FAQs: Résumé Writing Service

Question: How do I get started using your résumé writing service?
Answer: If you have an existing electronic résumé you can e-mail your résumé to or click here. If you only have a hard copy résumé, you can either fax it or send it directly to us. The Derbin Group will be in touch with you very soon to discuss your project.

Question: Why do you need to see my résumé before you can give me a quote?
Answer: Résumés are priced based on preparation and turnaround time. Seeing your résumé and the number and type of jobs you have held is the best way to accurately price your project. If you don't have a résumé, we will ask you some detailed questions to determine project pricing.
