Want professional help with your resume?

If you decide NOT to use me to help you with your resume, that’s okay, it’s important to pick someone who you feel has the right skills and experience to do the best job for you. It’s critical you pick a good one who knows how to test on real ATS.

Check their LinkedIn recommendations; how many are there? How may endorsements? (while endorsements are NOT indicators of skill, they ARE indicator of how much traction their profile is getting. Count how many categories have a 99+ and compare).

Open the profiles of the people who recommended that person to see if they have a resume posted. That doesn’t guarantee that person wrote it, but if the person has enough recommendations, you can start to recognize a style. Make sure you are comfortable with that style before you pay them anything.
