Where are you located and how do you work effectively with me?
We have offices in California, Florida, New York, and Boston, and most of our clients are in every city all over the country. The majority of résumé writing services work via phone and email with people. Since we will have a copy of your résumé and other documents, and will be working with you extensively on the phone, it is not necessary to meet with you in person. The crux of the work is performed after we talk with you and learn about your specific goals.
What are your credentials?
The founders of JC Resumes are former partners of top executive recruiting firms, as are many of the writers and project managers. They have extensive experience in the business of talent acquisition and career consulting, having worked closely with many decision-makers and hiring managers at Fortune 500 companies. In addition to careers in executive recruiting, the professionals at JC Resumes have all spent a minimum of 3 years each honing writing skills as editors, copyeditors, or other professional writing capacities.
The team at JCResumes.com has written, revised, and edited thousands of resumes during their combined careers, and helped hundreds of people to land interviews, to get a foot in the door at desired companies, and to take the next steps in their careers. After noting over the years that many people only received interview invitations after having their resumes revised by HR professionals, the founders of JC Resumes created the service to address the need for resume writing and career consulting from an inside point of view.
Why should I pay to have my résumé re-written?
It is hard for anyone to produce quality material selling his or herself objectively. The average job seeker only has to revise a résumé five to ten times in his or her entire career. Professional Résumé writers revise and edit hundreds of résumés per week. Our résumé writers have also worked in the hiring industry as well as the copyediting business and know exactly what recruiters and hiring managers are looking for.
How are you different from other résumé writers?
In addition to providing all the typical services that one might expect from a professional résumé writer, such as copyediting, formatting, and error-checking your résumé, we also tailor your résumé specifically to the job descriptions to which you are planning to apply, using our expert knowledge of the hiring industry and writing experience to ensure you are conveyed as a top candidate. We use our knowledge of industry-specific words and phrases to emphasize your leadership experience and draw attention to your notable accomplishments.
What is your turnaround time?
We guarantee a turnaround time of 3 business days, unless you opt to purchase expedited service for 1 or 2 business days.
What other services can you provide?
