Have you/someone you know ever used a resume writing service?

I've heard recently the niche of resume writing has gotten quite large and it was interesting to me as I never really considered using it even though the idea of paying 50 bucks to put my best foot forward in the application stage is probably a no brainer, I also haven't been on the job hunt for a few years.


Have any of you used a service like this before and if so

  • What did it cost
  • What did they provide (1 and done, rewrites, etc)
  • How did you pick who to use
  • Did you find you landed more interviews after


Full disclosure I've always just used the build a resume function from Linkedin so I'm unaware of what else is out there really

Would you pay for a professional resume?

I was provided with one as part of my layoff package last Christmas. It was very helpful but I'm not sure I would pay for it out of pocket.

I have and it was a big waste of money and time. I got better help for free here and it was much faster and less bullshit.

They're typically such a scam. Find a friend and review each others' resumes.

If you’re smart you don’t need a professional. But having outside eyes look at it in a critical way is very helpful.

I amalgamated free information from those resume peoples’ TikTok accounts and made my own. Studied the top formats and wording etc. Did this when I hadn’t updated my resume in a few years. Then posted it here for tweaks.
