Yes. Your resume will be prepared by a professional resume writer with CPRW (Certified Professional Resume Writer) and/or NCRW (Nationally Certified Resume Writer) credentials.
Professional Affiliations:Our writers are full-time professionals who are serious about the field of resume writing. They maintain active membership in organizations including the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches (PARWCC) and the National Resume Writers’ Association (NRWA).
Years of Experience: Each of our writers has at least ten years of experience in writing, marketing, and graphic design. They are backed by proven success in preparing interview-generating resumes for job seekers from virtually every career field and industry (including engineering, high-tech, sales, retail, wholesale, logistics, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, marketing, entertainment, finance, law, science, insurance, and education — just to name a few). It takes time to learn what works and what does not, and we wouldn’t think of pairing you with a resume writer who wasn’t an expert in the field.
Academic Credentials: All of our writers hold bachelor degrees (most majored in marketing, communications, public relations, English, or counseling). The majority have earned master’s degrees. They receive ongoing training in resume writing/design and industry trends through participation in educational programs sponsored by PARWCC and NRWA.
Publications and Presentations: More than 150 of our writers’ resumes have been featured in ten career and resume books, including McGraw Hill’s The Career Change Resume: How to Reinvent Your Resume and Land Your Dream Job and JIST Works’ Professional Resumes for Executives, Managers & Other Administrators. Resume samples by our writers are also featured on leading websites including Monster, MSN, and AOL. In addition, our resume writers are frequent article contributors on such topics as resume writing, resume design, and job search strategy to business and national publications and leading career websites. Many are also featured speakers at national resume writing conferences and symposiums.
We stand by our products and back every one of our resumes unconditionally. We guarantee you will be 100% satisfied with the quality of your resume’s content, design, and strategy, or we will revise the resume at no extra charge.
Our current turnaround time is 14-21 business days from the time that we have all of your information. To do a resume properly, we devote hours to perfecting each document. We tend to have a waiting list due to the quality of our services, so please allow us sufficient time to prepare your resume. If your need is urgent, we can sometimes accommodate an expedited timeframe, so please ask at the time of ordering. Rush projects are subject to a priority delivery fee.
Absolutely. We don’t enforce a set number of draft revisions you are permitted. You will have ample opportunity to make changes to your document, and we are committed to your 100% satisfaction.
We make it easy to update your resume as your career progresses. All client resumes are kept on file at no charge, so when you need to add a new position, new credentials, or new skills to your resume, just let us know. You can send us a message when you’re ready to have your resume updated.
We honor all major credit cards — VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Credit card payments can be made using our secure server or over the phone at 800-203-0551.
Resume design/production is a tax-deductible job-search service if you itemize on your taxes. Exclusions apply, so check with your tax advisor to see if you qualify.
Call us toll-free at 800-203-0551 or send us a message. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
You will receive our proprietary Comprehensive Career Questionnaire (CRQ), which you may download and work on at your convenience. The questionnaire is designed to help get you thinking about your accomplishments. Many of our clients tell us the questionnaire proved helpful in preparing them for interviews, so completing the form is a useful exercise as you launch your job search.
After you return the CRQ, your project will be underway. The certified resume writer assigned to your project will review your responses, analyze additional materials (such as performance evaluations, reference letters, sample job postings), and follow up with you if we need additional information. You will receive your new resume in MS Word format via email within seven to ten business days (or earlier if you have made prior arrangements with your writer). From there, the resume is fine-tuned as you and your writer work as a team to make whatever minor revisions or adjustments are necessary. Your project is complete when you are 100% satisfied with your resume.
