How many times have you heard someone say, “I really need/want to get another job, but I just don’t even have time to get my resume together”? Constructing a resume that will actually get pulled out of a pile of applications is a time-consuming task. I’ve personally had friends who spent months and months at a job they hated because they simply couldn’t find the time to sit down and write their resume. If this sounds like you or someone you know, we have a great gift idea for you this year—the gift of time.
One of the key benefits to hiring a professional resume writer is the amount of time the process saves you. We ask our clients to send us whatever version of their resume they already have, and then we spend an hour to 90 minutes on the phone conducting a personalized interview and evaluation of their talents. Because our writers compose visually outstanding, easily searchable resumes for a living, it takes us far less time to prepare your documents than it would for you to do it yourself. In fact, we get our clients’ first drafts to them within one week—and often sooner than that. If you like what you see, you’re ready to go. If we need to make changes, we work with you to complete your revisions as quickly as possible.
There are a lot of different resume services out there these days, and the truth is that some cost less than ours. Like many things in life, you get what you pay for—and that applies to resume writing as well. If you’re going to order a resume from a company that simply plugs your information into a formula and spits out a document without ever even talking to you, then save your money and go check out a resume writing book from the library. The value of a professional service is the personal attention you receive from the resume writer. Without ever talking to you, a resume writer simply can’t capture what makes you special as an individual—and as an employee.
All the documents we produce include a professional branding statement that sets you apart as a candidate. Our writers draw these branding statements from our in-depth consultations with our clients. If you or your loved one has some time off around the holidays this year, what better opportunity to spend an hour or two working with our resume service? You get to enjoy the holidays and be prepared for the new year’s hiring wave. We have it on good word from Santa that resumes make fabulous stocking stuffers. Check out our writing services today!
