Editing Sample – Résumé

The three clickable images below will open new browser tabs, each displaying a full-size pdf file representing one of the three stages of my résumé editing process for this particular client.

To protect my client’s anonymity, I have changed her name and contact information, some of her employment locations, and the titles of her publications.

My process was simply to first complete a copy edit of the client’s original draft, then, after approval of my edits, to reformat the résumé into a more visually effective and pleasing final version.

Original Draft
