We all love to get something for nothing. However, few things are truly free. Take resume critique services that promise to give you an honest appraisal of your document.

How many really do? How many provide a written-for-you-alone critique instead of using a boilerplate to pop in your name and a few random comments before emailing you their ‘opinion’ along with a sales pitch to try their services?

Free Doesn’t Always Mean Good

At ResumeEdge, we don’t do that. Because we know there’s nothing magical about resume writing. No one company can boast that only their resumes get results. Competent and professional resume writing services will employ CPRWs (Certified Professional Resume Writers) who will organize and edit your document in accordance with PARW (Professional Association of Resume Writer) standards. It’s as simple as that. Companies may have differing templates and may favor one font over another; however, that’s where their differences end. Resumes are all written in the same fashion, if industry standards are adhered to.

There’s Nothing Magical About Resume Writing

So before you fall for the ‘free’ critique sales pitch, do your homework and check out the countless free articles on the web or on our site about writing an effective resume. Be knowledgeable before you place an order with any resume writing company, and know this – no hiring manager prefers one resume writer’s style over another’s. It’s not style or formatting they’re looking for, but your core skills that will help them fill the position.
