She did amazing! I am so appreciative of her work and her professionalism. She worked over the weekend on mine and understood all the inner workings of my job field and did a wonderful job highlighting my skills. I had my resume and cover letter done by her and in the future if I ever need to update it, I am going to come back here.Oct 21, 2018Verified
Kathy was so professional, so prompt and just a pleasure to work with. She was able to transform my resume into exactly what I was hoping for and the turnaround time was faster than I anticipated. I absolutely recommend The Contingent Plan!Oct 11, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Flat rates, hourly pricing, and subscription pricing. The pricing is set to each client's needs and depends on the services requested.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process is usually pretty simple and it depends on the client's needs. Typically, resume services follow the timeline of: 1. Client emails their old resume and any jobs of interest. If no resume, then the client schedules a call to provide the info to us for drafting. 2. We prepare the rough first draft of the resume that includes questions in comments in the document. Standard turnaround time on the first draft is 2 - 3 business days from receiving client's info. 3. Confer with client (by phone or email) to receive edits or comments. 4. Incorporate requested edits/comments from client. 5. Send client second draft. Repeat editing process as needed to get the resume right for our client. 6. Make any further edits as requested. 100% satisfaction guaranteed!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I developed the proven method for writing resumes to beat the ATS by: 1. Analyzing the Department of Labor databases that are the foundation of most online jobboards and applicant tracking systems; 2. Applying experience of recruiters that have used multiple ATS programs and how employers frequently modify the systems; 3. Leveraging the knowledge of our experience as recruiters to focus the resume on what hiring managers really want to see; and 4. Continuing to test and improve our methods against the evolving technologies used by employers.
