Florence, South Carolina (PressExposure) September 25, 2006 -- Although he is not known for creating fictional prose for movies or novels, Florence-based freelance writer Les Echols has used his formidable writing skills for a different purpose. For several years he has been helping Pee Dee residents find gainful employment by offering resume writing and editing services.
âDespite some positive trends, unemployment is still high in our areaâ, said Echols, who serves the unemployed in his role as a Career Counselor for Lake City One Stop. âMore people need effective resumes, the problem is they may not know that there is someone who can affordably do it for themâ, added Echols, who offers resume and other professional writing services through his website, http://www.lesechols.com.
Aside from resumes, Echols has offered his writing services to community organizations, and even showed his versatility recently by advancing to the finals of The Scribe, a local sports-writing competition. âPeople may not fully comprehend the benefits of a good writerâ exclaimed Echols. âJust as you would use a lawyer for legal issues or an accountant for finances, a professional writer can be called on for writing documents like resumes and business brochuresâ.
Echols says his next step is to offer writing training to corporations and creative writing courses to youth. âThe next generation will also need great writersâ, exclaimed Echols.
