We’ve seen how the recruiting process works on the inside, and exactly how resumes are chosen for interviews.

We’ve edited – not reviewed, but actually edited – resumes for thousands of consulting job seekers every year – many of whom afterwards received not only interviews, but offers from the best consulting companies like McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Accenture, Deloitte, and much more.

What sets a McKinsey resume apart? What does a consulting resume really look like? There are specific criteria top firms look for, and with the competition stiff, don’t expect your resume to be scanned for more than 15 seconds. We’ve been transforming resumes and cover letters for almost 10 years into documents actual consultants want to read!

We are here to help – we’ve written extensively on the consulting application process, and how to navigate it. Click below for dozens of free articles containing our best tips, tricks, and strategies.

The typical editing process

1Use the templates we provide to get started creating one complete resume and/or cover letter that has the style to stand out. Add your comments to us inside the document. Your editing window (14 days standard, 2 days expedited) starts when you send us your documents.
2We conduct the first round of edits to correct structural problems (both style and content) and get you 80% of the way there. We leave you extensive comments and placeholders where you need to add or adjust information. After this, you’ll have a lot of homework to add additional information to your story.
3For the second edit, we use a scalpel to do a final word-by-word edit, looking in detail at each experience and activity, perfecting punctuation and finalizing your documents.
4By now, your resume should be 99% of what we want it to be. But we’ll continue providing unlimited advice via email until your 14 day period is up in case you have additional questions.

We can accommodate a shorter turnaround if needed. Expedited 48-hour turnaround, even over the weekend, costs an extra $100. The extra fee is only charged once, even if you order both the resume and cover letter services.
