Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Pro Resume's Made Easy by Andrea Drew

How To/Non Fiction/Career 
Date Published: 9/30/2012

Written by a professional resume writer of 15 years, this book takes you through the step by step process to write your resume and cover letter like the Professionals do it – at a tenth of the cost!  Contains samples and examples to assist you along the way, along with a free resume critique with every book sale. 

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
Absolutely.  Love it although the white picket fence isn’t quite as anticipated - it’s hard work.  I know society thinks I roll around in piles of money but the truth is the real work starts once the writing work is done.  I’ve spent more time marketing than I have on the actual writing!

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
I find there is often more work in editing than writing.  The creative side of things I find more fulfilling when there is a clear flow from me to text.  The editing does tend to do my head in

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
Peter Bowerman has been pretty inspirational.  As has Pete Godfrey – both Copywriters.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
Editing my third book and I’ve already started on a Young Adult/Fantasy novel with my teenage son.  He’s doing the brainstorming and we worked on the plot and characters together – it was so much fun for two creative nuts – plus it kept him off the computer for a couple of hours and he asks about my progress each day – so good way to stay on task!

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
Absolutely! Just finished Death Du Jour by Kathryn Reichs.  I practically devour her books – I love the flawed nature of her main character Tempe, and obviously so do all of the other thousands of her readers.

#8 – Public School or Home School? Public School

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate? – COFFEEEEE (not that I’ve had too much cafeeine or anything)       

#10 – eBook or Paperback? Paperback all the way – I’m a bit sad in that I love the smell of a new book and opening up the new book – ah!

Andrea started her professional resume writing career in 1998, forming a professional resume writing service online for all professions.
In April 2011, she successfully transitioned the business over to new management, in order to focus on her specialty niche, IT professionals, Executives and Managers.
Well, in Andrea's words "Executives and Managers are accustomed to collaborating to produce cutting edge results, and so are professional in their dealings enabling a unique and top class result and enabling me to write even better career marketing documents."

This doesn't mean that if you are not an executive or Manager she can't help you.  It simply means that unless you understand this is an investment and will involve some work on your part (providing the information needed) then it's probably best you look elsewhere that's all.
