projectU is a 24/7 professional development platform and can be accessed by members at any time.
For our Mentor Happy 1:1 services, our writers and coaches work flex schedules between the business hours of Monday – Friday 7 am – 6:30 pm EST.
Phone conversations or video sessions with writers and coaches are scheduled on a first come first serve basis unless you are a rush client; rush projects are pushed to the front of our writing schedule with priority service.
When you purchase writing services from Mentor Happy, you’ll experience a highly collaborative process.
After your purchase, you’ll receive an email receipt and a link to complete your Wayfinder profile. Once your Wayfinder profile has been completed, our team will assign you a Certified Professional Résumé Writer and he or she will join you via phone on your scheduled day and time for your strategy session. After your session is complete, your writer will begin creating your new résumé or job search letters. During the writing process, you’ll have unlimited access to your writer via email.
If you purchase a résumé service, you’ll have one week to request two revisions once your writer delivers your completed résumé to you. The process typically takes one to two weeks in total for a new résumé and all letters are delivered as per the timelines described for each service.
If you’ve worked with a Mentor Happy résumé writer or career coach in the past, you can absolutely request to work with that same person again when you complete your Wayfinder profile. If you’re new to Mentor Happy, we will match you with the coach or writer best suited to help you reach your professional goals.

As an organization, we have been successfully writing résumés, providing career coaching and developing professionals just like you for over two decades.
Yes, our expert writers and coaches specialize in over 65 industries. We’re well-versed in current best practices and can translate experience from one industry to another.
Mentor Happy uses the expert knowledge of our Certified Professional Résumé Writers (CPRW), combined with feedback from résumé-scanning software called applicant tracking systems (ATS), to create your unique, custom résumé.
Companies of all sizes use ATS to filter applicants based on keywords and formatting, which is why your résumé needs to be ATS optimized. Mentor Happy writes accomplishment-based, keyword focused and ATS optimized content for your résumé. And, we analyze your résumé using ATS technology prior to sending your new résumé to you.
After purchase, you will receive an emailed receipt with a link to complete your Wayfinder profile and schedule your résumé strategy session. Mentor Happy will then assign your project to an in-house Certified Professional Résumé Writer, with professional experience in your field and career level. He or she will join you via phone on the date and time you schedule your strategy session.
After your résumé strategy session is complete, your writer will begin creating your new accomplishment based, keyword and ATS optimized résumé.
Résumés are delivered in 5 business days for a Résumé Build and 7 business days for a Targeted Résumé Build. After delivery, you’ll have one week to provide feedback to your writer, with up to two revisions. The process typically takes one to two weeks after your Wayfinder profile and résumé strategy session are completed.
If you purchase rush services, all timelines are accelerated based on the level of rush service you select.
The primary difference in a Résumé Build and Targeted Résumé Build is a targeted résumé is aligned to a specific job description you share with us. A Résumé Build is a general overview of your career history.
Both services provide a new, custom designed résumé that is ATS, keyword optimized, and accomplishment driven. Each will be professionally branded as well. During the process, you will have unlimited access to your writer via email and two revisions within one week of receiving your first draft.
However, we highly recommend a Targeted Résumé Build for most professionals. This résumé will clearly define your skills and capabilities as it relates to the position you’re applying to. The targeted content your writer creates will connect with the hiring manager, showing them exactly why your skills align with their needs.
Yes. You’ll simply purchase a Résumé Review.
After your purchase is complete, you’ll receive an emailed receipt which will contain a link to complete your Wayfinder profile, upload your résumé and schedule an appointment for your Résumé Review. We’ll then pair you with one of our Certified Résumé Writers.
At your scheduled day and time, your résumé writer will join you virtually via a screen share session where he or she will review your résumé and recommend changes. Your writer will email you a redlined version of your résumé after your review session. You can then choose to address the redlined items yourself or have your Mentor Happy writer do the work for you by purchasing a Résumé Build or Targeted Résumé Build.
And, if you decide to have your writer create a new résumé for you, your Mentor Happy Résumé Review includes a $50.00 coupon which can be applied to Mentor Happy résumé services for two weeks (14 days) after your completed résumé review.
At Mentor Happy, we believe career coaching is most impactful when you’re able to tackle a career issue and reach a successful end with actionable results. This typically can’t be accomplished in one coaching session.
