Step two: Wait while the magic happens. It takes up to 48 hours for TopResume to review your resume and provide personalized and actionable feedback.
Step three: View your results. TopResume will send you an email with your feedback, showing you what you’re doing right, and what you could improve upon to achieve your best resume. Feedback topics include style and organization, writing and mechanics, and Applicant Tracking System (ATS) analysis. Among the questions your review will answer:
- Does the format of your resume effectively show the impact of your achievements?
- Do you have consistent grammatical tense, tone, and punctuations?
- Will an ATS mark you as a best fit for the jobs you’re targeting?
