In a nutshell
Wasn't sure what he wanted, needed affordable fix.
Eric has struggled to find work for quite a while. He's intelligent, but on paper was never the perfect fit for any employer looking at his old resume. And, he wasn't ready to spend a lot of money on something that already felt "good enough."
Eric used the kitchen-sink approach to resume writing and threw everything he might want to do into one page. This is a problem for a number of reasons, even if everything he talks about is right. First, we wove all his objectives together to help them relate to each other, in a narrative that made sense. Second, we replaced vague skills like "interpersonal communications" with specific assets like "complex calendar management." In Eric's situation, specific reads much better to both the human eye and sorting algorithms (computer programs that let hiring managers find people with certain skillsets).
We also spent some time with the presentation. A great confident story needs a look to match, so we went with a more professional look than his unformatted resume. Overall, I was happy we could get so much done with just the Professional Growth package!
I bought TopResume's resume review and have been recommending it to all of my friends. Applying for jobs online is like fishing - you're only going to catch something if you have good bait. TopResume gives you that bait... Worth every penny.
Eric bought the Professional Growth package. This package includes the essentials to get your resume past all human and technical filters:
I was hesitant to pay for these services, but my resume needed some serious help. It wasn't a week after I received my updated resume, and I was offered a position. The staff was extremely helpful and responsive-- they were thorough in asking what I wanted and the goals I was hoping to achieve. 10/10-- would recommend to anyone.
TopResume's price was more than reasonable, the turnaround time was rapid, the service was exemplary, and the product was top-notch. I don't have any concerns about recommending TopResume to anyone, regardless of where you're at in your career.
Excellent service. My writer was able to take a jumbled mess that eventually became 6 un-edited pages of job duties and responsibilities and turned it into a two-page concise document that represents me in a professional manner.
We crafted a plan that was exactly what Eric needed.
