Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to all your questions about our Resume Preparation Services & Other Job Search Services

Q. Im’ interested in working with a resume preparation services form. How do I get started working with you?

A. We’ve tried to provide you with a huge amount of information about our resume preparation services on this website, so let me back up and simplify things for you. Step-by-step, here is how we can begin working together today:

STEP 1: Tell us a little about yourself and request a quote for your project. We individually assess every incoming quote request and will email you a personalized quote, usually within 1-2 business days.

STEP 2: Follow the web link that is sent to you in your quote to select from the various packages and options available. Decide which one best meets your needs and then place your order. I highly recommend that you consider our SILVER package at the minimum as you will almost certainly need a cover letter to accompany your resume. Because of the many bonuses, the GOLD package is very popular. You can also order just the resume for now and have us create other documents in the future, as you need them (though, you will only get all the free bonuses if you order them now as part of a package).

STEP 3: Place your order using our 24/7 online order system. When your order is placed, you will immediately be directed to a page with instructions for downloading the intake worksheet so that you can begin gathering the information we need to complete your project. You will also receive a receipt for your project via email and a welcome email from me with more instructions and information.

STEP 4: Within 1-2 business days, we will ship and/or be in touch with you about any bonuses that came with your project so that you can begin benefiting from them right away.

STEP 5: As soon as your intake worksheet is complete and you have gathered all the information that we have asked you for, email it to us. Some clients complete it and return it the same day they get it. Others take a few days or even a few weeks. As soon as we receive it from you, we will immediately schedule your project and will get back in touch with you to let you know the exact date you can expect your proof (our turnaround is generally about 10 business days) – along with the direct telephone lines and email addresses you will need to reach us directly while we are working on your project.

STEP 6: We will reach out to you (by phone and/or email), so that we start to get to know you and ensure that we have a full understanding of your needs while we work on your project. Your project includes up to one hour of telephone time as necessary. Sometimes we use this while we are writing the first proof and sometimes we use it during the revision stages of your project. For routine questions, because it is easier for most people, we often use email. If you ever wish to speak to your writer, feel free to pick up the phone and give them a call (we will give you their direct telephone number).

STEP 7: We will email you the proofs of your documents within 10 business days and give you a chance to thoroughly review them. Then, we will be available to work with you (by phone or email) to make any corrections or refinements necessary to obtain your complete 100% satisfaction. Our agreement allows up to three revision sessions within a period of 15 days, if you need them.

STEP 8: Once we receive your written (via email) approval of the proofs, we will convert the documents into the various final formats (Word, PDF, and ASCII) and provide them to you. Now, you have everything you need to conduct a fast, highly successful job search.

STEP 9: Our relationship doesn’t end there! We know you are going to be blown away by the quality of our work and the results you get from your new resume. Because of that, many of our clients have been with us through every step of their careers. We will be here for you in the future if we can help you with resume updates or anything else.

Q. What is your guarantee for your resume preparation services?

If at any time during the assessment, consultation, writing, and revision resume preparation services process you have concerns about your writer, or if you are not completely happy with the quality of your documents, JUST LET US KNOW AND WE WILL MAKE IT RIGHT – even pairing you with another writer and rewriting for FREE, if that is what it takes. Our primary goal is your satisfaction and your job search SUCCESS.

Rest assured by choosing us you’ll be getting the strongest resume possible combined with the finest service in the industry.

That’s not only a guarantee, but my personal promise. If ever you feel we’ve haven’t lived up to our promises or your expectations, I not only ask, but actually insist you talk to me personally.

I’ll make it right. No excuses. No double talk. No hassles.
You have my word on it. And my word counts – because the buck stops here – with me – Michelle Dumas.

Q. How much do you charge for your resume preparation services and what basis do you use to set prices? Is there room for negotiation?

A. We individually review and consider each and every request for a quote, but to standardize pricing for our resume preparation services as much as possible, we calculate our quotes using a “formula” that consider such things as profession, level of responsibility, length of employment and career objective. We do not negotiate our fees. As we are not willing to compromise on the quality we deliver or the time and expertise it takes to deliver that quality, we are not able to compromise on pricing. Our current range is $395 (entry-level project) to $895 (top executive project). The vast majority of resumes that we write fall in the $595-$695 range.

