A resume company has a big obligation toward their customers. They don’t just have to write flawless content in the form of a job application. They have to create an application piece that represents the customer in the best light possible, fits the requirements of the employer they want to work for, and make them a good candidate for a job position. There’s a lot of power in a resume, but only if the company who writes it knows how to leverage it. The goal of our review is to find out if careersbooster.com can do this or not.
Range of services
Everything you might be asked to submit as part of the job application, you can find it at careersbooster.com. They don’t just hand out resumes, but also cover letters, thank-you and follow-up letters, and even offer editing services on existent resumes.
These services come in packages or individually, according to the choice of the customer. Interestingly, the packages are much more affordable than ordering a couple of individual products from the company, which makes it obvious why customers prefer to purchase a package over a single resume product.
Prices, discounts and special features
Individual resume writing comes at a fee of $129, while resume editing costs $99. As for CVs, the writing service costs $159 and the editing costs $119. Cover letters come at the lowest fee available, which is only $55.
In addition to the packages that combine these services and the individual services offered, you’ll find an option to ask the company to send out your application to employment agencies, which costs extra $59. The three packages available include LinkedIn profile help, which is not a service you can order separately.
The first package combines a resume, LinkedIn profile and a cover letter and costs $209 with an added discount. The second package has unlimited revisions in addition to these services and costs $155, but it does not include the LinkedIn profile service. Finally, the third package combines resume, cover letter, unlimited revisions, thank-you letter, follow-up letter, and of course, direct contact with the writer. This package comes at a cost of $195.
These three packages are the most popular ones, but they aren’t the only ones. You can find a variety of different combinations of the same services, all at a great price compared to buying them individually or ordering from a different service.
As for special features, the most popular features are the unlimited revisions and the option to talk to the writer while waiting for the order. This is something you can rarely find in resume companies, which is why we were pleasantly surprised to learn about it.
Writers certification and guarantees
Writers are highly qualified to do their work and, even though there aren’t certifications or profiles of writers listed on the site, the reputation speaks of this fact. The direct contact with the writer is a guarantee that you will get assistance throughout the entire process, and getting the unlimited revisions options ensures quality according to your standards and expectations.
Quality of an ordered product
Now, to check all of this and confirm or reject what we’ve learned by looking at Careersbooster’s reputation, we placed an order for a package. At our surprise, we got an extra discount of 15% as we were first-time customers, so the prices we found to be cheap in the first place turned out to be even cheaper.
The quality was as the reputation says. Careersbooster proved to us that their writers are qualified and can handle the tasks given to them, especially since we sent limited information about the candidate with basic background and little work experience. We were surprised to see that both the cover letter and the resume were tailored specifically for the job description we sent, and after they sent out the resume to agencies, we got a couple of emails and calls in the following two weeks.
The prices we mentioned apply to 5 days, while you can ask to get your order within the shortest timeframe of 24 hours. This is one of the very few resume companies who offer such a short deadline and, while the rate for such deadlines is much steeper, it is still more affordable than the cheapest rates in other popular companies.
Since we spoke to the writer while waiting for the order, we didn’t get much chances to talk to the customer support. We only discussed order details before we placed the order and during that time, the live chat agent was extremely professional and helpful. He literally filled up our order details and guided us through the entire process, only to turn us over to the writer for professional assistance once everything was cleared up.
Overall, careersbooster.com is a popular service, and for more than one reason. They are cheap, reliable, and most importantly – quality is truly guaranteed.
