StrongResume.com today announced the opening of an online marketplace of resume writers competing to write your resume. The site has already attracted over 175 professional resume writers from across the country.
With major companies such as Yahoo! dumping thousands of employees at once into the "need a job" pool, job seekers are increasingly in need of a helping hand in their job search. For most, writing a resume is an intimidating project which turns the job search from frustrating to miserable.
Resume writing services have long been popular but ironically these services are often outsourced to overseas workers contributing even more to unemployment in this country.
"After paying $279 for a resume written by someone with no knowledge of my industry and delivered a week later than promised, I knew there had to be a better way," said Chris Crompton, StrongResume.com founder. "I decided to take an 'amazon.com' style approach where the resume writers themselves are the products competing head-to-head."
Those in need of resume services can filter through writers by various criteria including location, job specialization and even the education level of the writers. From there, buyers can compare writer profiles to pick the best one for the job.
No matter their experience level or background, all writers have agreed to offer an introductory rate of $35 for an entry-level resume with a maximum 48 hour turnaround. Rates increase at set intervals based upon positive reviews left by customers.
The premise of StrongResume.com is that resume writers compete for your business and may command higher rates only if they consistently deliver outstanding quality resumes. Everything is transparent, with customer reviews posted directly to the site. This approach favors the job seeker at a time when they need it most.
