Working With Us

How does this work?


Once you select which services you’d like to purchase, we send an invoice directly to you through PayPal. Upon receipt of payment, we send over a “Getting Started” email that will ask you to share job postings of interest, any previous application documents used, and to schedule a time for your interview call or questionnaire, depending on your selected package. Once we complete your interview call or questionnaire, we will get you the first revisions of your resume and general cover letter (if applicable) in 5-7 business days. Once you review and approve these documents, we will complete the rest of your services on your timeline.




What is an interview call?


The interview call is a critical component to our collaborative success. We ask in-depth questions ranging from your proudest work accomplishment to your workstyles so we can best represent you in your job application documents. This is an informal call, and we actually prefer you to be as unpolished and candid as possible so we can work the magic and paint your own words in the strongest light. The interview call is typically 30 minutes.




How long does it take?


Career Productions guarantees a 5-7 business day turn-around for the first revisions of documents upon the date of your interview call or questionnaire. Expedited services are an additional service add-on to receive your first revisions within 3-5 business days. After receiving first revisions, we respect our clients schedules and adapt to their pace ensuring services are completed on their timeline. Services are completed in two parts, we send over the resume and general cover letter to get your feedback and full approval before updating your LinkedIn profile and completing your reference page and specific cover letter, depending on your selected package. We value your time and respond to all communications promptly, never exceeding 2 business days.




What can I expect from Career Productions?
