    Jessica and Megan were awesome they worked with me through the whole process. It was simple, fast, easy, and I am having GREAT feedback from my new resume already!

  2. T.A.

    I had been unemployed for 5 months, and was getting so desperate. I didn’t know what to do. So I called and they worked with me one-on-one to create a resume that ultimately got me three job offers! For months I had no interviews, and then all the sudden I had 5 interviews within 2 weeks. I am just so grateful, and I want to tell everyone.

    Jessica is a detail oriented professional who has a great depth of knowledge regarding resume creation and career management guidance. As an 18-year industry professional I had not updated my resume for some time. When I needed to get back into the workforce I found my resume was not working for me…I had initially turned to much higher-priced services -but still found significant barriers. Jessica was able to suggest a fresh approach that not only emphasized my strong selling points, but provided a feature-laden resume that was formatted to work effectively with latest HR selection criteria. Jessica was patient, supportive and an awesome resource….. and the services provided by her company are significantly better value than anything else that I have found. I would highly recommend Jessica\’s services to anyone in need of a resume overhaul or career management guidance.

    I wanted to thank you for helping me re-position myself through a new resume that I desperately needed. When we first spoke, I knew you sounded very knowledgeable and confident that you could help me even though we only spent about an hour on the phone. I didn’t expect you to produce the best resume I have ever seen in 4 days. Sending me job descriptions of where you thought I would fit was brilliant, and I even applied to some of those jobs after I got my new resume. I have seen testimonials before but this is the truth. Within 3 weeks of sending out my new resume and cover letter, I had 4 phone interviews with serious company’s for consulting jobs, and I never did consulting before. You highlighted my transferable skills and the phone started ringing. I have now completed 3 of the 4 phone interviews and all 3 are moving forward. One of them is with a large, well known global business services company.

    I really have to give you credit. You were able to bring out my most valuable skills and make me shine. This is the first testimonial I have ever done but you were spot on and whatever happens with these jobs, I know more will be coming.

    Thank you very much for your hard work over the last week. The improvements to my resume are nothing short of amazing. I am very appreciative of the knowledge, skills, and sense of humor you brought to this task.

    I have already talked with several colleagues about my positive experience with Great Resumes Fast in general and you in particular and I will certainly continue to do speak well of you both.

    I wish you all the best and I thank you again for all of your efforts on this document that is so crucial to my professional life.

    Very disappointed w/ Great Resumes Fast; I keep telling the writer assign to me to add spice to the resume highlights and she keeps coming back without an update and I ended up doing the revisions myself including the fonts and layout. I submitted it to her for final review and she refuses to work w/ me saying all the work on her end was done and finalize and that it will require more money if she does more work. Its a total bogus false advertisement in their website of 100% satisfaction guarantee. I will NOT recommend them to my friends or colleagues.

    I ordered the Professional resume service and at first I must admit I was surprised by the look of my resume. However, you cannot go by looks, you can only go by call-backs, and with GreatResumesFast resume I was not getting any? Main problem? They set me up with a 2page resume. Again, it looked nice on paper, however, most HR people told me they dont bother looking at 2 pagers unless you have 20+ years experience or more!!!

    I went back to a Masters format and now I get call backs. Overall, not worth the money. Check out USC MBA guide (OR any business school mba guide) as they have the “standard” format that HR reps look at. Of course, if you can get past HR, hooray….but most will not.

    My background? > Banker w/ 8yrs experience, Masters in technology, and professional financial certs.

    Not worth the $$$$$$$$$$

  8. Kevin

    This is a terrible resume service. They state “satisfaction guaranteed”, but that is untrue and dishonest. These folks will hedge when you ask for your money back, change a couple of things in your resume and then claim they rewrote it. They “guarantee” interviews, but again, that is untrue. My suggestion is to hire any other resume writing service other than this company. It is a scam.
