Frequently Asked Questions

Regardless of what anybody else says, looking for a good job is a competition. While you may have really impressive qualifications and experience it’s also important to keep in mind that a lot of other people do as well. So when the time comes for the recruiter to compare you with other candidates the only way to really set yourself apart from other equally qualified people is to have the most impressive resume. With the help of our writers and their industry know-how, your qualifications will be more polished and attention-getting than self-written resumes based on samples.
Absolutely! Don’t misunderstand. We do not write your resume for you, but rather you collaborate with our resume writer to craft a document that truly reflects you and makes you feel confident. This collaboration is vital as the success of your resume depends a lot on the details that you provide directly to the writer and your responses on the questionnaire.
Once you place your order with us you will be asked to create an account and login for our online system. When you have your account set up you will be able to access your personal message board through which you will be able to communicate with your writer at any time. As well, you can also use your message board to upload any additional documents or other pertinent information that you may have to include in your resume.
This is really a matter of choice, but we do always stress the importance of sending a cover letter with your resume. Cover letters are really useful in that they allow you some space to say a few things about yourself that really are not meant to be included on your resume. It helps to think of your cover letter as the sales-pitch that compels the recruiter to move on to reading your resume. If you are interested in cover letter writing services, Grand Resume offers discount pricing for those who order resumes with cover letters together.
There are three simple steps to using our services: Decide on what services you need the most and then fill out the order form directly on the site or contact our customer service hotline. At this time you will also be prompted to create an account and login ID. Once your account is created you must fill in one of our specially designed career information/goals questionnaires, as this will be the basis for much of the writers input. When you are finished with the questionnaire you may make contact with your assigned writer via your message board. At that point you can collaborate with them and monitor the writing process. Within 24-48 hours you will receive your new resume, which you can review and recommend some revisions if you feel it needs some. Once you are fully satisfied you are also free to request additional services such as resume distribution and resume translation. Either way, from here your career possibilities improve vastly.
