What kind of clients do you work with?
Why should I hire a professional resume writer?
A well-educated and experienced professional should be able to demonstrate his/her abilities, highlight your accomplishments, and show how you will contribute to an organization in a new role. Your resume must market you as a winner capable of exceeding objectives and going above and beyond. If you’re looking to take the next step with an upward career move, your resume must convince employers that you are a TOP contender. Your career success could hinge on your resume. Are you willing to risk it with a resume cobbled together over the years? As an executive, it is likely that your career is lengthy and impressive and you’ve likely held $100,000+ positions as you’ve climbed the career ladder. Your brand, expertise, measureable accomplishments, career progression, and target are all essential in crafting a resume that is distinctive, value-branded, and generates the interest of board members, top-level executives, and recruiters. Resume strategy, industry-relevant keywords/search terms, and design factors must be considered in creating a resume that puts you in the lead. We know how to best downplay weaknesses, market your strengths, and craft a resume that is eye-catching and compelling. Your career success begins with your resume. Should you consider a professionally written resume an expense or an investment?
What is your turn around time?
After you select the type of resume/product you need and place your order for the package of your choice, you are:
- Partnered with a writer. Your writer sends you an introduction email, along with a client interview form/questionnaire.
- We ask that you send us your current resume and the completed client interview form/questionnaire. You will only be asked to respond to questions that were not covered on your resume. If you do not have an old resume, the client interview form/questionnaire will provide us with all of the information we need.
- Once we receive your questionnaire and completed form, you can sit back and relax. We will create a career-changing resume and send it to you in just 7 to 10 business days!
Some clients have emergencies come up and need the resume in a RUSH. No worries, we provide a rush service and can have your resume back to you in 24 hours. Note: there is an additional fee for this service.
