The following information (shared by professional colleague Grant Cooper, CARW, New Orleans, LA) may shed some light on the value of working with a credentialed career professional:

  • If you are trying to determine price vs. value in selecting a resume writer, here are some excellent guidelines to keep in mind:
  • Is your service provider a typing service or secretarial type of operation that formats your resume but offers no professional writing services? Expect to pay $29-$99 and up.
  • Is the writer an Internet-based “Resume Mill” cookie-cutter type of operation with minimal personal service and low level expertise? Expect to pay $49-$199 and up.
  • Is the writer uncertified, offering less than 3 years’ experience, an overseas writer with sketchy English, or lower skill level type of operator? Expect to pay $199-$299 and up.
  • Is the writer certified, offering 5+ years of experience, attending annual conferences, with a proven good reputation on LinkedIn and Google, and recent testimonials? Expect to pay $399-$599 and up.
  • Is the writer that develops your resume part of an upscale nationally acclaimed firm and published book author, or top-level service provider catering primarily to executives? Expect to pay $599-$999 and up.

Do your due diligence. Always verify a writer’s credentials and reputation through referrals and online reputation search. Ask to speak directly with the writer to ascertain whether or not he or she meets your needs and expectations.

Best wishes in finding the best possible value in a resume writer or other career professional . . . . This may be the most important decision you’ll make this year, and one of the very few purchases that can more than pay for itself in a few weeks on your new job!


I have been my own boss for the past 15 years, taking over or starting nearly a dozen different businesses during that time. When I found myself looking for a new challenge, I chose to enter the world of corporate America but had no idea where to begin. How can you possibly sum up 15 years of entrepreneurial experience on a page or two? I turned to Ellie for help, and it was the best decision I ever made. Not only did she manage to showcase my accomplishments, but she was also somehow able to capture and express my personality and transform my resume from a mere two-dimensional report card to a living embodiment of who I am. I have no doubt this was instrumental in my ability to rapidly win multiple offers and eventually land the job I coveted. I would recommend her writing and coaching services to anyone seeking a new career and, in fact, I already have!
