Utilizing the best executive resume writing service can mean the difference between landing your dream job and hearing, “We’ll keep your resume on file.” We turn to experts (therapists, doctors, mechanics, hair stylists, etc.), for help in our everyday lives, and your resume should not be an exception to that rule.
According to Forbes, job seekers are 40% more likely to get noticed by hiring managers with a professionally written resume.
Think about it. Your resume is the single most important career document you will ever need. Why wouldn’t you catapult your results at acquiring the job you really want? Our clients have accelerated their job searches, had doors open for them for the most coveted positions, and they have achieved the highest salaries reflecting over a 15% increase at minimum.
Each week that you are unemployed or job searching can cost you hundreds or possibly even thousands of dollars. How so? Let’s put some real figures to the test. If you are currently earning $100,000, you are missing out on an extra $15,000 to $20,000 a year by not acquiring a better job. If you are unemployed and your previous base salary was $100,000, you are losing over $8,000 a month as you job search. Just imagine what those numbers would convert to if you shortened your job search by weeks or months by having your resume professionally overhauled.
Things to look for in a resume writer include: career background, academic background, industry certifications, work samples, reputation in the industry, publications, published reviews/testimonials, overall online presence, social media channels, and how well the writer markets himself/herself.

Your Resume and Your Job Search Strategy Must Be Different in the Digital Age.
A resume used to be a summary of your work history. You would send it in to an employer and hear back from someone in HR very quickly. In today’s digital age, with just a few seconds to spare, your resume (and your LinkedIn profile) must personally brand you and capture the reader’s attention quickly while standing out in a pile of thousands of candidates. Your resume must also be a strategic marketing document that commands your value and expertise by focusing on your core competencies, achievements, accomplishments, and major contributions. Your resume must be able to pass through an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and actually make it seen by the human eye.
Resume writing is both a skill and an art. It is technical, daunting, and not to mention, downright stressful. Many find it hard to write about themselves or target their resume for a specific position. Think about the logic behind this. You have a hair stylist cut or color your hair. You have a trained mechanic fix your car. You hire a contractor to remodel your house. Why wouldn’t you want a resume and job search expert helping you in the next step in your career? Remember, a great resume is what wins the most competitive job interviews. It encompasses succinct writing, superior grammar, and a style that astounds the reader with the “wow” factor. Time and time again, it’s a proven fact that professionally written resumes get more interviews for the more coveted positions.

Prior to any client hiring us, we request you send your resume so that we may review it and discuss it with you during the consultation call. Once a client hires us after consultation and payment, we provide the client with an introspective questionnaire that concentrates on extracting the client’s accomplishments, skills, career goals, leadership, unique value to organizations, and desired target position(s). This enables us to have a more developed grasp on how to best serve our client’s needs. We compare the questionnaire to the current resume, research the specific job the client is seeking, and then the magic truly begins. We utilize a three (3) step process with all of our clients, no matter their level or industry. Our resume service includes structure reformatting, content revamping, and reviewing/editing. We consistently update our clients on the progress of the resume during the draft stage. Many times, we will ask additional questions and seek additional information through a comprehensive follow-up call. As a result, the average resume turnaround time is 14-21 days.
We believe that your resume and cover letter matter equally. Not only will we write a resume tailored to your career objectives and experience, we will also craft a detailed cover letter which emphasizes your career credentials and accomplishments. Employers use cover letters to determine a potential candidate’s writing and communication skills. The Writing Guru® focuses on establishing a clear connection between your skill set and your ability to convey those skills in writing. Therefore, ALL of our resume packages include a personalized cover letter with your resume!
