Great Resumes Fast Review...
Initial Thoughts, Pros & Cons, Recommendation
Pricing Points, Fast Facts, BBB, Complaints

A relative newcomer to the resume scene, has quickly evolved to become a major challenger to the "big boys," and for a good reason: they craft some of the best-written resumes on the Web.

How do they do it? They start with a close-knit team of talented writers (see the first checkmark below), followed by genuine, one-on-one consultation with the client (see the third checkmark).

What I Liked (the Pros)

Writers are not only talented at the craft of writing, but they're former HR Executives, Hiring Managers, Recruiters, and professional Editors. And you don't have to take the company's word for it. In a rare display of transparency, the writers are each given a bio on the company's website.
The company's President and CEO, Jessica Holbrook. A former Recruiter and HR Manager, Holbrook is a career and personal branding strategist, author and presenter. And she expertly writes resumes right along with her staff.

Personalized service. Forget the lengthy online worksheets and questionnaires that are commonplace on other sites. Place your order, upload your most recent resume, and your assigned writer will conduct an hour-long telephone interview to gather and discuss your career history and job search goals. Bias Alert: This is a business model that warms my heart (it's how I use to conduct my resume business).

Resume samples show skilled writers at work; writers with a thorough grasp of contemporary resume design and layout.
Guarantee should give prospective clients confidence; If your new resume doesn’t get you an interview within 60 days, call them and they'll rewrite it for you, free of charge.
24-hour rush service is available (for a price, of course).

What I Didn't Like (the Cons)

Nothing to report at this time.

Review Summary and Recommendation

Some of the best writing I've seen on the Web. Unparalleled one-on-one attention. Meet the company's writers (via their bios) before you put your money down. And finally, company confidence reflected in a 60-day interview guarantee. I have no trouble recommending...

Best of luck,
David Alan Carter

Link to the company's BBB Business Review.

Two complaints closed with the BBB in the past 3 years. Given the length of time the company has been operating (9 years), that represents a relatively low number and contributes to the high BBB rating.
Zero complaints posted on Internet forums. That seemed unusual, so we conducted a "company name" search at two of the more prominent consumer complaint sites... and Nothing came back.
