Should You Pay Someone To Make A Resume?
Writing a basic resume might seem like a fairly easy task, but writing a truly fantastic resume is an art form. If you’ve been contemplating whether or not to pay someone to make a resume, here are some solid reasons why we strongly believe that you should take the plunge and use a professional resume writing service.
1. Error-Free Resumes
Even if you are a spelling champion and a grammar expert, it’s possible to make a mistake on a resume. Hiring managers tell us that this is typically the top reason why resumes are overlooked or end up in a trash bin. Careless mistakes can kill your chances of attaining a great job, but when you pay someone to make a resume, you can avoid this issue.
At Resume Writing Group, your resume will be created by an experienced professional resume writer. Not only will this writer edit their own work carefully, a professional resume editor also will review the document to look for spelling, grammar and syntax errors, as well as ensuring that the presentation and language will appeal to hiring managers.
2. Applicant-Tracking Software Issues
For many jobs, resumes are submitted electronically and then run through applicant-tracking software. These software programs search for specific keywords related to a job posting, so it’s crucial that these keywords are listed on your resume. When you pay someone to make a resume, it’s best to ensure that they know how to write resumes to appeal both to hiring managers as well as applicant-tracking software. At Resume Writing Group, our team of writers has the experience to create ATS-friendly resumes as well as those you present to a hiring manager.
3. Quantifiable Skills & Dynamic Language
While keywords are crucial, dynamic language also impresses hiring managers and they want to see examples of what you have accomplished. Rather than stating that you “were tasked with employee training,” transform this to read, “Created training materials for new employees, increasing productivity by 20%.” This tells a hiring manager that you are creative, possess good communication skills, and that your work yields results.
Always, try to quantify your skills. If you managed people, describe how many people worked under you. If you developed software programs, describe how those programs improved the company. Keep it short and sweet, but provide solid examples of your capabilities. If you aren’t quite sure how to do this, we can help. When you pay someone to make a resume, they can transfer all your skills and abilities into a clear, concise document that allows hiring managers to quickly understand your qualifications.
4. Proper Format
The typical resume includes contact information and then quickly lists your educational experience, your work experience and your additional skills. Too often, people either send out resumes that appear bland and uninteresting or they play around too much with design and make it difficult to read. At Resume Writing Guild, we will provide you with a resume that includes the correct format as well as a resume that is crisp, clean, well-designed and easy to read. We also strive to keep resumes down to a single page or a page and a half at most. Hiring managers don’t have time to peruse two and three-page resumes, so we’ll keep it short, sweet and attractive.
5. The “Right” Information
When you pay someone to make a resume, they should know which information to include and which to omit, but this can be tricky to figure out if you are doing it yourself. Our tendency usually is to include too much, when hiring managers simply want to glance through a resume and find the specific skills needed for a specific job posting. Once you hit the interview process, you might bring up additional skills that you possess, but if a hiring manager only spends about 20 seconds reading your resume the first time, it’s crucial that they find precisely what they need and don’t have to skim over two or three pages to find this information.
If you do wish to pay someone to make a resume, contact the team at Resume Writing Group at any time. We can provide any type of resume you might need, as well as cover letters, LinkedIn profile writing and much more. Our resumes are backed by a unique guarantee. If you use our resume and follow our advice, but aren’t hired in 45 days or less, we will refund the price of your resume and give you an additional $100.
