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!! Angella in Edmonton, Alberta said: Most of the time, it's not the resume. If you were applying for a position as a nuclear engineer and you had a lousy looking resume, you'd get the job if they need your skills. Most of the time now, people are not getting jobs because there are far too many applicants and family and friends get to the head of the line.
I doubt their resumes are better. Pacenit in Powell, Ohio said: Pacenit in Brunswick, Ohio. You guys are bottom of bottom they will still not up date all of mine they keep telling me to do it my self!!!! Over the years, before I started preparing resumes myself I spent a great deal of time reviewing and revising resumes for friends and acquaintances. I have seen people go from not even getting a call back from employment agencies to employed in very short order after implementing the changes I suggested in their resumes.
While, yes, sometimes insiders get the job, in which case no resume is going to be good enough I've walked into more than one job where I knew before I walked in that the job was mine to lose before I walked in the door. I am, by trade, a non designated accountant who regularly goes up against designated accountants for roles - getting both interview and job offers.
Resumes make a huge difference in a competitive job market. Skills do matter - but so does the presentation of those skills. Marlene in Los Angeles, California. I think hiring a professional writer is going to be a plus factor in getting a job. If you have tried your best writing and rewriting your resume and still get no response from your employers, there's a big chance that the employer didn't even looked at your resume. Professional writers knows how to approach employers and make them take a look at your resume.
Now its up to you on how you are going to present yourself. Employers don't just look at the paper, they will try to intimidate yo and they will look at how you will respond tru your body language, how you answer to questions under pressure. Guys, where can i read some real reviews of the different resume-writing companies?
Just to know which one to choose. Pacenit in Englewood, Ohio. Burt Lange in middletown, New York. Alan David in Gold Coast, Australia.
You can do it yourself, just like doing your own tax return, but the chances are you won't achieve what you could with a professionally crafted resume.
True there are some "professional resume writers" that don't have a clue, but most do know what they are doing and achieve outstanding results. If you want a really good resume, at a fair price, check out www. Harpreet in Bellevue, Washington said: I will send you a inquiry. But you live in Australia. Would you have enough context about what employers look for in United States? Sure, a large portion of our work is from the US, actually, it is from all over the world.
We are up to speed with US resume requirements. Personally, I haven't lived in Australia for over a year, next week I will be in Arizona currently in Mexico.
I agree with you that no one knows you better than you but when it comes to applying your skill set to paper, I feel that it's best to allow a professional that has worked in the field for over 25 years. I have written resumes and placed over 20, people in jobs from all over the United States from the desk of my home and guaranteed at least three job interviews to each individual. I was also responsible for coaching each individual on what to expect question wise and how to respond with the answer the employer was looking for.
This field of work is not easy and all you have is your reputation on the line so you have to be the best at what you do. So, I guarantee my abilities to help you gain a strong career opportunity. I have gotten a lot of comments from managers about my resume. I've done a lot of freelance writing, and it would make no sense to let someone outside my field tamper with it. EconGuy in Cornelius, North Carolina. Yeah or you're in a pool of equally qualified people and probably not as socially favorable.
Despite what most people say looks and communications do matter.. EconGuy in Cornelius, North Carolina said: I would say being related to someone or being their friend trumps the looks thing. I've worked places where, suddenly, someone divulges how they are connected to some top boss.
Even heard one admit they grew up with one of the top bosses. You never know how someone is connected, but the favoritism is always there. Yeah my scenario was next in line to that. The best job I ever had I lost only to later find out the boss's cousin needed a job..
You can't even get that job anymore. I've also seen the relative and friend scenario bypass company policies.. Criminals getting jobs in public service companies with no-offender policies etc.. I actually know a guy right now with no work history and a long criminal record who gets job offers at least once a week without even applying..
I have a clean record, work history, and education and am stuck with unstable freelancing gigs that often don't cover.. I have been amazed at what liberties employees with connections take. Or how they are treated or given special privileges. The managers don't even care how it sets up bad morale.
I think a lot of women are really jealous of other women, so if they are getting a lot of attention, they won't want to hire another pretty woman. And that works that way too, if a woman is very competent. The star manager won't want someone under her who gets the limelight. You'd think the greedy CEOs or Presidents would put a stop to the waste of money created by politics.
We were all very impressed with the final product and would like to recommend your services to others in the future. Our sincere thanks to you, Marian! I am writing to let you know that I was the successful candidate for [a promotion at my long-time employer].
I am completely convinced that my new resume played a big part in my success. Not only was the resume itself impressive, but it gave me the confidence to interview well.
Our conversations, as we structured my resume, gave me a renewed look at how much I had to offer, and thus showed through as I answered the challenging questions posed by the panel. Thank you for transforming my career history in some real attention-grabbing goodies! Thank you also for alleviating a lot of my job search concerns. I now know that between the really strong resume you crafted for me and the job search tips you shared with me, I no longer worry about being unemployed for long.
I am so glad I found you! Thought I would spread the good news. Heard from my employer and got re-hired by them! So happy … and I have you to thank. Just thought I would drop you a line and let you know that I was able to find a position as Terminal Manager in Nova Scotia working for the Irving Group. Thank you for the wonderful job you did with my resume; it sure made a difference.
