Business writing

paper and pen

In 2011, I registered the trade name, GailWrites, to launch a business that was primarily résumé writing. I had worked in human resources, and a big part of my job was writing job descriptions, so it was a natural progression. I completed a pro résumé writing class through American Writers, conducted résumé writing classes in my community and completed manifold résumés ranging from student interns to international CEOs. At the same time, I began ghostwriting copy for web marketing, which means you have probably seen my work on various websites though my name could not be attached to it.

As a full-time project manager for a global mobility company, I earned a certification in project management. Leveraging the proficiency I gained in business communications, presentations and document design, I transitioned from corporate life to full-time entrepreneurship and now enjoy creating, developing and managing a variety of writing projects. I also added book reviewer to my résumé.

I have a propensity to be super organized (to an obsessive degree, some suggest) and am blessed (or cursed) with a strong attention to detail (an asset or deficit depending on who you ask). In the course of working corporate and solo, I discovered that most people detest some of the projects in which I excel. If you need help in any of these areas, let me know:

  • Résumé development and rewrites; cover letters; LinkedIn profiles.
  • Online marketing content; copy for websites/blogs.
  • Business documents, including announcements, reports and presentations (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Google Docs).
  • Bios for graduate students and small business owners.
  • Proofreading and copy editing (AP style).
  • Process mapping (Visio).
  • Book reviews.
