Resume Writing Service

"I have been very happy with both the review and the rewrite of my resume. Factually, I posted the new targeted version on several Internet sites as soon as I received it and my 'hits' went up dramatically that day on all the sites and have stayed up. I received one call the first evening and have received several other calls since."
                                                        - Greg M., Distribution Manager

Our Personalized Approach - We Take the Time to Learn about You

With our resume writing service, a professional resume writer consults with you one-on-one prior to writing your resume.  We review your existing resume and e-mail you questions specific to each of the positions you have held to uncover critical information and to fully understand your unique situation. We use your responses to develop a resume that is focused on your target job objective, highlights your experience and accomplishments, and incorporates relevant keywords.  

We believe our personalized approach draws out your experiences and skills that best match your job objective, experiences and skills unlikely to be uncovered without taking the time to consult with you prior to writing your resume.  

How We Use Your Responses

Your responses to our specific questions for each of the positions you have held are used to:

  • Focus your resume on your target job objective 

  • Fine-tune existing resume content  

  • Create new content to demonstrate how you are qualified for your target job  

  • Develop specific, quantifiable resume bullets that highlight your accomplishments

  • Produce a keyword-rich resume that performs well when searched by employers by incorporating industry-specific and job function-related buzzwords and jargon 

We feel our personalized approach enables us to best identify and present your unique strengths for the type of job you are seeking.  Our approach to developing your resume does require a time commitment on your part to provide us with quality responses to our questions.

"All is as well as can be expected, thank you for the sentiment. I hope all is going well with you too. If the cover letter and resume are any sort  of measure, you should be doing very well for yourself. Thank you very much for the outstanding job on both my cover letter and resume. This is far better than I could have done for myself. Now let's see what sort of results I get. ;-)  I don't see any obvious changes to be made, but may "tweak" it a bit, depending on the situation.  Thank you again for your work. I'll definitely be recommending you to my friends."
                                       
-B.B., Account Manager

How We Differ from Other Resume Writing Services

The personalized approach we follow to write your resume differs from that of many other resume writing services.  These companies have you complete a generic form about your background, type up and format the information you provide, and forward you your completed resume.  They have no direct contact with you throughout the process.  They don't take the time to develop specific questions for each of the positions you have held to uncover your unique strengths.  Rather than relying on their expertise, they put the burden on you to know what information you should provide them to produce an effective resume.  If you are looking for a resume writing service that takes the information you provide in a generic form and converts it to a resume format without doing any additional fact-finding, we aren't the right resume writing service for you. 

How is the Completed Resume Delivered to Me?

Once we complete the draft version of your resume, we will e-mail it to you in MS Word format for your review and comment. After incorporating the changes you requested, the final version of your resume will be forwarded to you via e-mail. 

How Long Does It Take?

We do not pride ourselves on our speed.  We want to take our time to produce a quality product.  Our personalized approach of asking you specific questions about the positions you have held and waiting for you to e-mail your responses takes time, but results in a stronger resume.  In most cases, your resume would be completed within 7-10 business days after receiving your responses.

"I'm very impressed with your work. Your questions all along were very thoughtful, so I had a feeling you were really going to pull some depth and direction to my experiences. Thanks a lot. I really appreciate this change and look forward to the responses I get from this."
                                           - Y.E., Senior V.P. of Marketing

Why Quest?

Picking the right company to develop your resume is tough.  How do you know who you can trust?  Here's why you can feel comfortable working with Quest:

  • We consult with you prior to developing your resume.  Our number one strength that separates us from most other resume writing services is the personalized approach we take to developing your resume.  Most other resume writing services have you complete a form about your background, type up the information you provided, and send you your completed resume.  Through this entire process, they have no direct contact with you.  To create the most effective resume for you, we consult with you via e-mail to ask questions about your background prior to writing your resume.  We feel this personalized approach results in a more effective resume than could be produced without having direct contact with you.

  • We publish our pricing on our web site and we are competitively priced for the consultation-based resume writing service we provide.

  • We have a track record of satisfying customers as demonstrated by our client testimonials.

  • We provide sample resume examples on our site so you know what to expect from us.

  • We present our capabilities in a professional manner that reflects our approach to how we will present your capabilities.

    "Hello, I just wanted to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the great job you did on my resume.  The number of responses I received during my job search increased 3 times since I started sending out my new resume and now I have received an offer for employment. Thanks again."

We will convert your existing CV to a standard US resume format that effectively presents your qualifications, skills, and experience in the most positive light.  We recommend that US resumes not exceed 2 pages in length.  We would follow the same consultative process for resume development that we use with our standard resume writing service as described above to create a 1-2 page resume for you.

Cover Letter Service

Including a cover letter with your resume is important for three reasons.  First, it shows that you understand the hiring process and the importance of conveying a professional image.  A second reason for including a cover letter is to use the cover letter to generate enough interest in you to have the employer decide to take the time to read your more detailed resume. Finally, the cover letter can be used to highlight a key qualification or accomplishment that was called out in the requirements for the position you are seeking.  By doing so, you immediately begin to establish yourself as a qualified candidate for the job.

With our cover letter service, a Quest Career Transition Consultant will develop a cover letter that highlights your unique strengths.  A draft of the cover letter will be submitted to you for your review and comment via e-mail.   The final version will also be provided to you via e-mail.

Generic Employer Cover Letter

The fee for developing a generic employer cover letter is $59 if ordered in addition to our resume writing service or resume marketability critique service, $79 if ordered without either of these resume services.  If ordered without our resume writing service, you would submit your existing resume to us via e-mail for us to use to develop your cover letter.

We are no longer offering this service. We are now focused on strictly providing company-sponsored outplacement services.
