Resume Writing Services at a Fair Price
A professionally written resume is an investment in your future, just like the suit you wear to interviews. And like the suit, there is no one-size-fits-all resume package. Every client is different, and fees vary depending on your years of experience, whether you plan to stay in the same industry or switch to a new field, how many jobs you've held, and more.
If you've been laid off, or your industry is in distress, you're naturally worried about spending money right now. My prices are fair and include services for which many writers charge a separate fee. I don't believe in nickle-and-diming clients, and I keep my overhead low so that I can continue to provide excellent service at a reasonable price.
Success for You
The job of a resume is to get you interviews.
For that to happen, your resume has to get past electronic tracking systems and into the hands of decision-makers.
I know what employers are looking for and I know how to make your resume work with ATS (online application systems).
Your success is my top priority.
In addition to writing your documents, I provide free job search advice and articles to help you succeed.
I want you to be completely happy with your resume and other documents, and will provide free minor revisions for 30 days after your final documents are approved.
I do not offer refunds after work begins and I make no guarantee that you will get interviews or land a job.
Price Quotes & Payment
First, we'll communicate, either by phone or email, based on your preference. We'll discuss your goals and needs. If you've sent me your resume, I'll review it then recommend the services I think will help you the most.
Once you agree to the fee, I'll send you a PayPal invoice with a Client Services Agreement. Payment is required in advance before work can begin. Prices are good for 30 days after the initial quote.
Fees listed represent the average investment for a Custom Resume Package which includes a targeted resume, matching cover letter, references page, and thank you template.
If you need more than one resume, or you don't want everything included in a package, I can develop an individualized product geared to your needs.
Final documents are delivered in MS Word, PDF, and Plain Text at no extra charge.

Can you afford it? Can you afford not to do it?
Figure out how much income you're losing every day by being out of work, or by not working in the right place.
If you make $40,000/ year, that's $157 per day. At $75,000, it's $294 per day and at $100,000 it's $392 per day.
Now weigh the cost of a resume package against the cost of a long term job search.
Keep in mind that a better resume may also help you land a higher paying job!
I always provide a discount to clients who purchase both resume and LinkedIn services.
