A professionally written resume can make you stand out in the crowded pool of applicants – and that’s what you need. Did you know that the hiring person typically spends less than a minute looking at your resume, and he or she spends most of that time skimming over the top one third of your first page?
Today, a resume has to do more than summarize your work history. It needs to present a picture of you, selling your talents and skills in a way that makes potential employers want to schedule an interview. I want your resume to present your personality as well as your work history and education, and I also want it to look eye-catching.
Here’s how we will work together. You will complete a questionnaire in addition to sending me your existing resume if you have one. This is one of the primary ways I get to know you and your abilities. I cannot begin work until I get the questionnaire answers back and sometimes I need some clarification on your answers before I can get started. From that point, it generally takes me up to 5 business days to write the first draft. Your resume service includes the first draft and another round of changes. After that, it is considered final; extra rounds of revisions will incur additional fees. The majority of my clients only have small changes after their first draft.
Typically, it is $185 to $260 to revise an existing resume and $275 to $350 for a resume I need to create “from scratch.” I need to see your current resume to give you a fair quote. Factors affecting the quoted fee include resume length, if you are a student fresh out of school, length of work history, chosen field you wish to apply for, and whether you want a traditional or unconventional resume.
Combine your new resume with my custom cover letter and LinkedIn profile writing services for maximum results. Cover letters are $75 per letter; LinkedIn profiles, either a new one or revising an existing one, are $100.
