Can I talk to my resume writer?
We work with clients around the world via telephone, email, and fax. These are the most practical and convenient ways to talk to your writer, so you won’t have to spend a single cent only to meet us personally to discuss specifics.

You may check out our other resume services for more information.
How does Resume Professional Writers serve clients?
An employer spends about 15-30 seconds looking at your resume before deciding if you are deserving of an interview. That’s why it pays to make sure you do it right the very first time you communicate with them. If your resume fails to catch their attention within that short span of time, you lose all your chance. Of course, you wouldn’t want that to happen. This is where Resume Professional Writers is good at! We encourage you to discuss your details with us through a phone conversation. It allows us to develop an in-depth understanding of your distinguishing characteristics and abilities. From this, we can create a professional, self-marketing document written just for you.
Do the resumes you write pass the Applicant Tracking System (ATS)?
Most companies rely on the ATS for their screening process. Having that said, although we can use ATS to check whether or not the resumes we make pass the screening; we don’t depend on the ATS systems, and here’s why. There are several screening systems available online that 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’, others 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.
How soon will I get my resume?
Once we have your payment and the completed questionnaire or copy of your resume, it will only take one (1) to two (2) business days (excluding Saturdays and Sundays) for you to have your initial draft. After carefully reviewing it, please inform us if we can then prepare the final copy or if there is a need for revision. Let us also know if you wish to expedite the process and we will try to accommodate your request the best we can.
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.
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; while having a PDF version that 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.
Help and Support
Do you recommend industry-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. If you will be doing the same type of work in a different industry, such as sporting goods sales from car sales, we can highlight your sales skills that will make you qualified for the position.
What is your signup process?
Choose the resume package that you are interested in. Then sign up online to our secure page. Once we received your order, you will automatically receive a questionnaire along with an order receipt. You have the option to either disregard the questionnaire or submit your own draft (existing resume). Whichever is available, fax or email it to us. You may also request for a phone conversation if you need further assistance or if you wish to convey specific instructions.
What do I receive once I sign up to your service?
Depending on the resume service package you choose, you will receive other package inclusions apart from the resume itself. For more information, you can check our resume writing services to determine what you need.
How many revisions do you offer?
We offer unlimited number of revisions to unfinished projects within the prescribed period for the particular package ordered until you fully approve of the document. 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 new target job.
What is the 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 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. In some cases, however, a minimal fee might be required. You may read more about our Project Agreement.
How does your 60-day interview guarantee work?
If within 60 days of delivery of your resume package you have not received any interviews, contact us by email or by phone at 1-800-845-0586 to let us know. We will then update your resume and deliver it to you within 3 business days. The guarantee is valid within 60 days, which starts after the delivery of the final resume via email. There are no other conditions or limitations to this guarantee, so please email or call us with any questions.
How do I reactivate my projects once it has expired?
Regardless of the service package, all not started and unfinished projects expire. These include resume writing services, LinkedIn Profile optimization, job board posting, and other add-on services. As for the reactivation of projects, the fee would depend on the situation. You may read more about our Project Agreement.
Can I ask for a refund if I’m not satisfied with the result?
Resume Professional Writers reserves the right not to honor specific requests for refund made by the client. Nonetheless, we grant refunds given justified reasons, including cancellation of service owing to dissatisfaction with the quality of the service received. You may read more about our Project Agreement.
