Choosing Resume Writers

by fred 2. June 2010

It’s time for a career move; you have found a bunch of job ads that you would be great for and want to apply to as many as possible immediately. The first step to success will be having an functional resume that will show that you are the best person for the position.

Even though you can prepare a resume on your own, it is often beneficial to get resume writers from professional resume writing services to do it for you. These professional writers will have valuable experience and knowledge in the field of resume writing that will give you better odds of getting your dream job. Here are some important elements to look for when hiring resume writers:

1.    Certification: There are two types of certification for resume writers: NCRW (Nationally Certified Resume Writer) and CPRW (Certified Professional Resume Writer). One isn’t better than the other, but to make sure you get the best resume writers, it is imperative
 that they have at least one of these two certifications.

2.    Experience: While you might save money by hiring beginner resume writers, the quality of their writing may not be that great. If you find resume writers independently, you can gauge this for yourself; however, hiring from a resume service may not offer you the option of an experienced resume writer versus a fresh hire. Fortunately, all certified resume writers at least have basic skills for successful resume writing, so going through a professional agency should not be a problem.

3.    Guarantees: All resume writers should guarantee results and offer free revisions if you are not happy. After all, why would you trust someone who does not believe in his/her own skills? You wouldn’t buy a $1,000 TV from a store that tells you that it can’t be returned if it doesn’t work, so why pay for resume services that won’t meet your needs?

4.    Accountability: All resume writers should be willing to be accountable for the delivery of your finished resume. So, if they tell you you will have it in 5 days you should have it by then, without excuses. If you are jerked around by resume writers, you might want to ask for a refund and find a more reputable company.

This can be verified simply by checking into the resume writers’ websites. Most offer testimonials where you can read previous customers’ opinions on the writers you’re considering.

Having your resume professionally prepared by certified professional writers will only help you in your quest for a new career. However, you do need to make sure that you keep these things in mind when looking for resume writers, so that you don’t get taken advantage of. You could end up paying for services that you don’t get or that are not good enough, if you don’t take do your homework about these resume writers.

I'm wondering how the guarantee works. If I don't get hired in a specified period of time, should I be asking for a refund? I'm not sure where the line is for the guarantee. Do some writers map that out at the time of hire?
