FAQ
What’s the purpose of a resume?
Why do I need a professional resume?

Most employers form an opinion of you within the first ten seconds of reading through your resume. A resume that’s easy to read and scan stands a much better chance of being noticed than a text-heavy, cumbersome laundry list of experience. Our skilled resume writers will highlight your key skills and talents and underscore the benefits you’ve brought to your former employers.

How can a cover letter enhance my job search?

While the resume provides a snapshot of your career and skills, a carefully crafted cover letter introduces you to the employer. Hitting on the highlights of your career, the cover letter shows your next employer the benefits of hiring you in detail. Cover letters should include the position you’re applying for, how your background has enhanced your employer’s business, and what those skills can mean for your next employer.

How long will it take to get my resume?

Our goal is to give you exceptional quality and service. Within three to four business days after we receive your order, you will receive your new resume.

Should I have more than one version of my resume?

Ideally, yes. In some cases, you may want to target unrelated industries. That may require another resume. However, a professional resume targeted to one industry segment can help you pinpoint your ideal job more exactly, which may result in a shorter job search and fewer resumes needing to be sent.

What’s the process like?

Once you purchase your Shark Resume, you will be connected with our resume coordinator. Our coordinator will work with you to understand your current job situation, your intended market, and your long-term goals. We ask you questions specifically designed to give us a picture of your career progression, your skills, and your accomplishments. From there, one of our certified resume writers will put together a resume that best showcases your talents. You will work with the writer and coordinator to refine your resume so that it’s the best representation of you and your most important skills.

Can I make changes?

Absolutely! We want you to give us as much input as you can. It helps us understand better your goals and allows us to give you a resume you’re proud to circulate.

How many revisions do I get?

We like to provide clients with three rounds of revisions. However, we want you to be satisfied. We will work with you to ensure you’re pleased with the results and the presentation of your information.

Can I speak with you before we start?

Yes! We encourage clients to contact us so that we can answer any questions directly. Just let us know you would like a phone consultation and we’ll be happy to arrange one.

What about my privacy? I don’t want my current employer to know I’m searching for another job.

With Shark Resumes, your privacy is guaranteed. We don’t share your resume or your contact information with anyone outside our company. That means no spam and no chance your current employer will learn of your search through us.

Is my payment secure?

Absolutely. We protect your payment information and guarantee confidentiality.

I was told my resume should be a certain length. Is that true?

There is no hard-and-fast rule. Resume length is dependent on a number of factors, including length of career, amount of details in each position, and the amount of education, training, or other skills you have. Many resumes fall within two pages, but some job seekers require more space. The goal is to deliver a resume that is just long enough to tell your story without overwhelming your next employer.

Why aren’t you including my references on my resume?

Resumes have change dramatically over the years. What was once considered standard – including references or mention of references – is no longer practiced. The main reason is to protect your references from endless calls or protect their privacy during your job search. Employers know that if they ask for references, you will provide them. Resumes should dedicate space to showing your attributes, not mentioning the obvious.

I think my current resume looks pretty good. Can you just enhance my existing resume?

Yes! We offer a resume refresh service, which will give you a more focused approach to what you have already.

What are your business hours?

We are available by email and phone from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time.

Can you mail me my resume?

We can, but we recommend email for a few reasons. It will allow you to suggest changes within the document, and it will allow us to deliver your resume to you quickly.

Do you have rush services?

Yes. If you need your resume within 24 hours, we can complete the project for an additional $50 fee.

I don't have a resume. How do we start?

Send us an email with your inquiry. We work with you to gather the necessary information. We will then build your resume from scratch.
