What are the benefits of a professionally written resume?

When you work with a resume writing service, you are investing in yourself. Many find it difficult to write about their success and accomplishments. This is the time to sing the praises of all that you have done. A good resume needs to appeal to both the resume scanning software and the hiring manager.

What if I don't have a resume?

Writing your first-ever resume is a challenge, Ashley's Resume Service is here to help! We have a downloadable template to get you started. All experience counts and the best way you present yourself, skills, and assets to a hiring manager is to provide them with a strong resume that showcases your unique talent.

Why should you invest in your career?

The average length of a job search is approximately 25 weeks or less. In today’s competitive job market, a well-written targeted, keyword-rich, accomplishment-driven resume is your best change of grabbing your employer’s attention. For every week you’re unemployed or underemployed you’re missing out a lot of money. A professionally written resume is guaranteed to get you more interviews to land the job you want, faster. Even if this shortens your job search by just a day or two, you’ve made your money back, and then some. Think of it as an investment in your earning power.

How does the resume-writing process work?

The resume writing process begins with us getting to know more about you and your history as well as career goals via an initial consultation. Pricing and turnaround times may vary and depend solely on how much work is needed to recreate/update your resume.  You will be asked to upload a current copy of your resume. If you do not have a current copy, a resume template will be made available for you to download and submit. See our "Steps to Success" on the Book Now! page.

How soon will I receive my documents?

Once we have received your payment as well as your current resume or relevant documents or the completed questionnaire, you will have your initial draft within 5-7 business days (excluding Saturdays and Sundays).  After carefully reviewing it, please advise us if we can then prepare the final copy or if you have edits/revisions. If you require an expedited turn around, please let us know and we will try to accommodate your request the best we can.

How do I receive hard copies of my resume?

All of our resume services come with ten (10) copies of your professional resume, printed on high quality paper and mailed to you.  Please ensure you provide us with your mailing address if it is different than what is listed on your resume. If you need your physical copies expedited please let us know.

How often should you update your resume?

Updating your resume is an ongoing process. You should keep your resume up to date, as you never know when an unexpected opportunity may present itself. You won't have to "get ready", if you "stay ready".  Ideally, you should add to or update your resume, as you acquire additional skills, take on more responsibility, increase your education or training and any time you promote successes or milestones in your professional development.

What if you aren’t familiar with my industry?

We have a team of experts in a number of fields and industries with decades of professional development, hiring, and management skills. We have yet to come across an industry or client we were unable to provide our stellar services for.  Before we began drafting or editing your professional documents, we typically schedule a consultation. If we have received your requested documents beforehand, we can discuss any specialties or nuances you may have in your distinct industry. Feel free to use that time to ask any questions.
