​If you have an existing résumé and cover letter, please send it to us prior to your consultation and include one or two target job announcements, if you have located some openings. Reviewing these documents will allow Nancy to gain valuable insight of your credentials and the qualifications presented by your target company. Additional information will be included in your graphic presentation and plain text résumé that will pass the inspection of applicant tracking systems (ATS) and win over human resource managers.


In order to meet client requests, all Professional Edge résumés and cover letters are submitted within 24 hours so you can begin impressing hiring managers and recruiters right away.

Whether you are actively pursuing a new career or wish to explore rewarding professional roles, it is advantageous to have a professionally written résumé to present to your contacts, prospective companies, and recruiters. In addition to possessing a powerful Professional Edge résumé, you will gain a new appreciation of your accomplishments that will hopefully inspire you to grow in all aspects of your career.


Federal positions, including openings posted on USAJOBS require federal résumés. Specific information must be included for your application to be accepted. Consequently, The Professional Edge will send you a federal résumé questionnaire containing basic information that will be included in your specialized career documents. During your two-hour consultation, critical details will be uncovered and highlighted in your Professional Edge federal résumé. 

The Professional Edge has experience creating effective federal résumés and cover letters that have been submitted to various federal agencies. As a result, we are dedicated to revealing the right content, qualifications, achievements, keywords, and leadership roles that each position requires. Clients have also hired The Professional Edge to assist with applications and produce short essays for federal job application packages.  


The Professional Edge Résumé & Business Services develops impressive curriculum vitae for a variety of industries. Occasionally clients question whether they should submit a curriculum vitae or a résumé to apply for a target role. The best way to solve this dilemma is to send The Professional Edge your current career documents so we can determine the right approach.

Over the years, The Professional Edge has crafted curriculum vitae and cover letters for physicians, attorneys, professors, administrators, and other professionals that resulted in national appointments and positions. An impressive curriculum vitae is essential to achieve unlimited success. Nancy knows the secrets that will help you secure an outstanding job and possibly launch a career with one of the top companies in the United States.



Nothing will ever replace a two-page chronological  or functional hybrid résumé that uncovers the depth of your professional and academic background. However, sometimes clients also need a one-page high-impact networking résumé to present to contacts, upload on LinkedIn, submit to specific companies, include in portfolios, and depending upon the industry, distribute to recruiters at job fairs. The Professional Edge creates professional graphic résumés, which are contained in our video below. However, a high-impact networking résumé includes additional impressive graphics and design elements that serve as a career marketing brochure. Our services include a telephone consultation, quality writing, in addition to a specialized high-impact design contained within a PDF file.


Certain industries are better suited for a one-page high-impact networking résumé so please contact The Professional Edge to determine if you need to add this new career marketing tool to your traditional résumé, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile.     


Cover letters are the only way to provide a proper introduction to prospective employers. They should always accompany a résumé or curriculum vitae revealing why you are the perfect candidate for the position. Clients frequently request a generic cover letter; however, a universal letter rarely produces interviews. Instead, Professional Edge cover letters are written for specific jobs. We are also skilled at developing networking letters created for target companies that do not have current job openings.


There are many important elements of an effective cover letter and Ms. Hedrick will convince hiring managers that you are the ideal candidate fully equipped to deliver exceptional results. The Professional Edge has developed thousands of impressive cover letters, résumés, and curriculum vitae that resulted in interviews and rewarding positions so let our proven writing skills help you secure the position of your dreams.
