...except when it isn't.
Most job seekers learn about their résumé mistakes and shortcomings in the worst way - multiple rejections from hiring companies.
Résumé Raiders offers a mix of résumé review, revision, and full writing service offerings to accommodate job seekers with varying needs. These services are provided by a hiring and recruiting industry veteran with nearly twenty years of experience.
Our résumé review service is an inexpensive solution for anyone who would like actionable expert advice before applying for jobs (or after unsuccessful applications). For those needing a bit more, we offer review + revision and full résumé writing as well as LinkedIn Profile Reviews and cover letters. If you need live advice on your job search or any other career topic, we offer Career Coaching and Consulting services by the hour with our founder. And if you need it all, The Works package provides a volume discount for four combined services.
Who benefits most from our services?
- Job seekers who feel they have a strong résumé but are not getting adequate results
- Highly-experienced professionals with long résumés that need to be whittled down to a digestible size
- Accomplished individuals who need help prioritizing their work history
- Anyone not up on current employer expectations or trends (entry-level, new grads, those re-entering the workforce)
- International job seekers from cultures where accepted résumé formats typically differ
- Candidates who are not confident with their written English
And anyone who wants the confidence and peace of mind that their résumé is the best it can be
What makes us different?
Many résumé writers are writers who realized that they could earn a living by writing résumés. Their résumés may be full of flowery language and impeccable sentence structure, but is that what employers and recruiters want to see?
We can tell you that they don't. How do we know? Because the principals of Résumé Raiders were the ones reading (and often rejecting) those résumés. Each of our founders has nearly 20 years of industry experience reviewing and evaluating résumés for potential hire.
Simply put, we know what works and what doesn't. We know what hiring managers and recruiters want to read, and we know which résumés get sent for interview and which get deleted.
Two heads are better than one
Most résumé services will assign you one writer or reviewer who may or may not have worked on the front lines of hiring. Résumé Raiders provides each client with the opinions of two highly-experienced industry professionals that have spent many years on opposite sides of the hiring process. The advice of a veteran agency headhunter will likely be different from that of an internal corporate recruiter. Our clients can get both.
Our feedback will be direct, actionable, and based on lessons learned from reviewing several thousand résumés.