Q. How come there are resume preparation services companies that charge less for a resume?

A. There’s a famous maxim I’d like to share with you: “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

Across the country cost charged for resume preparation services range from $99 to well over $5000. The expertise behind them varies just as much, and price is not the best indication of quality. Michelle Dumas, is one of the most highly credentialed resume writers in the U.S., and is a well-known, recognized authority in the industry. Despite her superior expertise, the top-notch credentials of our entire team, and Michelle’s one-on-one guidance and consultations on every project, our prices are in the mid-range.

The investment we ask you to make is a reflection of the professionalism, service, and quality that you will receive in return.

Michelle has built Distinctive Career Services, LLC to the level of success and recognition that it enjoys today by always stressing quality over quantity. Our business model is based on providing outstanding quality and service to a select number of clients. Our services are most appropriate for individuals who understand that a professional resume is an essential investment in their career, and who value the unmatched professional expertise, personal attention, focus on details, emphasis on quality, and commitment to helping you achieve your career goals successfully that we bring to every project.

The economy is tight right now. That means good jobs are at a premium and the competition for those jobs is fierce. Now–more than ever–it is critical that you differentiate yourself from your competition in the job market. A powerful, professionally written resume is essential. As pioneering industry leaders you can trust Distinctive Career Services to deliver, and to not only meet your needs but exceed them.

While you are thinking about pricing, let us ask you a question:

How much do you think it is costing you to be unemployed or under-employed?

Imagine for a moment that you are currently employed and have been toiling away in a job paying you $70,000 a year. You know you are worth more, and you have your eye on a job – a promotion – for which you would be paid $95,000. That’s a $25,000 difference.
An increase in YOUR salary of over $2,080 per month.

So, can I ask you again? How much does it cost YOU to be underemployed?

Currently employed? Calculate your returns from having a new resume professionally written

Example 1Example 2Example 3
Current Pay$35,000.00/yr$55,000$75,000
Anticipated Pay in New Job$50,000.00/yr$75,000$100,000
Total Increase in Your Pay$15,000.00/yr
$60.00/work day
$80.00/work day
$100.00/work day
Estimated Investment in Resume Services$450$550$650
Your Return on Investment (ROI)Your new resume pays for itself in less than 8 days. In the first year alone your ROI = $14,550.00Your new resume pays for itself in less than 7 days. In the first year alone your ROI = $19,450.00Your new resume pays for itself in less than 7 days. In the first year alone your ROI = $24,950.0


Just a week or so in your new job, and just the INCREASE in your salary is already paying you returns on the charge for your new resume. But a $25,000 increase is moderate. It is not AT ALL uncommon for clients to come back telling us about increases of $30,000, $40,000, even $50,000 and more.

But, what if you are currently unemployed? How much is it costing you to be out of work?

Let’s imagine for a moment that in your last job you were, again, earning $70,000. Now, unemployed, every day counts.

Each week of unemployment you lose $1,346.
Every single unemployed weekday represents $269 in lost wages.

So, how much is it costing YOU to be unemployed?

How much would it be worth to you if we could shorten your job search by just a couple of weeks? By a few days?

Of course, for many people, this return on investment would be MUCH higher. Approximately 70% of our clients claim personal incomes that exceed $100,000…many far in excess.

Could you produce these results with a resume you have written yourself? It is possible, but are you willing to gamble with your career and your financial security? Answer this question honestly: In today’s competitive job market, which approach do you think will be most likely to open doors, generate interviews, and land the job you want? Your self-written resume or a professionally written resume from Distinctive Documents? If our professionally written resume gets you back to work just a few days sooner than you would have achieved on your own, you immediately begin reaping returns on your investment. We think the answer is obvious! Your career is worth it!

Q. Why should I hire your resume preparation services company to write my resume?

A. When we first brought our business to the web in 1996, we were one of just a handful of professional resume preparation services offering our craft on the Internet. Literally, we were one of the very first resume services on the Internet. Today there are hundreds, if not thousands (some good; many with very questionable abilities and credentials).

