    I honestly could not believe the high quality of work I received for $39.00. I was getting so frustrated trying to find an affordable resume service, because who can spend hundreds of dollars on a resume while they are looking for a job? I really thought this was too good to be true. August contacted me immediately after receiving my payment, asked all the right questions, and less than a week later, I had a beautifully designed resume. I had my resume up on many sites and rarely was contacted. After replacing my resume with the one August made-over for me, I had 5 requests from different companies wanting to interview me, within 3 hours! This service is absolutely, 100% the best quality resume service you will find at an affordable price! I would gladly recommend this service to anyone!

    August did me a huge favor in transforming my college resume into a professional career resume! Fresh out of college and was looking to begin my career in HR. Without any experience directly in that field, August gave me advise on where I should begin my career. She informed me that, hey, maybe you should consider other spectrums of HR. She suggested something lighter, to start off my career and gain experience. With the help of August redirecting my focus on my resume, I began applying to new career options. I received endless opportunities and LANDED MY FIRST JOB out of college, as a recruiter! I am very excited t begin my new journey as a recruiter! So hey if any RNs or LVNs are interested in top opportunities, I am your girl! Thank you August!

    Have no fear, August is here to save your resume! I discovered August’s services through LinkedIn and browsing Quick and Affordable resume writer’s website. She provides superb service and outstanding clarity in her communication emails. She revived my slowly dieing resume and brought it back to life. I am so pleased with my resume and literally cannot stop smiling everytime I think about it. In my old resume I was blinded and stuck at what terms to use and how to exude my skills. With August’s help I have received a boost in confidence and self worth.

    August responded promptly to my resume request, she did a great job overhauling my resume, similar priced services cost five times as much, are slower and in my opinion are lower quality. I am very happy with her services, fast friendly and cheap, you can’t beat it.

  • In a nutshell, this is what I will do to improve your resume:

    • Make your resume more ATS friendly
    • Create a new profile / summary with the right key words.
    • Make you more appealing to a hiring manager on paper.
    • Enhance your resume’s layout (chronological, attractive).
    • Edit your resume’s grammar, phrasing and sentences.
    • Eliminate inconsistencies and redundancies.
    • Correct common resume blunders.

    I make the process easy and the cost very manageable because I know what to do.

    The only drawback is if your resume does not include achievements, I cannot include them. I can only greatly improve what you provide.

    If your resume is missing qualifiable and quantifiable achievements, I recommend that you invest in working closely with a resume writer. Yes, you will pay more and will need to complete a questionnaire or engage in a consultative info-gathering phone call to tell them what you’ve done in your career, including accomplishments, but it will be worth the effort and expense.

    That being said, if your resume does include accomplishments, even if in a lackluster way, I can make them shine.  Tip: show what you did that made a difference in the workplace and include metrics so the reader can measure your performance. If confidential, use percentages vs. actual numbers.

    The results I achieve after I create a new branded profile and improve the overall organization and visual layout of the resume makes a tremendous difference.

    Note that I do not do graphic resumes. Those formats have such minimal content, which I feel limits the presentation of a job seeker’s background.   

    Combined with content changes, such as better word choices and phrasing, the above phases take the resume to the next level.

    However, before I do the heavy lifting, I first correct many common blunders and inconsistencies that only a trained resume writer and hiring managers can see. This phase of the process is worth my fee alone!   

    • I save time (for me) and money (for you) by eliminating worksheets and phone calls. I know what needs to be done based on years of experience. 
    • My pricing might make QNA Resumes seem like a “cheap resume service,” but make no mistake — QNA Resumes is hands down one of the best affordable services in the nation.
    • I am certified with extensive resume writing experience and have been online since 2004 with a record of success!
    • I have a strong LinkedIn network of recruiters and HR professionals in the careers industry and many great Client Recommendations.
  • You are entitled to a 100% refund if you can illustrate that I did not do as promised. I put several hours into reworking your resume. I care about quality and always want to grow our business with satisfied customers, referrals, and LinkedIn Recommendations.

  • I am the principle here at QNA Resumes. As a pro resume writer with decades of experience writing high-level resumes, I have been helping clients from all occupations and career levels land interviews during busy job search periods of the year, economic recessions, and hiring freezes. 

    The job market is saturated and everything is so expensive these days. I know we all want to pay less for quality. Heck, I sure do!  That is why I started Quick & Affordable Resumes (QNA Resumes) in 2004.

    I crafted a unique business model that parlays my vast skills, knowledge and talent writing resumes in order to offer a resume improvement service that eliminates the need to asking dozens of questions.

    That is why I am thrilled you are here! I have the skills you are looking for in an exception resume writer at a competitive price for what I offer — the ability to transform your resume from lackluster to WOW! All you need to do is place your order, upload your resume, and give me one week. Can it get any easier?
