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.

Resu-mazing understands that feeling comfortable with a resume writing service depends a lot on understanding how the process works. Resume writer Bill Florin makes the whole arc of your potential collaboration with him transparent right from your free evaluation until the delivery of your shiny new resume. He also offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee.
Pros: Yes, the executive and C-level packages are on the higher end cost wise. But if you read the detail he gives for those packages, you will instantly see that he understands what it takes to market job seekers at that level. So if you are an exec, you will be very well taken care of.
Cons: A face-to-face meeting would take place at Bill’s Monroe office, which might be a hike for you. But if you are out that way or prefer working virtually, no worries.
