The person I worked with was really great — very patient and understanding and understood the task at hand extremely well. I haven’t been on a job search in nearly twenty years, so my cv needed work! They were great and helping me shape a more professional and clear document. Highly recommend!

Elaborate and concise.

How TopResume delivers quality CVs.

The assigned consultant was helpful and open to suggestions in crafting my CV which made the final acceptance of the completed work easy since it was done with client's inputs/participation. What I liked were the nuggets of good suggestions given to me - probably gleaned from the company's large exposure to the job industry - in bite-size and easy- to- accept format. Great.

Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of a professionally written resume?

When you work with a resume writing service, you’re investing in a quicker job search and a more fruitful and satisfying career. To have job search success, your resume has to appeal to both the resume scanning software and the hiring manager — or else you risk getting lost in the resume black hole where your job application is dismissed without consideration because of your resume.

The resume process begins with us getting to know you and learning about your history and career goals. Once we’ve learned more about you, we’ll match you with a writer knowledgeable about your industry.

The resume process is simple! First, submit your existing resume or provide your career details. You’ll fill out an intake survey to provide your writer with accurate elements for your document. Then you’ll collaborate with a professional writer to craft a tailored resume. Finally, you’ll review and refine the draft to ensure it aligns with your career goals. Leaving you with a polished resume that showcases your strengths and maximizes your job search potential!

Our resume process is completely confidential and collaborative between the writer and the client.

All communication with your writer is done via our secure dashboard. If you would prefer telephone communication with your writer, you can add it on to your resume package for an additional fee.

The resume process begins with us getting to know you and learning about your history and career goals. Once we've learned more about you, we'll match you with a writer knowledgeable about your industry.
