We offer a full range of services to help you through every stage of your job search.
Resumes are broken down into four different categories and price points based on level of experience:
-up to 5 years of experience ($125)
-up to 10 years of experience ($175)
-up to 20 years of experience ($225)
-more than 20 years of experience ($275)
While every person's career path is unique and not necessarily a "ladder", the categorical distinction is an important one - employers expect a certain level of transferable capability and knowledge based on years of professional experience. Even if you're switching industries or only detailing your most recent positions, it's critical to represent the experience and background you have to offer.
All resumes are delivered to you via email in Microsoft Word (.doc) format. If you'd like to order printed copies, please add one of our Printing and Mailing Service options.
A cover letter is a valuable tool you can use to say the things that don't necessarily belong on your resume - this is the place to mention that you're planning on relocating or that you've previously worked with someone at the company. It's also the place to make your case for why you're the perfect fit for a given position or how your work ethic matches the company culture. Other things you might want to address in your cover letter include accomplishments relevant to the target position, community involvement and activities, or personal characteristics. Sending a cover letter along with your resume greatly increases your chances of getting an interview - not only does it give you a chance to communicate directly with the employer, it shows the employer you're truly interested in the position. ($40)
A thank you / follow-up letter is a terrific way to let the employer know that you thought the interview went really well! It shows strong follow-up skills and helps you stand out from the crowd. It's also a very polite way of reminding the employer that you're expecting a response. ($40)
Based on your request, your writer can create a customized letter to use for a specific job or can give you something more general that you'll be able to use for different positions as they come along. All letters are delivered via email in Microsoft Word (.doc) format.
Our writers work hard to get your completed order back to you as quickly as possible! The process normally takes 3-4 business days from the time all information is received, but if you order the rush service option ($50), we'll prioritize your order and get it back to you within 1-2 business days. You'll still get the same great quality product we always turn out, you'll just be bumped to the top of the queue.
PRINTING & MAILING SERVICE
Although the vast majority of resumes are submitted electronically, it's still important to have a supply of hard copies! You'll want to make sure to bring your resume with you on the interview - you might need a few copies to distribute to multiple interviewers. For the very active job-seeker, it's a good idea to always have a copy of your resume with you as you never know who you might meet! If you select this service, we'll print your approved resume on high-quality paper and send it directly to your home via USPS Priority Mail - you can choose to receive either 25 copies ($25) or 50 copies ($35).
PHONE-BASED CAREER COACHING / IN-DEPTH RESUME CONSULTATION
In addition to our resume and letter writing services, we offer one-on-one phone-based coaching services that include career counseling, interview preparation, job search strategy advice, resume building consultation, and more! This is a great option if you'd like to discuss how to best present yourself to prospective employers, how to answer difficult questions about your work history, or work on defining a career path. Each 45-minute session is $135 with available discounted rates for multi-session packages. Please contact us or visit PhillyCareerCoach.com to find out more and set up an appointment that fits into your schedule.
From time to time, we hear from clients who are looking for something beyond the usual - this may be a biography, a short-form essay, a revision of our previous work, or just an exceptionally lengthy submission. We're happy to provide quotes for non-traditional requests - just use the contact form to tell us about what you need and we'll let you know if we can help, how much it will cost, and how long it will take. (Please note that there is no discount for editing/revising existing resumes that we did not initially prepare.)
