While technology has helped to make jobs more accessible, it has also made the job search process — and the resume writing process — more nuanced. To have job search success, your resume has to appeal to both the resume scanning software and the hiring manager.
If you’re not trained to understand what each are looking for, your resume might be getting lost in the “resume black hole”. When you work with a resume writing service, you’re investing in a quicker job search, and a more fruitful and satisfying career.
A professionally written resume…
...helps you find a job faster.
Working with a professional resume writer ensures your resume will not be passed over by applicant tracking software. Over half of TopResume customers find their next job within 90 days of receiving their completed resume.
For every day you go without a job, you’re missing out on that day’s pay—even if this only shortens your job search by a day or two, you’ve made your money back and more.
...makes you more valuable in the eyes of recruiters and hiring managers.
Recruiters valued candidates with professionally written resume to be worth 7% more than when assessed using their self-written versions. With a professionally written resume, you can help ensure your next position will come with a bigger paycheck.
...saves you the most precious resource of all — your time.
Your time is valuable and finite. You can spend your precious free time writing an ineffective resume, or you can outsource the task to professionals, get your time back and see results faster.
TopResume uses the expert knowledge of our resume writers and feedback from resume-scanning software called an applicant tracking system (ATS). An ATS filters applicants based on keywords and formatting.
If your resume is not created with the ATS in mind, it may prevent you from securing callbacks and interviews for jobs. TopResume analyzes your resume using ATS technology and our expert writers break down this analysis to figure out how to make your resume more effective for the jobs you want.
Your writer collaborates with you on a first draft, which will be delivered to you in about a week. Then, you'll have another week to provide feedback to your writer, with up to two rounds of revisions. The process typically takes one to two weeks.

Our resume writers with expert knowledge of your industry are qualified in showcasing your accomplishments by using the same terminology, that hiring managers look for in your field. This means that important keywords, along with your skills and achievements, will stand out to hiring managers and satisfy all electronic screening tools.
Once you’re matched with the perfect writer for you, communication and collaboration are simple and effective. All communication with your writer is done via email.

We use your old resume and a resume worksheet, which is provided to you during the process as primary sources of information. If you don’t have a resume, don’t worry, your writer will send you a brief questionnaire that will provide all the information that we need to get started.
