New Resume Service Offers Evaluations from Actual Human Resource Professionals

This sounds like a unique service for evaluating your resume.

Santa Barbara, Calif. (PRWEB) November 3, 2005 -- It is increasingly difficult for job seekers to get their resumes into the hands of hiring managers. Most resumes submitted to professional organizations will never make it past the Human Resources department. Resume Intelligence offers a new implement for the job seeker’s toolbox: straightforward, detailed resume evaluations by Human Resources professionals.This is not a resume writing service.

With Resume Intelligence, up to three HR evaluators review a job seeker's resume and cover letter as though evaluating a candidate to fill an actual position. When the evaluation is complete, the service returns a comprehensive report including evaluators’ feedback and suggestions that can be used to make improvements."We ask our evaluators to be brutally honest with our customers. If your evaluator isn’t impressed with your resume, you will find out why. Imagine the value of asking an HR director for a detailed explanation of why he or she screened out your resume. This is the service we offer," Resume Intelligence owner Ben Chambers said.

Job seekers can sign up for an evaluation directly at and upload all relevant documents: a resume, a cover letter and a couple of job postings to show the types of positions the job seeker is interested in applying for. When an order is placed, the service matches HR evaluators to the job seeker’s unique experiences and needs. Within three to five days, a personalized report is returned to the job seeker with detailed feedback on key areas of the resume and cover letter.

"I am totally confident that making the changes my evaluator suggested will make my resume better. Unfortunately for me there are some serious errors on my resume found by your HR Pro, which doesn't speak very highly of the resume writing service I paid for," Justin Marshall of Santa Barbara, Calif. said.A standard package includes evaluations by three HR professionals. An economy package is also available, which includes an evaluation by one HR professional. The price for the service is comparable to online resume writing services.
