1. Find My Profession
Find My Profession is not just a top-notch resume service available in Montreal. We are a global company headquartered in the US on a mission to master effective, ATS compatible resumes that convert into offers.
A major perk of Find My Profession is that we are not a one-person shop.
Collectively, our team of elite resume writers has experience in 85+ unique industries/professions. This allows us to assign you a professional writer (in the United States) based on your unique background and experience.
We are also not a resume factory. We will never use “ghostwriters”. You will have your resume writer’s name, email, and phone number for direct communication.
With 100+ 5-star reviews and 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 commits to working with each client until they are completely satisfied. Don’t worry about having a limited number of edits, or a set amount of time with your writer.
Cons: Find My Profession is a virtual/online company. While we provide services in your city, we don’t have a physical office. Also, with a focus on more senior positions, our entry-level resume service may be a bit pricey for recent graduates.
