The Resume Services Rankings, 2016 Full Report
At the top of the table, there's a couple of interesting new developments to report.
ResumeWriters.com maintains it's position as the industry standard for Resume Writing Services, nothing new there.
ResumeEdge.com and CareerPerfect.com continue to round out the top three, as they should because along with ResumeWriters, they're traditionally the major resume writer networks. A bit of news here though. ResumeEdge moved to $250 as a base fee for a professional resume, a higher price point that CareerPerfect had experimented with in the past but abandoned. We'll see if any of the other big three follow suit.
But even more adventurous (in my opinion, at least) is the fact that ResumeEdge has seemingly abandoned the package model that most resume services use. IE: you get a "package" with a cover letter or e-resume or even LinkedIn profile added on, and it's cheaper. Now everything at ResumeEdge is a la carte.
Finally, there is one big new entrant in the resume writer network field, TopResume.com. They grew out of an earlier silicon valley startup ("pivot" is the term to use, I guess) and they seemingly have some deep pockets behind them, either VC money or something similar. They're coming in smack in the middle of the traditional $150-$250 price range, with a pro resume running you the usual $200. Not enough info on their service quality yet. Will report more next year.
I don't usually like to comment on sites I de-list, but it is notable that ResumeService.com has gone dark. They seemed like a serious contender a few years ago. And 1-on-1-Resumes has seemingly disappeared from the web, but they were never highly rated by most people.
