Why use professional resume services?

It makes so much sense to us here at Career Wizards because we do this everyday.  But, the question might cross your mind if you’re considering having your resume professionally written for the first time:  “Why should I hire a trained professional to help prepare my resume?”

Well, if you were going to buy or sell a home, wouldn’t you hire a professional realtor or attorney with years of experience and training to prepare the critical document for you?  After all, it’s rather risky to download a template or sample from the internet with fingers crossed that your interests will be well-covered.

Yet, that is exactly what many job seekers do.  Download a template from their word processing program and then plug in their information, hoping against hope that prospective employers will be able to see just how well-suited they are to open positions.

Hope is not something you can count on in today’s marketplace.  It’s far too competitive out there to make do with a resume that makes you look like all the rest.  You need to stand out from the crowd.  You need a professional document that makes a special statement about you.

The Main Advantage
A professional resume writing service will have staff that focuses on writing resumes everyday.   They’ll have experience preparing resumes for thousands of job seekers in diverse situations.  It’s what they specialize in, so they’ll be good at it. 

That’s the main advantage in using professional resume services, but just what can a professional resume writer do for you specifically?

Besides offering tons of expertise in the area of effective formatting and wordsmithing, a professional resume writer will help you market your skills, knowledge and experience in the resume.

Don’t doubt this for a moment.  Your resume is your brochure advertising brand YOU.  Unless you want be perceived as a cookie cutter candidate, you shouldn’t use a cookie cutter resume.  You want a document that reflects your uniqueness and personal brand.  You want to make the prospective employer curious to know more about the superstar candidate you are.
