Elephant Writers A spotlight on your success.

In this economy, we hear many stories of people who have sent out their resumes hundreds of times only to be answered with silence. We can help!

The key to getting responses to your resume is giving your potential employers a reason to read it, not skim it.

Key factors can increase the chance that hiring managers will spend additional time reviewing your resume:

  • Key words: Hiring managers often look for very specific skills or experience. It pays to know what words to use.
  • Visual professionalism: You dress up for an interview, so it's only fitting your resume should be dressed up too.
  • Uniqueness: If your resume stands out from the crowd, it will be assumed to come from an impressive applicant.
  • Highlighting: Highlighting makes the task of reviewing your resume that much easier—creating a good first impression of your employability.

Our resumes use these guiding qualities to empower you in your job search and give you the best chance of success. And resumes aren't all we do—we also create and edit cover letters, craft personal statements, and offer many other types of writing services. Below are several examples of our resume styles, personal statements, and cover letters to give you a taste of what we have to offer.

When you order with us, you'll receive a confirmation email and then another short email when your order is placed with a writer. We guarantee both the delivery time and date selected and any specifications you've set on the order form.

Positive Outcomes Enhanced Resume Style Sample

One of our many eye-catching possibilities of resume styling. The Positive Outcomes resume highlights employment successes by default but can be reformated to suit any need. Like all of our resumes, it is available in any assortment of color choices or in shades of gray.

S-Curve Enhanced Resume Style Sample

The S-Curve resume style presents standard resume information in an interesting design and using unique common language headers. The S-Curve also uses its layout to ask the powerful question "Why Pick Me?" — right before the eye is guided to your name, calling the reader to action.

Speech Boxes Enhanced Resume Style Sample

The Speech Boxes resume focuses on clean square shapes to organize its content and uses a eye-catching color to make your name stand out. More conservative versions are also available, that reduce the color or use grayscale.

Messy is Neat! Enhanced Resume Style Sample

One of the key elements of the Messy is Neat! design is the highlighting. In addition, "messy" handwriting elements can contain personal notes to the reader or can be omitted entirely if you'd prefer a more straitforward design. Like all of our resume styles, the Messy is Neat! is available in a variety of colors or shades of gray.

Biographical Enhanced Resume Style Sample

The Biographical resume style's central element is a picture of you with a short blurb beneath it describing important accomplishments. If you'd like this design for your resume, you can email your photo to us, attach it to the order form, or mail it in. If you aren't a fan of yellow, the Biographical can be provided on white or any other color you'd like.

Standard Resume Sample

This is an example of one of our standard resumes. We have several professional looks even for non-enhanced resumes. As you can see, the layout of this style is highly organized and the line breaks make it easy to read.

The Qualities of an Effective Leader

Before and after Elephant Writers revised a personal statement for a job application.

After Our Revision

Describe the qualities of an effective leader you have known. Share at least two examples of ways in which you demonstrated similar qualities in your work, community involvement, education, extracurricular activities, etc.

Leadership is a trait that extends beyond delegation and transcends authoritarianism. As I see it, leadership is being a role model and influencing people through examples. The transformative power of a good example surpasses that of any dictatorship. In this tradition, I feel Gandhi was a great leader and an example of those qualities I seek to impart to others. He was a true believer in non-violence and had many efficacious ideologies that contrasted with the distant utilitarian calculations of the British rulers of India and in accord with this philosophy, he was able to free India from British rule using non-violent weapons, such as his mind. He, to me, is as an epitome of a true leader. People were ready to follow the path shown by Gandhi as they trusted in his leadership, not out of blindness, but out of the quality of the example provided and the eternal wisdom he manifested. This according to me is true leadership, letting people see what can be accomplished with thought and focus. True leadership doesn’t require heavy-handed authoritarianism but instead requires promoting an example for the people. This was strongly demonstrated by Gandhi’s leadership.

Teaching Position Cover Letter
