NEW YORK (July 9, 2014) — Talent Inc., formerly Nova Global Inc., the parent company of Doostang and TopResume, today announced the acquisition of the assets of RezBiz, a leading provider of professional resume writing and LinkedIn makeover services. The transaction forms the largest resume writing service in the country and enables Talent Inc. to expand its product offerings to new markets.
RezBiz operates seven consumer brands that provide resume writing, LinkedIn makeovers, and related career services to job seekers. RezBiz has written over 135,000 professional resumes, each completed by a writer who works one-on-one with every client to ensure top quality and complete customer satisfaction.
"Our resume-writing service has grown exponentially in the last year and this acquisition was a natural fit to combine forces with a great team and accelerate our growth," said Jeff Berger, CEO at Talent Inc. "Resume writing is not a new business, but our approach is unique. With this acquisition, we'll write over 100,000 resumes per year, while continuing to deliver quality that has proven to result in more job interviews for candidates."
As a result of this acquisition, Founders and Co-CEOs, J. Melissa Cooper and Todd Goldstein will join Talent Inc., as EVP of Writer Network and EVP of Strategic Development respectively. "In addition to our talented writer network, we owe much of our success to our job board and affiliate partners. Combining forces with Talent Inc. now gives us the depth of resources needed to continue to grow and develop our partnerships that reach millions of job seekers globally," said Todd Goldstein, EVP at Talent Inc.
EVP Melissa Cooper adds, "We have already helped over 100,000 people get their job search documents into mint condition for an affordable price. Our goal is to reach as many job seekers as we can, while creating additional income for talented writers. With Talent Inc., we'll now be able to do that."
