Do Not Pay for a Resume to be Written

I am a paid writer, and I am even here to tell you; do not pay to have a resume written for you. Anyone can build a resume for themselves that they can be proud to give to a future employer. There are a few important points to keep in mind. I have listed the most important ones below.

· Do not be longwinded. We all love to brag on ourselves from time to time, whether we admit it or not. However, a resume is not the place to do that; the interview may very well be a different story. A resume should be short and sweet, pinpointing experience and moving on. The goal is to keep it to one page unless you have an extensive career path.

· Only include experience that is relevant for the job you are applying. This is the main reason why it is frowned upon to use the same resume for all jobs that you are applying for. Your experience may not fit all positions.

· Include numbers and percentages, if possible. This just makes you appear to know specifics. Maybe include a basic statement such as, “handled approximately 100 calls per day”. That simple line can be determined in several different ways, depending on the job you are applying for.

· Create your own career snapshot. This is just a quick flash or blurb about what experience you have and what you are looking for. Many people call it an objective statement. You are summarizing what you are looking for, what you can do and why you want a career in that field. This does not need to be long and drawn out. Keep it short and to the point. Surprisingly enough, this is often, the first statement a potential employer reads from your resume.

· Read it over, and then reread it when you think it is done. Check for grammatical errors, misspellings, and any type of formatting errors. Basic spelling or grammatical errors will be an immediate reason for your resume to be tossed to the wayside by any reputable company.

These five very basic points bridge the gap between yourself and the career you have been yearning after. When you are unemployed, the last thing you need to do is pour out unnecessary money, especially on something you can do yourself. Put your head down and really think about your ‘selling points’ and sell yourself!

As always, I am here to help…if you want me to read over a resume you have written for yourself, let me know. I would be happy to help anyone become employed.

Until Next Time.
