Resume Pricing & Packages

The Writing Guru® serves board, C-suite, and senior executive clients at Fortune 500, private equity, VC-backed, and start-up environments, leveraging 15-20+ years of leadership experience. Our executive resume writing packages and board resume writing packages are detailed below. We strive to make it simple and easy  for you to purchase a resume writing package and secure your project spot.

Resume Formats:  We provide our documents in both Word and PDF versions. We do not use graphs, charts, or other fancy components in our resumes. The key is for your resume to be simple and digestible. Executive recruiters (who often refer clients to us) like our simple and classic modern style.
Turnaround Time:  Since we do not outsource any work (no team or subcontractors), and due to very high demand for our executive resume writing and board resume writing services, our turnaround time ranges from 6-8+ weeks depending on our current project schedule. Please always ask about current timelines before making payment. 
Board Candidates:  If you’re targeting a board seat, we recommend the Premium Branding Package + Bio for your board portfolio as you’ll need a board resume, LinkedIn, board bio, and board letter of interest when submitting to board recruiters and search firms.
Resume/LinkedIn Updates for Returning ClientsPast clients who require updates to their resumes/LinkedIn profiles or are in need of re-branding for a career change, we price you at an hourly rate or a flat fee of 75% of original project cost, depending on complexity or writing time needed. Please inquire with us for more details.

C-Suite/Executive Counsel/Board Directors Package Options:

Note: as of December 1, 2023, non-legal VP/SVP/EVP executives were moved to the above pricing tier. This is due to the amount of interfacing we provide all clients and the value of our services. While we’re listed on various “best executive resume writer” lists, those lists may not contain current pricing information.

In January 2024, we released a live editing/coaching session option for those who are seeking a short-term engagement without the full re-write and elongated coaching process. More details are listed below.

✰✰  Power Your Brand™ Live Coaching Sessions – NEW for 2024!  ✰✰

Due to numerous requests and heightened demand, we officially launched this service for executive job seeker clients who want live proofreading, editing, and tweaking of their existing detailed resume and LinkedIn content without the commitment, tenure, and possible wait-time of a full-scale project.

The reason behind this service: over the years, we encountered a number of executives whose resumes and LinkedIn profiles had the needed granular detail, but lacked the structure and organization required for a well-marketed, optimized, and branded document/profile with a modern flair. We would take these clients on a case-by-case basis for edit-only processes, but never advertised it openly since our focus was on full-scale resume and LinkedIn re-writes. But, as the markets change, so do service offerings. We’re thrilled to now make this service openly available.

Our live coaching sessions via Zoom offer those needing help with: (1) brand positioning advisory; (2) live proofreading, editing, and tweaking of existing content for better flow/syntax; and (3) stronger optimization for the digital age job search. The sessions are ideal for those who are engaged in an active search and have a recruiter waiting for their polished resume/LinkedIn profile, or who don’t have the time or resources to invest in our full-scale process. It is a highly collaborative process that allows us to brainstorm together to refine, enhance, and watch the edits come to life via Zoom screen share on your resume and LinkedIn profile.

Resumes and LinkedIn profiles must be current and complete with details about company insights, job functions, and achievements. Please email us to learn more. If we do not believe you are a fit for our live editing/coaching services, we will advise accordingly. The fees include review and preparation for the session but do not include any additional outside writing, editing, or strategy coaching.
