What to expect when you work with TopResume.

You know that a professionally written resume is key to an improved job search. In fact, it's been proven that a resume written by an expert makes you 32 percent more likely to land a job and worthy of a higher salary.

Now, you're looking to take the plunge toward a shorter, better job search. But what is it actually like to work with a professional resume writer? Here, we've outlined the steps of the TopResume process. When you choose to upgrade your job search, your experience will look something like this:

Consider your options

TopResume offers three different professional resume-writing packages to choose from based on your needs. Whether you want only a resume rewrite or are seeking a cover letter and LinkedIn overhaul, you can pick what's best for you. Learn more here.

Sign up

Once you've decided to up your job-search game, it's time to place your order. To sign up and purchase your package, you can go to this link or reach us by phone at 1-800-604-1929. A TopResume representative is available to speak with you Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Complete the questionnaire

Upon placing your order, you'll be sent a questionnaire asking for information about your career. Expect to include your current resume, job listings that interest you, and details like your key strengths, major accomplishments, and job-search concerns.

You may wonder why your resume alone isn't enough. Well, your resume only tells us what you did in the past, and we need some insight into your future goals so we can help you get there. Additionally, some of the most-precious gems of your work history may not be in your current resume. Your writer needs all the information about your career story so they can highlight the absolute best bits.

Since this is the information your writer will use to craft your new resume, it's important to be as thorough as possible.

Add some special features

As you complete your questionnaire, you'll be given the option to upgrade your order and further boost your job search. You can add a phone consultation with your writer or thank-you letter for when you follow up after an interview, plus extra bonuses like a 48-hour rush service and online distribution for your resume.

Meet your match

Our network features over 1,000 professional writers across a variety of industries. Your questionnaire will give us insight into your industry, goals, and needs, and we'll use that information to match you with the expert best poised to make your career story shine.

Sit tight

Your writer will work their magic. Expect to receive a Word document in your inbox that contains your first draft. This will be delivered within seven business days of the submission of your questionnaire.

In the meantime, you can check out these tips for what to do while waiting to set you up for a more successful job search.

Provide feedback

Because your voice matters, you will have the opportunity to provide feedback for your writer. Through email, you can work together on up to two revisions of your new resume, to be completed within seven business days of receiving your initial draft.

Seal the deal

After collaborating with your writer, the final draft awaits. Download your polished, professional document and get ready for a renewed job search. With interviews surely on the horizon, you may want to consider preparing with the help of an interview coach.

Land the job

Armed with a shiny new resume, you're ready to tackle the job search. We wish you the best of luck as you submit your professionally written resume — if you're anything like our past customers, you'll be signing a contract in no time.

If 60 days of job hunting goes by and you haven't received double the amount of interviews, some resume-writing packages are eligible for a rewrite, free of charge. Just let us know and we'll take another look.
