How to Find Good Resume Writers

by fred 8. June 2010
It’s time for a career change; you’ve found an abundance of job listings that you’re great for and want to apply to as many as possible immediately. The first step to success will be having an effective resume that will show that you are the best person for the position.

Although you can prepare a resume on your own, it is often better to get resume writers from professional resume services to do the resume for you. These resume writers will have precious experience and know-how in the field of resume writing that will give you better chances of getting the job that you want. Here are some important factors to consider when hiring resume writers:

1.    Certification: There are two types of certification for resume writers: NCRW (Nationally Certified Resume Writer) and CPRW (Certified Professional Resume Writer). One isn’t better than the other, but to make sure you get the best resume writers, it is imperative
 that they have at least one of these two certifications.

2.    Experience: While you might save money by hiring beginner resume writers, the quality you get back may not be that great. If you find resume writers independently, you can gauge this for yourself; however, using a resume service may not offer you the option to choose between an experienced writer and a newbie. Fortunately, resume writers can’t get hired unless they have basic aptitude for successful resume writing, so going through a professional agency shouldn’t be a problem.

3.    Guarantees: All resume writers should guarantee results and offer free editing if you aren’t satisfied. After all, why would you trust someone who doesn’t believe in his/her own skills? You wouldn’t buy a $1,200 computer from a store that tells you that it cannot be returned if it doesn’t work, so why pay for a resume service that won’t cover their work?

4.    Reputation: All resume writing services should be willing to be accountable for the delivery of your finished product. So, if they tell you you will have it in 5 days you should have it by then, without excuses. If you are jerked around by resume writers, you might want to ask for a refund and find a more reputable company.

This can be verified simply by checking into the companies’ websites. Most offer a customer service section where you can read previous customers’ opinions about the services of the resume writers you are looking into hiring.

Having your resume professionally written by certified professional writers will only help you in your quest for a new career. However, make sure to keep these elements in mind when looking for resume writers, so that you don’t get taken advantage of. You could end up paying for services that you don’t get or that are not good enough, if you don’t take do your homework about these resume writers.
