Review TopResume now

I appreciate the information that was provided. I really thank you for take the time to review mi resume and help me with your feedback. My Resume critique was very insightful and honest. I now know what I need to do to get the results I want and deserve.

The review on my CV is very insightful and detailed. To be honest, I wasn't expecting so much effort to be given in reviewing my CV and now I'm truly glad. The very detailed comment on my CV is really helpful for me to re-organize my CV catering to the position i would like to apply for. Career writers have insight using background how to structure resume professionally to achieve desired results. My experience was a lot better than I was expecting.

The level of service was amazing and the team kept in touch with me throughout the entire process. The team developed a new resume and cover letter that was better tailored to my experience and skills and I'm looking forward to applying for jobs that are better suited to me! I was a little hesitant at first, but the first draft I received exceeded my expectations. It was delivered within 5 days and it completely changed my confidence when applying for jobs.

My resume now looks cohesive and professional, with key descriptive words I seemed to be missing when writing it myself. I would recommend TopResume to anyone who is just getting started on their job search or is looking for a career change.

Outstanding Resume Critique Service! Very honest and informative with concise solution ideas that will help you create a fantastic resume and snag your dream job!

Thank you so much Top Resume! TopResume did a superb job on updating my resume. They had quick turnaround as promised and within a month I have a resume that hopefully will give me a marketing edge to distinguish me from others.

There is a fair amount of competition for advertised positions so this will help make me standout. It was a good critique, it gave me things to think about. They also run the ATS on your resume so you can see how you're perceived, which is also useful. The personal critique was biting, and that was probably the point -- they were harsh on purpose, and that's their main selling point.

I didn't edit it, though, and disagreed that my resume was "uneven". I'm not even sure what that means, it is proportionally balanced, at least on a design level. My resume has been working for me pretty well, but she told me the language I used was too passive. It was a good thing to think about, and focused on trying to use it when I could.

After initially being assigned a writer I learned that she had a family emergency the next day and had to hand off my documents to another writer. The new writer followed up, finalized, and even adjusted additional information for me immediately after I requested it. No fumbles and in my opinion top notch service from professionals! TopResume is a must have if you want to restart your career and put yourself in the best position to get into the career you always wanted.

I had my resume and LinkedIn profile done by them and since then I have gotten interviews with companies that I would probably not have gotten before. They are very professional and easy to work with.

I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to make a career move or change. I was very satisfied with my cooperation with Ingrid. Everything was done promptly and well explained. I was asked to collaborate, and all three deliverables precisely responded to my needs.

I will soon start posting it on job platforms and have a good feeling about responses. If you value your professional career, do not hire TopResume.

The service is unprofessional, a poor display of a resume, the "expert" had zero knowledge about my field of work and ended up with a inferior result than my old resume. Typos, misalignment's, poor communication. The net effect was a waste of time and money. I have raised these issues - and they want more money - for a resume update!

Its basically a scam as the resumes are not covered with the 60 day policy as advertised. I will ensure that the message will reach other review sites and consumer defense and government protection agencies. Save your money and go with someone else that will provide a resume that doesn't look like it was made by a 2nd grader.

You can do it yourself, just like doing your own tax return, but the chances are you won't achieve what you could with a professionally crafted resume.

True there are some "professional resume writers" that don't have a clue, but most do know what they are doing and achieve outstanding results. If you want a really good resume, at a fair price, check out www. Harpreet in Bellevue, Washington said: I will send you a inquiry.

But you live in Australia. Would you have enough context about what employers look for in United States? Sure, a large portion of our work is from the US, actually, it is from all over the world. We are up to speed with US resume requirements. Personally, I haven't lived in Australia for over a year, next week I will be in Arizona currently in Mexico. I agree with you that no one knows you better than you but when it comes to applying your skill set to paper, I feel that it's best to allow a professional that has worked in the field for over 25 years.

I have written resumes and placed over 20, people in jobs from all over the United States from the desk of my home and guaranteed at least three job interviews to each individual. I was also responsible for coaching each individual on what to expect question wise and how to respond with the answer the employer was looking for. This field of work is not easy and all you have is your reputation on the line so you have to be the best at what you do.

So, I guarantee my abilities to help you gain a strong career opportunity. I have gotten a lot of comments from managers about my resume. I've done a lot of freelance writing, and it would make no sense to let someone outside my field tamper with it. EconGuy in Cornelius, North Carolina. Yeah or you're in a pool of equally qualified people and probably not as socially favorable. Despite what most people say looks and communications do matter..

EconGuy in Cornelius, North Carolina said: I would say being related to someone or being their friend trumps the looks thing. I've worked places where, suddenly, someone divulges how they are connected to some top boss. Even heard one admit they grew up with one of the top bosses. You never know how someone is connected, but the favoritism is always there. Yeah my scenario was next in line to that.

