Should You Hire a Resume Writer?

If you want to land your dream job (whether you want to be the next Steve Wynn or Steve Jobs), you need to be able to sell yourself. If you are like most people, though, you have a hard time talking about yourself and how awesome you are. You’re proud of your accomplishments, sure, but telling people about them makes you feel like a jerk.

So what do you do? How do you make sure your resume reflects your awesomeness if you can’t write about it without cringing?

You’ve got two options:

1. You can get over it.

2. You can hire a resume writer.

Hiring a resume writer seems like a superfluous expense. You’re already strapped for cash and making ends meet is difficult. Do you really want to spend money paying someone to do something that you ought to be able to do yourself?

Good Resume Writers Are Like Ghosts

A good resume writer will be able to create a resume that sells you and reads as if you had written it yourself. They will learn your cadence and style and be able to implement that.

Special Fields Have Special Needs

If you work in a highly specialized field, it can be difficult to find a writer who can talk about your education and background in a convincing way. A great writer should be able to do it, but you might have to pay more money for this specific skill set.

You Can Find What You Need Online

There are plenty of free tutorials on the Internet that will teach you how to format a good resume and give you examples of how to write out your background, accomplishments, and goals.

Hiring a Writer Saves You Time

If someone else writes your resume, that saves you potentially hours of time learning how to do it yourself. Trying hiring someone to from a site like CraftResumes. That’s time you can use to track down new job leads, make connections, etc.

How Many Resumes Do You Need?

Many job seekers have found that having separate resumes for different types of job fields helps them get ahead of the pack. Creating one resume to highlight your education when you’re applying for a job in academia while creating another to highlight accomplishments when you’re applying for a job in the private sector is just good business sense. It’s the job seeker’s version of “knowing your audience.” A good writer can help you do that.

Do You Need a Cover Letter, Too?

If you can figure out how to create and format a good resume, you can probably figure out how to compose a fantastic cover letter. If you’re having trouble with your resume, though, you might want to find someone to help you with the cover letter as well. It’s possible to find resume writers who can do both.

Whether or not hiring a professional resume writer is in your best interest is really up to you…and how honest you can be with yourself. If what you’ve been using hasn’t proven helpful, maybe it’s time to hire a pro.
