It is important that you understand how a resume writing service works. Getting informed on how a company delivers quality service makes you a smart resume writing service client who can opt for the best. Here at Resume Prime, we appreciate it more if a resume client chooses us after careful study of a resume writing company’s credentials. For ‘easy reading,’ we grouped the frequently asked questions per topic:
Resume Writers’ Expertise
I can make my own resume and prepare it the best way I can. So, what’s the use of paying for the service of a resume writer?
Hiring managers respond to your application based on the way you’ve written and presented on your resume. Meaning to say, your resume should be that interesting in terms of substance and visual appearance. While we can all prepare our own resume, putting that expert and effective strategy can just well be done by professional resume writers themselves. You need to be reminded that even the best writers need the expertise of editors and opinions of their fellow writers just to make sure that what they’ve written makes sense. By hiring the service of a professional resume writer, that sense of being ‘subjective’ to your own resume can be eliminated because an expert can objectively develop it for you, minus the hassles of being the critic of your own work.
What’s with the fast and rush resume service and all? Almost all resume writing companies claim that.
We understand that there are cases when you need to have a really effective resume in as little as a few hours. When our clients want a rush service, we put their project on our priority list. Our rush resume writing service will allow you to receive the copy in as fast as 48 hours. You don’t need to worry about the quality because all our resume writers are trained to produce effective results the fastest way possible.
There are companies that take about five (5) days and even more than that for just an initial draft of a resume and it’s not that impressive at all. How fast are your writers in completing the initial draft of my resume?
In three (3) to five (5) days, Saturdays and Sundays excluded, you’ll get to receive the initial draft of your resume. But this turnaround time will only take effect when we’ve received your payment and the completed questionnaire or copy of your resume. Once you’ve received the initial draft, we’ll wait for your approval or instruction if it needs to be revised before we proceed with its finalization and the other resume package inclusions.
Pre-Sign Up Concerns
When I started to work, all I wanted is to earn money. Now, I’d really like to have a career in its real sense. I want to hire your service, but I’m finding it difficult to identify my career goal. What will I do then?
Since the scope of our work is about creating resumes and other job search tools such as biography, opening statement, and many others, it will be easier for you and us if you are certain with your career goal(s) more than anything else before you proceed with the process. You have to be very sure with what you wish to see happen with your career or what you specifically aim to achieve. Although we believe we can make recommendations or suggestions, your career choice still lies with you.
If I will hire your service, you’ll get to know some confidential information about me. I’ve heard that there are resume writing companies that sell information to job banks and other companies. How can I be sure that my information will be kept confidential?
Privacy and confidentiality are what we ultimately apply in keeping your information. While we are aware that there are resume writing companies that share their customers’ resumes with job and resume banks for a certain amount, with Resume Prime, you can be certain that we will not disclose or utilize your information with any person or other companies. All our employees signed a non-disclosure agreement, but beyond that we always respect everyone’s privacy.
So far, I’m impressed and convinced about the information on your resume writing services posted on your web site. How will I get started then? Do I need to immediately click on the ‘Buy Now’ button?
Yes, you may do so. But it will be better if you have one of our agents assist you with the process. Our web site is equipped with live chat that automatically pops up when you’re browsing the site. You can also call us so you’ll get to instantly talk with our staff. You need to choose first the resume writing package you want. Then, sign up on our secure page. Once we received your order, we’ll send you a questionnaire together with an order receipt. At this point, you can decide whether you want to disregard our questionnaire and submit your own draft or current resume. You may send it to us either via fax or e-mail. If you have any concern, you can always call us for assistance or if you have some instructions to give.
I really have no idea if I need to have several versions of my resume since I’m planning to apply for different vacancies. Do you think it’s possible to prepare a single resume for me that can cover the wide range of my qualifications if I were to pursue multiple career paths?
Our skilled resume writers can highlight all your skills on the professional summary or qualifications summary of your resume. But of course, it won’t be easy to make your resume ‘customized’ with as many careers. For a resume to be really that effective, it should be custom fitted with a single job title. This way, the requirements of the job that you are applying for can be addressed well.
Though I trust communication via phone call or e-mail, I will prefer to personally discuss my project with a certain company, especially if it’s for an important document like my resume. Can I come to your office to discuss my project?
Resume Prime operates via the Internet. Our communication with clients is done through phone calls, e-mail messages, and/or online chat only. This is the most practical, convenient, and money-saving approach to do service with our clients, not only here in the U.S., but those from other countries, as well.
Resume Writing Procedure and Related Services
I’m concerned about the ‘compatibility issues’ in viewing the documents I ordered when I finally got to receive them. How will you send my final and approved resume copy?
We’ll prepare your final and approved resume in two (2) file formats, (all our resume writing packages offer two (2) resume file formats) — MS Word or .doc and PDF (you will need the free Adobe Reader for this file). Some technical issues usually prevent files from being viewed as it was made. The PDF copy is important, so you can get to view the original format of your resume.
We can also prepare your resume in ASCII (electronic version) format, but for a certain fee. Since many employers currently opt to have electronic copies, it’s important that you have an electronic resume or an ASCII text format. That way, you are prepared enough to send your application to as many prospective employers, as possible, even if they have different preferred file formats.
I’m not yet 100% satisfied with the resume written for me. If I want to have it revised, will it be accommodated?
We put a premium on customer satisfaction. In everything we do, we see to it that our team of professional resume writers delivers only superior quality products. But if there is really a need to and your reasons for requesting a revision are valid, we’d be more than willing to revise it until you are fully satisfied with our service.
This can be a rare issue, but what if I’ve lost or misplaced my resume and/or cover letter? How can you help me?
You don’t need to worry about it. Except for our Bronze package, all our resume writing packages include a lifetime storage of your resume and cover letter files. Just get in touch with us if you need another copy of your files. If you’ve purchased the Bronze package and want to secure the lifetime storage of your files, you’ll need to purchase our lifetime storage add-on because after one (1) year, all your files will be deleted from our database.
I’ve long wanted to pursue a career change. It’s just that I really don’t have a clear idea how to start it. Do you have specific service(s) for someone like me?
This will basically depend on the type of career change that you want to have or achieve. For instance, you are planning to shift in your writing career from a newspaper agency to a publishing house—we can underscore your writing expertise to make you qualified for the position. Our professional resume writers are skilled at crafting a career change resume that can describe your qualifications and competencies for a totally new job for you.
Do you have a resume update service, even for minor modifications only?
We certainly do because we keep your resume in our active file list for six (6) months. Meaning to say, within that period, you can always request that for it to be updated and it’s all for free. But if your request is made beyond that time, you’ll need to pay $30 for the service.