So why would you hire us?

Very frankly, we invite you to compare our service to others. Could you have your resume written for a cheaper price somewhere else? Sure you could, if a “cheap” resume is your goal. But remember, you will almost always get what you pay for.

At Distinctive Documents, we pride ourselves on providing unmatched quality, attention to detail, and top-notch personal service. Additionally, we provide you with details on our credentials, countless testimonials from our clients, and samples of our work from real projects we have worked on.

Our team of writers are among the most deeply credentialed and accomplished in the industry. Additionally, each and every one of them is mentored and supervised on every project by Michelle Dumas. With dual writing certification (NCRW and CPRW) and as a Certified Personal Branding Strategist (CPBS), Credentialed Career Manager (CCM), Job & Career Transition Coach (JCTC), and Certified Employment Interview Professional (CEIP), Michelle Dumas is recognized as one of the leading resume development specialists in the nation.

Go ahead and compare. We are confident you’ll be back. More than 50% of our new business comes as referrals from past satisfied clients. There is a reason for that! We look forward to counting YOU among our family of satisfied clients.

Q. Can I see some examples of resumes you have written?

A. Absolutely! Just click HERE.

Before and After Resume Examples from a Professional Preparation Services FirmFor a small fee, you could also download a copy of the “101 Before-and-After Resume Examples” e-book, published by Michelle Dumas. This page includes links to various books we have contributed to, as well. Numerous examples are included in these published books and can be viewed at your local library or bookstore.

Many resume writing firms will refuse to show you examples of their work. We suggest that this make you very, very wary. They often cite concerns that potential customers will “steal” from them and copy their work and then never hire them. While we suppose there is some validity to this concern, we choose to believe that our customers are smarter than that and realize that copying a resume created for someone else is absolutely NOT the same thing as having a resume custom-written and created specifically for them.

Additionally, we can’t imagine hiring a firm to perform a highly specialized, creative service without first reviewing the quality and style of past work. All it takes is to call yourself a “resume writer” is to hang out a sign and say you are one. Skill and experience in the field is not a prerequisite, and as a result, there are many “fly by night” resume operations. If you are comparing our services to others we ask that besides considering professional associations and credentials (you will find that ours are unmatched), you also compare the quality of our work.

However, please do be aware that the samples on our website are meant only to demonstrate our writing style and quality. We do not provide specific samples on request. The fundamentals of good resume writing are the same for every profession. While there are nuances in design and presentation (resumes for an attorney and a graphic design artist look very different, for example) what changes the most is the particular vocabulary for each profession. You are an expert on that and we have many sources if research is needed.

Q. How do I know I will like my resume?

A. Our website provides many samples of our work (see above for links) to give clients a clear sense of our writing style and quality. We encourage prospective clients to take a look and see if our style appeals to them. You can be assured we will produce a similar quality product for you, and we will work with you until you are satisfied with your resume. Plus, your resume must also meet *our* high standards of excellence.

Q. Do you have references from your resume preparation services that I can check?

A. Absolutely!

We know that some people are hesitant to purchase a service like this one on the Internet. We want you to be completely comfortable and confident in your decision to hire us.

Feel free to verify our credentials and professional standing with the various professional associations – NRWA, PARW/CC. Read testimonials from our past clients. Review samples of our award-winning work (you can review other samples in the books listed on the About Us page of this site). Take a look at Michelle’s LinkedIn profile.

Q. How do you gather the information to write my resume?

A. We use a combination of techniques to gather information about your career aspirations, your professional experience, and your most important achievements.

Our resume worksheet is the backbone of this process. The worksheet has been specifically designed and refined over the years to extract not only the details of your career, but to distill information about your most important achievements and the value you have added in each position.

Once we receive this worksheet we begin drafting your resume and then follow up with one-on-one email and/or telephone consultation with you to clarify issues and prompt your memory about additional accomplishments and qualifications.

The worksheet requires some thought and time on your part, but many clients tell us that this is a valuable experience for them, enabling them to think about their experiences in new ways and adding focus to their career goals.

