Writing your resume can be a tedious and a frustrating project especially when you just want to get to your job search! If you feel this way hiring a professional resume writing may be a good idea and here are 5 reasons you should:
1. That’s what they do
Hiring a professional resume writer gives you the leg up on the compeition. Like other professionals, the resume writer will give you a great looking resume which is properly formated with pertinent information. Be sure to hire a writer who you will be writing your resume directly and check for samples, certificates and credentials.
2. Different Perspective
Writing your own resume is good because you know yourself! But getting a pro to write it for you gives you an unbiased prospective. They will focus on aspects of your skills and experience that you didn’t really think about.
3. More time for job search
As your resume is being written you can start your job search! Start skimming through job posting scrapers like LinkedIn and save postings as you go along. When you get your resume you can easily apply to any postings that you have already researched.
4. Interviewing you
A good resume writer will interview you. A simple email questionnaire is good, but when a resume writer talks to you that’s even better. This interview will get you thinking about you and your job search and things related to it that you didn’t even consider. Ask if you can be sent the interview for your own records.
5. Proper Format
The resume writer will know how to write your resume properly in respect to keywords and format. ATS (Automated Tracking Systems) scan, analyze and store your resume data that is reviewed by humans–resume writers will write properly formatted resumes that are geared to these systems and give you a better chance for an interview.
