How fast can I get my resume completed?
After the interview and writing of the resume, the rough copy goes to our layout artists. Usually the turn-around time is about one week. Rush services are available with a varying extra charge.
Why shouldn't I do my resume myself?
This is no time for a "Do-It-Yourself" project. You wouldn't make your own suit for an interview; you shouldn't write your own resume. We do this every day and there is a major difference between the resumes people have done for themselves and what we have done for them. In fact, usually people don't want us to see what they've written for themselves after they see the resume we've written for them! And there's a huge difference in the number of interviews our clients get, which is critical to ultimately landing a position, and a sign of a positive response to your resume. You'll see the difference. We write a resume that will get you in the door for interviews.
What is the interview like?
In our office, we sit about three feet away from you, face to face, and ask you constant questions as we interview you, and you give us constant answers. It's a very comfortable, warm atmosphere. As our professional and personal lives usually intertwine somewhat, often personal information is shared. What you tell us is completely confidential. The whole interview process assists us to get to know you and help you, taking everything into consideration. Your resume will reflect who you are and will not be just a clone of everyone else's. Our clients are encouraged when they leave our office, and have often found a direction to their future through our process.
Can you do resumes by phone?
Absolutely! We have done resumes from coast-to-coast, from Virginia to Los Angeles, for instance. This usually comes from word-of-mouth referral. People have acquaintances in those areas and encourage them to come to us to get a truly professional resume done to ensure a great response from potential employers. Even clients who live in Michigan, but at a distance, work with us by phone. Our process still works beautifully!
