Resume writing services are becoming less of a luxury service, and more of a requirement, but with every would-be employed individual touting their ability to craft you an amazingly high-converting resume crawling the Anaheim job market making the decision on who to choose to write your resume might prove challenging. How can you distinguish the start-up diamond in the rough offering affordable prices from your neighborly helpful advice giver who believes that they provide a service but cannot back it up with results?
Resume writing services are an exceptional service for those who are seeking to either break into a new field, who do not possess the organizational ability to create their own resume, and those who are high-level professionals seeking a six figure salary and need that extra edge to compete. But danger lay under the opportunity to profit from this economy by providing black and white copy services. We have outlined a few of the things you must know before embarking on the adventure of hiring the right resume writing service.
The same advice applies to any service, but particularly to resume writing services. Rule number one; you get what you pay for when hiring a resume writer. Professional resume writers have a background in either the employment sales or marketing sales industry and are highly trained professionals who can easily take your detailed experience and craft the ‘marketing piece of you’. Your resume is just that, a marketing piece, and intelligent business owners know that they must outsource these services to see amazing results. Your marketing piece, your resume, is no different. Expect to invest in a professional service unless you are already seeing the results you desire on your own, and remember that outsourcing in this situation does not help if the person does not fluently speak English. Cutting costs means cutting corners with a resume writing service.
When you hire a resume writer, or resume writing service you become the employer, and they become the contractor. Your employer is going to check your references, and you should do the same. Ask for references and samples of their work. Do not rely solely on testimonials posted online when searching for the right resume writer. Not everyone is ethical and many companies have been known to have sales copywriters create their testimonials to convince people to buy their services.
Ask a friend who quickly landed a job to refer you to the professional resume writing service they used. Chances are that they landed the job because of a combination of using a resume writing service and providing the right details to the resume writer.
Remember that hiring a resume writing service is something that you want to get right the first time in order to save time, money, and effort. Focus on competence over compensation, credentials over cost, and work from references and referrals instead of online print. Once you’ve had your resume polished to perfection set up an online profile and watch as the interview offers begin to roll in on autopilot.
