Pricing Points, Fast Facts, BBB, Complaints

One of only a few professionals worldwide to achieve the coveted “Certified Master Resume Writer” distinction, Erin Kennedy is the founder and President of Professional Resume Services, Inc. Beyond multiple certifications, Kennedy is a nationally published author and key contributor to 16 best-selling career books.

Kennedy has assembled a team of expert writers who seem intent on overtaking her in industry recognition. Last year alone, 7 members of Kennedy's writing team were nominated for the prestigious TORI Award (see sidebar, right), the first company ever to have this many writers nominated for such an award.

BTW, 3 writers received the award, the other 4 were runners up.

What I Liked (the Pros)

The specialty here is executive branding. What you'll walk away with is not so much a resume as a cutting-edge, value-branded marketing tool.
Writing team is truly cream of the crop, collectively holding numerous awards, contributing to various career publications and resume-writing books, and serving as recognized industry experts.
Samples speak volumes. The samples of executive resumes, available on the website, showcase talents far above those found with more typical writing services.
Social Networking Profile Development experts help craft client's online presence.
Proofing Department combs through resume drafts and removes errors.

What I Didn't Like (the Cons)

Don't expect a rush service here. A first draft will generally be ready within 1 to 2 weeks of your telephone consultation with your writer.

Note: This is less a criticism of the company and more of a heads-up for prospective clients. If you need a resume yesterday, you'll need to look elsewhere.

Review Summary and Recommendation

It says something when a company president "owns" her profession to the extent of achieving international recognition. But it's even more important--at least for her clients--that she assumes such an active role in the company (e.g., your initial consultation is with Erin Kennedy herself). 

If all you need is a standard resume, leave it to somebody else. Kennedy promises more, and brings her considerable personal talents and all of her company's resources to bear in developing a cutting-edge, value-branded marketing campaign that delivers opportunities for executives and senior management.

I have no trouble recommending...
