Resume Rework for entry through executive-level professionals. Rework is a discounted service exclusively for returning JobStars customers to update a previously written Resume. Welcome back! We’ll revisit your Resume by adding your newest jobs as well as tweaking the focus and/or updating the layout. The end result is an ATS-friendly and visually appealing document that accurately reflects your current value proposition as a job seeker. Use the dropdowns below the FAQs to add a rework of your Cover Letter and/or LinkedIn Optimization.

Frequently Asked Questions

Resume Rework begins with an online introductory questionnaire followed by an intake phone call with Doug Levin to discuss things before first draft redevelopment.

After completion of the intake process, your reworked first drafts are uploaded into the client portal within 5 business days. You may request 30 days of draft revisions to ensure your full satisfaction. Final documents are delivered in MS Word and PDF.

Yes, if you’ve previously worked with JobStars on the development of your Resume and you need help retooling it with recently held jobs and/or new messaging around your value proposition, industry specializations, etc.

However, if you’re new to JobStars and you’ve never worked with us before – please visit the Resume Writing homepage for an overview on our resume services.

Unlimited Revisions allow for edits, revisions, and questions for a period of 30-days after receiving your first drafts.

The process for making revisions typically involves downloading the document in MS Word and using track changes / comments to make markups, then uploading your revised draft into the secure and confidential client portal. Although written revisions tend to be most productive, phone call requests are happily accommodated too.

We aim to provide timely and thorough responses. Please allow up to three business days turnaround time for each set of draft revisions.

Generally speaking, a narrowly targeted Resume performs best. Knowing your desired job title, industry, and seniority level is helpful for narrowing your focus.

If your focus isn’t crystal clear, that’s okay. We’ll assess your situation during the intake process and make recommendations on how to approach things.

Sometimes building one ‘master version’ that satisfies multiple targets is best. Other times, multiple divergent targets can’t be reconciled.

We offer 2nd Focus Resume when a second version is called for.

Resume Rework includes a matching Cover Letter (optional) in the same layout as your reworked Resume to ensure you’re fully equipped for the job search.

Additionally, this service includes full access to our entire library of exercises, guides, and worksheets which are free for you to download within the client portal.

First drafts are normally delivered within five business days. Adding rush service means first drafts are delivered within two business days. We also respond to all draft revisions within one business day (normally three business days).

Please bear in mind, these timelines require your participation in completing the client intake process (online introductory questionnaire and telephone consultation).

**Rush timeline applies to your Resume and Cover Letter only. We currently do not do rush for LinkedIn Optimization.

LinkedIn Optimization is a top-to-bottom service for building the strongest possible profile using all the components of your LinkedIn profile. This includes developing an opening summary, individual job descriptions, long-form projects, and more.

LinkedIn is a widely used platform among hiring managers and recruiters. You’ll want a strong LinkedIn profile that works in tandem with your Resume and accurately communicates your level of seniority and industry specialization.

We create bespoke content for your LinkedIn™ profile (DIY) on a MS Word document. Unlimited revisions are included for 30-days to ensure your complete satisfaction with your LinkedIn profile content before it goes live.

For an additional charge, we offer a service for performing the work of optimizing your LinkedIn™ profile (PRO) on your behalf. Please read the following FAQ for a closer look at the differences between DIY & PRO for LinkedIn.

Do it Yourself (DIY)

DIY means doing the LinkedIn profile updates yourself.

We create all the content for your new LinkedIn™ profile on a helpful DIY worksheet. Simply copy and paste the professionally written content from the DIY worksheet onto your profile in the appropriate categories. Great option if you’re confident in your ability to optimize your LinkedIn profile without professional assistance.

Professional (PRO)

PRO means we do the LinkedIn profile updates for you.

In addition to preparing the content for your profile, we perform the work of optimizing your LinkedIn™ profile. This process requires providing a temporary password and granting access to your profile account. Great option if you’re unfamiliar with the inner-workings of how to properly optimize your LinkedIn profile.

Yes, the PRO option saves you time and ensures top quality.

Carefully analyzing and updating each component of your LinkedIn profile requires time, effort, and expertise to ensure maximum consistency and optimal display.

You can totally do it yourself (DIY) too! We prepare all the content for your profile on a helpful worksheet. Familiarity navigating LinkedIn, technical savvy, and spare time are helpful when doing it yourself.

Rework ranges from $150 to $650 (depending on multiple factors). Please make your selections from the dropdowns below the FAQs to see exact pricing.

Rates vary based on seniority level. This is a fairly good indicator for how time consuming and complex a project typically is. Please select the level that most appropriately describes your experience and career profile.
