1. Find My Profession
Find My Profession is not just a top-notch resume service available in Fort Worth. We are a global company headquartered in the US on a mission to master effective resumes that convert.
No matter where you are in your career, we are here to help. We have some of the best resume writers available in For Worth 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 Government/Federal and IT Professionals in the Greater DFW Area.
With a 60-Day Interview Guarantee that speaks for itself, 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 Fort Worth 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 48 hours.
Phone: (831) 888-0967
2. DFW Resume
DFW Resume owner Sara Timms has more than two decades of experience as a professional resume writer. Every job seeker who chooses DFW will work directly with Sara, who prides herself on exceptional, individualized client care.
Pros: You can book a discovery session with Sara online, which is a nice touch. Her resumes are 100% satisfaction guaranteed. She also has reasonable pricing for occasional updates for ongoing clients.
Cons: Her free consultation is only 10 minutes long. For a longer consultation, you will have to pay extra fees.
Turnaround: 5–10 days.
Cost: $300 and up.
Phone: (972) 876-2031
3. StandOut Resumes
StandOut Resumes is based nearby in Dallas and has more than 1,000 satisfied clients. This top resume service received an award from Yelp in 2018. Their process begins with a no-cost discovery call from a resume coach, chosen from their team of high-quality writers who specialize in a variety of industries. They offer both student and military discounts.
Pros: Their website is easy to navigate and the resume writing process is made crystal clear. Their resumes are keyword optimized using ATS simulation technology and there are some very handsome samples in their gallery.
Cons: There are just two packages to choose from, and although there is a beautiful simplicity to that in one sense, it might bother you if you want more of an à-la-carte menu to choose from.
Turnaround: 5–7 days.
Phone: (877) 660-1008
4. Bob Janitz Resume Writer
Bob Janitz is a highly qualified entry-level to executive resume writer. He is a past president of the National Resume Writers’ Association and is based right in Fort Worth. He has been writing resumes for 25 years and also offers LinkedIn profiles that you can bundle into your package.
Pros: He has some very nice samples, including networking resumes with a clean graphic presentation. He provides all his resumes in Word, PDF, and ASCII forms.
Cons: There are few cons we could spot about using Bob Janitz, but we did think his 48-hour rush service was a bit steep at an additional $200.
Turnaround: Not stated.
Phone: (817) 253-6533
5. Perfect Resume
Perfect Resume will give you a free resume critique and also offer personal marketing services and interview training. Using this larger Dallas-based company and their industry-specific team of writers, you can revamp an old resume or have a new one written from scratch.
Pros: There are a wide variety of options to choose from with this company so you are sure to get exactly what you need. It’s nice that there are two rush service options: a 48-hour option and a 72-hour option, each with their own pricing.
Cons: We wish we could see how long the expected turnaround would be for a resume. After all, that is a big consideration when you are using a professional resume service. However, the fact that 72 hours is considered a rush service gives us a ballpark idea.
Turnaround: Not stated.
Cost: $199–575 (lowest price is for revamp of existing resume only).
Phone: (214) 431-5296
6. Career Wizards Inc.
Career Wizards, based in Mansfield, has many satisfied customers. The company has been in business for 20 years and also offers job placement services, working with companies like Dow, AT&T, JP Morgan Chase, and HP. Also, they offer resume writing coaching services should you wish to learn how to take the reins yourself.
Pros: If you are also looking for resume distribution, you can try their ResumeSpider service, which is 100% guaranteed for its accuracy in targeting the right companies for you.
Cons: You won’t get precise information about pricing or what their packages include from their website.
Turnaround: Not stated.
Cost: Send a quote request using their quiz forms.
Phone: (817) 466-0015
7. Resume Goat
Resume Goat is the first of two fauna-inspired company names on this list. One of the things that we found intriguing about this resume writing service is that they offer special payment options for people in need, including battered women, ex-convicts, and the homeless. Kudos to this Texas-based company for being mindful of the needs of these underserved communities.
Resume Goat is flexible in their approach. You can start from scratch, or give them an example of something you like and they will build a similar resume for you. They specialize in resumes for people in highly technical professions but serve many other industries.
Pros: You can get 10% off just by joining their mailing list. Just follow the link at the bottom of their home page.
Cons: This appears to be all online service, without telephone consultations. Many job seekers would understandably feel more comfortable having some one-on-one conversation involved in this process.
Turnaround: 5–10 business days.
Phone: Contact through the website.
8. Resume Butterfly
Resume Butterfly is the second animal-inspired resume service we promised. Jessica Smith is a solo resume writer for people from all professions and offers special packages for stay-at-home moms transitioning back into the workforce. She has a blog with many helpful articles for job seekers, including advice on what to wear to your interview.
Pros: This service is very affordable and she has lots of samples on her website in a helpful before-and-after format. You can download a free job search advice e-booklet from her website.
Cons: As of this writing, there is a limit on new clients. You have to contact her to see if you are accepted as a client.
Turnaround: Not stated.
Phone: Contact through the website.
9. Up-To-Date Resumes
Up-To-Date Resumes writer Jane Smith is focused on getting to know the needs and challenges of each client. She provides a personal, thoughtful touch. She is located nearby in Keller, TX. Her website is a little outdated, but her reviews attest to the quality of her work.
Pros: Jane will give you a free resume evaluation and will include a version of your resume in ASCII format in case you need it (and you will).
Cons: She doesn’t do LinkedIn profiles, which is an add-on many job seekers are looking for these days. That makes it less of a one-stop-shop for some.
Turnaround: 4–5 days.
Phone: (817) 337-5485
10. Resumes That Sell You
Resumes That Sell You have offices all over Texas, including one nearby in Dallas. They offer free resume evaluations and coaching services. One of their specialties is the oil and gas industry, but they serve others as well.
Pros: You can bundle interview practice sessions and other coaching options with this service.
Cons: It is more expensive for two-page resumes than one-page resumes with this service. Depending on your philosophy about resumes, that might not exactly be a good value. Even some high-level executive resume writing services believe that being succinct can often be very effective. More doesn’t always mean better.
Turnaround: Not stated, although reviewers mention a fast turnaround.
Phone: (713) 860-4062
