Christiane Léa July 21, 2021 Resume Ideas
Your new ASCII resume will be universally readable, no matter what computer system the recipient uses. It will also be easy to manipulate for entry into applicant tracking databases, eliminating the inherent difficulties of scanning and converting your paper resume with OCR systems.
Many resume scams will hook you with a low or reasonable price, then upsell you on other features or services and/or tell you your resume will be longer and make you pay for a '2 or 3 page' resume. I can't STAND this practice! I charge a flat rate because (mainly) it's easier for me! Sure, I may lose money on the occasional resume that takes longer or is more difficult than I estimated, and yes, some are easier and take less time. It all balances out. I believe in keeping my pricing fair - for my clients and myself. And the last thing I want to do is spend my time trying to talk you into buying something you don't want. I can't stand pushy salespeople! And if I wanted to be in sales- I would be! There's a reason I'm not!To the best of my knowledge, there is no such (legitimate) site! In most cases, these sites are owned (directly or indirectly) by these resume service sites themselves! They give 'reviews' with 5 star ratings to their companies, or to companies which have paid (usually several hundred dollars per month!) to be included on this list!
Just because it is an investment does not mean that it will cost you $1,000. However, It also does not mean that a resume writer selling 'professionally written resumes' for $25 will do a good job. Your job as a job seeker is to hire the best you can afford. A strong, well written resume for a mid level career should not be more than $150 TOPS. A high-end executive, however, should expect to pay more. The majority of resumes that I write are for those mid level job seekers. I am not afraid, or ashamed, to admit that I do NOT feel comfortable working with a high-end - big whig- CEO of a multinational conglomeration! I know my limitations. Which leads us to my next point...
If a resume writer guarantees that their resume will get you a job within a particular period of time, FIND ANOTHER WRITER! I am a resume WRITER, not a HIRING MANAGER (been there, done that!). I cannot guarantee you get a job any more than you can guarantee me work for the next 6 months. Your interviewing skills, personality, networking skills, career background and sometimes - sheer luck- are what will GET you a job. MY JOB is to create and write a resume that markets your skills and accomplishments and makes you more attractive and valuable to companies!
Text resumes (also referred to as ASCII resumes) are just what the name implies, an ASCII-formatted version of either your traditional or scannable resume. Text resumes are universally readable on all computer systems and platforms and are the preferred format when you are emailing your resume. An ASCII resume received in email can be entered directly into an applicant tracking system without the added step of needing to scan it. Entry into the system is fast, easy, and accurate and so many employers and recruiters prefer this format.
At the most, I only write 1-2 resumes per day. It takes several hours for each resume. A good resume takes hours to write and the best resume writers produce only 1-2 resumes per day. Be wary of resume writers that will not provide at least a few different samples of resumes they have created. Any resume writer promising 24-48 hour turnaround and charging $99 or less, generally produces 6-8 resumes a day. They all look the same. The information is put into a template and they shoot it off to you. Generally speaking, my turnaround time is a week to 10 days. Sometimes more. I am always honest about how long it will take me to send your resume. I do offer same day and next day service, but on a very limited availability and it comes with a price. Your time is valuable and so is mine. If I am doing a rush order for you, it means I am taking time away from my family and personal life. This is true of any competent resume writer!
