I have used the Resume chick - and she was great. After trying to send my own resume out and getting no responses, I finally caved and used her.
I was between jobs and did not want to spend a lot of money on my resume. She did a great job for me.
People, whenever you get a resume, you always have to do some tweaking yourself, that's just the nature of the game. She gave me a great resume in a very nice format, and I was very pleased...
So much so, that, when I actually got a job writing resumes for another company - and not I'm not advertising - I would recommend her for people who were on a tight budget. Yep. And nope, I did not get any commissions or anything like that. I just simply passed her name along to people I thought could benefit and did not have the money for a personal consultation resume, etc.
So there you have it. She treated me well. Are there people who might have been dissatisfied? I suppose. Bu my experience was very positive, especially for the price.
Why people think they should get gold-plated anything for $50 is beyond me. Resumes take work to put together! $50 is very, very, very, very....to infinity and beyond cheap!
Thank you David & Tiffy for your kind words -
With regards to you Lisa Ramaci - I have checked my records for this - I received from you on July 29th 11:23pm
"Oh Karen, do you really think I did NOT check my email closely? The problem, after I looked at the header info you included, is this - you sent the documents to my gmail account, while I was writing you from my Hotmail account, and THAT is where I was looking for a reply and my resume. Since I opened the gmail account solely to get replies to my resume, it never occurred to me that you would send the documents there, I just assumed you would link to one of the emails I sent you from Hotmail.
I do sincerely apologize to you for the over-the-top email from hell I sent, but the reality is, that was a test, not what I really believe. You did not reply to three days worth of polite emails from me, which asked that you get back to me one way or the other as to whether or not you had gotten my resume info. All I needed was something short and sweet in reply, like "Got it, working on it now", and I would have been very grateful and patient. But when I received nothing from you at Hotmail, I went online and found a number of blog posts from people who said you had taken their money and then vanished. Given that, I pretty much figured that if I sent you a raving, curse-filled message that also mentioned the Better Business Bureau you would either a) ignore me, in which case my wondering if I had been scammed would have been correct, or b) finally get back to me one way or the other. Crude methods, I admit, but as I saw it, my attempts to be nice weren't working.
Given that, I must thank you for the email, cover letter and thank you letter. I only paid you for a resume, so please tell me how much I owe you for the rest of the package and I will get it to you immediately. And again, I am very sorry to unleash such an assault on you, but it was the only way I knew how to find out if you were for real or not. (And no, I certainly do not wish upon you anything even remotely like what I said. I am really not a lunatic bitch, I swear.)
BTW the extra cover letter and thank you letter was a free item to you. And all this for $50.
I believe this clears up this matter.
