EXECUTIVE RESUME & LINKEDIN PROFILE WRITING SERVICE REFORMATION THAT GETS YOU NOTICED!
How does your process work? What is the next step?
1) Once you select a package and place an order, you will be asked to complete a Required Questionnaire. The questionnaire has been designed to give us the information needed to create a quality resume. Within the questionnaire, we will also ask for a few ‘positions of interest’ links that is fitting to a new position you are seeking. We meticulously review the responsibilities within the links to match to your resume or LinkedIn profile – paying specific attention to keywords.
2) Once we receive your completed questionnaire we then start working on your assignment and e-mail you the first draft. You will have the opportunity to request changes, ask questions, and suggest corrections. We incorporate this feedback and send you a revised document.
Who are our clients?
We provide services to everyone from newly-qualified individuals looking to start promising careers to those wanting a change of career, and individuals taking a step up in their careers and to those who realize it takes time to brand themselves online. A blank online page of you isn’t the best professional you.
Because it’s crucial to get the balance right on LinkedIn we specialize in using the right keywords while maintaining a professional presence.
Just one of the advantages of using our writing service is that we know exactly what to include, what not to include and what angle to use in your LinkedIn profile and resume to ensure you’ll get found ahead of your competition.
How much do you charge?
We do not charge on a per page basis nor do we charge by the hour. We offer fixed prices that can be viewed Here
I have seen resume writing services charging in the $75-$100 range. Do you have something like that?
We have a getting started process (the questionnaire), a review and editing process and spend an average of fifteen to seventeen hours on every project. Unlike some of our competitors, we do not use templates and never ship your work to overseas writers. Allow me to explain the downfalls of using a resume mill. a) You are contacted by a resume analyst (salesperson) not a resume writer. b) Resume mill’s overhead includes Job Boards, Salesman/woman, Project Manager, Editor and then the Resume Writer. c) The resume writer who holds a key part in your job search gets paid along with all of the others within the mill business. What quality can you expect when the actual resume writer’s piece of the pie is so small? Hmm…something to think about.
How long does it take?
UPDATE (5/13/2019) Due to the high demand for our services our turnaround time has changed for the time being. This is post return of our required questionnaire from clients.
An average estimate would be f̶i̶v̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶e̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶b̶u̶s̶i̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶d̶a̶y̶s̶ 10 – 15 business days. Some projects are finished sooner while others may take extra days. Many times we are sent 3, 4, 5 versions of resumes from clients. We review each of these versions line by line in order to determine the variances (aka. what is included on one opposed to the other) – this takes time and helps us build your foundation resume according to the goal(s) identified from our phone call, email messages and the returned questionnaire. Often times, we are also requested to do extra research to understand specific positions or clarity to the clients’ current role. We truly are thorough and want to produce a winning document for you.
Note: Our owner and sole writer will be away for a scheduled vacation between 7/6 – 7/16/2019. We are accepting new projects during that time and will be in contact upon return. We look forward to creating winning professional branding materials for you! Thank you!
I need a resume in the next couple of days. Can you help?
We do offer rush services for an extra fee. If you require a rush order please reach out before making a purchase to info@LinkedInPro.CO
Why email only communication?
We typically respond, via email, to revision requests (unless you have purchased our phone consult service) for the following reasons:
1) It is significantly easier for the client and the writer to exchange edits and ideas in a concise format where information can be read and then your documents adjusted.
2) Verbal communication often results in 30 minutes of discussion that can be transmitted by email in 4-5 minutes.
3) All the major resume / CV writing agencies use an “email only” communication approach.
4) Scheduling phone calls can end up in a back and forth over several messages for both client and writer.
I already have an existing resume. Does that help? What if I have don’t have a resume at all?
We can work from scratch. If you have an existing resume, we would like to acquire it as it’s always a great resource as much information is already found there to supplement our questionnaire. When you are completing the questionnaire, you will have the opportunity to paste an existing resume area in the questionnaire. If you do not have an existing resume, we will work with you to gather details. 90% of our clients usually have a past resume tucked away somewhere.
I am an existing client (used your services in the past). Now I need an update. How do I proceed?
If you have used our services in the past and want to update your resume, we can certainly help with that area too. Just send us a message to info@LinkedInPro.CO with some detail as to what you are needing to be updated and we’ll let you know the rate to match your current needs for updating your resume.
Why do I need to complete a questionnaire?
