Jerry in Cedar Park, Texas said: I'm in high-tech and the resume company consisted of 1 person who probably knows a lot about resumes but knows nothing about my industry. Make sure you get that info before shelling out any money. I think it's great to have some feedback on your resume. I changed my resume using advice on this forum. You should consider using a resume template. There's a few really good sources for creative resumes that contain example wording within it.
Search for "Resume Shoppe", they have some really great ones. A resume is a pretty simple document. It is basically a list of your final stage education and any jobs you have had plus any special skills. The most important thing is that your resume and cover letter do not have mistakes in them. We see a huge number of letters with mistakes in the first line.
These people will have their applications deleted. They are simply wasting their time applying for jobs. To save money prepare your own documents and get someone who is good at writing to give them a good edit.
WardResumes in San Diego, California said: These are crazy prices for most people. And you need to really look at the skills of the writers. We use people with a lot more experience than the average writer and we still don't charge anywhere near that amount. I personally charge slightly less than the average so I can remain competitive.
I can do that because the cost of living here on the west coast is a lot cheaper than the cost of living on the east coast. I am guessing this is why I pull so many east coast clients. Jennifer Best in Vancouver, Washington said: I was just giving the proper industry average I am sure you are worth it: It's just that resumes are such simple things to create and cover letters are even easier.
If you are a good writer then it does not take much time to create them. And a lot of writers simply use a template and charge a fortune for it.
Someone like Jennifer is obviously a real person with ethics and a reputation. Others are just out to charge a fortune and produce dubious quality work. I think you can always research how to write a resume yourself. All the information is out there even though you don't have the experience of a professional writer you know much better your field than any of them.
Just put in some of your time into it and I'm sure anyone can write their own resumes. Here is the link typicalinterviewquestions. Hope that helps guys. Daniel Lomartra in Ithaca, New York.
You could easily end up with rubbish and have to pay someone else to start again Thank you for the kind words. We are just currently in the process of becoming independent. We have done hundreds of resumes and still maintain a 4. Furthermore, we have a money back guarantee. Simply inform the editor that you worked with that you are unsatisfied and we will either work to resolve the issue or simply refund your money.
I thought about having someone write mine but I found this link and decided to do it myself. I do believe it is better to write your own because only you know yourself best:.
First, it is impersonal. They ask you to forward adjectives about yourself, and jobs you are seeking. Then your resume is written from an obvious template. It is useless, full of misspellings, and inaccuracies. The inaccuracies can range from dates, to experience that is left out, and disjointed sentences.
D- work in high school. You're not getting your money back though. Here is the best part, on the third attempt to get the resume up to a standard I would want to present myself, I am unqualified for the jobs I am seeking, and that is why they cannot help me regardless of how many times the service rewrites my resume to get it write. More important than a resume is believing in yourself, because there are many companies and one 1 of you. GPD in Lakeland, Florida. Daniel Lomartra in Ithaca, New York said: Great info-think this is what I will try first.
My brother went to Cornell - so, I feel good about that connection. Will report results back to this forum. Did it increase recently? Still a great value! Thanks for all the great advice on this thread. After struggling to write my own resume I finally realized I need some help.
I'll be checking out the recommendations here. Angella in Edmonton, Alberta. The problem is - and I do agree that you know your abilities best - it can sometimes be difficult to objectively view yourself. I am tentatively branching out into resume writing after years of reviewing resumes both professionally and for friends. I prepared my own resume obviously and get great response and compliments on it. I doubt a resume writing service could improve upon that.
Having said that, after years of reviewing others resumes I have found that often they either don't identify what is great about themselves and it can be like pulling teeth to get that information from them , fill their resumes with inconsequential fluff that completely buries the relevant information, use words that convey a lack of confidence in their abilities or send out resumes that, even when you read from start to finish, you reach the end and still have no idea what they are capable of.
And don't even get me started on the objectives! Everybody wants to "get a great job where they can use their skills and experience for the employer's benefit". Resumes have seconds to get the reviewer's attention.
Every single word needs to be targetted and relevant, or it's taking away from what is important and relevant. And that includes your objective. Personally, I hate objectives - but that seems to be what is looked for now, so if it must be there I am in the camp that, yes, if you can do it yourself definitely do so! But most people just can't. Also wanted to mention - when talking to a potential resume writer - that resume writer should be able to tell you exactly why your resume is not getting results.
If they cannot, then they are merely resume reformatters and unlikely to have any real results. James in Seattle, Washington. Pacenit in Powell, Ohio. Yes I used TopResume they suck don't ever use them they say that will do every thing for you but once they get your money it all over!!

Practically anyone can create a good-looking resume these days, what with computers and laser printers doing the aesthetics.
That's fine for the first 7 seconds that an employer takes to scan your paperwork. But then comes the closer reading, and pretty paper alone won't land the interview. The employer will be looking for credible details in your resume to back up the demands of the job opening. That piece of paper will need to persuade him that you just might have something to offer. To make that persuasive case requires not only writing skill, but an insight into management and business that most resume writers simply lack.
To that end, we value resume writers who are certified in their profession, and steeped in industry experience. The former, not because certification is the be-all and end-all, but because it provides the assurance of at least a minimal level of resume writing expertise. Since literally anyone can hang up a shingle and call themselves a resume writer, it's nice to know that a writer with the designation of Certified Professional Resume Writer CPRW is one who has demonstrated a certain knowledge, talent and writing expertise.
Beyond the writing certification, industry exposure is critical for the resume writer to be able to flesh out your particular experience and abilities, and then translate that into the language that taps the needs and desires of the hiring official. We are particularly impressed when a resume service is able to pair the client with a Certified Professional Resume Writer of similar occupational background. We're former resume writers , ourselves see " Who We Are ".
After ten years in the business, you learn a thing or two about writing a resume. Like how to draw relevant information out of a client.
Like how to put that client's best foot forward on paper through subtlety of language. Like how to use design and layout to marketing advantage. It drove us a bit crazy at times because we're perfectionists. Though we're no longer writing resumes, those job skills, that perfectionism, is still there--and we look for it in other professional resume writers. Most of the time, sadly, we don't find it. When we do, we sit up and take notice.
I think it's great to have some feedback on your resume. I changed my resume using advice on this forum. If your going to get a good resume writing service, I .