The best job I ever had I lost only to later find out the boss's cousin needed a job.. You can't even get that job anymore. I've also seen the relative and friend scenario bypass company policies..

Criminals getting jobs in public service companies with no-offender policies etc.. I actually know a guy right now with no work history and a long criminal record who gets job offers at least once a week without even applying..

I have a clean record, work history, and education and am stuck with unstable freelancing gigs that often don't cover.. I have been amazed at what liberties employees with connections take. Or how they are treated or given special privileges.

The managers don't even care how it sets up bad morale. I think a lot of women are really jealous of other women, so if they are getting a lot of attention, they won't want to hire another pretty woman. And that works that way too, if a woman is very competent. The star manager won't want someone under her who gets the limelight. You'd think the greedy CEOs or Presidents would put a stop to the waste of money created by politics.

Ruby Slippers in Las Vegas, Nevada. I hired my own mother once so never underestimate the power of "Who you know". Whenever there is a limited supply, there will be a "black market" for those goods.

It works both ways. People socially awkward for any reason are also marginalized even if the role requires no sales or support. The exception being exceptionally talented people in highly technical roles.

There is a lot of social regulations in play, and employers won't actually give you a reason why they didn't hire you in the US so it's entirely arbritrary and you'll go on not getting jobs and hit depressing financial states..

Yes, with a lot of science jobs, they aren't always going to get the sales-y types as top physicists, engineers, etc. Usually those types can go into technical support, or sales. But to do math or science well, one doesn't really NEED to be a good communicator. Al Einstein was noted to be different, and imagine him getting a job nowadays.

But it's all the loss of industry, putting so much value on the superficial. I would imagine a lot of really intelligent people have not been hired because of today's stupid parameters. I see it as the work opportunities are less than half the population needing work and people are going to hire the most skilled socially compatible person.

Unless the person is exceptionally talented. I made it to differential equations in mathematics and some economics , but I haven't seen it help any when applying.. Stuff is so complex these days you can no longer market and sale primitive products, and things take years to develop, so just doing the entrepreneur route can only be considered as long-term strategy unless you have an investor and sub out work.

I know what you mean about employers wanting to hire the best looking or most perky, most bubbly. I don't know how anyone can act that jacked up everyday without taking some kind of stimulant.

I am outgoing by nature, but I have a lot of times when I am not into fawning over others or smiling so much my face would hurt! Fiachra in Dublin, Ireland. I used a service that provided me with a great Linkedin profile and Cv. I would strongly recommend it to anyone. Moreover, I used writing services to write my research papers this one is checked: For cv and linkedin services I would strongly recommend superiorcvsireland. These resume writers provide unlimited free edits on your resume and cover letter until you get the job: You can't get much better than that.

Chiffy in Calgary, Alberta. I absolutely would recommend using a professional resume writing service. I graduated almost a year ago from university and had a really difficult time finding something in my field. I had great grades but limited experience. A friend of mine told me about clearlycreativeresumes. I was on my way to two interviews within a month because the resume they wrote for me stood out.

They wrote me a better resume than the one I had before, and also helped me write cover letters when I applied for each job. I think the key thing you have to do is to check and see if the company has any feedback or if they are willing to share samples with you so you know what you are getting into. I have read some of the comments on here and I noticed a few people are saying you shouldn't because you know yourself better than anyone else, I agree to some extend.

But I think in case like this, it can only help you to get the help from an outsider a professional. You could be missing so many things that someone else can essentially spot. It's always more difficult to be critical of our own work. So, I would highly recommend these guys at Clearly Creative Resumes clearlycreativeresumes.

I had mine written for me, cost me bucks. I can't say it was a complete waste as they were able to condense 17 pages of skills and knowledge into I finally had someone who works for the State Unemployment Department look over my resume They asked If I wrote it, I told them "no" I paid for it Now, the question is, did I kill all my chances of getting hired with the amount of resumes I submitted. If you really must have it written "professionally" I would ask to see other resumes like yours as an example of the work and the companies that hired those specific people.

I would also ask for some sort of "warranty" on the claims of hiring and referrals. If you really want to know if your resume is good, ask people out in public to read it over and ask if they would hire you based on the information I have found a cup of coffee works well as a bribe for this question.

But move me to the east coast and my rates would double instantly. I do believe it is better to write your own because only you know yourself best: It is less time and effort to take a few hours and just write the resume yourself.

My prior comment should've read "I ended up writing my own resume". Thanks for the advice. Are you currently unemployed U. Yep, I agree, a great resume helps in this market with very few jobs. That's why I write my own. Because I know my field. These arbitrary social regulations are drastically underestimated in my opinion..

I think we only see the tip of the iceberg. Can you ever be as qualified as the "boss's cousin? Math counts big time in a lot of science fields. Math is the language of science.