If you are comparing our services to others, be aware that some resume writing firms use worksheets ONLY and you will never have the opportunity for personal interaction with the writer. There are obvious problems with this method! Other firms use telephone interviews ONLY. While this may sound good, it is actually NOT the best way to gather the detailed and accurate information that we need as resume writers to do our jobs.

To write a truly excellent resume requires that you put some time and thought into gathering data, and sometimes this requires a bit of digging beyond what you remember “off the top of your head.” Our worksheet takes you by the hand and leads you step-by-step through this process. It gives you the time to make sure we have accurate data to work with rather than just what you “think you remember” in a telephone conversation. Once we have the completed worksheet, and begin working with what you gathered for us, we are in a much better position to ask you clarifying questions and dig for more information.

Q. Can I have the resume development worksheet before I decide to work with you?

A. Our worksheet is intellectual property representing years of working with clients. We only send it out once someone has become our client.

Q. Do you offer telephone consultations to gather the information for writing my resume?

A. Yes, but before that takes place we have each new client complete a detailed questionnaire that probes them for information about their background and objectives. We’ve found that we get much more complete and accurate information when clients have the opportunity to sit with the questions, go away and think about them, do research – all on their own timetable – rather than being on the spot to answer them in a phone interview.

Once that questionnaire is complete, we allow up to an hour of telephone consultation for each project as needed. At least part of this generally takes place during the revision stage of the process when you and your writer have the draft as a structure to work with. This allows for a much more efficient use of time.

Q. Can I meet with you at your office?

A. We work with clients around the world solely by phone, email, fax, and regular mail. Because we are an information-based service, these formats lend themselves perfectly for our situation. This allows us to be much more efficient with time, and clients who work during the day can still have ample access to us.

Q. How is payment made?

A. We require a 50% retainer (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express accepted) prior to emailing you the resume development worksheet. The balance is due when you return the completed worksheet. As with nearly all commissioned, customized services payment in full is required before we begin writing. Our online order system makes it easy for you to order and make payment. You’ll be sent some instructions for using the order system when we send you a quote for your project.

Credit Cards Accepted for Resume Preparation Services

Q. Do you offer payment plans?

A. We do not offer payment plans, but we do take credit cards. We charge half of the service up front and other half once you have returned the worksheet. This route allows you to begin the process while controlling when the second half of the project is charged.

Q. How long will this take? What is your turnaround time?

A. In nearly all cases, your first proof will be ready for you to review within ten (10) business days of the day we receive your completed worksheet.*

We work on projects in the order they are received. When we receive a completed worksheet we schedule the project for completion in the order that it was returned to us and immediately email the client to inform him or her of the schedule.

We have always emphasized quality over quantity and believe that “rush job” resumes will sacrifice quality.

Because we are almost always booked “solid” we are unable to accommodate requests for rush orders. We encourage clients to plan ahead and begin working with us before there is an urgent need for a resume.

In short: Quality simply can’t be rushed and we have consciously chosen to focus on providing top-quality services rather than the cheap, high-volume model followed by some of our competitors. Our services are best for those who are planning ahead and who value quality and personal service over a “rush job.”

* During high-volume times we may need to extend turnaround slightly, but we only do this when we have no other choice (we will NOT sacrifice quality just to rush a project), and we will let you know if this is a possibility at the time you return the worksheet, so you can plan appropriately.

Q. What if I want changes to the proof of the resume?

A. We will email you the proofs of your documents within 10 business days and give you a chance to thoroughly review them. Then, we will be available to work with you (by phone or email) to make any corrections or refinements necessary to obtain your complete 100% satisfaction.

Our agreement allows up to three revision sessions within a period of 15 days, if you need them.

Many times clients approve the first proof just as it is. With no changes at all!

If changes are needed, they are usually just minor corrections to dates, company names, or places. But, whatever you need we will work with you.

We have two goals: 1) to make sure you have a document that will generate the best possible results and 2) to make sure you leave our engagement absolutely, 100% satisfied.

Q. After I approve the document proofs, what do I get?

A. Once you approve the final proof, we will finalize the project and email you:

  • Microsoft Word file,
  • PDF file (you would need the free Adobe viewer to access this file), and
  • ASCII text (electronic, for use in email and on the Internet).

