Welcome to Ghost Resumes! I'm Carey, the head writer and owner of the company. As a Certified Professional Resume Writer, I have been writing professional resumes for over 20 years - some projects as a freelance writer and as a contractor for a top-tier global resume writing service. I've written resumes for C-level executives, retail managers, administrators, program managers, finance and accounting executives, systems engineers, PhDs, marketing and communications professionals, sales and business development managers, new graduates, criminal justice analysts, military veterans, people looking to move into completely new functional areas, people who have been out of the workforce, and many more.
I worked for an executive recruiting firm and an administrative staffing agency for a number of years and I understand what recruiters are looking for in a resume.
I earned a Master of Arts in Communication from Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor of Science in Communication from Arizona State University. And I am certified by the Professional Association of Resume Writers.
We have tried to make this process as easy as possible. It is really as simple as filling out a short form, uploading your current resume and selecting your resume package from a drop down pricing menu. We'll send you a confirmation email and we'll get started on your project right away. And you can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have throughout the process.
Sometimes you don't need a new resume
Every once in a while a client comes along whose resume is already well-written. Most other resume services will take your money and reformat your resume using your own words. If you want a reformatted resume with no new content, this isn't the company for you. We're not graphic artists, we're wordsmiths. If you send us a resume that is in really good condition, we'll tell you and we'll give you back your money.
Our ultimate goal is to help you get in the door for a job interview. Sometimes you don't need a new resume at all.
Most people have a resume that seems like a perfectly good document to use in a job search. What many people don't know is that a number of recruiters use applicant tracking software to pinpoint skills using keywords. We understand how to build keywords into any type of resume. We also know how to highlight achievements and use terminology to show the value you've been bringing to your current and past positions.
Many people don't realize their resume is task-based - it's like a list of all the duties they've performed for various jobs. While we do list some of those duties to show employers that you understand the job, we try to focus on what you can offer. It's hard to brag about yourself, so let us do it for you!
A resume is a unique and personal document, so make yours stand out and get the attention you deserve from recruiters.
