5 Signs You Should Hire a Professional Resume Writer


What Do Professional Resume Writers Know That Job Seekers Do Not?

So, what’s the secret sauce that professional resume writers have up their sleeves that most job seekers don’t know about? Well, here’s the scoop: it’s our job to help you shine in your job search.

  • We eat, sleep, and breathe this stuff – seriously! We’re constantly studying and keeping up with all the latest job search trends. Take, for example, applicant tracking systems (ATS) – they weren’t quite the same beast a decade ago as they are now. We’ve got our finger on the pulse of these changes.
  • Here’s the kicker: no one really teaches you how to navigate the job search jungle in college. And honestly, the free advice you might get from career counselors can often be way off the mark. The job hunt is, in many ways, a bit like marketing. You’ve got to package your story just right, using the words and format that companies are hunting for.

Now, let’s ponder a few questions:

  • Do you want to be a master negotiator when it comes to your salary? You bet! And guess what? Your resume should be your secret weapon for landing a salary that’s 8-10% (or even 10% more) than you’d initially settle for.
  • Do you really have 30-40 hours a week to waste firing off job applications with a subpar resume that’s as effective as a leaky bucket? Probably not.
  • So, how long are you planning to keep hammering away with that lackluster resume before you decide to get some expert help?

The truth is, resume writers, for the most part, have a knack for getting you through the interview door more often. Think of it like hiring a pro plumber, a painter, a lawyer, or even a home builder. You trust them because they excel at what they do, right? Well, it’s the same story with resume writers like me.
