A Well-Written Resume
Summer is just around the corner and that means vacation time for most of us. With time away from the office and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, it give us that well deserved breather, to start thinking about updating our resumes.
Whether you are just keeping your resume up-to-date or preparing for a change, a well written resume gives you that winning edge over your competition; it is the key to generating a myriad of interviews and provides you with the ammunition towards earning a more impressive salary. After all – your resume is a marketing tool and is the 1st impression a prospective employer has of you. You want that 1st impression to be the best it can be.
There is no better time then the present to begin searching for that resume writer who you feel comfortable working with. Compatibility is the key to success. A professionally written resume will set you apart from your competition and will work hard to get your foot in the door towards landing that position you have been dreaming about. If you prefer an in-person consultation, be sure and ask the resume writer, if they offer in-services. However, a good resume writer, can produce an award winning resume by working with you in-person, over-the-phone or by email. At times, fax services are also an option. This is the first step to selecting a writer who is right for you.
Check the credentials of the writer. Ask them how long they have been writing resumes – Do they have a successful track record? How long will it take to produce your resume. Remember – you don’t want to rush a “work of art.” Check pricing, but remember – the cheapest resume is not necessarily the best resume. It’s just cheaper. You only get what you pay for. So, be selective, but not so selective that you price yourself out of a good fit and a great resume.
Once you have made your selection, pick up the phone or email the resume writer of your choice to take that 1st step toward enhancing your career opportunities.
