Your investment level for professional resume writing services is determined by a number of factors including:
- Length of work history
- Number of positions held
- Level of position sought (recent grad, experienced professional, management, or executive)
- Industry & project complexity
Think A Professionally Written Resume Isn’t In Your Budget?
Resume writing services are an investment in yourself and in your career growth–just like other career essentials like professional development courses, association memberships, and interview attire. Consider also how much every day you spend conducting a job search costs you:
- If your annual salary is $50,000, you’re losing nearly $4200 each month.
- If you’re earning $100,000 annually, you’re losing just over $8300 per month.
- At a $150,000 salary, you’re losing $12,500 every month you spend job hunting.
If you land a position even one week sooner than you otherwise would have or with a minimal pay increase, your investment in professional resume writing services more than pays for itself.
Please see the below list of a la carte resume writing services and prices for a basic guideline and contact us for a specific price quote on your project. Be sure to include a copy of your current resume or outline of your work history and current employment target to receive your quote. Discounts are available for packages–we strongly suggest you take advantage of these to obtain the greatest value and ensure consistent branding across all career communications and media platforms, including your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile.
A few of the services we offer in addition to our complete resume packages include:
What Does Your LinkedIn Profile Really Say About You?
Is your LinkedIn profile getting the attention of recruiters and hiring managers? Does the headline grab the reader’s attention and contain the right keywords to drive searches? Does your summary make a strong statement about who you are, what you have to offer, and why you’re passionate about your work?
If you answered no to these questions, or if your LinkedIn profile currently looks like a copy-and-pasted version of your resume, it may be time to consider a makeover! An effective LinkedIn presence is a key component of any job search today. It’s typically the first place an employer will look to learn more about you if they’re interested in your resume. A search-optimized profile on LinkedIn enables you to broaden your reach, share your expertise, build valuable relationships, and grants you access to unadvertised jobs.
Did you know:
- LinkedIn currently includes more than 3 million companies and more than 460 million individual users, including executives from every Fortune 500 company.
- Surveys consistently find that more than 90% of recruiters use social media to find job candidates. LinkedIn is the primary source for both recruiting and vetting candidates.
- Recruiters and employers use social media to judge communication skills, culture fit, and tech savvy, all key to hiring decisions.
- Resumes uploaded to LinkedIn profiles are not searchable by recruiters.
- More than 40% of LinkedIn users are Managers, Directors, Owners, Vice Presidents or Chief Officers.
Unfortunately many job seekers are under the mistaken impression that just by creating a basic profile with default settings and listing position titles and graduation years, they have a “LinkedIn presence”. Whether you’re actively searching for a new position, or just seeking to expand your professional networking opportunities, let us help you maximize this powerful marketing tool by developing a stand-out, search-optimized profile and teaching you how to make the most of it.
“Tell Me About Yourself…”
Been a while since your last interview? Whether you just need to brush up your skills, develop your accomplishment stories, or are just not sure how to answer the dreaded “Tell me about yourself” question, we can help you prepare a strategy so that you can go into your interview feeling confident.
