Aside from resume writing service, do you offer other services that I can use?
Apart from resumes, our team of expert writers also prepare other documents that you can use to complement your resume. These add-on services include writing of cover letters, professionally written biography, LinkedIn Profile, statement of purpose for college admission, and many more.
Do the resumes you write pass the Applicant Tracking System (ATS)?
We are very confident that all the resumes that we write are ATS-friendly. It means that they are readable by most of the ATS software in the market. Their passing rate depends on the right content written in resumes, and here’s why. ATS is a software used by hiring managers to collect resumes that have the “qualifications they set”; those qualifications serve as keywords. If those keywords are not present in your resume or different from the ones set by the hiring manager, it will fail. That is why providing the link of your target job opening is very important to us. This is to ensure that we’ll be able to include the keywords that the hiring managers are looking for in your resume; thus, will ensure the passing rate of your resume.
We do not encourage everyone to trust the available systems that can be found online because those are not actual ATS used by hiring managers. They differ in their ability to sort and manage candidates based on the keywords present on their resumes. So, for example, while some ATS can screen the term ‘employee recruiting’, actual ones may prefer ‘employee recruitment’. Or an ATS might assign a higher grade when it sees the ‘project manager’ job title, and lower for the ‘project coordinator’—even if, say, both jobs have basically the same descriptions.
I like to have my resume checked first before I decide if I should sign up. Do you offer that?
Yes. We offer free resume critique to our clients, allowing them to assess the insights our resume writers have provided. If our clients wish to do the suggestions themselves, then it’s fine. If they wish to seek further advice from a professional resume writer, then our team of writers will be more than willing to guide you.
How many revisions do you offer?
Unlike most of the resume writing companies, we offer unlimited number of revisions to unfinished projects within the prescribed period for the particular package ordered until the client is completely satisfied. Take note, though, that revision refers to the modification of resume content targeted to the objective you mentioned in the questionnaire or conveyed to your resume writer. Changing the objective during the revision process isn’t considered a revision; hence, in this case, you need to purchase an additional resume for a new target job.
In what file format will my completed resume be when delivered to me?
Regardless of the file format of your old resume, we always work on our clients’ resumes in Word and PDF formats. This standard aims to help you make minor adjustments on your own resume as you see fit using the Word format. The PDF version allows you to see the actual formatting used in your resume. Apart from these formats, we send final copies of federal resumes in ASCII formats as part of the inclusions of our federal resume writing service.
Do you offer resume updates once the project has already been completed?
We only offer free resume updates to finalized projects within the prescribed period for the particular package ordered. The updates involved refer to minor changes, addition, and/or removal of resume content, such as contact information, address, and latest job position and responsibilities. However, a minimal fee might be required if your package is already expired. You may read more about our Project Agreement.
Do you submit resumes to specific companies?
No, but we can submit them to top 25 job boards in the United States. With years of experience in this industry, Resume Professional Writers has mastered the art of job board posting. We offer this service to let potential employers find you at your own convenience. Our job board posting service involves boosting your exposure to the job market—minus the hassle.
What is “lifetime storage”?
We keep the best interests of our clients in mind. Therefore, we offer this service which entails lifetime storage of your documents. This comes in handy during situations that include accidentally misplacing your resume or having your resume undergo an update. Hiring this service allows for convenience both on our part since it will save time spent in rewriting your whole resume instead of simply asking for a backup copy.
Do you write generic resumes?
We can indicate that in your resume under background and objectives. But, you must realize that it is a big no-no if you have different career objectives in multiple areas. A resume, after all, should be custom-fitted to one specific career to highlight your competencies effectively.
Can you write a resume for career changers?
Yes, our writers are skilled in working with different types of resumes depending on the clients’ objectives. That is why we encourage our clients to fill up the questionnaire diligently because all of the information that you submit to us is essential on how we will write your resume.
How much does it cost to have someone write your resume?
Hiring resume writers costs differently based on the firm and type of resume—entry level, mid-career, or executive resume. Usually, resume writing service rates range from $99 to $800. There are resume writing companies that charge lower or higher than that range.
How much does the service of a resume writer cost?
Resume writing services rates depend on the requirement of the client. For RPW, our resume packages start from $125 up to $485, which, of course, differs in the quantity and add-ons of the package a client ordered.

You may skip the items in the questionnaire that were already covered in your old resume. You may also request for a phone conversation if you need further assistance or if you wish to convey specific instructions.
When finished uploading your answered questionnaire and old resume, wait for our email regarding the delivery date of the first draft of your resume. The turnaround time will vary depending on the package you have purchased.
How soon will I get my resume?

It is still subject for your review. The turnaround time does not include weekends and holidays. Four (4) business days for the Basic package, three (3) business days for the Deluxe, two (2) business days for Premium, and one (1) business day for the Ultimate package.

We work with clients around the world through our project management system, telephone, email, and rarely fax.

This also allows us to reach out to as many clients as possible, wherever they are.
