insightful information that I was able to put into practice immediately. If you are looking for help with your career I highly recommend you take Jason's course - you won't regret it." - Jennifer T.
