Resume Writing Service and Professional Job Search Coaching

Professional Resume Writing Service

About Resume ReWrite™

Resume ReWrite™ is a professional resume writing service for anyone from recent college grad to executive. Tina and Carl Nielson combine their extensive professional writing and editing and corporate human resource management experience to create highly effective resumes.

The greatest quote we've read online:
"If you can read and write - you can put a resume together. Everyone knows that."
We felt sorry for the person who wrote that. They were unemployed.

When is it time to invest in professional resume writing services?

"When you realize that your personal stability and professional future are at stake and you’ve admitted to yourself that resume writing is not your strength." Martin Yate, author of Knock 'em Dead The Ultimate Job Search Guide.
Your resume is the critical marketing tool for any job search. It is the foundation from which to build your social media platform. It serves as your brand ambassador, makes you visible to talent acquisition professionals and recruiters, and opens doors. Your resume will dictate whether you get interviews or not. Without interviews there are no job offers. Quite simply, it’s the most financially important document you will ever own.

Writing a resume is serious business that requires an understanding of how recruitment and hiring strategies affect resumes and how a resume effects a recruiter's reaction to you. It demands the highest level of professional writing skills (equal to those of a technical writer) and the clarity of objective analysis to decide how best to package you as a commodity. It requires unique writing skills that most resume writers don't possess.
An excellent resume doesn't just happen. It takes time and thought to determine how best to package the professional "you", then more time to write, layout, edit, edit again with your input, and then polish the final document. Resume writing is a very labor-intensive process. It is mission-critical to your job search. Unfortunately, like most things in life, you usually get what you pay for.

Unfortunately too many of our clients had paid another resume service before they discovered us. We hate those stories. Each had a happy ending once we were able to work with them. Was that other service incompetent? Probaby not completely. Were they fraudelent? Probably not. Did they claim to have a resume writing certification? Probably yes. While the fee paid was basically wasted, the bigger loss has to do with the missed job opportunities and lost time in the job search.

There are many resume writers advertising their services. To know what you can expect from one vs another is almost impossible. However, the following is what we offer. We encourage you to ask for the credentials of others and compare for yourself. We are a team of two that provide you with personalized attention. Here is what we offer:
  • Over 20 years in human resource management, including recruiting, hiring, high-potential employee development, executive development coaching and career and job search coaching
  • Over 20 years of professional technical, marketing and resume writing experience and honors graduate in English from a major university
The result is a resume that actually opens the door to more and better job opportunities - in less time - and with potentially higher earnings - assuming you have good professional skills to begin with and that you learn how to leverage the resume effectively in your job search.

What we've found - a small study in human psychology

When you have a powerful resume that creates a sense of self pride, you feel more confident, think more clearly and perform better under the pressure typically experienced in an interview setting. As one client described, "you are more authentic".

Another outcome of the process is increased self-awareness. With greater self-awareness, you'll have a much easier way of articulating your personal brand. You'll also find you have better insight into career management issues that you can leverage for many years.
What do professionally prepared resumes typically cost?
We know there are many resume writers offering resume writing for $200 - $300. If price is all that matters to you, you'll have plenty of choices. Prices can vary greatly, but the following is the competitive mid-point according to Martin Yate, author of the Knock 'Em Dead series of books, including Secrets & Strategies for First-Time Job Seekers:
  • Entry Level Resume $400
  • Professional Level Resume $550
  • Mid-Career Level Resume $650
  • Technical/Scientific/Engineering Resume $750+
  • Management Level Resume $850+
  • Executive Level Resume $1100+
If money is tight you certainly have to spend it wisely, but a professionally written resume shouldn’t be seen as a “cost”. It is a marketing investment that can earn you money with every day it saves you in landing your next position. For most people the cost is the equivalent of two or three days pay.

"I thought I had a pretty good resume already. Wow! How wrong I was. It makes me wish I could take back all the resumes I already sent out - and received no response. Now I think I know why."

"I wanted to let you know I submitted my new resume, that you created for me, to a company I had submitted my old resume to four months ago. No response last time. This time, I received a phone call the next morning. Coincidence? I'm thinking not!"

We've Got Your Back with the Resume ReWrite Guarantee

Success Discoveries Resume ReWrite is likely the best value you'll find. Here is why:
  • We place quality above profit
  • We place your satisfaction above our time
  • We place your success above our success
What does that mean for you?
An outstanding service for a reasonable price.

How can we prove it?

Our Guarantee

We promise to work with you non-stop until you are fully satisfied with your resume. If at any time you feel the work we provided wasn't worth it, you simply request a refund and we'll quickly refund your fee minus the initial 10% credit card processing cost. And so far, we haven't received a single request for a refund. In fact, the feedback we get has been 100% positive - many of our clients call to report their exciting news that they got the job of their dreams or a new job with significant increase in pay or simply that they are consistently getting interviews now - and referral is our #1 source of new clients.

Our Service - Steps to Take

  • Step One - You complete the Fast Start survey upon purchasing a Resume Rewrite package and submit your current resume or summary of work history, regardless of its condition, and any other content you have.

  • Step Two - Schedule a convenient time to talk with Carl Nielson by phone so he can get to know you, your background, ask questions needed to get started on your resume and answer any questions you have.

  • Step Three - Carl and his partner, Tina, will work to create a customized near perfect "first draft" resume.

  • Step Four - You and Carl will continue to meet by phone interactively to fill in and strengthen the resume. Between each interactive session, Tina will review and edit changes for correctness (quality control step).
We then polish and load the resume with key words. When completed, you'll receive a MS Word version of your resume and a PDF version with embedded key words (to help with search engine optimization and company job posting systems that scan for key words).


Schedule a call
Do you offer a complimentary phone session before I decide to buy?
Yes, to schedule an appointment with Carl Nielson simply tap on the phone graphic and pick a convenient time on his calendar. The appointment goes straight on his calendar and you'll receive a reminder as well. The appointment confirmation email will have the call-in instructions.

How many sessions or how much time does the fee include?
We don't count sessions or minutes. We keep working with you until you are satisfied.

Is there a duration limit?
We don't have a duration limit per se for the project. We keep working as long as you are responding and working with us. If we don't hear back from you for a while, we simply place your project on hold. We'll pick up where we leave off upon your response. Once you are satisfied with the resume, we still support any editing needs for the remainder of 12 months from our start date. Remember, we want you satisfied. We want you to refer people to us.

How many pages of tailored resume does the fee cover?
We don't count pages and we don't count words. If you want a "one-pager" or a 2- or 3-page resume then that is what we'll develop. Opinions still differ about resume length. We believe, based on your years of work experience, one, two or even three pages can be warranted. We'll advise you on this issue as we develop your resume. Some clients want the traditional resume which can be two or three pages and an additional one-pager. We'll explain the uses for the one-pager if that is something you feel you need. The additional resume is an add-on option with a nominal fee. Ask and we'll show you sample resume formats we use for the one-pager style.

Have you ever had someone ask for a refund?
No. We have not had a single dissatisfied customer. If we do, we'll be sure to change this answer. Like we said above, our #1 source of new clients is actually referrals.
