We know the job market is still tough and we know that some people don't feel like they have a friend in their corner. If you are struggling to find a job, we want to help by proofreading your resume for free. Our goal is to proofread at least 1,000 resumes for people who could use a hand. When we hit that goal, we'll see if we can keep going.
Our professional proofreaders will check resumes for:
- Formatting inconsistencies
- Word choice
- Sentence structure
Why are we doing this?
A better question might be this: Why don't more companies do things like this? We are in a privileged position and very much aware that many people helped us to get here. The least we can do is pay it forward by helping at least 1,000 people get on their feet.
