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.
