good place to start in evaluating a service that specializes in resume writing is at the top. That would be Mr. Don Goodman, the Founder and Past President (2002 - 2016) of the company About Jobs, LLC which goes by the moniker

A graduate of the Wharton School of Business and Commerce as well as Stanford University’s Executive Program, Goodman served as Chief Marketing Officer for a variety of high-tech firms before becoming a strategic staffing consultant to Fortune 500 corporations and a sought-after keynote speaker. From InfoWorld to the New York Times to the venerable Wall Street Journal, national media sought out Goodman for his expert advice on issues relating to employment, with his quotes appearing in hundreds of articles from dozens of publications.

A Certified Career Management Coach and Expert Resume Writer, Don hand-selected the writing team at GotTheJob and led that team to consistently deliver a 95% client satisfaction rate.

That vigilance and focus on detail continues under the leadership of current President Maryann Riggs. An accomplished CPRW, Riggs brings to the position a senior-level background in IT recruiting and 12 years experience as a top partner and professional resume writer with About Jobs before taking over the role of President.

What I Liked (the Pros)

Writers are all CPRWs (Certified Profesional Resume Writers). And the company President reviews every resume before it goes out the door.
No templates. Every resume is written from scratch.
A personal consultation is standard. Fill out the optional online questionnaire, then an in-depth telephone interview is scheduled with each client prior to crafting the resume. As it should be. 
Samples posted on their site are quite well written. Differing layouts to reflect the individual candidate, well organized data, excellent use of bullets and white space.
Option to add a LinkedIn Profile, an increasingly valuable tool in today's job search environment.  
Rush service available (for an extra fee, of course).
An interview is guaranteed within 30 days, or they will rewrite your resume at no charge.
Call the phone number listed on their home page, and you can talk to an Owner or the company President. How's that for attentive customer service?

What I Didn't Like (the Cons)

Nothing to report at this time.

Review Summary and Recommendation

Beyond the expertise of both the company's Founder as well as the current President, About Jobs LLC ( offers very personalized service, competitive pricing points, and an interview guarantee. Perhaps most telling, after a decade of scrutiny by the Better Business Bureau, the company has maintained an A+ rating.

A resume writing service worth your consideration...
