Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the Resume Writing Process Like?2022-11-13T16:03:44-08:00

Our resume writing process is highly collaborative because you know yourself best!

Once you’ve placed an order, we’ll send you a link to fill out our information form. We ask our clients to fill this out with as much detail as possible because the more we know, the more specific your resume will be. This form will give you the opportunity to send us your current resume, LinkedIn profile, links to jobs you’re interested in pursuing, and anything else that might help us get to know you more.

After we’ve received your form, you’ll have the option to schedule a 30-45 minute phone consultation with your resume writer so we can discuss your job search and learn more about your background, expertise, achievements, etc. After the phone consultation, we’ll get to work and we’ll be in touch with any questions that arise.

Once you’ve received the first draft of your resume, we welcome your feedback and gladly offer up to two rounds of revisions to ensure your satisfaction with the final product.
