Raise Your Rates: Findings of Brief Resume Pricing Survey

By Laura DeCarlo – CDI President


The findings of the brief survey were extremely interesting, and showed that based on the sampling, many resumes writers are undervaluing their service and under-pricing their skill. Most interesting of all is that the low end prices tended to include tons of benefits such as prints, CD, ASCII conversions, and frequently even a cover letter for as low as $175 total (ouch – too low) while the higher priced most often sent the final by email and included nothing extra besides the resume for $450-1500.

Granted, these findings are based on only 15 responses from professional resume writers, but they are an interesting place to start to get an idea of how you fair. Check below for a link to a recent and more comprehensive pricing survey.
