No, not everyone needs professional help with their resume. That’s why our resume experts will review your resume; to determine whether it’s correctly formatted and successfully showcases your skills. If your resume is already in good shape, we will be sure to let you know!

We offer multiple resume-writing packages, so whether you’re an entry-level employee or a C-level executive looking to change careers, we have what you need.

If you’re wondering whether resume-writing services are tax-deductible, the answer is yes (in most cases). Speak to your accountant or our support team for further instructions regarding tax deductions. You can also visit the IRS website.

TopResume uses the expert knowledge of our resume writers, combined with feedback from resume-scanning software called applicant tracking systems (ATS). The ATS filters applicants based on keywords and formatting, and TopResume analyzes your resume using similar technology. Our expert writers break down this analysis to figure out how to make your resume more effective.

Your writer will collaborate with you to provide a first draft, which will be delivered to you in about a week. Then, you'll have another week to provide feedback to your writer, with up to two rounds of revisions. The process typically takes one to two weeks.

How it Works

About Our Writers

Does TopResume provide resume writing for specialized fields?

Yes, our expert writers are certified in over 65 industries, and are equipped to write specialized resumes for the military, federal, and academic sectors. They’re well-versed in current best practices and are able to translate experience from one industry to another.

We have a network of over 1,200 writers, including certified career coaches, former and current hiring managers, HR professionals, recruiters and professionals with specialized experience in over 65 industries. This ensures we can match each client with an expert who is a strong match for their needs. TopResume recruits and vets our writers based upon the value they can bring to our clients.

We’ve designed our introductory questionnaire to get a sense of your past experience and current goals while allowing you the opportunity to communicate what matters most to you. The questionnaire should only take a few minutes to complete; your answers will help inform the approach your writer takes in restructuring and rewriting your resume. While a previous resume is not required to kickstart the resume-writing process, it can save you and your writer time covering the basics.

Our resume-writing process is collaborative between the writer and the client. We use your old resume as a primary source of information. If you don’t have a resume, don’t worryyour writer will send you a brief questionnaire that will request all the information we need to get started. Once this has been provided, your new resume will be delivered to you in about a week. Then, you'll have another week to provide feedback to your writer, with up to two rounds of revisions. The process typically takes one to two weeks.
