 Choosing a Resume Writing Service

Frequently Asked Questions About Working With Resume Pilots

What differentiates Resume Pilots from other resume writing services?

Everything we do at Resume Pilots aligns with our core values:

Writing excellence: All of our writers are Ivy League-educated experts who leverage their extensive skills and market knowledge to craft your perfect resume.

Superior service: Through our in-depth consultation process, we make an unusual effort to get to know you and to interpret your career aspirations. Our focus is always you.

Unflinching integrity: We will never compromise on matters of ethics or integrity.

We are also a member of the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches.

What kind of clients do you work with?

We work with clients who are serious about their careers, with experience levels ranging from C-suite executives to current students.

Have you written a resume for my industry?  

Probably!

We have worked with clients from most sectors spanning everything from finance to marketing to pharmaceuticals.

When choosing a resume writer, remember that the most important attributes to look for are not niche expertise but their:

1) Quality of writing

2) Ability to ask pertinent questions, leading to an impactful document that drives results

3) Tailored and bespoke service

Resume writing is also a collaborative process. During your consultation, we’ll clarify your goals and ensure that we have a strong understanding of your particular niche before we get to work.

Do you work with international or out-of-state clients?

Yes! We work with clients from all over the US and around the world including Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

We’ll conduct your initial consultation over the phone or via a Zoom conference call, so we can help no matter where you are based.

We also tailor your resume’s content and formatting based on where you intend to apply for jobs.

What does your process look like?

Once you place your order, we will email you our questionnaire and details regarding next steps.

After we receive the information we need from you and review it, we will set up a phone call to discuss your experience and goals in more detail.

Then, we’ll get to work! Once your drafts are ready, you’ll have a chance to provide feedback so we can make any necessary tweaks if needed.

Why are you priced higher than other resume writing services?

Simply put, we put a significant amount of time into understanding your background and crafting your document.

The time devoted to each client includes:

  • reviewing your initial documents
  • a one-on-one phone consultation
  • outside research
  • writing
  • a follow-up call (if needed)
  • revisions

All of these components tend to be equivalent to at least a full working day.

We know for a fact that many larger resume writing companies offer a much more automated service and frequently outsource their writing internationally.

Our clients hire us because we promise - and deliver on - exceptional quality.

We pride ourselves on the strength of documents we produce and price our services accordingly.

Will I get to provide input during the writing process?

Of course!

However, we may push back and challenge your recommendations if they do not conform to industry best practices or would not be in your best interests.

That said, we will work with you and make requested changes to ensure you are satisfied with your final document.

Do professional resume writers work? Is the investment actually worth it?

We’ll let our reviews speak for themselves!

But to put it into perspective, your investment is likely to be less than 1% of your annual salary - and can lead to the opportunity for further salary growth.

I’m not sure if I will benefit from your services or if my resume is already in good shape. Can you look at it before we get started?

Sure! Please upload your resume here.

We only work with clients if we believe we will be able to add value.

We will get back to you with feedback on how we can improve your document if needed.

Do you guarantee results?

No trustworthy resume writer should guarantee interviews or job placement, but we can assure you that we will provide you with well-written documents that adhere to industry standards.

There are too many factors outside of our control (such as your experience level, quality of other applicants, and your interview performance) that prevent us from guaranteeing results.

However, based on the feedback we receive, our clients do tend to be successful in their subsequent job searches.

Can you update my resume with my new role?

Yes! If you have already worked with us and need an update to your document, please email us for a custom quote. You do not need to purchase a new package.

Where are you based?

We have writers based in Chicago and London.

While most of our clients work for US and Canada-based companies, many of them are based internationally.

As such, we work with all clients remotely via phone and email.

Where can I learn more?

We look forward to hearing from you!
