1. Description of Resume Writing Service.

86 Keys provides marketing writing, business writing, resume writing and editing services, including cover letter writing, thank you letter writing, follow up letter writing and LinkedIn Profile writing. All writing and editing services are non-refundable once services are retained. The intake and evaluation of your current resume and job targets may be determined either via written questionnaire, online form, email exchange, phone conversation and more. After you have received your revised resume, you may contact us (email is preferred) within 15 days of the sent date posted on the email to you should you need further revisions. We will provide a second draft to you within 7 days from the sent date on the email back from you. Additional charges billed at the rate of $50 per hour will apply if editing services are requested after this timeframe. 86 Keys is not responsible for providing service in the circumstance of a customer’s failure to upload a resume or to provide a completed questionnaire or in the case of customer providing an incorrect email address. Because our services are rendered in a digital format and cannot be physically returned, our fees are non-refundable. Normal turnaround time is 3-5 business days from the date of receipt but may be longer in certain circumstances which may include the size of each individual project. We do not guarantee a specific time for completion. Prices may vary and are subject to change depending on the scope of each individual project. Work conducted on your resume, cover letter, or other written material may be performed by one or more writers contracted by 86 Keys.
