ResumesPlanet is a Cyprus-based resume writing company with no signs of specialization for the UK market. It’s obvious that their services were elaborated primarily for US customers (Military, Federal Levels). They just added random prices in pounds and created a fake review site (topcvwritersuk.com) to direct people to their site.
It was easy to find complaints and bad ResumesPlanet reviews from UK customers on 3rd-party platforms:
That’s why we strongly recommend you avoid using this service and try one of the alternatives:
Resumes Planet creates custom resumes, CVs, and cover letters, as well as providing clients with access to job databases. Prices are reasonable, and package deals provide further savings. They also guarantee that if you use the resume they’ve produced for you, you’ll get an interview and that you’ll be delighted with the results.
We’ve noticed that a number of people have been dissatisfied with the quality of their resumes from ResumesPlanet after our last rating. This is quite upsetting because the site has so much potential. Other customers, on the other hand, are quite delighted with their resume, thus Resumes Planet may need to ensure that all of its customers receive a more satisfactory service.
Thankfully, the site gives a guarantee if you aren’t wholly satisfied, however, the details of this guarantee aren’t readily evident. They do state, however, that you will be interviewed within a month and that your use of their services would be kept private. If you do not receive an interview offer within 30 days, they will revise your resume for free.
They also write LinkedIn profiles, CVs, cover letters, and thank you letters in addition to resumes. If you’ve done the legwork on your own resume, you may just ask their authors to revise it or alter the layout, which is usually less expensive than having a resume prepared from scratch.
When asked “Where can I view samples of your resume?” in the FAQ, they replied, “The samples are available to view here,” but there was no link and no samples could be found. It’s odd, and it doesn’t inspire much confidence. If you look around a little, you’ll find that samples are available at the bottom of the homepage. The samples weren’t very impressive; while they were well-written, they felt cluttered and weren’t always effective at showing your finest qualities and experiences.
If you need a resume right away, the site can provide one within 24 hours after accepting your case. This is swift, but not as quick as we’ve seen in the past. They take 5 days on average, but you can pay a little extra to have your resume sooner. If you purchase cover letters and thank you letters as part of a package, you will receive a discount.
We find it difficult to recommend Resumes Planet because of the site’s minor faults, the relatively poor samples, and the numerous client complaints. They may be a reasonable option if you’re in a hurry and don’t want to spend too much, but in this crowded market, there are other solutions that are risk-free.
