Is hiring a resume writer worth it?
Imagine that you are introduced to the CEO of a company you really, really want to work for. It would be your dream to work for this company!
Now imagine that the CEO asks if she can see your resume.
Do you confidently tell her you’ll send it to her directly, tomorrow, confident that your resume represents you and your qualifications powerfully and in such a compelling way you feel certain you’ll be the obvious best choice for your dream job?
Or, do you immediately start trying to come up with some excuse because you know your resume is outdated and not that good even if it was updated?
Dream job opportunities don’t come up every day. In fact, they are very rare, and in today’s environment, they are rarer than ever.
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
– Benjamin Franklin
But what to do? You aren’t an expert at resume writing, and even if you had a clue what to include in your resume or not include in your resume, you wouldn’t be at all confident once it was done.
If you are like most job seekers, you spend hours agonizing over it, but still feel unsure and insecure, certain that your competitors’ for your dream job have resumes that are WAY better than yours.
The solution to all this angst is simpler than it might first seem: hire a professional resume writer, get resume help, and have your resume professionally written.
Hiring a professional resume writer–assuming that person is a true professional writer with expertise, training, and talent in the field of resume writing–is often one of the best investments you will ever make in your career.
Having a professionally written resume ready to submit at a moment’s notice gives you an unbeatable professional edge.
So yes, hiring a professional resume writer is well worth the investment.
But, how do you hire a resume writer?
How do you find resume writing services, and once you do, how do you make your choice about which to work with?
After all, not all resume writers are equal in talent and experience. Some have far more experience and training than others.
Some resume writers work alone, providing resume writing services as a solopreneur. Others work on a team within a professional resume-writing services firm.
Which resume service is better? How do you make sure you are dealing with the best resume writers?
These are all important questions that you need to ask before you select a resume writing service to work with.
Here then, are a few guidelines to help you in answering these questions and more.
