What’s different about ResumeSpice?
What makes ResumeSpice unique is that it was developed by recruiters, based on first-hand knowledge of what recruiters, hiring managers, and HR professionals are really looking for from candidates.There are plenty of career and resume services available, but what we’ve found is that instead producing practical, effective resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, and coaching services that produce results, they sell job seekers on bells and whistles that simply don’t matter to hiring authorities. Because ResumeSpice was developed by recruiters, we know how to highlight what really matters to decision makers – while removing the distractions that don’t.

Is ResumeSpice a professionally certified resume writing service?
Yes! ResumeSpice is certified by the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches (PAWRCC). In addition to being certified by the PAWRCC, ResumeSpice conducts are own proprietary resume writing program to thoroughly train our resume writing professionals on our proven methodology and approach to writing resumes.
I'm trying to decide between the different resume services. What is the difference between them?
Our resume options are based on the professional level of the client. For example, if you are currently an executive or are targeting an executive position such as President, CFO, CIO, VP of Finance, Marketing Director, you would fall within our Executive Resume service. If you are a professional with over 2 years of experience, but are not at the executive level, you would fall within our Professional Resume service. Lastly, if you are an entry-level candidate or have up to 2 years of professional experience, you would fall within our Entry-Level resume service.
The variance in pricing between the three resume services reflects the difference in the amount of work involved in producing each type of document. Typically, longer work histories and higher level positions require more time from our team of resume writers.
What is the process of working with ResumeSpice?

I don’t have a resume / cover letter / LinkedIn profile. Is that a problem?
Not at all! Many of the job seekers we work with don’t have one before working with us.
How long should my resume be?
The length of a resume depends on the length and depth of someone’s work experience. While someone who has been in the workforce for a limited time might have a one page resume, someone with 5-10 years of experience might need two. We typically recommend no more than three pages, but there are rare exceptions. We get asked this question so often, we wrote a blog post about it. Click here to read it.
Where can I see some sample ResumeSpice resumes?
To view some sample resumes, please click here. Please note that every ResumeSpice resume is customized to fit our clients' specific situation and career objectives. We do not use templates, so while you can expect your resume to reflect the overall quality of the format, verbiage, and content of our sample resumes - yours will be written and customized just for you.
Can I purchase just a resume? Or just a cover letter?
You can purchase any combination of services you like. Most of our clients purchase a resume, LinkedIn profile, and cover letter - and once they secure an interview, they purchase the interview prep. However, you are free to select any combination of services that meets your needs. Click here to view our career services (resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn, interview prep) and here to view our career coaching options.
Can I select my resume writer / career consultant?
If you’ve worked with one of our career consultants in the past, you can request them. Otherwise, we will match you up with one of our consultants that best fits your background and career objectives.
What quality control process does ResumeSpice use?
Every resume or other work product we submit to a client is reviewed by a minimum of two sets of eyes. Unlike some other services that utilize contractors (often offshore), we only utilize internal employees located at our headquarters in Houston, Texas. Our quality is of the utmost importance to us.
Do you work with candidates outside the US?
Yes. We only work in English and on English resumes, but we can work with candidates anywhere. To date, we've worked with professionals throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, South America, and Africa.
Does ResumeSpice guarantee its work?
