1 How does your service work?
We can communicate in whatever way makes you most comfortable - by phone or email. I'll ask you why you need a new resume, and I'll review your old resume (if you have one). We'll discuss your career goals and job search needs, then come up with a plan of action and a price quote.
Once you've paid for your package, we’ll set a date/time for your Resume Development Interview - I don’t use a questionnaire unless the client requests it. That interview will help me gather the in-depth information I need about your career history and accomplishments to write your new, improved resume and other career documents.
2 How long will it take to get my new resume?
I deliver first drafts within 3 to 5 business days of the Resume Development Interview. Final document delivery depends on your availability and the speed with which you review your documents and answer any additional questions.
Rush Service is available for an additional fee.
3 Can I get a generic resume to use for lots of jobs?
There is no such thing as an effective generic resumes. Employers hire people for specific jobs, and they want to know that you have the skills and experience to do that job. Generic resumes are usually ineffective because they leave the employer guessing, which leaves your resume in the NO pile. In addition, applicant tracking software looks for specific keywords related to each job, which means a too-general resume will likely be kicked out of the system. Focusing on a specific position or type of job will make your resume much more effective.
4 Do I get more than one draft?
I provide up to three (3) drafts - first, second and final drafts - though most clients only need two drafts.
You are responsible for carefully proofreading your documents to be sure that all names, numbers, scientific or industry terms, etc. are correct and that it is factually accurate.
5 Do you guarantee I'll get a job?
No, I do not guarantee that you will get interviews or a job. There are just too many variables, including personality and interview skills that make it impossible for me to offer such a guarantee. I do want you to be 100 percent satisfied with your resume and other documents, and will provide free minor revisions for 30 days after your final documents are delivered.
