Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between your resume writing and editing services?
There are three major differences between the two services in addition to the difference in price.
1. Effort on your part
The resume writing service is 100% hands-off. You just give us an hour or two of your time so we can get all the information we need from you, and we'll do the rest.
The resume editing service comes with my award-winning resume template. I use this template to work on all my clients. It also comes with a 40-minute video guide on phrasing your accomplishments succinctly and finding keywords to put in your resume. It's up to you do the research and put your resume together.
Once you submit your resume to us for editing, it only takes us a business day to get back to you with an annotated, edited draft.
Our resume writing service, on the other hand, takes us 5 business days to wrap up.
When you purchase our resume writing services, we annotate your resume to show you how you can tweak it for additional positions.
When you purchase our resume editing service, we annotate your resume to show you exactly what you need to change to make your resume stronger. We'll also fix any grammatical and structural mistakes we see, and shorten lengthy bullets.
Which package is best for someone in my situation?
Give us a call at 951.284.5404 so we can work through your situation and recommend a package for you.
Alternatively, you can start with just one of our services and upgrade later simply by paying the difference.
What other low-cost services do you offer?
In addition to our low-cost resume service, we offer low-cost networking packages. You can check out our full set of low-cost services here.
Should I focus more on online job applications, or my networking strategy?
You should definitely focus your efforts on your networking strategy. Here are some interesting pieces of information that should get you really fired up about networking:
- 40% of all hires are employee referrals; companies offer up to $5000 if their employees refer qualified candidates.
- Only 7% of applications come in through employee referrals.
- Referred applicants have a 3-4 times higher chance of being hired than non-referred applicants.
In other words, while only seven percent of all applicants are referrals, they make up for almost half of all hiring.
Clearly the odds of getting your target job rise dramatically if you can get referred for the position. But in order to do so, you must first find the right people to connect with.
We run this process for our clients who invest in our referral service. Here's how the process works:
- We talk about your goals.
- We find the people you need to connect with, study them carefully, and put together several well-researched messages.
- You simply copy them and send them off.
- We help you follow up with and reply to your new connection.
