Question: What do you charge for doing a resume and cover letter?
A one page resume will cost you $150.00. Each additional page costs $50.00. The first cover letter, costs $45.00. Additional targeted cover letters cost $25.00 each. If you also need assistance with filling in a job application, there will be an additional charge. Learn more about how my resume services work.
Question: When do I pay for your resume writing services?
Because too many of my clients arrange for me to write their resume or cover letter, then change their minds, I require a minimum retainer fee equal to a single page resume, before I begin work. I do my best to give you an honest assessment as to whether you will need a single or two page resume. In some cases, it is apparent that you need a three-page resume. Payment in full is expected before I deliver the final resume with the continuing pages on it.
Question: How do I pay for your resume writing services?
Many of my clients opt to pay me via the PayPal shopping cart on my website. I do not withdraw the funds from PayPal until I have completed the job, so if you are unhappy with my work, I am always able to return your deposit. You may also pay by check or cash. After trying to cash one check for four months before my former client closed out his account, I now wait until your check clears before I begin work or release your final copy.
Question: How long do you take?
I complete most resumes in 5 – 7 days from payment clearing. Rush orders cost an extra $60 (if I am able to do it). If you fail to respond with the necessary information, I don’t refund the rush fee. If I am at fault for not meeting the deadline, I will refund the rush fee.
Honestly, I’ve rarely seen a rush order that works out well. It takes time to craft a resume that gets results. Unless you are available to answer questions and gather information, don’t waste your money on rush service.
Question: Can we meet? I’m not good at writing.
If you live in the Portland Metro/Vancouver area, I would be happy to set up a meeting with you to discuss your resume. Otherwise, we may need to work using phone interviews.
