Why should I choose you over a high-visibility resume writing service?

Having worked as a resume subcontractor for a number of years, I’ve observed fluxuating levels of competence and quality, even among writers in the same company. Most larger services select your resume specialist at random from a pool of wildy varied talent. Considering the fact that the objective of such subcontractors is to write as quickly as they can to sustain an acceptable hourly wage, you’re likely to receive poor quality material. Your Custom Resume is owned and operated by one talented writer who stays in contact with you during the entire process. I won’t subcontract your job search to someone who isn’t committed to your project.

How do your rates compare to similar services?

A casual study of other online professional resume writing services will reveal my rates to be superior to those of most companies offering a comparable level of project execution. I do not believe that entry level professionals should have to shell out $100 or more for a quality resume. I also dismiss the idea that people who have an extensive job history should be pressured into paying $300-$600 due to a manufactured expectation of better value. Regardless of the philosophies and price points of similar services, I maintain that the client should pay for the quality of the document itself, not the pressure they feel to find a job or the difficulty they may have in procuring an interview.

I've seen services charging less money. Any comments?

Be very wary of services that promise industry expertise, professional certification, and elite writing specialists who, curiously enough, are working for slave wages. Typically, these writers work for a ‘resume mill.’ Such companies use subcontractors who get paid a fraction of an already suspiciously low service rate; resulting in sloppy templates, ineffective language, and if you are particularly unlucky, blatantly plagiarized content.

Can’t I just copy a sample resume from online?

Your document is a branding statement and a presentation of your accomplishments, not just a list of things you do. Of equal import is the fact that no employer or hiring manager with even a basic understanding of recruiting strategies will give such a resume more than a passing glance. The purpose of a professional resume writing service is to position you as a qualified candidate for the job you’re applying for; if even one other person in a group of 100 applicants uses a professionally written resume, a repurposed resume essentially becomes worthless.  

Shouldn’t I write my own resume?

A well-chosen professional resume writer leverages your unmatcheable knowledge of you alongside his or her own expertise with best current resume writing practices to build an articulate statement of value that captures interest and facilitates more job interviews. This is a winning collaboration, and the statistics back it up.

What’s the secret ingredient for a great resume?

It’s you. For all the clients I’ve worked with, I’ve found that the best resumes come from people who are willing to embrace their worth and look just past their employment data to find out what truly makes them special.
