Should You Use a Resumé Writing Service?

I know the very fact and you will also agree that job search is not easy task. In this economy, searching for jobs require well planned effort and time. A resumé helps a lot in determining if you will get an interview call or not.

I was talking to a recent graduate with master’s degree in computer science and he is applying for jobs for the last 3 months and still hasn’t received even a single interview call.

Another student was looking for internship and applied to 6 companies in last the 4 days and got rejected/not selected email within 2 days. If you are in a similar situation, you need to consider making changes to your resumé.

In any job search, if the approach you are using is not able to get you an interview call, then you have to start making some changes. The first place to start is with your resumé.

Truth about Resumés

Think about the following facts about resumés:

  • Companies receive thousands of resumés every day for a single job position. Hiring managers and HR persons don’t have the time to read all the resumés in detail.
  • At most, they spend 2 minutes or less to scan a resumé.
  • Most of the resumés I review have many grammatical errors and typos, which means your resumé is going to the Recycle Bin.

I applied for 589 Companies for Internship

"When I was applying for internship, I spent one full semester and made it a routine to apply to at least 10 jobs in a day. I had a huge list of job search websites and I was applying in brute force. I ended up getting 2 interview calls and 1 job offer. Later I realized my mistake. My resumé was totally flawed. I had talent and academic skills, but I didn’t express in the right way. I didn’t have the words and proper sentences to express my skills. My template was a standard template used by all the students. That’s when I decided to get my resumé evaluated and written by resumé writing service."

Advantages of Resumé Writing service

The following advantages are available when you get your resumé written by a professional:

Do the Math

Entry level student and graduate student resumé packages cost $150 which is just your one day’s earning after you get a job. Think about 3 to 4 months of your time wasted without any interview call.

With only $150 of expense, it’s almost instant savings when you get an interview call. If you don’t get a job in 90 days in OPT, you will be out of legal status.

I would spend $150 to $200 to get my resumé written professionally. This way, my resumé will stand out from the crowd of other job seekers.

If you believe you have the talent and skills and if your current resumé is not getting the job done, it’s definitely worth spending for a resumé writing service.
