Writer's Block is a career development initiative that aims to help those who may not have the resources necessary to increase their strength as an applicant. Since 2017, we've been committed to helping candidates advance by offering affordable resumes, cover letters, and other professional development services.

Writer's Block was founded on the principles of community, access, and "lifting as we climb." We believe that everyone deserves access to opportunity, so we stagger costs by level of experience, to increase equity and ensure that more candidates have access to the help they deserve. We serve a diverse range of clients, no matter the age, background, industry, level of education, or experience. We are committed to helping you "level up."

Karissa Parris,

The Relatable Recruiter™ 

After graduating from Binghamton University in 2014 with a Bachelor's in English, Karissa began her career in Youth Development, where she directed enrichment programs in her hometown, Brooklyn, NY.


During her time as Program Director, she noticed gaps in talent, which inspired her to obtain her Master's in Human Resource Management from Stony Brook University in 2017. Since then, she has championed Talent Acquisition, leading recruitment teams and developing  strategies to source and hire thousands of candidates at non-profit, private, and start-up organizations. 

As the founder of Writer's Block Resumes, she uses her skills and talents to help job-seekers improve their job search, and gain access to the opportunities they truly want and deserve!
