“I can’t say enough good things about Science Refinery.”

Here’s a testimonial from Melissa Harris, a postdoctoral researcher in Madison, WI:

If you’re like me, you find writing cover letters to be a difficult task. YouMelissa worry whether your enthusiasm for the position comes off sounding flat or hackneyed, and you may have a tendency to undersell yourself. You know there’s no room for this when you’re after that awesome job! Enter Lauren Meyer at Science Refinery. Lauren did an amazing job helping me highlight my strengths and effectively articulate my interests in the cover letter for the science job I was applying for. Part of what made Lauren’s help so fantastic is her wide knowledge of the many scientific methodologies and techniques I use in the lab, which she drew upon to help me market these skills. She also expertly edited my cover letter and resume to keep my writing concise and to the point, and she found all those nitpicky spelling and grammatical details that really matter if you want your writing to have a positive impact. In the end, my application looked professional. I was extremely satisfied with Lauren’s service and proud to submit my application. I can’t say enough good things about Science Refinery.

“Overall, really a terrific experience.”

Dr. Nestor Matthews at Denison University in Granville, OH submitted this video testimonial about his experience working with Science Refinery on his video lectures*:

Here’s the core of what he said: “I was very impressed. What I found was that the feedback first came to me very quickly…but most importantly, the quality of the feedback was just terrific…Overall, really a terrific experience from the time I requested the quote to the time I actually made the payment (which was very easy to do). So they were easy to do business with and they provided some great feedback. I highly recommend to you Science Refinery.”
