Drawing on a knack for clear, concise communication, the Los Angeles-based writers at CareerPlex showcase the talents, values, and achievements of job-hunters of all levels in professional résumés and cover letters, giving customers an edge with extra career services. After discussing their needs with a representative, clients upload existing résumés to CareerPlex’s website. The writing process, which lasts 24–72 hours, begins with a 20- to 50-minute interview in person, over the phone, or via astral projection. Writers’ simple questions reveal clients’ aspirations, experience, and achievements, such as the ability to climb a corporate ladder blindfolded. Clients review first drafts of their documents in PDF format before a 20- to 50-minute follow-up consultation, in which writers make revisions and set a delivery date for finished products. Throughout the process, clients can contact career advisors for advice and receive a response within 45–60 minutes.
CareerPlex’s career tools and extras boost professional prospects with services such as two years of résumé updating, alternate versions of résumés, or advice from experienced career advisors, who may impart secrets to landing better jobs or beating rats at footraces.
