want me to review your resume?

As I’ve mentioned before, I get a lot of requests to give people feedback on their resumes, but because it’s time-consuming to do it well, I usually turn them down unless they’re friends or family.

But for a short time, I’m re-opening the resume review offer that I ran earlier this year!  When I offered this in March, the response was so overwhelming that I had to close the offer after just a few days, so this is a second chance to get feedback on your resume if you missed it the first time around.

The cost: $75

What you’ll get: As you can probably tell by the price, I’m not going to entirely rewrite your resume for you. People who do that charge a lot more. What you’ll get for 75 bucks: I’ll read your resume, I’ll give you suggestions for improving it, I’ll tell you where I think it’s weak and where I think it’s strong. I’ll tell you if your design sucks. I’ll tell you if you’re coming across as generic and/or unimpressive and how to fix it if you are. I’ll tell you what you need to change to have a resume that will make a hiring manager excited to interview you.

(And because I obsessively edit things, I might not be able to stop myself from editing it too. Fair warning.)

To be clear, this isn’t multiple rounds of revisions, or a rewrite service, or anything like that. It’s really just a bunch of notes on what I’d like to see you doing differently — what a hiring manager might think when looking at your resume.

Limited time: I don’t want to be a full-time resume reviewer, so this is a short-term offer, not something I’ll be offering regularly. So if you want it, lock it in now.


(For those of you who’d rather not spend the cash, a lower-price alternative is to buy my ebook, How to Get a Job: Secrets of a Hiring Manager, where you’ll find lots of resume advice — just not customized to your particular resume.

      It IS! I love it. It was done on Friday and I haven’t posted a picture because I’m waiting for a new camera battery to arrive … but you should be getting a photo later today. I am totally and utterly in love with it.

    I was part of the last round of this, and it was very helpful!

    I’m thinking about doing it again to see what you think of the revisions I made based on your input.
