Does a professional resume really make a difference?
In today’s competitive market place is it worth the money to have someone with resume writing experience develop your resume? As a job seeker you may ponder this approach as you begin your job search, especially when your current resume is ineffective in getting you that coveted interview.
Here are some things to consider …
If you are among the ranks of today’s job hunters: 1) how do you make the right impression and catch the eye of a hiring manager who looks at your resume for 10 to 25 seconds and 2) what do you put in your resume that makes a compelling case for you to be chosen for the ‘interview’?
Realize that hiring managers get to know you in a quick glance and your resume better be impressive. Even if you are seeking a low-end position, know that the chances of getting noticed in a pile of mundane resumes filled with never-ending bullet points and outdated formatting is unlikely.
Become competitive and gain an edge
For those of you who are not writers and/or have a hard time looking at your work history in the same way a hiring manager would, consider hiring a professional resume writer, one who knows how to entice the reader, makes you shine and positions you for the job/career you are seeking. With such an overwhelming response to job postings and openings, a professionally written resume can give you an edge over all the others who apply.
