Frequently Asked Questions

If you don't see your question, just ask.


Why should you hire a resume writer?

It's important to have someone with experience in resume writing work on your resume for you. They offer a level of objectivity that is required to emphasize your strengths, downplay weaknesses, and position you for success. They know how to correctly target your career and industry and they understand what hiring managers are looking for. The job market is more competitive now with electronic job postings. With so many candidates chasing the same opportunity, a professionally written resume helps you stand out and gain an edge against the competition.

Does my resume impact my salary?

Your resume can greatly influence your salary as well as the number of interviews and quality offers you receive. Your resume is the first step of the hiring manager determining your professional value. Your resume is one of the most important financial documents you can invest in to maximize salary options for your career.

Why choose Century Resume?

Century Resume is a trusted provider of professionally written resumes and LinkedIn profiles. I offer high-quality resumes in a TIMELY manner - providing clients with a resume package that provides IMMEDIATE results. My clients are successful because their resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile are keyword oriented to match the type of career they are pursuing. No one offers such superior quality and fast turnaround time.

What is your turnaround time?

After I collect all the necessary information from you and receive payment, I will get the first resume draft completed within 3 business days. Once you approve the resume, I will start working on your LinkedIn profile immediately (if ordered).

How do you format the resume docs?

All resumes are handcrafted for each client. You don't want a resume that is difficult to read. The key is to let your experience do the talking without having a distracting format. If you have any concerns about the resume format, I will show you a wide array of resume options, and you can choose how you want your resume to look. Otherwise, I will choose the format that will work best based on your specific information.

*Due to the significant time investment of each resume, I can't change the format after the resume is created.

What is your writing process?

Each resume is handcrafted to align your experience, skills, and ability with your FUTURE career goals. The first visual impression is KEY – your document needs to look good and be balanced. When someone reads your resume, it should offer powerful information that highlights your most important accomplishments and gets you an interview. I don't take any risks when it comes to the most important document of your career. I collect information from your current resume or information gathering form, your personal input, and my own research and experience. Your resume documents will be handcrafted and unique to your specific job industry – no mass-market generic text or resumes templates. Your resume is created for you with the quality care that it takes to get the job NOW!

Do you specialize in my field?

I specialize in resume writing. I have written resumes for hundreds of professionals in all types of industries. CEO's, C-level executives, directors, managers, nurses, IT, police officers, consultants, administrators, project managers, and much more. I have written for almost every single industry, crafting resumes that are high-quality and emphasize your unique skills and accomplishments—utilizing an attention-getting professional resume that will get the hiring managers attention. Some of the most common industries are: • Communications
• Consulting
• Financial Services
• Insurance • Information Technology • Retail • Sales & Marketing If your field is not on that list, my expertise and process will still help you stand out and land your dream job!

What type of guarantee do you provide? Do you offer refunds?

Due to the significant time investment of each resume and the digital nature of the documents, no refunds will be offered after we start writing the resume documents, but I will work hard to ensure you are satisfied with the resume documents.

What is your price structure?

Keep in mind that you get what you pay for and if you don't have a return on investment from your resume; your money will be wasted. It takes 4 to 7+ hours to produce a world-class professional resume, depending on your career level, length of work history, and amount of responsibility. Does the total price based on these hours reflect an assembly line approach? Or does the rate reflect the services of a small successful business owner with years' experience writing resumes? Investing just a little bit more in a quality provider could mean the difference in your career.

What type of payment do you accept? How do I order?

You can pay directly on the website. If you wish to add on a service after your order has been placed, I will email you an invoice through PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can pay via credit card using the link in the email. You can order directly on my website or I can email you a PayPal invoice.

Do you meet with clients in person?

Due to the extensive time investment of each resume portfolio, I do not meet with clients in person. The business is growing and I need to dedicate as much time as possible to writing great resume documents. There is an option to set up a phone consultation after your order is placed.
