The Professional Edge Résumé & Business Services serves clients in Kansas, Missouri, and throughout the United States. The Professional Edge has enabled thousands of clients to reach new levels of career advancement and gain the confidence needed to pursue their professional dreams. If you strive for excellence in all that you do, we have the résumé writing expertise to skillfully craft your career documents by highlighting your valuable contributions, proven capabilities, and the depth of your professional background. Our two-hour telephone consultations, strategic questions, powerful content, quality writing, keyword usage, and high-impact designs will increase your job search outcomes. 

​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 exciting openings. Reviewing these documents will allow Nancy to gain valuable insight of your experience, achievements, and the qualifications presented by your target company. If you have identified a specific position, your résumé will be written and designed for that role or a similar job. Secondly, key information will be included to increase your chances of passing applicant tracking systems (ATS). Once your résumé is read by an applicant tracking system (ATS), it will win over human resource managers. Not all clients have an existing résumé. In that case, you will receive a résumé questionnaire and Nancy will obtain your content, accomplishments, and soft skills during your two-hour consultation.


When you hire The Professional Edge Résumé & Business Services, you will receive three versions of your résumé or curriculum vitae and cover letter. The first version is a professional presentation résumé containing impressive design elements. This high-impact version should be used to attach, print, and present to hiring managers, recruiters, and professional contacts. The second version contains the same strong, achievement-focused content, but is intended to work well with applicant tracking systems (ATS). Some of the specialty features are modified and eliminated to ensure that your résumé or CV and cover letter will scan well and be read by a recruiter or hiring manager. The third version of your career documents is a stripped down plain text design that allows clients to copy and paste their résumé into an online application or job site. Fortunately, most job sites and company websites accept ATS-friendly résumés, but it is important that you receive all three versions.

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. There are no additional fees for fast document delivery because we understand the importance of timely execution and exceptional quality that professionals demand and deserve.

Whether you are actively pursuing a new career or wish to explore rewarding professional roles, it is important 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. As a result, Nancy 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, Nancy is 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 wonder if 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 and job announcement so Nancy 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 need a one-page high-impact networking résumé to present to talent agencies, agents, television stations, broadcasting companies, distribute at job fairs, or add to a LinkedIn profile. Your high-impact résumé may include your logo, photo, custom designs, and portfolio or website links. All Professional Edge clients receive a professional presentation résumé, which includes shading, borders, bullets, and other graphic features.  However, our high-impact networking résumé contains additional impressive graphics and design elements that serve as an effective career marketing brochure.


Our high-impact networking résumé services include a telephone consultation and quality writing, in addition to a specialized high-impact design submitted as a PDF document. Certain industries are better suited for a one-page high-impact networking résumé. As a result, please contact The Professional Edge to determine if you need to receive this version or add it as a supplementary career marketing tool. Links to Nancy's high-impact networking and professional presentation executive résumés are included on the "Credentials" page.


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. Nancy is 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 your target role.
