My personal recommendation? For executive-level quality at fees of $500 or less, I'd go with either top-rated GreatResumesFast.com or ResumeWriters.com. Both will have you working one-on-one with a certified resume writer, and both do outstanding work at reasonable prices (resume & cover letter packages coming in just shy of $500). I review both companies - see pull-down menu above for 'All Resume Writing Services.'
If you want to ratchet it up a notch from there, keep the following in mind. Once a service begins charging more than $500 for an executive resume, it becomes more than just compensation for time spent on the project. It becomes compensation for better talent behind the writing. And therein lies the problem. A lot of companies want to charge the charge, but that kind of talent is elusive.
Erin Kennedy - Executive Resume Writer
We think Erin Kennedy may be one of those elusive talents. Beyond the requisite certification (see bullets below), Kennedy is a nationally published author and contributor to 10 best-selling career books. Kennedy specializes in executive branding. Through an in-depth consultative telephone interview and her unique data mining process, Erin and her team will assess your career - progression, accomplishments, objective - and develop a cutting-edge, value-branded marketing campaign that remains at its heart, authentically you.
Why such detail? Why such care and attention paid to a resume? Because the decision to call in a candidate for an upper echelon position can often swing on subtle branding techniques employed in the candidate's personal marketing campaign. When you're putting yourself out there as a candidate qualified for President, CEO, COO, CFO, or other senior/c-level position, the care and attention paid to your resume might just be the only thing separating you from your competitors. And ultimately, driving home the offer.
Here's What We Like About Erin Kennedy
The Bottom Line
Apologies for the cliche, but sometimes you really do get what you pay for. If a nod from a hiring committee means you land the COO position, Kennedy's thousand-dollar-plus resume will have been an excellent return on investment.
* If you see yourself benefiting from this top-flight writing team, we've secured a locked-in fee of $1695 through the link below -- if you want it. This is for Kennedy's Executive Resume Package, a service that could normally run up to $2995 depending upon your background.
BTW, if you're not quite a C-level exec but headed in that direction... Packages for mid-to-senior level professionals with 10+ years of experience are running at $849. Professionals with 5-8 years experience, $649.
