Skill-roads.com is a resume and cover letter service, but there is much more to it when you dig a little deeper. Firstly, their services list is longer than we expected, and the pricing is different from the impression we got when we saw the homepage. For more details about the company, read our review.
Quality and Services at Skill-Roads.com
In addition to the cover letter and resume writing service, Skill-roads has plenty of packages and combined options for their customers, as well as an option to order everything – an all-inclusive job application package.
Some of their more popular combinations include: resume writing and design, resume editing and design, resume and cover letter writing, resume and LinkedIn profile; or the bigger combos such as:
- Resume writing + cover letter + LinkedIn profile
- CV writing + LinkedIn + cover letter
- All inclusive job application package
When it comes to resume design, there are specific templates to choose from. Their number is rather limited, but you can expect the service to tweak the design based on your requirements and qualifications. This makes for a very full list of services and a well-explained one, except for the largest package for which there is no detailed information on the website.
To see what the all-inclusive package includes, we continued with our research.
As for the quality, feedback from some of the visitors who ordered here is split in two sides – positive and negative.
Prices of Skill-Roads
Skill-roads.com is not a cheap resume service. An individual resume writing service costs $115.7 if ordered in three days, but if you order it in two days, the price is $128. This is the cheapest you get for resume writing, since the packages and other services are much more expensive.
For example, a resume and cover letter cost $180.7 within three days, while a package of resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile is $284.70. The all-inclusive package we were particularly interested in is $310.7 for the longer deadline and $349.7 for the shorter deadline.
This makes skills-roads.com a bit of a pricey service, but thanks to their discount, the price comes to the average range.
Discounts/ Other Features
The discount we mentioned is a 10% offer for everyone and you can find it on their front page. We did not find other features that you can choose or pay for, except for the option to choose a design template from their website. If you don’t choose one, they will choose one for you. The database of templates is a bit limited, which can be a problem if you want something more specific.
There is a customer service on this website, but it isn’t always available. Don’t let the live chat option trick you – it is often offline. Thankfully, you can leave them a message and wait for a response, and in our case, they responded within 24 hours.
We asked about the all-inclusive package in order to get more information. The most expensive package of them all combines all the services that are in the list: resume writing, cv writing, LinkedIn profile, and a cover letter. Its price is the double of most prices offered, even for the packages, which made this description a bit strange. It only differs by one item from the second longest list, which comes at a far lower rate.
The website says that there are free resume revisions, but considering that there is only a homepage to look at, we didn’t find any additional information regarding this. Still, it is nice to know that if you don’t like how they wrote your resume, you can ask for a revision.
As for delivery, there isn’t a guarantee that they’ll meet the deadline, but the company does not seem to have experienced any troubles with meeting deadlines, at least not from their customer testimonials. The two delivery options are 48 hours and three days, so this might not be the smartest choice if you need a very urgent resume help.
Other than that, skill-road.com has a decent offer thanks to the discount and somewhat of a neutral reputation on the resume market. Their guarantees are vague and basically non-existent on the website, but according to customers, they do deliver their products.
