Frequently Asked Questions
- Why hire a professional to write my resume or CV?
Professional writers know how to write impressive resumes that usually get people invites to interviews. Our certified resume writers know how to craft a resume that will effectively highlight your qualifications and positive attributes, giving prospective employers all the right information. These resumes will get you interview invitations for some of the best jobs in the career of your choice.

According to Frank Fox, Executive Director of the Professional Association of Resume Writers, the Certified Professional Resume Writer is a person who has met industry standards for achieving client-strategic goals and has mastered the craft of resume preparation. The designation means that a CPRW has achieved these excellent resume-writing standards by using all available modern techniques. If you entrust your resume to a CRW (or NCRW), you can be sure that it will speak for you.

- What formats can you create my resume in?
You can receive your resume in any of the following formats: scanned, electronic, or web. Generally, most employers utilize special filters like scanners or OCR to optimize their hiring process. In this case, to be noticed by a filter, a good, scanned version of your resume is often required. The electronic version is meant to be posted online or sent to prospective employers via e-mail. The web resume allows room for creativity. You can present your resume in a more attractive manner, have full control over it, and allow prospective employees the chance to peruse it at their leisure.
- What is the difference between CV and Resume?
The primary difference between a CV and a resume is their respective lengths, content, and purpose. A resume is basically a short, concise summary of all your achievements, skills, and education. It should never exceed two pages. A CV, on the other hand, is a more detailed version of one's education, achievements, and experience. It offers a detailed view into a person's professional life and can exceed two pages in length.
