Welcome, I’m Isha (it’s pronounced “eye-shah”) Thorpe! Originally from Brooklyn, New York; I’m now based in Los Angeles, California and I manage REVOLT TV’s website — I also own www.ishathorpe.com. Check it out!
Being a working media professional for some years now, I’ve been contemplating how I can help give back to younger, college students/grads who’re entering the workforce. So, I’ve decided to lend my editing talents to these up-and-coming stars and create a resume editing service.
According to Robert Meier, the president of Job Market Experts, “98% of job seekers are eliminated at the initial resume screening and only the ‘Top 2%’ of candidates make it to the interview.” In other words, almost all job applicants have resumes that don’t catch the hiring manager’s eye and are deemed unworthy of job consideration… no matter how talented the applicant may truly be. And to make matters more difficult, the average hiring manager looks at a resume for only five to seven seconds! Yikes.
As someone who was hired for over nine internships at reputable companies like Marie Claire magazine, NBC Universal, VIBE magazine; high fashion labels Moschino, Rag & Bone, etc.; and was hired as a writer at outlets such as Yahoo — all before college graduation! — as well as who’s hired staff at my current place of employment, I know what it takes to get your resume through that door for an interview for the job of your dreams!
It’s also worth noting that aside from REVOLT TV, I’ve also snagged highly competitive jobs at other major entertainment companies such as iHeartRadio, VH1, OK Magazine, Star Magazine, and so many more after college. Yep, my resume is the truth… and I want yours to be, too.
Resume editing services charge an average of $100 – $500. But, I won’t for my work because I remember being a broke college student/entry-level applicant at one point in time. So, for a huge fraction of those (unbelievably high) prices, I’ll help a new job seeker out by editing their resumes to perfection, in turn increasing their chances of getting hired at their desired employment destination.

“Isha was extremely helpful not only by crafting a perfect resume for my desired career, but she also took the time to thoroughly answer any questions I had. Isha’s insight on what makes a top-notch resume is invaluable and she tailored mine to showcase my best skills and experience for the job of my dreams. She even recognized field-specific skills that I wasn’t properly showcasing in my resume before.” – Lindsay Moran
