Editing & Feedback: This professional editing service provides a comprehensive, detailed edit and proofread of your cover letter together with equally comprehensive, detailed feedback. The editing includes streamlining your writing and ensuring your word choices are compelling and engage whoever is reading your cover letter. The feedback identifies any item needing improvement that goes beyond the scope of editing, covering both writing and content, and including any details to be added to make your cover letter more successful.

The Editing & Feedback service for cover letters includes two rounds of review.

Proofreading: Our Proofreading service provides detailed proofreading only (e.g., spelling and punctuation errors). It does not include editing or feedback.

Our turnaround times are two business days with Normal Delivery and one business day with Rush Delivery. Turnaround times are per round of review.


Two features characterize the perfect cover letter. First is attention to detail. The second is choosing the right tone.

Attention to detail takes several forms. It comes in the form of demonstrating a detailed understanding of the position you are applying for, and not just generally, but specifically at the organization where you seek to fill the position. It comes in demonstrating a deep understanding of the mission, vision, culture and values of the organization, as well as any other details that make the organization unique. It comes in demonstrating an accurate and comprehensive self-assessment of your fit for the position and the organization, and the organization's and position's fit for you.

It also comes in ensuring there are no spelling, punctuation or other proofreading errors in your cover letter.

Choosing the right tone is an extension of paying attention to detail and should be tailored to the position and the organization where you are applying. The right tone starts with a balance between confidence and humility. It is also often being able to work independently within a team environment and with a team-first attitude. It means portraying trust and reliability, often together with empathy and kindness. It means conveying to the hiring manager that you are a focused professional with a demeanor that will edify their organization if they choose you to fill the position.

DLA's editors are well experienced at ensuring you demonstrate attention to detail and the right tone to achieve an expert cover letter.

  2. Next, select your project type (Cover Letter) and service (e.g., Cover Letter Editing & Feedback).

  3. Now upload your file to be edited, or skip uploading a file if you would like only a quote. The fee is a flat fee and the turnaround time displayed is for one round of the service.

    To purchase a service, upload your file to be edited, if you have not already done so. We accept MS Word and PDF file types for the Cover Letter file to be edited.

  4. To finalize your quote, select Normal Delivery or Rush Delivery for your delivery option.

  5. Confirm your quote. To order the service, ensure you have uploaded a file to be edited, add any comments, enter a project nickname and click Add to Cart.

    If you would like to purchase additional services (e.g., for your personal statement), repeat the above for each service you wish to add to the cart.

Step 2: Check out

Once you have added all the services you wish to purchase to the cart in Step 1, proceed with clicking Checkout.

In the checkout process, you will:

  1. Log in to your account or create an account if you do not already have one.

  2. Enter your goals for the service(s) you are purchasing.

  3. Verify the delivery dates for the service(s) in your order. If you are purchasing multiple services, you can customize the order in which we complete them.

  4. Complete your payment for the deposit, which is the total order amount. We must receive the total fee up front before we begin our work. We accept credit/debit cards and PayPal.

Step 3: Track Your Order in My Account

As soon as we receive your deposit, we will start working on your order. While we are working on your order, the status will display as In Progress in My Account.

Step 4: Receive Your Edited Cover Letter

As soon as we have completed our editing, you will receive an email notification, and the status of your service will be updated in My Account. If there is a remainder due, your next step will be to pay it to receive your edited Cover Letter.

Edited documents are released once the total fee for the service(s) in your order has been paid. Edited documents are both sent by email and made available for download directly from My Account.

The email containing your Cover Letter will provide the name and contact information of the editor who completed the service for you. It will provide a link to instructions on how to review our edits, including how to accept and reject track changes and to remove sidebar comments.

The email will also provide a link for submitting your edited Cover Letter for a free or discounted second edit, depending on the service you have selected.

Editor name and contact information along with the second edit link will also be posted in My Account.

Step 5: Follow up With Any Questions

If after reviewing the edits made to your Cover Letter you have questions about our recommendations, please contact your editor directly by email. You may expect to receive a response to your email within 1 business day.

If after following up with your editor, you still have questions your editor is unable to answer, feel free to email our editor in chief, David Lombardino.

Step 6: Leave Us a Review

We are passionate about helping you achieve your goals, and hope through our editing and answering any follow-up questions we will have helped you get one more step closer to doing so. We are proud of the work we do and would love it if you shared your honest experiences, positive or negative, for future clients to see.

We partner with TrustPilot, a third-party review service that sends email invitations to leave a review to all verified customers a few days following completion of the service. We hope that if you have any concern remaining when you receive this invitation, you reach out to us first so we can address your concern, prior to leaving a review.

Our goal is a five-star experience for every customer, and we look forward to achieving this for you.
