Should You Spend Money on Professional Resume Writing, and How Much?

Why Invest in a Professional Writing Service?

Your resume is the most financially important document you will ever own. It has the potential to score better job opportunities and secure your future. A professionally written resume will take a lot of time, thought, and creativity. Just as no two applicants are alike, no two resumes are alike. Your resume’s purpose is to showcase your personal brand and highlight your career-contributions, which requires keen marketing abilities.

Resume writing is a labor-intensive process. Therefore, professionals charge upwards of $1,000 for a single document. The logic is that job seekers are losing money every day of unemployment. If the job seeker was making $40,000 per year, they are losing over $700 per week without a job. Therefore, the investment beats continuing to lose out on a paycheck. My professional and personal priority is helping individuals succeed. I understand that many clients are without a job, and cannot afford inflated prices. Thus, my resume writing service is flexible, ranging from $100 to $350. I genuinely enjoy setting career seekers up for success and I am willing to work with each client's budget and needs.

Below is a chart outlining the average cost of a professionally written resume. When starting my business, I performed extensive research the pricing structure of small to large-sized companies. Below is a chart that highlights 10 popular writing services and their tiered pricing structure.
