The Resume Services Rankings, 2018 Full Report
Another year, another survey of where the resume writing industry stands. Who can you trust? Who's still around? Who is still doing the best work?
The top generally stays the same. ResumeWriters.com continues to lead the industry as it prepares to enter its 20th year in business. Great Resumes Fast continues to do the best work at the high end of the market. Career Perfect is still around (thank goodness) and there is a new player on the scene, ZipJob, which looks promising but I still have concerns.
Again, ResumeWriters.com, the granddaddy of them all, is set to ring in 20 years in business in 2019. As I have done for the last 6 years, I have them ranked number 1 as the gold standard in the Resume Writing Industry. They simply continue to do the same work they've always done, and the most resume writers surveyed continued to work with them.
Great Resumes Fast remains at number two at Jessica's expert direction, though, as always, prepare to pay more. GRF continues to hold down to premium priced end of the market. CareerPerfect continue to hold ranking because they continue to do the same work they've always done as well, even after their recent acquisition by TopResume. Seems they've been allowed to maintain their autonomy.
TopResume is holding in the top 4 because they continue to dominate the search engine rankings, though if you check their BBB rating, there are still a lot of concerns there. They have by FAR a greater number of customer complaints than any other company listed in the top half of the table, and their BBB score has fallen all the way to C- and I've dropped their ranking accordingly.
The newcomer is ZipJob, which has seemingly come out of nowhere and they have a decent BBB rating, but if you read my review, I've got plenty of concerns so consider this a wait and see more sort of thing.
The rest of the list pans out with the usuals. CraftResumes.com has an A- BBB rating, but still isn't accredited. And frankly, I just can't recommend any of the bottom 4.
