What is my "Career Level"?

We base our resume writing fees on a number of factors, including your career level. For example, a resume for an executive with over 30 years of experience is more complex and will take longer to prepare than a resume for a new graduate; therefore, the fees will be higher for the executive resume. 

The information below represents general guidelines only.
