Why are we A Better Resume?

Consumer Alert: Beware of Internet businesses without telephone numbers or addresses on their websites. We receive daily reports of job seekers making purchases and never receiving resumes. These businesses offer "irresistible" deals because they don't have to deliver on them. Some offer free services only to end up costing more than having a resume done professionally. You will not lose your money if you work with a local business. Do not give your credit card out unless you have first spoken to a real, live person. Be smart, shop local. We guarantee that you can find people out of state or out of the country who can offer you lower prices than we can, but we can also guarantee that some of them will simply take your money and vanish. Do not be fooled by made up credentials, false promises and slick websites. Scammers are experts at finding a way to take your money. Read on to see why you can trust us.

The 'A Better Resume Service Advantage'...

If you are seeking a professional service to assist in your career pursuits, we offer numerous benefits.

First, you get a fresh perspective on your employment potential. Our writers assess your goals, evaluate your work history and effectively market your achievements.

Second, you are working with the experts. Since a job search is, hopefully, something you will do only a handful of times, you are not an expert. However, we advise clients every day based on the Power Resume© training program, producing resumes that consistently get more interviews.

Lastly, you get a renewed sense of confidence. When you see your resume written and designed as a marketing tool far superior to what your competition is using, your new self-confidence will be as useful to you as the resume itself.

You are an individual! A Personalized Approach...

Our services are provided according to the needs of our clients. Our clients are diverse, with every person having a unique background. Every new client is treated as an individual who needs special attention to accomplish his or her goals. We work with our clients in person because, unlike other services, you are not just a datastream. Resume services are available alone, or as part of packages that include items such as cover letters, and PDF files. Call for a free consultation in Chicago (Loop), Chicago (Lakeview), Schaumburg, Oakbrook, Naperville or Tinley Park (800) 730-3244 to meet with a writer.
