1. Find My Profession
Find My Profession is not just a top-notch executive resume service available in Dallas. We are a global company headquartered in the US on a mission to master executive resumes that convert into offers.
No matter your profession be it Finance, Sales, Operations, Engineering, we are here to help. We have some of the best resume writers available in Dallas with expertise spanning 75+ industries.
A major perk of Find My Profession is that we pair you up with a writer who has experience in your industry. You don’t have to worry about having a resume writer who is unaware of the role that you are applying for.
While the majority of our clients are Executive and C-Suite, we also work with the Military Transition and IT Professionals in the Greater Dallas Area.
With over 150 5-star reviews that speak for themselves, you can sleep easy knowing that your satisfaction is our #1 priority.
Pros: Find My Profession is reliable and affordable compared to other high-quality professional resume writers. Our applicants receive direct contact with their personally assigned writer who has experience in their line of work.
Cons: Find My Profession is not physically located in Dallas and therefore you could not meet us in person. With a focus on more senior positions, our entry-level resume service may be a bit pricey for recent graduates.
Turnaround: 3-5 business days. Can expedite to 2 business days.
Phone: (831) 888-0967
Reviews: 5/5 stars on Google. 4.7/5 on Sitejabber. 9.6/10 on Trustpilot. 5/5 on Facebook. 5/5 on Glassdoor.
2. Mary Elizabeth Bradford
Mary Elizabeth Bradford is a Texas local who has been writing resumes for over 10 years. In 2008, Mary was voted a Forbes top 100 career website and Mary has received multiple awards and recognition for her resume writing services. Mary focuses exclusively on executive level professionals such as Directors, VPs, and C-Level executives.
Pros: Mary holds a handful of certifications in the resume writing community. Based on the high pricing, we believe that Mary will be writing your resume personally, which you can rest assured will be of great quality.
Cons: Besides the website being a bit outdated and boasting achievements from 2008, the cost could be considered a con to many. This is in the upper 1% of the most expensive services we have seen. But then again, Mary is definitely in the top % of the most awarded resume writers.
Turnaround: This was not transparently disclosed on the website. However, we believe the average turnaround is about 15 business days.
Phone: (830) 331-9398
Reviews: There were no transparent reviews listed on third party websites. Only reviews on her own website.

If you're a business owner looking to present yourself professionally in the best way possible, Career Trend is a great resume writing service.
Pros: Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter is one of 50 Master Resume Writers in the United States. Additionally, as a former journalist, it is clear that Jacqui has legitimate writing chops.
Cons: For true resume writing –– not just the "micro resume" offered at the lowest price point of $599 –– you'll have to dish out $2,499, which is no small expense.
