We’ve found that our clients have the most success when their cover letters are tailored as closely as possible for a particular role, to make sure that we’re highlighting the most impressive and applicable skills and accomplishments. Prior to creating the cover letter, we’ll ask you to send one over or two job postings to help us tailor the letter appropriately. Each cover letter includes up to two rounds of changes. Once it’s been approved, we’ll create a template that you can use to easily tailor it towards similar roles.
We have three pricing tiers based on your field and level of experience. Within each of these tiers, we offer several career packages based on the services that you'd like. Visit our pricing page for a detailed description of our offerings.
We do request payments for packages prior to beginning work. All payments can be submitted directly through our website by selecting your desired package from the appropriate pricing tier. If you’re not sure which package is right for you, get an instant quote here.

Yes! In a competitive job market, candidates need to go the extra mile to make sure that their applications stand out. Did you know that most job postings receive hundreds of applicants? Unless an application is getting submitted through a personal connection, it's best to include a personalized cover letter with each application.
Many RS Works subscriptions include access to a robust library of hundreds of industry-specific cover letters, with examples of how to quickly personalize them.
Each person who creates a resume using RS Works will be asked targeted questions based on past experience and career goals. The process can take as little as 15 minutes! The result is a fully personalized, polished professional resume.
For job-seekers very little or no work experience, it’s important to emphasize educational programs, certifications, personal projects and volunteer work. For users who have had less than two jobs, the RS Works platform will automatically place volunteer work under the Professional Experience section.

We usually recommend a one-page resume for those who have less than 10 years of experience, or less than four jobs. For those with more extensive work histories, it’s perfectly OK for a resume to span up to two pages. The resumes created by RS Works often span more than one page, but you can easily trim the content down to one page if you prefer.
RS Works subscriptions are available to career counselors, university career centers, and non-profit workforce development organizations. We offer subscriptions for professionals, teams, and organizations. Reach out to us for your personalized package.
We'll be making the platform available to individual job-seekers in the Spring of 2023. Click here to be notified when we roll it out.
