3 Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Resume Writing Service Print E-mail

We’ve stressed this many times before. While there may be a host of factors that go into securing a job, having a resume that effectively conveys the message that you’re the right candidate for the position, is the first step to getting the interview. Are you 100% confident that your resume is optimized for success?

There are plenty of job search articles that aim to give job seekers tips and strategies that will better their chances. While many of the tips vary, job search experts strongly recommend having a professional service look at your resume first.

Not only will a resume writing service help you portray your strongest qualities on paper, expert writers are experienced in the hiring process. With all the competition for the job you’re applying for, a resume writing service can save you time by making your resume stand out above the rest.

With that being said, make sure you think about these factors when choosing the right resume writing service:

Qualifications

Who is the firm writing your resume and how are they qualified to do so? How long have they’ve been in business? These are things you MUST know before handing over money to a resume writing service. Any service that doesn’t readily share their experience and accolades is a clear sign that their service can’t be trusted.

Testimonials

If someone came up to you in the street and said that he/she could write a resume that would get you any interview you wanted, would you believe him/her? I would hope not.

The internet is full of promises from people and businesses you’ve never heard of so be careful! When choosing the right resume writing service, make sure you look for ‘authentic’ testimonials. I say authentic because any service can create and publish testimonials on the internet. Therefore, it’s important to evaluate the legitimacy of the testimonials you read.

A good way to read authentic testimonials is to visit a company’s LinkedIn page. The recommendations come from registered LinkedIn members, so there’s a very slim chance of fabrication by employees from the service.

Free consultations and guarantees

Lastly, take into consideration the ability to send your resume to an expert for a free resume review. This is a great chance to see the amount of work your resume needs and if the service is really honest, you might learn that little or no work is required at all. Since a free consultation isn’t binding, you can learn a lot about how you can improve your resume without paying a single dime. The initial feedback from a free consultation may be the only thing holding you back from getting the interview you want – so what are you waiting for?

Don’t forget to make sure you read and UNDERSTAND a resume service’s guarantee. For example, the GetInterviews guarantee is “Guaranteed interviews in 30 days, or we’ll re-write your resume for free.” With this guarantee, GetInterviews clients can be sure their resume will get them the interview – and if it doesn’t, the resume will be re-written at no extra charge. Ensure you choose a service that can offer you a guarantee so that you have a sense of security.  

In conclusion, you should never choose a resume writing service that doesn’t have all the aforementioned aspects. A service that has all three of these components is one that will do the best for your job search.
