If you would like to have your LinkedIn profile reviewed instead of your resume, include a link to it when you submit the resume-upload form, and
Glad you asked.
Most of those free reviews are automated; your resume is simply run through a program that spits out a scripted, generic assessment. Try submitting a few different resumes to those services and watch as the resulting “reviews” are 95% identical.
By contrast, the review you get from Polished is a truly personalized, human experience.
Your reviewer sits down with the background information you provide and verbally walks you through her advice for improving the resume. If you’ve provided a link to a job you’re targeting, he incorporates that as well.
The entire review is recorded on video, so you can even notice visual cues that a written review wouldn’t capture.
It’s like being a fly on the wall of a hiring manager’s office as they look at your resume.
This is a great strategy to get a valuable cross section of perspectives on your resume.
Since you will likely apply to more than one job, multiple hiring managers -- each with their own perspective -- will look at your resume.
So getting multiple perspectives up front using Polished is a great way to make it the strongest document it can be before you start applying to jobs.
This depends on the reviewer, but most review delivery times fall between 24 and 72 hours.
Each reviewer displays her delivery time on her profile, so be sure to note that before selecting a reviewer.
The reviewer records their review of your resume on their own, as a monologue.
That video recording is then sent to you to watch and rewatch as many times as you like.
Each reviewer records herself by video as she reviews your resume, so the final product delivered to you is a video. You will receive a link to the video by email once the review is complete.
Each reviewer's profile includes examples of their previous reviews so you can see exactly what to expect.
In short: 30-day money back guarantee, no questions asked.
