Once we have detailed notes, work history, education, and your career aspirations we will start writing your story.

Once were done crafting your documents (typically 3-4 business days), you will receive your resume or other branding documents for your review. Once you have reviewed it please share with us your feedback and if a revision is needed we will make the changes to get your resume just the way you like it.
Once we have your approval and you're completely satisfied with the draft , we will finalize the documents and provide you a word and/or PDF copy. If you requested a LinkedIn profile update we will login and update your profile or give you the detailed document so you can update it yourself.

How do I collaborate with my resume writer?
A career strategist will schedule a call with you to ask questions about your career goals and to ask questions to capture your story. Once our resume writers complete your resume it will be sent to you for review and your strategist will reach out to you to review your resumes and make any needed changes.
How do I know if I need a resume update?
Career Operative Recommends that you always have an up to date resume handy. You never know when an opportunity may present itself. Generally you should update your resume at least once a year or any time a material change in your duties, title, or day to day responsibilities occur.
How much does a professionally written resume cost?
Like any service the price is determined by several factors. Typically the price is determined by the number of pages and the quality of the content. Career Operative uses a resume strategist or an intake form in some cases to determine your goals and key accomplishments. Our resume writers take the notes from the career strategist and write your resume to appeal to most the hiring manager, social media platforms like LInkedIn, and ATS Applicant Tracking Systems. A good range for a resume is $150 - $500 depending on the format, style, and number of pages needed to tell your story.