I know that because you provide a resume service, statistics are extremely important. Secondly, I posted my resume on Monster and was contacted for a position within 3 weeks of posting it. I love the resume and cover letter! I have seen resumes come through my desk and I have to say that this one is the best I have seen. I really enjoyed working with you! This resume means so much to me. You have captured my 10 years of experience at my employer and played it out beautifully.
I could not have done it without you! The very first time I sent my new resume and cover letter to a company, I secured an interview and landed the perfect job! Yes, it was that easy! Who would have thought that a proper resume makes all the difference in the world?
The Regency Group has the ability to present candidates in a positive manner. A good resume is a blueprint of who you are, and Marian was able to capture that — all over the phone! A lady called me wanting me to do a [position title] resume. She was willing to start from scratch with me.
I told her that I would not produce anything close to the calibre of what you produce, and since all she needed was an address change….
But what I wanted to mention here was the glowing report she gave me of your work. She said her resume was so very good and she was amazed at how quickly you could produce wonderful things in writing from just one point she would tell you. She was also extremely pleased with the resume you did for her husband and the position he secured with it, and that she had referred a number of people to you.
I just thought you should know. She raved, and I told her that I totally agreed. If I ever needed a resume, you would be the one I go to! I really enjoyed talking with you!! You are great at your work! Love the cover letter and the resume! Just over a month ago, you created my resume, and I start my new job! Frankly, I would have been thrilled to find a job in 6 months, but never would I have dreamed of success in just 1 month!
I LOVE the resume and cover letter you prepared for me. You have a great talent and blessed me with it. I met Marian as a result of an article in [five local newspapers] that featured her resume-writing business.
She wrote my resume, and I was impressed with the fact that even though I only applied to two positions, I received fabulous job offers from both. I would highly recommend her services, and she sets a shining example as to what Certified Professional Resume Writers represent. I think the resume and cover letter sound excellent! You did an amazing job, and I really appreciate your help!
The process was seamless — you walked me through all the stages of the resume, and before I knew it, you had a draft copy of my Executive resume and cover letter for me to review in my email inbox! However, the outcome was excellent and painless! I have since been picked for an executive-level role with a highly-visible non-profit organization. I would have no hesitation recommending you and your services to any of my friends or colleagues — best money I spent on ME in a long time!
Thank you for the great resume! As [my brother in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada] recommended you, I have asked our sister to contact you for her resume also. I wanted to take this moment to thank you for the superb work that you have done with my resume and cover letter.
I visited your website by mere surfing of the web and the transformation began. The level of knowledge, professionalism, and warmth that you displayed was refreshing and most appreciated! I recall leaving our meeting feeling as though I had a job offer in my hand and not just my newly-created professional resumes. I truly felt empowered each time I sent out my resume. Your continued support over the next few months as my resume began to get hit after hit, feedback, interview, and second interviews only reiterated to me what an amazing job you had done on transforming my resume.
Working with Marian has been nothing short of perfection. She was able to follow up when needed, completed the work, and responded to my requests in a very timely manner. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a resume and cover letter! I want to thank you for sending the first draft of the cover letter and resume so quickly. I am very impressed with your expertise in presenting the information in such a professional and impressive format and language. You are the real deal.
You ask all the right questions, and your personal experiences being used as examples were very helpful and interesting, also. Thank you so much for your time. The resume looks great! I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism and your ability to turn my resume from a work in progress to a work of art.
You are very talented and your passion for words is clearly more than just a passion, it is a skill you have mastered. I feel confident I will find the job I am looking for and this resume is the key to my success.
I highly recommend the service you provide and will share my experience with other business professionals. I had my interview [the afternoon before], then a written test. The HR Director and our Vice President were very impressed with the resume — so much so that they clapped when I entered the board room! Our head of our Accounting Dept. I am so grateful that I had the chance to work with you. Sorry if I seemed picky or asked too many questions grammar, etc.
I just wanted to make sure that everything was perfect, and I feel very confident that it is. You were wonderful to work with, and I would highly recommend you to my friends.
I will definitely contact you again when I need another resume. You did a great job on my resume. Hopefully, with this professionally-written resume, I can find a job that I always wanted. I would like to thank you very much for the resume and cover letter that you created for my daughter. It is extremely well written and very professional. I really appreciate all that you did for her. Best wishes in your future endeavours! Thank you so much, Marian, for the personalized assistance that you provided our 31 employees through a time of understandable concern for them [Bell Canada location closure in the GTA].
I can emphatically state that everyone was BLOWN AWAY with their resumes and cover letters, and your upbeat attitude played an integral role in bolstering their self-esteem. You definitely know your stuff! Employees need to be reassured of the value they offer — especially if they face a corporate reorganization or realignment.
You have dramatically exceeded our expectations, and you set a shining example as to what Professional Resume Writing represents. I would heartily endorse your services to any company — big or small. Best of luck to you in the future!!!! I looked over both the resume and cover letters, and they both look great! It is a true pleasure for me to write this thank-you letter for Marian. Thanks so much for your very professional assistance.
I enjoyed our time on the phone tremendously. As a result of your resume, I was able to move from my home in Los Angeles to land my dream job in Hawaii.
For anyone who is considering using a resume service, I strongly recommend The Regency Group. From the beginning, you understand that you are dealing with someone who really knows their profession.
