Importance of Resume
In today’s competitive professional job market, a resume is usually required to advance further in the interview process. An excellent resume will show companies right away why the individual is a good fit.
It gives employers a deeper understanding of the candidates’ strengths, skills, and experience and explains what they bring to the company. A well-written resume grabs the attention of employers and can lead you to an interview.
With the increase in competition among job seekers, people turn to resume writing sites, which help them make a professional resume. There are thousands of companies that help you do that. While some of them are genuine many of them, do not fill the shoe.
We have come across a famous website, resumewriter.co.in, which promises to do the same.
Overview of The Website
This website, resumewriter.co.in, promises to help you create a professional skill-based resume with the industry’s best-skilled writers. We first analyzed the website deeply and came across a few things.
When we opened the website and surfed a little bit, we reached the sample resumes part of this website. When I tried to open it to read, it brought me back to the page’s starting. That means we cannot read the sample resumes.
There is a part of the websites where you can find testimonials; those testimonials are not credible. There is no information about these people, their resumes, or their job background. Which already looks a little fishy.
Furthermore, in the contact information, there is no office or headquarters address mentioned; claiming to be a big company that has been in the market for 15 years and has served 25+ countries (as noted on the website) should at least have an office.
If we look at the “how it works” section, the information provided is very vague. They haven’t mentioned the time it will take to create the resume or the refund policy.
There are five options to choose from according to your experience level.
The first is resume writing for freshers, which costs you INR399 for people with 0–1-year experience.
Resume writing for entry-level, i.e., 1-3 years of experience, has been cost at INR1199(okay, but that big of a jump in price?)
For people with 3-7 years of experience, the pricing is INR 1899; for 7-10 years of experience, it is INR 2299, and for 10-13 years of experience, INR2599.
Quality of Work
After speaking with some of the people who have used this service, we learned that the quality of work they provide is awful. They take a lot of time to make a draft (sometimes even 5-6 months or not at all) which also turns out to be incomplete and very immature.
Most people who ask for alterations do not get a response, and the sales guy blocks them when asked for modifications.
The customer service and the people working under are very unprofessional and do not know how to address complaints and issues.
The resumes are written by undergraduate college students who copy-paste your resume or cv and do some graphics.
Sixty percent of the people we’ve interacted with, including ourselves, have not gotten any work done; the service stops responding as soon as you pay them.
And some people got lucky and got their resumes done in a very unprofessional manner and got ghosted as soon as they asked for alterations.
Many reviews suggest that this website is an absolute fraud, and people with no experience are working on it. They will stop contacting you as soon as you’re done with the payment.
After scouting the multiple possible options you could choose from, we are listing a few of the best websites based on the parameters of Integrity, Accessibility, and value for money.
TopResume is recommended on over 5,000 job sites and is the best online resume writing service for lower budgets.
You get connected with a professional writer, and the resume is completed over several iterations but in 7-10 days.
They guarantee that you will get an interview call in 60 days, or they’ll rewrite your resume.
Apart from their paid resume writing services, they also provide a free in-depth resume analysis service that you can use to review and improve your resume if you are not sure about hiring a professional yet.
Let’s Eat, Grandma
Let’s Eat, Grandma is an award-winning resume writing service that sits some notches higher than TopResume in the budget range but is the top-end of quality in mid-range resume writing services.
They have different packages, which include Cover-letter, LinkedIn Profile, and a guide on outreach messages and cold-mailing.
They also offer free resume review and a sample of resumes they have created along with their work procedure.
Paying for your resume could or could not be a significant investment in your career depending on your situation and needs; you can find yourself with possible job offers in less time, but there are also some risks associated with it.
We feel the resume writing services, in general, are not worth the money and time you’ll invest, as no one knows your strengths and weakness better than yourself.
You’ll want to increase the visibility of projects, experiences, and skills, which are your strongest suit to excel in further interviews.
So, you’ll be investing time in communicating these things with the person responsible for writing your resume over multiple iterations while concurrently investing money; hence the resume will take more time than making it yourself.
We recommend understanding the basics of resume making from articles, blogs, or YouTube videos and finally drafting your resume by yourself.
Coming to resumewriter.co.in Specifically, after going through the website and reviews from the past customers via various sources such as Google reviews, Glassdoor, and Mouth shut, we found that this website does not fit any criteria that the prospective customers would be looking for.
There is a big chance of losing your money and getting subpar results or no output.
However, if you are still keen on utilizing the services of such professional resume writing websites, there are a variety of better alternatives for you to choose from that we have listed above; you can choose from them based on your needs and budget.
