If you don’t think you need to have someone look at your resume, take the quiz below.
1. True or False. A resume should always be one page.
Answer: If you answered true, then you should consult a professional
Answer 2: If you still think the answer is true, you REALLY need a professional.
2. Given a choice, you should have a friend, neighbor or relative write your resume or fix your brakes on your car.
Answer: It is more dangerous to have a non-professional write your resume than it is to have them fix your brakes. Your career can have a value into the millions and a poor resume will keep you from the best opportunities where as a bad break job has a much lower risk potential.
3. What is the best day to apply for a job?
Answer: Ask a professional resume writer or ask your neighbor who just fixed your brakes.
4. It is cheaper to write your own resume?
Answer: The bigger question is what would be lost by not having your resume done professionally. If for example, it took six months to find out a home made resume wasn’t working, then the cost of doing it yourself might be ½ a year’s pay which is definitely more than a resume writer would charge you.
5. What could possibly go wrong when doing my own resume?
Answer: Please reread this article from the top of the page.
