Preferred Resumes History

Preferred Resumes' history as a job site dates back to 2000 when BCG Attorney Search was launched as a legal recruiting firm. Prior to this time, Preferred Resumes' founder, Harrison Barnes, had been a law professor while also practicing law and had frequently revised his students' resumes. Given the power of a good resume to get students and attorneys jobs, Harrison became very committed to work on resumes. As a legal recruiting firm, BCG Attorney Search and its recruiters spent a great deal of time revising resumes. The competitive advantage a good resume gave BCG Attorney Search's candidates was a factor in the company's rapid expansion. Because BCG Attorney Search could not help everyone with their resumes and because the company could only service a limited number of people at one time, Attorney Resume was started in August of 2005. Attorney Resume quickly became a national leader in writing resumes for attorneys and law students. Shortly thereafter, Preferred Resumes commenced operations.
