Choosing a resume writing service with a deadline

Choosing a resume writing service with a deadline

My old resume held me back

I’d been job hunting for a while with no luck, and really, I felt my resume was holding me back. I had lots of years of experience, but no matter how many applications I sent out, I was hardly getting any call backs, let alone interviews.
So I was already thinking that getting my resume rewritten might be a good investment, when I found an incredible job at my dream company – I couldn’t believe I’d missed it until now. But the deadline was less than 2 days away! I wanted to cry, there was no way I could get my resume perfect in time, and I didn’t want to risk sending what I had in to have it thrown in the trash. 

Looking for the fastest service

I stayed up until past midnight looking at resume writing services, and I just couldn’t decide what to pick, I was so stressed. And so many of them would only deliver the resume in 3 days, already past the deadline. I didn’t know what to do.
I was choosing between Resume Writers and Craft Resumes, as they had great testimonials and reviews, but Resume Writers could only rush my order for $75 more. Craft Resumes promised delivery in just one day, and was only $129, $70 less than Resume Writers. I couldn’t waste time deciding any longer, and I placed my order.

I was thinking I’d go to bed and get a response in the morning, but only 15 minutes later I’d been assigned a writer! I sent over the resume I had, scheduled a Skype call for the morning, and finally went to bed. Read the full review

Resume writing for ex-military

Resume writing for ex-military

A sharp transition

I joined the Air Force straight out of high school, and ended up in Transportation, Supply, and Logistics.  I’ve always had an eye for details and making things run efficiently, and I quickly stood out and made a name for myself. It was a great place to work. The constant moving was difficult though, and when my contract was up and my girlfriend and I were thinking of settling down, it made sense to move on.

The job hunt started right away, and I must have sent off hundreds of applications. I got call backs, of course, but never to the jobs I really wanted. Finally, I couldn’t wait any longer – I took a job as a security guard. It felt kinda brainless compared to what I was doing before, but the commute was short and the benefits were good.

 Underusing my skills

After 8 months as a guard, I was bored out of my skull. I wasn’t using my brain anymore! I was used to being treated with respect and like my skills mattered, and now I spent my shifts with one other guy who wouldn’t notice if I was replaced with an empty uniform. My girlfriend had become my wife and with the prospect of a new addition to the family, quitting wasn’t an option.
I had to get out. Not only boring, security doesn’t have much of a career path either. I knew I had more skills than I was using, I just needed to get someone to see that… maybe someone else could show employers better than I could.

 Satisfaction Guaranteed

If you’ve ever looked for a resume writing service, you’ll know there are hundreds, all claiming to be the best. All ‘guaranteeing’ you a job… with sketchy guarantee terms. I’m skeptical. Resume Writers actually put their money where their mouth is – if you don’t have a job in 60 days, they’ll rewrite your resume for free. The military discount didn’t hurt either!

I like to plan ahead, and since they had a discount if you got the cover letter along with the resume, I picked out around 8 roles I’d like to apply for. 3 average, 3 good, and 2… well, those 2 were a stretch, high level logistics. 
Ready for anything, I made my order.

Personal Touch

Not even 3 hours later, I heard back. My writer was ex-military too, but Army not Air Force. He spent over an hour on Skype talking about my experience and asking me questions about how I handled problems.  Just a few more points finalized by email, and he was ready to go.

I couldn’t wait to see the results. 3 days was too long! There was a rush option, but I’d rather keep my $70. None of the jobs had next day deadlines, so no pressure. Finally, the finished resume arrived.
Resume Writers let you make unlimited changes, but honestly, it felt great exactly how it was. I’d hire me! I saved the cover letter for my dream job, and sent all my applications that night.

 The Result

Out of 8 applications, I got 5 call backs! That’s NEVER happened before.  Now I had to figure out how to interview for so many while I still had a job! Luckily security is a night job and the interviews were in normal business hours, so I managed. I fluffed one of the interviews, but the others went well.
I’d heard back from 3 places – the interview I messed up went with another candidate, like I thought they would. 2 were job offers, but I still hadn’t heard from my dream job. I didn’t want to put off making a decision, but I was still holding out hope… I gave myself an internal deadline to reply.

The night before, I heard back. I got it! The cover letter had really swayed them, and they thought I was the best fit for the role. In just one month, I get to change my career. That's my story... So, if you are considering Military resume writing -- try it for your self and order now

New word in resume writing - review

New word in resume writing review


After working a dead end job for years, our company decided to retrench most of the employees, and guess what, I was one of them. Here I was without work and have not used a resume in years. For one I did not even know where to start. A very close friend suggested to use as she had used them and had been very satisfied with their service with finding her a reliable job. I immediately sat down and searched for them and this is what I found!

My findings regarding this resume writing service

I came to the website and was quite impressed with the design and setup of the site itself and new that they know what they are doing regarding their service. Using their site is very fast and simple as they provide you with all the required information in choosing the right resume service for you. They even have a toll free number to call for those who do not have access to a computer at home.

Even better was the chat facility provided making it easier for me to communicate with them!  Right there, I started chatting away. They immediately communicated with me and asked me questions regarding my skills, strong points and what job I would be applying for. I was assigned my personal writer that I could even communicate with via email. I decided on using the basic resume writing package. Within a few hours I received a draft of my résumé.

The writers are so friendly and helpful that they did not even complain when I asked them to make some changes where I had not been satisfied with what appeared in the document.
I received my resume from them by the end of the day and immediately started sending it out to various companies that I had found while looking for work. Within a week I started receiving calls for interviews and yes, I have found a new job thanks to Craft Resumes.

What makes this service so great?

They present you with a tailored resume that is made according to your needs and qualifications.

 They provide you with:
  • Writing of Resume, CV, Resume Editing and CV Editing
  • You can even add for an extra fee a Cover Letter, Thank You Letter and Follow-Up Letter

My findings

I was very pleased with their service relating to my résumé and it had been prepared very professionally, where alterations had been needed to be made they presented me the help without complaining. My résumé was well organized and interesting.

It has all the relevant information needed. Overall, I am very pleased with the service and would recommend them to anyone who is in need of a new job or just need a change.
