" In the simplest of terms, I sent out 8 resumes; had 6 interviews and received three offers. I accepted the position I wanted from the start and couldn’t" be happier. The talent at
is unparalleled. I’m not one to generally leave reviews but felt this review was a necessary one. As an executive member of a Fo?rtune 100 firm seeking to transition into a new industry, I was concerned about finding the best company to create a new resume for me. First I read the reviews of a few Angie’s List members and narrowed it down to a few who had the best ratings. I then called them all and that’s when I decided to go with
. I first spoke with
, who was very knowledgeable not only about my industry but what I do as the Chief Operating Officer of a globally recognized firm.
spent some time helping me gather information to get started. She then introduced me to one of their executive writers who then spent an hour with me on the phone. My writer asked probing questions and somehow was able to help me think of accomplishments in a way I wouldn’t have been able to do on my own. I was a little nervous waiting 2 ½ weeks for my first draft but they did warn me in the beginning that it would take that long. Once I received my draft, I corresponded with the writer in a robust editing process to get the resume exactly where I wanted. ? In the end, I was very impressed with how they were able to articulate my value and achievements in a way that people reading my resume -- C-level teams -- would find compelling. I’ve already sent a few referrals your way and will continue to do so.

"Ms
asked me to send all prior data/resume information. She then asked specifics about career goals and objectives. WE communicated through" email and by phone. I appreciated the questions and was was pleased that though the dialogs, I mentioned a few 'seemingly' insignificant projects, which proved otherwise.
"connected a the dots", and thankfully revealed an additional skill. It not only looked great to add to my resume, I was also glad to credit my own extra efforts.
, I want to thank you for your "listening" and your insight. I have already recommended you to my daughter!

The provider had a phone conversation with me where we spoke for an hour and I was promised a deliverable in 10 business days. Since then, 13 business days have elapsed and I have not heard back from the provider. Service was not performed as promised.

UPDATE: I was issued a full refund.

I am absolutely floored by the quality of this resume. I expected a little bit of an update from what I believe was a pretty good resume, but what I received today is a complete re-write, and a great looking one at that. Very fine work.

The provider prepared a resume. I reviewed the resume and requested revisions and suggested improvements to my technical resume. The provider became defensive and scolded me for suggesting the changes. She emphatically reminded me of her credentials and implied that I was an idiot for making such suggestions since I did not have her degree of experience in Human Resources. Rather than arguing with her I accepted the product and worked with a recruiter to customize my resume. I was very disappointed in the service, but concluded that I probably got what I paid for so lesson learned.

The resume and cover letter looked incredible. I received more feedback in the first week of using it than the entire previous 2 months combined.

did my resume 10 years ago and I still love the format. Over the years, I updated it with her pattern. But recently I had hopes we could rework it but our schedules didn't match. She was kind enough to give it a quick look over. I still remember the time we worked on it years ago and what I learned.

was very responsive, having returned my phone call minutes after I lost my job. We had an initial conversation regarding my job loss and what I was hoping for future employment. Then I completed a worksheet that detailed my positions and achievements for the last 15 years, followed by an hour long session with the person who actually put my resume together. Once the resume was finished, they provided a cover letter I can use for any number of situations.

I emailed the site with questions and received a response and phone call the same day. It was a comfortable experience overall and I would recommend someone in transition between careers to call them.

This system is a little different than most services. You pay first for the service. I am sure because of the possible abuse of performing work for people and then having them change their minds and not paying for the service is a factor. However, there is no longer any incentive to get work done in a timely manner this way. This can slow the process down. You can take on much too much work than can reasonably be done in a reasonal matter of time.
