SERVICE 


PURPOSE

A resume is a document and marketing tool that summarizes your value, skills, and accomplishments. The purpose of a resume in the college or job search process is to help support requests for interviews and applications.

Most people spend an average of only 6—20 seconds scanning a resume before deciding if a candidate is worth calling for an interview. We write clear, concise, consistent, and eye-catching resumes that help you get selected. 


DETAIL

We develop resumes for high school and college students, and recent college grads. You receive your resumes in Microsoft Word and PDF within 3—14 days. 

Using one of three formats—traditional, transitional, or modern—we write one “core” resume suitable for any opportunity and two “targeted” resumes for specific ones. This includes formatting, unlimited editing, and professional outside proofreading services. We guarantee 100% satisfaction.


FEE
  • High School Resume (up to college start date): $245
  • College Resume (up to 3 months post graduation): $295
