» How long does the resume development process take?
The first draft of your resume is ready within 5-7 days from the Discovery call (i.e., client interview). Need the resume more quickly? Our rush services deliver the first draft in as few as 24 hours. The rush fee is $59 and please contact us for more information.
» Do you have experience in my line of work?
Our team of resume writers has experience serving clients of nearly every industry and occupation. Since each writer has a unique background and skill set, we’ll match you to the resume expert that is the best fit. It is rare that we do not have experience in your line of work, and if that occurs we will be upfront before getting started.
» Do you offer student or military discounts?
Yes! Please contact us for more information about our discounts for military service members/veterans and students.
» Are custom packages available?
Yes! We frequently design custom packages and off-menu options for our clients based on their unique needs. Please speak with us for more information and a custom quote.
» Will my resume writer be certified?
Yes, most of our resume writers are certified by a resume writing association. More importantly, our resume experts are accomplished and highly rated by their clients — and it’s not uncommon for a writer to have already developed more than 1,000 resumes across their career. We partner with only those who maintain our high quality, integrity, and client service standards.
» What will I need to get started?
After your no-cost consultation, we'll send you the invoice with a click-through service agreement and a web form to submit information about the jobs that you are targeting. Once these items are completed, your resume writer will schedule the Discovery call to collect all of the information they'll need to author the first draft of your resume.
» Can I start with the Essentials Package and upgrade later?
Yes! Many of our clients choose the Essentials package and then upgrade to Premium down the line. We'll simply invoice you for the difference between the two packages at that point.
» Will I need to complete a lengthy questionnaire?
Absolutely not! Although some services require lengthy questionnaires, our resume experts do the heavy lifting for you. Your writer will need only about 30-60 minutes of time over the phone, and may ask for additional information after the first draft is delivered. The more collaborative the writer-client relationship, the better the final product.
