Writing FAQs

Career Transition Writing FAQs -Holly Genser Career Coach

What writing services do you offer?

For job and career changers, I write résumés, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, web pages, and more.

For organizations and freelancers, I write web pages, email newsletters, case studies, socila media profiles, and more.

May I contact you between project meetings?

Yes! You may always email me with questions, materials, ideas, or other matters.

If a phone call is required, you or I may set up a time by email.

What are your writing fees?

Most projects are based on your specific needs and priced accordingly in a Writing Agreement. You can review and discuss the Writing Agreement before signing. There's no obligation to sign.

For my writing fees, see Marketing Services , Résumés and other Writing Services for job and career change, or Writing Coaching Services, depending on your needs.

How do I pay you?

I use PayPal. You can send me money from your PayPal account OR you can use it as a guest and enter your credit card information. PayPal notifies me immediately of your payment.

If we meet for an exploratory phone call, how long are your fees good for?

Fees stated in an UNSIGNED agreement are good for three months from the time of our initial discovery consultation.

If you didn't want to receive an agreement at the time of our discussion, then the fees stated on my website when we speak again are your fees.

Do you allow for writing project revisions?

For full writing services, I build at least two revisions into every project. Larger projects may have more. The number of revisions is specified in your proposal and final agreement.

You make all changes to your own writing if you purchase Writing Coaching Services.

Do you proofread projects?

If I am writing for you, I include my own proofreading and may, as needed, sub-contract for professional proofreading and editing.

If you are writing, I will refer you to one of contacts for professional editing and proofreading.

In the end, you are responsible for the final proofreading and accuracy of your writing and content. While others can help you or do work for you, only you can take responsibility for the quality of the final product. That is why you should review all work products carefully and specify any changes required. Then review them carefully again until the work is finished correctly.

What happens if I need changes to a writing project?

If your changes are within the original scope of the project agreement, then the changes will be included.

On the other hand, if they are beyond the scope of the project agreement, I will require additional payment to complete the work.

What if I need to cancel a writing project?

See my refund policy.

How do I get started with writing services?

The first step is to contact me to schedule a complimentary exploratory call. There's no charge.

We'll discuss your goals and concerns. If we both think we're a good fit to work together, I'll explain more about how I work and send you a quote with my fee for your project.

After we agree on the contents, you sign the agreement and email it back to me.

The project will begin after receipt of your first payment according to the schedule in the agreement.

Contact me today to schedule your 30-minute, exploratory call. I look forward to meeting you and learning about your needs.