Essentially, we provide you with ALL the document formats you will need for a successful job search. Unlike some service providers, we don’t nickel-and-dime you with all sorts of unexpected charges. Our top priority and our entire mission is centered on helping you achieve your career goals…and we make sure you have ALL the tools you need to make this happen!

Q. Have you written resumes for senior executives?

A. We have prepared resumes for hundreds of executives including those in COO, CFO and CEO roles. Many of our clients have been employed by large organizations such as the World Bank, General Motors, General Electric, and Phillip Morris to name a very few. We’ve also prepared resumes for those in high government offices including Presidential staff members. Presently, 64% of our client base is at the executive level and 67% earn a personal income of six-figures or higher.

Q. I am a new college graduate (or a student about to graduate) is it worth the investment for me to have my resume professionally written?

A. How much money did you or your parents just spend on your new degree? $40,000? $50,000? $60,000? $80,000? More? Let me ask you…do you think it is unreasonable to ask you to invest a few hundred dollars promoting that degree? Professional assistance is the sure way to ensure you have an edge over the thousands of other new graduates you are competing with for jobs.

Q. What is your philosophy for resume development?

A. We think of a resume as a self-marketing document. It is essentially an advertisement that communicates your qualifications and the value that you would bring to a prospective employer or client through your ability to solve their problems and deliver a return on their investment in hiring you. Furthermore, you only have 15 – 30 seconds to convey this value and to capture the reader’s attention, convincing them that your resume is worth reading in more detail, or that they should call you for an interview. Clear, succinct writing is essential. Knowing what to include and how to present it is part of our craft. We begin each resume from scratch and develop a strategy that best portrays your experience in conjunction with your career objective.

With the above in mind, and a goal of achieving the best results possible, every resume that leaves our office incorporates the following:

1) Immediately discernible focus and value proposition.
2) Emphasis on benefits and results rather than just tasks and responsibilities.
3) Clear demonstration of why the employer needs you, how you can satisfy those needs, and that you have superior ability to meet those needs.
4) Dynamic and compelling yet succinct writing style to sustain reader interest.
5) Visually attractive design to set your resume apart in the stacks and draw the eye to key qualifications.

Q. I have an old resume. Couldn’t you just edit it for a lesser fee?

A. We do not edit resumes. If you choose to hire us for our resume preparation services, we will be starting completely from “scratch” to develop a totally new, dramatically improved resume. We are perfectionists and believe in excellence. If we try to edit an “average” resume, all you have in the end is a reworded and somewhat stronger “average” resume. If you work with us, we will undergo a very intensive information gathering process that will help us uncover your unique value proposition and the success stories that support it. At the end of the process you will have a superb resume that provides you with incredible competitive advantage in the job market.

Q. I have an existing resume that I think is pretty good, but I know it still needs work and I am not able or am not ready to invest in having it completely rewritten at this time. Is there some way that I could still work with you?

A. Yes. You should book a one-on-one resume improvement consultation with Michelle Dumas. During your scheduled 45-minute appointment, Michelle will meet with you by telephone to review your resume in detail.

She’ll answer your questions, consult with you about challenges and problems you are having with your resume, and offer expert advice and tips to give your resume a true edge in a job market that is becoming more competitive by the day.

You’ll come away from your telephone meeting with fresh ideas, new clarity, and a real understanding of the simple changes that you can make yourself to turn your average resume into a superb, results-generating resume.

Q. I will also need a cover letter (or other job search documents). How do I order that?

A. Most clients have us write at least one cover letter for them in addition to the resume. We also write biographies, networking resumes, follow-up letters, and many other types of job search documents. If you know you will need these, we encourage you to look at our money-saving bundles (GOLD, SILVER, and PLATINUM packages–we’ll email you details on this after you request a quote) as you will receive many valuable free bonuses by ordering this way. However, one we have written a resume for you, we would be happy to assist you with any of these documents in the future, on an a la carte basis. You can see our current offerings and individual prices for documents here.

Q. I am not sure of my career goal. Can you help me?

A. It’s very important that your resume be written with your career goal clearly in mind. Sometimes searching a job board and conducting additional research can help you determine a direction. If you prefer more one-on-one help, we can refer you to a career coach, and then you can come back to us when you’re ready for our resume preparation services.

