Kim Isaacs/Monster Contributing Writer


You’ve decided you need a second opinion on your resume, but where should you turn? We’ve gathered the top eight resources for resume critiques, as well as the pros and cons of each, to help you find the best reviewer for your needs.

Professional Resume Writers

Resume writers can provide excellent advice on how to improve your resume, says Murray Mann, principal of Global Career Strategies Group in Chicago and coauthor of The Complete Job Search Guide for Latinos.

Pros: “Resume writers know what employers want to see in a resume,” Mann says. “They are usually up-to-date on the latest trends and know the ”">keywords needed to maximize a resume’s exposure.”

Cons: The most comprehensive critiques are normally fee-based. Many firms offer free critiques, but they can be general in scope. “Remember, free critiques are often geared to sell the writer’s services,” advises Mann.

How to Find One: Good places to check are the National Resume Writers’ Association and the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches.
