Frequently Asked Questions


HOW DOES THE RESUMES TODAY PROCESS WORK?

We have a talented group of writers and designers that can help make your resume sound and look its best. After completing the checkout process, you will receive an email requesting your existing resume and for you to provide any special instructions. After checkout, you will be prompted to upload your current resume. We can ONLY accept  Word & PDFs please, no links, google docs or drop box links.

Within the notes section of the order confirmation page, please provide some general information about your content goals and career ambitions. You will hear from your writing professional within 1 business day of making your purchase.

Your resume writer will reach out to you via email and you will need to return the written questionnaire to start the process  ( All international customers will receive a written questionnaire ).

You will receive your 1st draft within 3 business days after we receive your completed questionnaire or within five business days from the phone interview. Once the 1st draft has been delivered, we will require your clear and objective feedback. After this collaboration with your writer, they will then provide your next draft within an additional 1 to 2 business days.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Our resume writing services are between $79 and $200 for the Professional Level and $259 for the Executive Level. Each additional page is $10.  If you would like to use custom colors that we do not currently offer on our site, you can purchase that option for $20.

WHAT IF I NEED TO MAKE UPDATES TO MY RESUME IN THE FUTURE?

If you would like to make changes to the text of your resume at any time after you have approved the design, you can purchase additional revisions for $10 (2 business day turnaround) or $25 (1 business day turnaround.) Keep in mind that these additional revisions only include changes to the text on your resume. If you would like to use a different design, you will need to shop for another resume.

WILL MY RESUME LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE ONES IN THE PHOTOS?

No. The designs on the site are samples and references. Your unique resume will be based on the design that you choose, but we will customize it to work with your content. Since everyone's content and preferences are different, your resume will not look exactly like the design you choose.

WHAT DO I RECEIVE?

We will email you a high-resolution PDF of your resume suitable for printing, emailing, or uploading. We shall also send an editable, coordinating version in Microsoft Word (can also be opened in Pages for Mac.)

CAN I RECEIVE EDITABLE FILES FOR MY RESUME DESIGN SO THAT I CAN MAKE CHANGES TO IT MYSELF?

Some of our resume layouts are created in Adobe and therefore can only be modified in that same program. Most of our resumes can be updated and revised in Microsoft Word. All Professional/ Traditional resumes are generated in Microsoft Word, and you will have the freedom to make revisions as you see fit.

DOES RESUMES TODAY CREATE RESUMES FROM SCRATCH?

Yes, we provide resume writing from scratch with prices starting at $200. All content services include a phone interview or email questionnaire, to begin the editing process. Your writer will ask you about your goals and any concerns with your current resume and offer professional editing for typographical errors, clarity of wording, and content consistency. Your writer will correct mistakes and will re-word items that could be confusing to a hiring manager. Also, your resume-writer will provide suggestions to improve your content and to present yourself in the best possible light.

WHEN DO I UPLOAD MY RESUME?

You will be prompted to upload your resume directly after your order is completed via email, along with any special instructions for our Career Specialist.
