When I needed a resume written for a specific job, I went to a professional. Why? Because someone objective with professional knowledge of what HR managers and recruiters are seeking can do a better job writing about me than I can.
Professional expertise is important. Just as I would never write my own will or divorce or fill my own dental cavity, I go to an expert when I need a new resume. Resume writing isn’t simple or easy. A resume writer needs to know about the use of modern scan technology and how it picks out key words to sort resumes before human eyes ever see them. A professional knows how to format a resume so those scanners don’t discard your resume. A pro also understands the current job market and knows what hiring influencers want to see on new resumes. They also know what those hiring influencers do not want to see on new resumes.
Could I do that for myself? Of course. What other valuable quality does a professional resume writer offer?
Objectivity. While I have the expertise, I cannot maintain objectivity about my own career. Most of us are unable to be objective while writing our own resume. For those who are modest, it’s hard to sell ourselves effectively even when we truly are the experts at what we do. Others have difficulty in knowing where to just state the facts without embellishment.
When you combine expertise with objectivity, you get the perfect tools for creating a resume that scans well, catches the eye of hiring influencers, and promotes you effectively for the position you’re seeking.
Think about it: When even professional resume writers hire another professional to write their resume, it’s the obvious choice for anyone who wants an effective, powerful resume to represent them in a job search.
