This year, the company called resumewriters.com is said to celebrate 20 years of business. According to the information given on their official website, during this time, they’ve served a quarter million customers and employed writers in over 70 disciplines. They also mention a 99% customer satisfaction rate.
Still, their reputation outside of this website doesn’t fit the numbers on the site itself. Some customers have shared positive feedback, but others have had the opposite experience with the writers at this service. Which one is the truth and how great resumewriters.com are, you can read in this review.
Range of services
There are eight types of services and plenty of package options. You can just get a resume or choose a package with some add-ons, such as a cover letter. For example, the student resume can come in combination with a cover letter and LinkedIn profile service.
Other services offered are the professional resume and packages, executive resume and packages, career change resume and packages, military to civilian resume and packages, tech or IT resume or packages, and the CV service or a combined package. As for the LinkedIn assistance, you can purchase this service separately or as an add-on to the packages we just listed.
Prices, discounts and special features
Prices are given to each package and apply to a turnaround of 72 hours. The student resume service comes at a cost of $169.95, but if you want to add a cover letter to this, you’ll have to pay extra $70. For the student resume ‘arsenal’ that combines an electronic resume, a follow-up, and a cover letter is charged $259.95.
That’s just the student resume service, which comes at the lowest available price. If you want to get an executive resume or a package, rates range between $299 and $389.
As you can note, prices at resumewriters.com are much higher than what we are used to see on this resume writing market. A single resume costs as much as an entirely prepared package with other companies. This would perhaps be acceptable with some discounts or, if the company had a better reputation, but unfortunately, neither is the case here.
As for special features, almost all features here are paid and part of their add-ons program. The only thing that applies to every order you make is the direct communication with the writer of the resume, which is actually a great advantage.
Writers certification and guarantees
Except for some limited information about the writers’ fields of expertise and a mention of their professionalism, we found nothing on Resumewriters that would tell us about their certifications. As for guarantees, the company has a revision guarantee in the case that you don’t land an interview. However, even this guarantee is a bit vague and poorly created, since you’d have to wait for 60 days for an interview before you are even entitled to a revision. Most similar companies set this guarantee to be valid after 30 days only.
Quality of an ordered product
Based on the price we paid and the long work of the service on this market, we expected an excellent work from their writers. The work wasn’t bad at all and our package was delivered within the timeframe of 72 hours. However, the resume was a bit too general and not at all focused on the job descriptions we sent, and it wouldn’t give the customer many chances at an interview as a result of this.
The only deadline presented on the website of ResumeWriters is the standard turnaround. Perhaps you can get a shorter deadline if you ask for it, but considering how high their rates are for even this deadline, that will probably come at a much higher price.
For a deadline of three days, the prices are quite exaggerated. This service has been available to customers for a long time now, but considering that customers of resume companies are in search for job and income, we hardly believe that many spend so much money on resume help.
The customer support is very good and available for customers non-stop. We discussed with them our order details and the agent helped us place the order. After that, our conversation was switched to a talk with the writer, who was not as responsive as we expected. Basically, he asked a couple of questions when we placed the order, and didn’t reply to our messages until he delivered in 72 hours later.
Resumewriters.com has been available to job seekers and students for 20 years now, but their prices are over the roof and there are no discounts to reduce them. Even though the quality is quite good, it is not sufficiently good considering how highly priced the services and packages at this company are.
