When you want to stand out in a crowd, sometimes it pays to hire professionals to help you. And, sometimes you can get the same exact results on your own with a little elbow grease and ingenuity.
So, we asked our career experts what they thought about professional writing services. Can a professionally written resume really make a difference? Is it worth it to have your resume written or edited by professional writers?
Here’s what Amanda Tallent (a CEO) had to say about her experience hiring and getting getting speaking gigs with the help of a professional writer:
A Hiring Manager’s Process
I find when I’m hiring I get so many resumes that are boring and give no real indication of who I’m looking at. Thus I end up needing to do heaps of interviews. This also doesnt work as interviews are time consuming and expensive, thus I tend to choose the first reasonably good candidate that I interview and forget the rest.
How to Stand Out in a Crowd of Resumes
I did get one fantastic resume and I was so impressed I found out that they had actually paid for it to be done professionally. It was one page, designed and had all the relevant information right by Resume Wow.
I decided to get the bio done for myself in business and withing 2 weeks I had x3 speaking jobs in Vic and interstate, plus my PR activity became more effective with me getting neally double the call backs from my source bottle contributions.
Here is the link where they have used my bio as an example on their website: http://resumewow.vpweb.com.au/
To get a job you need to stand out. 1st impressions count which means your resume has to sell you.
A big thanks to Amanda for that tip!
