Do You Need A Resume Writer

Hiring a resume writer, truthfully, just isn’t for everyone.

We’ve worked with hundreds of candidates over the past 10 years, and while we love what we do, there’ve been many instances where we’ve turned away potential clients.


Our service wasn’t a right fit for them. 

You see, everyone’s job hunting situation is different. 

Some are looking for guidance with their career direction. Others need help improving their interview skills.

If you fall into either of the above categories, we’d recommend seeking advice from professional career coaches or counselors.

But if you think you need help specifically with your job application documents, then engaging a professional resume writer might be right for you.

ResumeWriter Tip: Thinking about leaving your job? Applying for roles soon? Or are you in the midst of job applications? No matter where you are in your job search journey, it doesn’t hurt to get a qualified second opinion on your CV. Get in touch with us for a complimentary CV analysis session.

Do you need a resume writer?

Working with a professional resume writer might be useful if you are:

Not confident about your resume

Not Confident About Your Resume 1024x683

You’ve read your share of resume writing guides, carefully examined tons of great resume examples, and agonised for hours over your CV.

But something’s eating away at you. 

Your resume still doesn’t look quite right.

Is it attention-grabbing enough? Are there crucial elements it might be missing? Is it too long and unnecessarily detailed?

Does it capture exactly what the hiring manager is looking for, and show that you’re THE obvious choice for this role? 

If you’ve tried your best to perfect your CV but are still plagued by doubts, consider engaging an experienced professional to craft your resume for you.

Being on both sides of the market (as licensed recruiters and professional CV writers) for over 10 years now, we’re completely attuned to Hong Kong’s employment landscape.

We’ve worked with candidates just like you – from young professionals trying to break into hot new fields, to career switchers and senior executives gunning for their next big move – and know how to write CVs that consistently land them more interviews.

ResumeWriter Tip: We do our best to match you with a CV writer specialised in your industry, and we don’t take on cases that we can’t deliver on. If we accept your case, it’s because we’re confident we will add value to your resume. That’s our promise to you.

Struggling to get interview callbacks

Not Getting Interview Callbacks  1024x683

Haven’t received interview call ups, despite sending out tens of applications? 

It’s not you. It’s your resume.

And you’re not alone in your struggles.

Over the years, hundreds of customers have come to us with the exact same problem, and we’ve taken great pride in helping them turn their situation around

We’ve seen candidates go from zero callbacks in months, to scoring multiple interviews within weeks of sending out their new CVs.

Take Patrick and Zeng for example:

I recently worked with Victor on my resume. He has done an outstanding job throughout the process. We started with a meeting to understand my experience, skills and what roles I am looking at. He has helped me identify significant/relevant achievements. Vic has provided a first draft within a few days and we needed only a few iterations with minor changes . He was always available via texts or calls and has a great way of phrasing things professionally. I will definitely work with him again if I need an update in the future. The response rate to my applications has increased by 4 times and I made it into multiple last rounds so far.

This is my very first time to work with ResumeWriter. I am amazed the service they provided to personalised the resume for me. It is a very rewarding experience to work with the writer and she has been a great help to me. She is professional and is always there for me when I needed help.I cannot be more than thankful enough for ResumeWriter. The extremely high quality CV I have gotten in the end is worth every cent.I highly recommended people to take up this service and help from ResumeWriter. Update: I have landed my dream job in less than 1 month and I cannot be happier for all the help ResumeWriter have given me. I really hope this review can reach out to those that needed help for their resume. The writing for the resume is impactful.

Pressed for time / Don’t know where to begin

Pressed For Time 1024x683

You know your CV’s sorely in need of an update; it might be years since you last applied for a job. 

Over the past decade or so, you’ve taken on multiple new positions with increasing responsibility. 

Perhaps even taken on additional work scopes or transitioned into new roles.

How do you even begin condensing your long, diverse career history into a tidy, impactful resume?

You could try sparing an hour or two from your busy schedule to update your resume on your own, but in truth, it takes much longer than that to write a winning resume.

We’ve helped hundreds of jobseekers craft and recraft their CVs, so take it from us – resume writing is a skill in itself, finely honed through practice and time.

Our writers undergo intensive training and mentorship to learn to write a high quality resume that meets our exacting standards.

And by the end of it, they’re able to draw out each client’s unique career narrative, identify the critical gaps in their CVs, and highlight the key experiences and achievements that will give them an edge over other applicants.

In short, they’re able to craft job-winning resumes.

Great job opportunities don’t come around often.

So if you can’t dedicate the time and effort to work on your CV, don’t wing it.

Roles like these are extremely in-demand and ridiculously competitive.
