I did and I’m very happy with the result. I used thumbtack.com to get quotes. I wouldn’t pay some of the $400 services though

I did Monster and it sucked. They put a bunch of lies on my resume and when I called them out for it they just changed the resume format but kept the content the same. Waste of $$$$$

Resume writing services can be worth it. I’ve used them twice and they both paid off. Monster sucks unless you’re early career. Gotthejob.com is seriously worth it. They take a long time and are expensive but I made the cost back in the pay raise in one paycheck post tax.

They are useless in my opinion. Think of a career resume writer writing resume for an MBA with no direct on what you actually do, what your value prop is, etc. google harvard or tuck resume guide and use that to recraft your resume for better results. Use the money for a nice dinner for a job well done
