6 most common questions potential clients ask

Will we meet face to face?

We’ve learned that trying to make time to meet our clients in person just slows down the resume writing process. Since our goal is to finish your resume package as quickly as possible and get you on the job market right away, we will conduct all discovery and correspondence by phone and email based on our tested and proven resume writing and revision process.

What do you need from me?

Once we’ve both decided we’re a good fit and we want to work together, we will ask you to provide us with your current resume. If your resume is out of date, not to worry; we can use other methods to capture missing details. In addition, we’ll ask you to send us some job ads that are examples of the type of job you’re looking for. We’ll use these ads to drive the direction of your new resume.

How long does it take?

We will deliver the first version of your new resume within five business days. You’ll have up to two weeks to review the resume, show it to trusted friends, and so forth. We’ll ensure that we’ve identified the right messaging, that we’re capturing all your relevant, transferable, and marketable skills, and that you like the overall design. Versions two and three typically go very quickly as we’ll really just be “fine tuning.”

How much does it cost?

Our rates vary based on your professional level and how many years of experience you have. Prices start at $350 and we are happy to provide a quote when you call or email us. Opting for a resume package is always a good deal, because you get a bundled price. And, don’t forget, your resume preparation fees may be tax deductible. Students: ask for a discount.

How and when do I pay?

When you’re ready to get started, we will ask for your full payment up front via PayPal. If you don’t have a PayPal account, it’s not a problem. Almost all credit and debit cards work with PayPal. Some people worry about sending money to someone they’ve never met, so if you’d like to book a call, Mir is certainly happy to talk by phone and answer any other questions you might have.

Will I be able to update it?

We will deliver your final resume in Microsoft Word, PDF, and ASCII text. The Word version is your go-to if and when you need to add new information to your resume. Also, as an added benefit to you, we keep all our clients’ resumes on file so if for any reason you ever lose your digital files, we can provide a back-up resume for you.

People sometimes ask if we work specifically with one group of job seeker or type of industry

We work with people at all stages, across diverse fields, and from all around the greater Orange County area. We tend to attract mid- to senior-level managers and directors who are looking for a high-touch, experienced job search coach, but we also write resumes for college graduates and entry-level professionals as well in all kinds of industries.

And then there are the outliers: the home health nurses, the veterinarians, the flight instructors, and the restaurateurs. All in a day’s work.
