We reviewed nearly a dozen professional resume writing services based on their pricing, customer service, turnaround times, and—most importantly—the quality of their work product. Writing a quality resume is challenging, time-consuming, and requires a lot of effort. Instead of stressing out, one option is to have a professional do it for you. Because, looking for a job can be stressful, and finding ways to stand out from other job-seekers is often difficult. 1. Best Open-Source Platform: LinkedIn ProFinder LinkedIn ProFinder, which piloted in 2016, is more like a clearinghouse for freelancers than an actual resume writing service. In addition to resume writing, ProFinder is a great source of other types of other freelancers as well, such as graphic designers, photographers, and proofreaders.

We actually tried it out and it took us a couple of days, but we were able to find a freelancer who agreed to write our test resume for $145 (other writers gave us quotes as high as $545). However, because ProFinder is a platform, rather than a service provider, our experience highlighted the need to vet your writer carefully when not using a designated service. Overall, the freelance writer we chose through LinkedIn didn’t meet our expectations. 2. Best Customer Service: TopResume TopResume has built a team of more than 1,500 resume writers across the United States. So that's why we chose TopResume as having the best customer service. But the test resume that we got back from TopResume didn’t quite meet our expectations. The quality of the document was good, but not great, as the Experience and Summary sections seemed a bit short on accomplishments. One nice benefit of TopResume is that you can have your resume scanned free of charge before you decide whether to have it written by a professional. When we tried out the service, we found our resume writer to be very responsive to our needs and they exceeded the number of revisions stated in the agreement. 3. Best Price: The Muse Master Coach gives you a 60-minute chat and unlimited updates for two weeks for $479. We found our writer to be more lenient when it came to revisions and rated them excellent. The Muse is a New York City-based online career platform founded in 2011 by Kathryn Minshew, Alexandra Cavoulacos, and Melissa McCreery. It prides itself on providing career advice to new generations of job-seekers. The Muse offers three basic plans: Mentor, Coach, and Master Coach. We chose The Muse as our best-priced option because its rates were extremely competitive, especially given the individualized attention that was provided in each of the packages available. 4. Runner-Up, Best Overall: Monster.com We chose Monster.com as our runner-up because, like Let’s Eat, Grandma, it produced a test resume that had many outstanding benefits, including great Skills and Experience sections and lots of industry-related keywords that would get picked up by an applicant tracking system (ATS). The biggest drawbacks were that our test resume from Monster.com included some poor formatting and Monster lacks as many additional services. In addition to its vast database of current job opportunities, Monster offers a resume writing service with three plans. The third plan, Premier, includes a resume, cover letter, and a LinkedIn profile makeover. The resume writing service has a strict policy of any revisions being requested within five business days. And, if you’re not happy with your resume after 60 days, Monster will rewrite it free of charge. 5. Best Overall: Let’s Eat, Grandma We chose LEG as our best overall due to the high-quality resume that the company produced when we tested the service. Several sections of our test resume were among the best that we received from all providers we tested. Although the Starter Package was the second-priciest service we reviewed, the cover letter was a nice touch and made it one of the best values. Overall, LEG produced a top-quality document in a very timely fashion. Its Accelerated Package runs for $349 and includes everything in the Starter Package plus a LinkedIn profile review. And, if you want the Premium Package, it also includes all features of lower packages, plus a second version of your resume or cover letter, a thank-you note for recruiters, and a cold email for recruiters, all for $479.