Q. I want to change industries, can you help me?

A. If you will be doing the same type of work in a different industry (e.g. sporting goods sales vs. car sales) we will emphasize the skills (sales skills in this case) that transfer from one industry to the next.

Q. I want to make a complete career change, can you help me?

A. If you are truly changing careers (e.g. going from IT into Nursing), you will need a resume that is specially prepared for such situations. We are especially skilled at career change resumes. We enjoy the challenge of these, and are very good at demonstrating how existing skills can transfer to the new career.

Q. I live in a country other than the U.S. Are your services appropriate for me?

A. That depends. While our client base is global, our resumes are written in English only, and are prepared in a US/Canadian style. Resume/CV styles vary throughout the world. Before hiring us, ask yourself these two questions:

1. Will a resume written in English (American spelling) be appropriate for your job search?
2. Will the recipient of your resume be receptive to one written in the U.S. style?

If you are uncertain whether a US/Canadian style resume is correct in your situation, contact us and we will help you determine if our service is the correct one for you.

Q. I have a broad range of abilities and want to pursue a couple different career paths. Can one resume do this for me?

A. It’s possible, depending on your background and the objectives, and provided that you have cover letters that are specifically written for each objective. But, if your multiple career objectives are in completely different areas, more than one resume will be necessary. We can help you with this.

Q. Will you be able to assist me with updates to my resume in the future?

A. Yes!

We’ve been in the resume preparation services business since 1996, and at this point, a very major part of our business is servicing our existing family of clients. Many of our clients have been with us through every step of their careers!

Please consider us to be life-long PARTNERS committed to ASSISTING and SUPPORTING YOU through every step of your career development now and in the future.

We are here for you to serve you with all your career marketing needs, keeping your resume and all the documents in your career marketing portfolio up-to-date and ready to go whenever the next opportunity arises. Charges for updates are nominal and you can read more about them here:

Q. Who will write my resume and how can I contact them?

A. Michelle has spent years vetting and putting together a team of the industry’s most deeply credentialed and accomplished resume writers to deliver our resume preparation services. Each and every one of our writers holds at least one certification in resume writing and many hold more than one. These are certifications such as Nationally Certified Resume Writer (NCRW), Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW), and Master Resume Writer (MRW). Most of the writers also have credentials that include some combination of certification and training as vocational counseling, career coaching, personal branding coaching, and interview coaching.

The backgrounds of our writers range from small business settings to Fortune 500s and everything in between. While each writer has years and years of experience in resume writing, they also have experience that includes such fields as recruiting, human resources, and counseling.

When you return your worksheet, we review it to better understand your experience and career goals, and then we assign your project to the writer whose strengths are the best match for you.

As soon as we have made this determination, we send you an email confirmation that provides you with a brief bio on the writer you will be working with, along with their direct phone number and the email address at which you can reach them. We also let you know what to expect over the coming days as the writer works on your project and the exact date on which you can expect to receive the first proof of your project.

You can expect to hear directly from your writer in the first few days. While they probably won’t have questions for you that quickly, they will want to introduce themselves and start to establish a dialogue with you. You can be as involved or not as you wish, but we really do encourage you to reach out to the writer with any questions or with information that you think may help them in developing your resume. Again, you will be provided with both a phone number and an email address, and they would be happy to hear from you and speak to you at any point in the process.

We also “subscribe” to the theory that “two heads are better than one.” Unlike any of our competitors (that we are aware of), we have developed a process that ensures your final documents are of the absolute highest quality, created using the best possible strategy, and that they incorporate all of the very latest trends and expectations in the job market. While you will be working directly with your writer, behind the scenes Michelle Dumas oversees and supervises all the projects, consulting with writers and advising on content and design strategies. This is a HUGE BENEFIT because it means that you actually have TWO of the industry’s most accomplished resume writers conferring and working together on your project.

Q. Can I work directly with Michelle Dumas?

A. Michelle herself works directly with a very select number of top-tier clients. If this interests you, you can learn more about this at
