Resume writers that offer a money back guarantee typically make it so incredibly difficult to get it, that they RARELY give refunds. And, any resume writer can tell you how easy it is for clients to scam THEM. I have a friend who is a resume writer (I used to work for her, coincidentally) and she had several instances of clients simply saying they did not like it, in order to get a refund. The problem with this is that we live in a VERY small community. The client ALSO lived in the SAME community. She received a phone call one day from a local business who had just hired this client. The gentleman who hired him, recognized her style of writing and called with a 'hey- you'll never guess who I just hired' message. She never did recoup her money. She could have cost him the job. She chose NOT to tell her friend the scam his new employee had pulled on her. I'm just not sure I'd be able to keep my mouth shut. So no... unless there is some type of critical error or incomplete order, most resume writers will NOT offer refunds.
As I said, I do VERY FEW Senior executive resumes. I have done them, but that is on a case by case basis. I often turn down work because it is not in my realm of knowledge. No resume writer can know everything about every career! A resume scammer will tell you they DO. For the record, I also do not do resumes for attorneys, actors, federal resumes or resumes for physicians. You can be in sales, IT, construction, education, management, or any number of other fields and I am more than happy to assist you. I know my limitations. Every resume writer SHOULD.
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!
As previously noted, employers rarely request scannable resumes anymore. If they utilize an applicant tracking system, they will likely request that your resume be e-mailed, either as ASCII text or as an attachment. E-mail allows the recipient to enter your resume directly into the database, eliminating the extra steps of scanning and OCR.
Scannable resumes -- also a printed, hardcopy format -- are designed primarily for accurate scanning into a computer. Captured as an image, scannable resumes are fed through OCR (optical character recognition) software that reads and extracts the text. The extracted text is databased for storage and later recalled by keyword from an applicant tracking system. Scannable resumes are very rarely requested any more. If you are asked for a scannable resume, the most efficient option is to email the requestor your plain ASCII text resume (described next).
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...
