How does the process work?

Step 1: Initial Review: Submit your resume here for a free, no obligation review.

Our team will request any remaining information needed from you to get started, and we will gain an understanding of your career experience and target roles to make sure your new documents are keyword optimized appropriately. You will also have an opportunity to request a call with your resume writer directly if you wish.

Step 4: Revisions & Order Completion: Once our team completes your new documents, you will have the opportunity to review these and request any revisions you feel may be necessary. The revision process continues until you are completely satisfied with every line of your new documents.

What is your pricing structure?

  • Our pricing is custom-tailored and is based on factors including your total years of work experience, turnaround time, the role(s) you are seeking, and the level of improvement needed to your current resume. Unlike most other résumé companies with pre-determined pricing, we feel you should only pay for the amount of service you actually need.

What qualifies Respected Résumés to help?

  • We employ career consultants who have extensive history in human resources and recruiting in a variety of fields. We will match you with a team member who is the best fit for you and your desired industry. Our experts understand and specialize in résumé writing. We have completed extensive research to understand what matters to employers and how that information must be communicated in the résumé.

Why would I pay for this when I can just write my own résumé?

  • The hiring manager’s assessment of you as a person and a candidate for the position will be solely based on your résumé. If you weren’t an artist you wouldn’t paint your own self-portrait, would you? You would let a person with artistic skills and experience paint it for you. That’s where we come in.

How can I be confident you will accurately address my unique work history?

  • We employ career consultants who have extensive history in human resources and recruiting in a variety of fields. We will match you with a team member who is the best fit for you and your desired industry. This consultant will work directly with you to provide a personal approach.

  • Our custom résumé packages will give you the opportunity to view our work and provide feedback if necessary. We provide free revisions if you feel as though we haven’t touched on something as effectively as we should have.

Why isn’t my current résumé good enough?

  • It isn’t about whether you think your résumé is good enough—it’s about how a hiring manager in your industry will view it. A decision is made within the first 11 seconds of reading your résumé, and our team of experts is here to help you make every second count. We offer an individualized approach to each résumé request and only accept orders in which we know our services will be beneficial to the client.

Not all hiring managers/companies are the same. How do I know your methods will work?

  • Yes, not all people are the same, but you can agree that most people have the same tendencies. For example, you would tend to avoid an obnoxious sound and prefer something more comfortable. The research is based on human tendencies. Most hiring managers prefer to see résumés that are built using this format. If they like your résumé over the others, then you are more likely to get the interview.
  • We also employ career consultants who have extensive history in human resources and recruiting in a variety of fields. We will match you with a team member who is the best fit for you and your desired industry.

What if I’m not completely satisfied upon receiving my product or the overall result of my interviews?

  • If you feel the résumé you receive isn’t getting you the results you were hoping for or you just aren’t satisfied with it, we will work closely with you to revise it at no additional cost. Our work isn’t finished until you are completely satisfied.
