What is your experience?
We have been preparing resumes since 1988 and have created thousands and thousands of resumes over the past 20+ years. We have prepared résumés for a majority of the occupations in the U.S. economy from entry level to senior executive.
How does the service work?
We start with a Free Initial Consultation, which allows us to show you examples of our work, go over the preparer's background, determine the direction you want to pursue with the resume, and provide an accurate range of fees for the service the way you want it designed for you. This can be done in-person or by telephone.
Once you agree to proceed with the service, the first step is the interview or data collection. We will ask you targeted questions about your background to develop impact statements designed to market you. You don't have to spend your time typing information into a template on a website.
Once we complete the data gathering interview, we take the information and compose the document. This allows us to create the most effective format to display your background. We provide a draft of your resume by e-mail, fax, or hard copy and all changes that are made to the draft are included in the fee for the service. Since our focus is satisfied clients, there is no limit to the number of drafts until the final product is acceptable to you. We typically need only one or two drafts to complete the service. In some instances, we provide two or three different versions, at no additional cost, so the client can decide on the best version.
Will I be satisfied with your work?
We design the service so that you have final approval of the document. If the résumé is not producing interviews, we will review how you are using the résumé and make changes to it, at no additional cost, so that it produces results for you. Since we have been preparing résumés for more than 21 years, our longevity speaks for itself. Our total focus is the satisfaction of each client. Since we retain all résumés on permanent storage, many of our clients return over and over again to update their résumé when needed. About 35% to 40% of our annual revenue comes from previous clients referring their family, friends, and business associates.
What do I need to provide?
All you need to provide is yourself by telephone or in-person. We will do the rest.
Do I need an old résumé?
An old résumé will help with facts about your background, which will reduce your cost. However, it is not necessary since we create the resume by interviewing you.
Can you provide the résumé in a format that can be e-mailed?
We provide the résumé in an Acrobat Reader (pdf) format for e-mailing.
Can you print copies?
We have a high quality laser printer that produces excellent final copies.
Will my documents be permanently saved?
We will save your document, at no cost to you, should you need to update it in the future.
