Choosing an Online Resume Writer
Having your resume written by a professional is a wonderful idea if you do not know how to write a CV. A search on Google for the term ‘online resume writer’ brings up millions of results. That is quite a huge number.
The problem is that the industry is not governed by anybody/authority. Anyone therefore can claim to be an online resume writer, operate a website, and take CV writing orders. To make matters worse, each company works independently. This means that each company offers a completely different service. It also means that a service that’s perfect for someone else may not be right for you.
All this makes it almost impossible to find a reliable online resume writer to help you write a CV. So the following tips should prove quite useful.
- Shop around. Do not just pick the first company you find, even if you like it. Compare a couple of CV writing services to make sure you land on the best. Getting your CV written by a professional online resume writer is a great investment.
- Check qualifications. Does the resume company have online resume writers? What are their qualifications and training? Any experience? Does their expertise suit what you are looking for? Are there any certifications or are they highly recommended?
- Look at their sample CVs. A good resume company should display various samples on their website showing the ‘before’ and ‘after’ format. This should show you clearly what was changed to make it more effective. A good sample should impress you immediately and if it doesn’t, continue shopping around.
- Guarantees. Finally, ask about their guarantees. Do they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee? If so, make it clear that you’ll not settle for anything less. A good resume company should be ready to make revisions where necessary either free or at a low cost depending on the revision request.
