We all know how much a resume matters while job-hunting. A prefect resume is actually the first step towards a perfect job – which is probably why it has become sort of a trend for people to hire a resume writer!
Now, you must be wondering who a resume writer is and how it would be beneficial to hire one. Don’t worry, I did too when I first came across the term; after all, how hard could it be to write a resume right?
Well, there is a lot of stuff to bear in mind while writing a resume and not everyone can write their resumes in the correct way. A fresher just out of college might not be knowing what the companies expect to see in a resume and an experienced person looking for a career change wouldn’t really happen to know what the current market trends are, or which of his achievements should be highlighted.
This is where a resume writer comes into the picture. The resume writer is your go-to person for all things related to producing a perfect resume. They will of, course, be well-versed in using professional terms and the correct keywords to sell you, via your resume. It will help you be unique and stand out amongst the hundreds and possibly thousands of applicants.
But before listing out all the benefits of a hiring a resume writer, let’s stop and think WHO should hire a resume writer first.
Honestly, it’s like saying you do your own taxes because no one knows your finances better than you – while there are definite advantages to writing your own resume, it would not be prudent to do so if you aren’t well versed in the art of writing a good resume.
For those people who are comfortable writing their own resumes and can produce a professional looking one – great! But for those of us who aren’t (and I’m pretty sure that’s the majority of people), it is completely okay to hire a professional resume writer. I do believe that recognizing and making use of others’ expertise and experience can only benefit you in the end.
Moving on to the advantages of hiring a resume writer:
Most companies and the officials in HR would say that not all candidates are objective enough to present themselves in their resume in the most favourable way, hence the need for hiring a resume writer.
A good resume writer will not just copy-paste your achievements or draft a document based on their preconceptions of you. Any resume writer who is good enough to make it a career will definitely use a more personal and individualized approach. The end result will be far better than what we could have managed ourselves, trust me on that!
The hired resume writer will work hard to find your heretofore undiscovered talents, identify your strengths, bring forth the positive aspects in your personality and essentially make you the perfect candidate for the job by presenting it in the best light possible.
Now, just a simple reminder to all of you that hiring a resume writer and expecting them to present you with the perfect resume while you sit back and enjoy is not going to work. It should be a collaboration with constant communication between the resume writer and candidate. You all need to actively participate and contribute to the process to ensure that the resume written by the professional resume writer holds true to yourself and reflects your personality.
