I built Great Resumes Fast as a values-based company, and I endeavor every day to keep it that way. We strive to treat our clients the way we would want to be treated if we were having our resumes professionally written by someone.
The writers on my staff are some of the best in the business. Lower-priced sites tend to utilize mostly junior-level, newly certified or non-certified writers. I know because I used to compete with their services—and the quality of the writers and the documents they produced served only to create more issues than successes for my clients.
One day I finally decided enough was enough. I didn’t want my clients to have OK resumes that may or may not work for them; I wanted my clients to have the BEST resumes. A resume they were proud to use—and delivered great results. In order to provide my clients with the best resumes, I had to find the best writers. So I started searching for writers who had been published in resume-writing books, had earned extra certifications or higher credentials, and had won resume-industry awards—veteran writers who knew how to craft a resume that was brand-driven and accomplishment-focused.
Every resume we create is structured around your personal brand. It tells your story, communicates the value you offer potential employers, and focuses on your results and successes. One of the things we offer that others do not is a comprehensive resume and personal branding strategy session. It’s not just a phone call to go over your resume and career history—it is a highly consultative and collaborative information-gathering session where your writer draws out valuable information to brand you, your job search, your LinkedIn profile (if you choose to have us write that as well), and any other documents your writer is crafting for you.
We offer our clients a highly customized and personalized service that other companies simply cannot compete with—and do not offer. That’s why their prices are so low. There’s no way they could offer a service as in-depth and personalized as ours at fees that low.
I also make myself personally available to my clients so that I can answer questions and assist them at any point during the process. It’s important to me that my clients know who they’re working with and what we stand for. I’m not so sure other resume services are as customer-focused and transparent.
