a-perfect-resume.com review and discount
A website selling resumes and offering a plenty of paid services for your career. The prices are above average, but the process of buying is very inconvenient as the site is outdated. They also don’t have a proper support system, so I don’t think I will buy from them again.
Perfect Resume is simple, pretty outdated website that is quite difficult to navigate. They offer traditional resume services (resume, cover letter and thank you letter) along with less popular ones (strategy planning, web resume, federal resume, biography etc).
This website works in a quite unusual way. They have a list of services and you can buy them straightaway. Standard level resume costs $265 and that was what I have chosen. Then you’re expected to get in touch with them for your resume. Alternatively, they offer a useful option of a free resume critique. To use it, you need to upload your resume, and they will get in touch and explain you the weak points and tell how much they will charge for fixing them. Also, you don’t need to order extra cover letter or thank you letter as they are included in a standard package.
After I paid, I have contacted the site staff via email and attached my old resume and career goals. I also stated that I would like to get my resume written no later than in 5 days. The next day they gave me a call to clarify some points in my employment history and 3 days later I got my package.
Quality of writing and support
Overall, the resume was good, but it has too many sophisticated phrases in it. Maybe, for a federal resume or a professor’s CV that works good, but I’m a sales manager and I would like my achievements to be presented in simple language.
I will say it again – the site is very uncomfortable to use. It took me about 10 minutes to find the information most of the sites place in bold on their start page. The process of dealing via email only was quite unusual, too. The price for a single resume is above average, but as I also got 2 letters, I don’t mind much. However, I would recommend you to stay on more convenient services, with comfortable process of ordering.
