FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What type of résumés do you specialize in?
With 1700+ résumés under my belt, I have worked with clients from all sorts of industries and at all career levels. I have worked with industry lifers, C-level executives, recent college graduates, career changers, those experiencing ageism, and everything in between.
Clientele and industries that I specialize in include (but are not limited to) sales, operations, accounting, corporate finance, administrative support (Executive Assistant, Administrative Assistant, Personal Assistant, Legal Assistant, etc.), restaurants, hospitality, management, retail management, customer service, retail banking, marketing, public relations, political, product management, account management, human resources, recruitment, education (K-12/administration), non profit, event planning, construction management, estimating, property management. Don't see your occupation listed here? Just send me an email to inquire; I can work with most professionals!
Clientele and industries that I do not work with are IT, engineering, high-level scientific and medical, most traders, and complex finance and attorney backgrounds. I realize this is very open to interpretation, so if you come from one of these backgrounds, please email me to see if we are a match. If we are not, I am more than happy to reach out to my network of résumé writers who do specialize in your profession!
How does this process work?
To get started, please purchase a service by going here.
After you place an order using PayPal or any major credit card, you will receive a "next steps" email that will contain a link to my calendar so you can schedule our 1-hour telephone consultation. First drafts are completed in 5-7 business days from our consultation (rush services are available for an additional fee). You will have the opportunity to review your documents and I will work with you on up to 2 rounds of edits. You will receive your résumé as both a Microsoft Word and PDF document.
How much do your services cost?
Besides consulting services and résumé format upgrades, investments typically range from $295-$895 depending on the service(s) you are interested in and your career level. This is incredible value considering the expertise and quality of work that I bring to the table in addition to the time savings, stress reduction, and potential return on investment for you. For perspective, someone making $40,000 annually earns $769 weekly and would recoup their entire investment between 2-4 days working in a new job.
I have been shopping around and see a large range of prices for résumé writing services. Why is that?
This is a great question! There is a large range of prices because literally anyone can call themself a résumé writer, regardless of how qualified or unqualified they are. As you explore your options, I advise you to ask the following questions:
Is this writer certified by a professional résumé writing and career coaching association? (I am!)
Does this writer have recruiting experience? Can they write my résumé with the reader's perspective in mind? Have they ever actually reviewed résumés, interviewed applicants, and hired staff? (I do! I have!; for 10+ years.)
Have I checked this writer's reviews? What are other people saying about them? (Google "Reed Résumés" or take a look at the Recommendations at the bottom of my LinkedIn profile.)
Will this writer outsource the work to another writer or someone in another country even? (I will not; I work with my clients 100% of the way.)
Does this price make sense? Can I get a truly spectacular résumé for just $50? $100? $175?
- At those prices, how much time can the writer truly devote to your work?
- As you search for a résumé writer, you will absolutely come across lower cost services. There may even be writers out there who offer a faster turnaround time. At the $295-$895 price point, I am able to deliver an incredible customer experience, value, and expertise while devoting an enormous amount of time, research, passion, and care to my clients and their documents.
Do you offer any guarantees?
I will work with you on your documents until you are 100% satisfied. I have a 99.9% satisfaction rate and 80%+ of my clients come through referrals, so it is important to me that you are happy! I do not make any guarantees regarding interviews and job offers because there are a plethora of variables in play. You should be skeptical of any résumé writer who guarantees you interviews and job offers. Please see the terms and conditions below.