The questionnaire provides you with the opportunity to reflect on your career and provide us with unique information. Your initial responses to our questionnaire will help us prepare and maintain the focus while we prepare your professional branding materials.
Should I stick to a one-page resume?
The length of the resume is determined by the relevance of the content. We use almost a third of the first page in showcasing the most prominent aspects of your career. We have written thousands of two and three-page resumes with great success. As long as the content is relevant and not redundant, going beyond one-page is fine.
What kind of resumes do you write?
We work with professionals in all industries and at all levels.
Do you have samples I can view before I place the order?
Yes. You can view some of our examples at https://linkedinpro.co/linkedin-profile-writing-service-washington-dc-executive-resumes_carla_deter/
What other services do you provide?
We provide resume writing, LinkedIn profile optimization/writing, LinkedIn Profile Audit Review (Make Changes Yourself Option), LinkedIn consultation, LinkedIn company page writing and installation and cover letter, thank you letter services.
I want to purchase a resume as a gift for someone else. How does that work? Go ahead and make the purchase from our website and then contact us at info@LinkedInPro.CO to follow-up with the name and contact information of the person you have purchased the service for and we will get in touch with the recipient and start the process.
I cannot complete your questionnaire in one attempt. Can I save my work and come back to it later? Post-payment you will receive the questionnaire. You will see in the description the Word format of the questionnaire. We do use WuFoo forms for completion of the questionnaire and we suggest working on the questionnaire from the Word document first and once you have all your answers together you can then transfer the content over to the Wufoo form. Once you start the Wufoo form submission of the questionnaire – you cannot start and save for later. If this is an issue just contact us at info@LinkedInPro.Co and we can e-mail you the questionnaire in Word format. This will allow you to save your work and complete it at your convenience.
What is a keyword scannable document? The keyword scannable resume and cover letter are to be used for those companies that utilize electronic systems (Applicant Tracking Systems or ATS) to scan and store resumes.
What do past clients have to say about your services? To view a few of our client testimonials, please visit: https://linkedinpro.co/contact-us-today-2/recommendations/
We are in the process of updating all of the client testimonials that we have in archive and hope for this completion soon.
Do I need a cover letter? Some employers require one, others don’t. A cover letter could serve as a great introduction to your resume. We have a bundled package that would allow you to order a resume reformation, LinkedIn profile optimization and a cover letter for a combined price.
I am changing careers; can you help? We have worked with many individuals in similar situations. We will tailor your resume to meet these goals. Our questionnaire will give you an opportunity to further define your new goal and give us clarity as to how your background and experience converts to changing careers.
Can I get multiple resumes? The purchase of one resume package entitles you to a resume focused on only one “target”. If you wish to order multiple resumes you can certainly request additional resumes. Contact us at info@LinkeInPro.CO with details of your needs and we can create a specially-discounted package to best serve your needs.
What if I am not happy? We will be more than happy to address your concerns. Once you receive the first draft you will have the opportunity to identify sections of the resume you are not happy with. We will incorporate your suggestions and concerns and e-mail you a revised resume.
What is the difference between a revision and an update? We define a revision as any change suggested within the first thirty days from the date of purchase (as long as the job target is the same). Any changes after this timeframe would be considered an update and would be subject to a fee.
Do you guarantee job offers? We are not a recruiting or employment firm and make no representation or guarantees of meeting your employment or business objectives or being hired. We are not responsible for employment decisions made by an employer.
Have additional questions that we have not answered here? Just shoot us an email to info@LinkedInPro.CO. We try to get back to you within 48 hours (sometimes less). We look forward to hearing from you and assisting you toward the creation of a winning resume or LinkedIn profile.
“Carla is great to work with and an expert in resume writing and LinkedIn Profiles. When you’re like me and have 25+ years of experience to condense into as few pages as possible — the challenge can seem impossible. Carla to the rescue! Carla made the process easy. The great thing is that Carla takes a very personal and customized approach to your challenge. I answered a number of questions based on my original resume and LinkedIn profile and then spent quality time with Carla on the phone talking specifically about what I was looking for in terms of that next career step and how my experience fit those categories I was exploring. The editing process was super easy and efficient and Carla was very responsive to any questions or feedback I had. The end product was a great resume and LinkedIn profile and the results have been fantastic — multiple interviews with companies and jobs I am interested in and hopefully I will “seal the deal” here shortly. Thanks Carla!”
