Is there a place where I can find help with reviewing my Resume and Cover Letters?

Is there a place where I can find help with reviewing my Resume and Cover Letters? I understand career coaches and others who provide similar services are also working individuals with businesses. I've had two experiences with such providers and I wasn't happy with it. I can't afford another career coaching or the like services right now and with previous negative experiences, I don't want to waste my time anymore.

I wonder if there are any generators or some kind of support where I can ask if X, Y, Z are good points to include?

I hope someone can help offer resources.

Thank you!

Hi, have you checked out workitdaily.com. You do have join as a member. Once you join, you can request to have your resume and LI review. You can then stop your membership. There are things you can do as a non paying member. There’s also a plan for $5 a month you get access to education. Good luck. I understand how frustrating it is to keep investing in these services. After many disconnects, I’m making a point to ask up front. I need help with this, and this, and this.
Enhancv, TopResume, or Leet Resumes are all great options!

I was kind of bummed in terms of help with resume/cover letter with the career coach I worked with. To be fair she said that wasn’t really her speciality. I stumbled upon a copywriter who was being recommended on a Linked in comments thread, and took a leap in checking her out. She wrote my resume and a cover letter where I can just swap out one paragraph to make it specific for each job. It was about half the cost of one session with the career coach and I was so impressed with what she put together. Best money I’ve spent in a whole. If you’d like her info let me know! She offers a free call to see if it’s a good fit and ask her any questions. Hourly fee for anything after that was really reasonable too. I’m going to keep using her while I job hunt.
Hi, I can feel your frustration. I've been there too. Have you explored having your resume reviewed by peers in the role you are targeting? That's an option. I also use these other resources to optimize my resume: - https://www.jobscan.co- https://cultivatedculture.com/tools- https://resumeworded.comHappy to do a peer to peer resume with you too.

At my uni, they offered free resume reviews for students/alumni which was cool and something I definitely used. Personally, I can’t really imagine myself paying for resume reviews.
