My resume reviewer

My resume reviewer, Kyla D., was fast, professional, and very astute on how to change my resume from sounding overly military to one which any civilian HR could easily digest and understand. I feel fortunate to have had Kyla as my reviewer. I would recommend TopResume to anyone seeking to improve their professional portrait.

The investment is well worth the cost!

I'm very pleased with the quality and services provided by TopResume. They set and met expectations and communicated every step of the way. I never once felt like I had fallen off their radar. The writer assigned to me, Kathleen S, deserves a vacation for her work! After a 25+ year career in the Armed Forces (in a variety of career fields) and a few jobs since the military, I had a lengthy resume. While filled with skills, strengths and accomplishments, it lacked focus, energy and quite frankly needed an overhaul. That's exactly what Kathleen did, She overhauled my resume - content and format - and provided me a new one that is focused, articulate and appealing. TopResume provides their clients the opportunity to collaborate with the resume writer over the phone which I did. I believe this was helpful to the process. I'm confident this new resume will represent me well with recruiters and potential employers. Same goes for the LinkedIn profile and cover letter that Kathleen created. The investment was well worth the cost. I highly recommend TopResume and will not hesitate to use their services again. Thank you!

Being a career soldier in the Army for…

Being a career soldier in the Army for over 20 years, I never dealt with or even had a resume to prepare myself for the after career. I recently did a resume and had TopResume take a look at it and they gave me some real excellent feedback. I decided to have them help me with both the resume and LinkedIn service and they did an phenomenal job. I’m starting to get a lot of attention for my skills. They really helped me articulate and showcase my 29 years of service into understandable civilian terms. Thank you TopResume.
