Used one and it was 100% not worth it. If you're a consultant, and especially if you've done bschool, you already know how to write a good resume.

If I found you couldn’t write your own resume for a consulting role I’d wonder if you could write any deliverables.

Write your own resume. Get your friends, peers and/or mentors to review it. It’ll be a good exercise for you.

They do more than just write. The good ones will spend time figuring what you want to head to, and build a compelling story. Their distance and objective view helps

My friend at EY spent $1000. Found that kinda crazy, but he said they were great ? Fuck that

From my limited experience, $700 sounds high.

I used a resume writer a few years back and their work made a huge difference. Recommend seeking one out if you have difficult to translate experience or hate talking about yourself.

However, shop around for a better price.

Is this person trying to write you an autobiography

I used one that I credit with getting me past phone screens at 3 or more companies. Ended up at D last year. Not saying I couldn't have got through without but worth the $250 or so it cost (inc LinkedIn refresh)

I looked into because I had never really had to write one before. I was able to find a similar service for about $375.

Alternatively Pwc, I know how to focus on what drives value and leverage resources deliver the highest quality output.

I can format a slide but often let the graphics folk do it focus on other higher value add tasks

Agree. I’m an MD and write/review deliverables all day. This is for executive level exit ops, and wanted a fresh perspective. I often use offshore graphics and professional writers for copy edit of deliverables for the same reason.

A good resume writer will basically get you an interview. See how good their interview rate is before you pay.

D1 how did you use? Looking for a reference... under $300

Check LinkedInpros. So far the highest price I have seen is $450

I spent $1500, based on advice from a BCG partner and the result is garbage. I mean wtf

Following onto A1, the direction of the resume writer was directly contrary to what I learned in b-school. I was shocked

Do you think the recruiter is presenting a lot of candidates? What will they be looking for in my interview? Thanks in advance!
