Resume Writers

Posted 06 August 2008 - 12:03 PM

Howdy yall have any of yall used a resume writer? I am talking about a professional service where they write your resume for a fee after a mini interview. Basically I am looking at using one but I don't know what to expect or how to find a good one.

Why not just let some of help you edit one up real nice? We've got plenty of people here who have been hiring managers and seen plenty of resumes.

Keep in mind that our strength is design and coding, the resume writer's strength is getting comprehensive ideas on paper. It should be a plus.

I wouldn't pay someone to write my resume. I may consult with them, since its free on military installations, but I would still personally write mine.

I would not pay for someone to write my resume either they are easy to write. After 3 revisions I have received many complements on it. I learned that the trick to a solid resume is to use a short job description then to highlight your personal accomplishments with the company.

a lot of people bullet point things under the job and it is merely a summary of duties, that is a red flag. Employers want to see what you have done for the company, not what your description was.

Why would anyone hard code your name into an app?

I need to calm down. :)