Because more than one session is needed in almost every situation, we think the hourly approach to career coaching is stale and outdated. As a client, hourly coaching pushes the stress of determining exactly what problem you need to solve and how much time it will take with a coach to find success, on your lap prior to purchasing coaching time. Basically, it’s difficult to understand how many sessions you may need and exactly what you may get from the coaching program before you commit to the process when a simple hourly rate is charged.
Due to this frustration, Mentor Happy chooses to organize our coaching services to support specific goals; providing transparency to the process. We have outlined specific topics that each session covers to help you prepare for your time with your coach.
But, if you prefer a quick Q&A on a topic of your choice, you can still purchase individual coaching sessions to use as you wish. Providing you with both options puts you in the driver’s seat and allows you to get professional development on your terms!
To answer this question, you’ll need to evaluate where you are professionally.
Our 1:1 services are best if you have limited time, and need career development, coaching and résumé services quickly with little to no stress or work on your part. When you purchase 1:1 services our team will take complete creative control of your résumé and will guide you through the coaching programs you purchase via one–on–one phone or video chat sessions.
Our career development platform, projectU, is best if you are looking to continually develop professionally and are interested in learning how to write your own résumé and manage your own career. Becoming part of the projectU community allows you to control what you learn and how quickly you progress.
As a projectU member, you’ll gain access to locked career development content from an extensive library of videos, webinars, guides and how to’s. You’ll unlock the ability to join private live webinars and group mentoring sessions. You’ll have access to content and resources to help you learn how to create your own targeted résumé, targeted cover letter, targeted thank you note and LinkedIn profile. You’ll also learn about a variety of other professional topics including but not limited to, leadership skills, salary negotiation techniques, job search and interview tactics and managing work-life balance. Additionally, you’ll receive a 5% – 15% discount on all Mentor Happy 1:1 services (discount based on level of membership)
Still not sure what service is best for you, take our quiz!
Your Wayfinder profile is a tool we use to help better understand your career goals and professional path. The Wayfinder is a secure, online portal where you can upload your resume, job descriptions for targeted items and other career documents you’d like to share to support your professional development.
During the Wayfinder upload, we’ll ask you a few questions related to the services you purchase from us. We ask that you be as detailed as possible when answering your questions. Doing so allows your writer and/or coach to better understand you as a professional.
The Wayfinder process takes about 10 – 15 minutes to complete and needs to be completed in one sitting. You cannot save your progress.
You may notice we mention the Wayfinder on several products, but you only need one Wayfinder on file with Mentor Happy for our 1:1 services. Your Wayfinder profile remains valid and intact until you accept a new position. Should you accept a new job and purcahse services from Mentor Happy, you’ll need to upload a new Wayfinder at that time.
At Mentor Happy, we guarantee your résumé will meet all industry standards defined by the Professional Association of Résumé Writers (PARW) and Mentor Happy’s standard of excellence – A Player Career Enablement Professionals (ACEP). If during the process of professional correspondence or résumé writing you are not completely satisfied with your writer or the product delivered, please let us know and we will work to address your concern or assign a new editor to help you reach your goals. Please see our terms and conditions for more detail.
If you’ve purchased a career coaching service or a projectU subscription, we are dedicated to helping you with your specific industry and career coaching needs. However, because career coaching and mentoring can result in tough conversations that frequently require introspective participation, it’s important to understand successful coaching and mentorship requires your participation. We’re confident you’ll value conversations with your career coach and your engagement with the projectU career development platform. However, if your career coach just isn’t a fit for you, we ask that you simply request a new coach for future sessions you purchase. If you don’t enjoy the mentoring, guides, downloads and direction you receive from projectU, no problem. You can log into your account and cancel any time. Your projectU membership will not auto-renew after cancelation and your account will close at the end of the month you cancel. Please see our terms and conditions for more detail.
Because Mentor Happy and projectU services are based on the time it takes us to write and design creative content to help you, all sales are final. However, Mentor Happy writers will work with you throughout the revision period until you are satisfied with your résumé.
As a projectU member, you can log into your account and cancel at any time. Once canceled, your membership will expire at the end of your billing cycle and your subscription to projectU will not auto-renew after cancelation.
