About TopResume

Leonardo da Vinci has been credited with writing the first resume in the form of a letter to a potential employer more than 500 years ago. In the 1940s, the resume became a requirement for employment and, even today, the resume continues to evolve with the digital age and growing technologies.

TopResume is leading this evolution of the resume and job-application process by helping applicants build their own personal brands—starting with a great resume.

TopResume is here to help turn your entire job application into an extraordinary one.

Our Background

The idea for TopResume came about when our CEO, Jeff Berger, was heading up the digital marketing division of Universum, the global employer-branding and research firm. While really considering the job seekers' needs, he identified a huge void in the career-services industry for personal branding and resume writing. When the idea for this new service took shape, the response was overwhelmingly positive, so TopResume (along with its parent company, Talent Inc.) emerged under Jeff's leadership in 2013 to fill this gap.

During four years of developing more than four million resumes for job seekers, as well as cover letters and LinkedIn profiles, TopResume has acquired several additional companies and continues to grow rapidly. We employ more than 300 professional writers to ensure we're providing the best resume-writing services to our clients, spanning various industries.

In 2015, we welcomed Amanda Augustine as our in-house Career Advice Expert. With more than a decade of experience in the job-search industry, she offers advice to our clients through our blog, which covers topics such as communication skills, networking, interview tips, and social media – all through the lens of career management and success.

That brings us to today. At TopResume, we understand the unique challenges job seekers face within the current market, and we're dedicated to providing custom resources for empowering them to overcome these obstacles. In North America and other regions where job candidates utilize resumes for advancing their careers or making job changes, TopResume offers unparalleled results to help you stand out on top.

We provide the highest-quality guidance at each step of your career journey.

Our Parent Company

TopResume operates under the umbrella of Talent Inc., a company dedicated to helping job seekers develop their personal brands and create the highest-quality resumes, curriculum vitae and other career advancement needs.

Talent Inc. was originally a business of Universum Global, the world's leading employer branding company. But our CEO, Jeff Berger, noticed a gap in the space of branding – that is, personal branding for job seekers. In 2012, he founded Talent Inc. to provide the much-needed service of resume writing.

Talent Inc. soon expanded to also provide services to those job seekers in other areas of the world, and in specific fields, who require curriculum vitae rather than resumes when applying for open positions. This branch of Talent Inc. is known as CVNow.
