ResumeEdge.com is a writing service that specializes in resume writing and CV editing. Its website really looks modern and sleek, and it is very easy to navigate. Instead of overcrowding it with unnecessary information, it practically just displays its services, packages, and testimonials, among others. In addition, it also provides its contact details on top of the page in case customers would like to contact them first before anything else. And here is my small ResumEedge review.
Aside from resume and CV writing, ResumeEdge also offers cover letter writing, social profiles, and builder. Builder is a unique service that provides you with expert advice, section-by-section tips, industry keywords, grammar and spell check, and a real-time resume grader. It can run from $1.95 for a days worth of subscription up to $49.95 for a yearly subscription.
Impressively, all the editors from Resume Edge are claimed to be certified through the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches Professional Resume Writers. Each editor has his or her own profile where you can read their specializations, years of experience, and other additional information.
While they do publish the profiles of its writers, I could not find any sample work, which I can check to gauge the quality of their writing skills. In other words, you would have to rely on their written biographies unless you just go ahead in ordering a paper and find out for yourself.
Because I was only ordering a resume to apply for an internship, my entry-level CV was only priced at $119. If you ask me, I find their prices quite high considering a resume is only a page or two and, basically, all the information placed there will be coming from me, anyway.
To offset the high price, I tried looking for discounts, promo code, or coupon codes but my efforts proved futile. I had to go ahead and pay $119 without any discount and waited for my resume.
During the wait, I browsed through some testimonials to check how reliable the website is. As expected, onsite customer reviews are generally positive with customers thanking ResumeEdge.com for a job well done. Like any other writing service that I have availed of in the past, I also scoured the Internet for some offsite reviews.
I found a credible review site and read through his comprehensive feedback of Resume Edge. He found his resume to generic for the price he paid, which kind of alarmed me because I was expecting an excellent resume for the price that I paid.
Unfortunately for me, I faced the same dilemma and found for myself that they do provide generic resumes that I probably could have done myself if I had the time to work on it. For $119, I honestly expected a resume that will truly stand out and impress my future employers. After all, I wanted to apply in a good and reputable company.
Overall, I was pretty much let down by the website. Because of that, I am only giving it a fair rating. There is nothing too appalling about it, but I expected better and deserved better for the amount of money I paid for a resume. If you are looking for high-quality CV, I would recommend looking for an alternative site.
