FAQs on Resume Writing and CV Services

Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs): Resume Valley’s Resume Writing and CV Services
Anyone can make his/her own resume or curriculum vitae (CV), but not everyone can do it well.

While even the best writers need the help of an editor, job applicants, too, need the services of a professional resume/CV writer. Did you know it takes just around 15-30 seconds for an employer to read your application and decide if he/she should invite you for an interview or not? So, it is important that you craft your resume in the most effective way possible.

Resume Valley writers are skillful in doing just that. They are adept at showing your core skills and accomplishments and at creating a self-marketing tool in a professional way. We balance format and content in each project we create. Further, we make sure our writing service makes you confident enough to send your application to your future employer.

Though often used interchangeably, a resume and a CV differ in length, scope, and purpose.

A resume is a one-page document that aims to draw the employers’ attention and making you stand out from other job seekers. Its objective is to display your experience and skills in a snap and match them to a job or career.

A curriculum vitae (CV), on the contrary, is longer than a resume and is often two or more pages long. Unlike a resume, a CV is more complete and more focused on stressing your whole professional career. In fact, it is chronological and not customized per job type.

To choose which one to send to recruiters, review the application instructions they gave. Likewise, you may get in touch with any of our customer service reps to help you tell the right tool to submit.

While our team aims for brevity, we write resumes in an easy-to-read approach. We present key strengths and qualifications using phrases that describe your education, work history, skills, training, affiliations, and awards in full. In the same way, we do not write resumes in full sentences or in full paragraphs. This element of brevity rests on the fact that recruiters spend little time to read a resume; thus, we strive to keep your information short but substantial.
After approving the final draft, we will send your resume/CV in two file formats—MS Word (.doc) and PDF (You need Adobe Reader to open this format). You may, however, request to have it in ASCII text (electronic version). If you wish to post your resume/CV online, we can send you the copy in HTML format, too. With whatever file format you need, Resume Valley can give it to you.
Pronounced “askee”, it is the acronym for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. In the same way, it is an electronic resume/CV, plain text format, in a common text language any computer and software can read. Due to its universal quality, it is useful for keying resume/CV details on online forms and for pasting resumes/CVs onto the body of an e-mail.
It is alright to go back 10 years when you are outlining your professional history. For details that exceed 10 years, it is best that you restrict them to posts held, company names, and inclusive years. As we know, such information may no longer be relevant now. For example, computer programs and equipment 10 years ago are no longer useful today. If you want to show depth, Resume Valley can do it for you.
While other companies sell their clients’ resumes/CVs to job and resume banks, we, at Resume Valley, can assure you your information is safe and confidential. It is our way of showing you how we value your trust.
No, because we only do business with clients by way of e-mail and phone call.
Yes, Resume Valley has a career change resume package that can help you match your skills and experience with a new industry. Our writers have written career-change resumes that yielded rewarding jobs. Yet, if you are applying for a similar job under a different industry, we can change your copy, too. For example, if you are an insurance executive applying for a pharmaceutical firm as an executive, our writer can highlight your management skills.
You can place your qualifications in the background and objective sections of your resume. But this may be impossible to make if your career objectives are in varied fields.
We do not put phrases such as “references available upon request.” Employers know you will give references upon request. List them on a separate sheet and hand them only when the recruiter asks for them.
First, list the current company name followed by its former name. For example: DEF Corporation (formerly ABC, Inc.). With this, you can show the company transition and imply that you are not a job hopper.
We bring the best service to our clients because we value customer satisfaction so much. Our team welcomes your suggestions for us to improve it more. We accept requests for revision within the prescribed period of six months from the date of your sign-up.
First, choose a writing product (civilian resume, curriculum vitae (CV), and LinkedIn profile ) you would like to have. Then, sign up on our secure page to place your order. We will send you a questionnaire, with an order receipt, as soon as we receive your request.

You can fill in the questionnaire and/or send your own resume draft. Send either or both document(s) to us through fax or e-mail. If you have any questions on our services, you can contact us via phone and/or e-mail.
