Why use a professional Résumé Writer

Our resident Professional Resume Writer, Cory Edwards has shared with us why people should use a professional resume writer.

……

If you are currently unemployed, a professionally written résumé significantly increases your chances of getting an interview.  If you’re currently employed, having your résumé written and/or updated by a professional résumé writer ensures you’re prepared for job opportunities should they arise.

How much is your career worth to you?  As a professional résumé writer, I am amazed at how little time and money most spend planning their careers. Most of us spend more time planning a family holiday each year than we do on creating a career strategy (and most of us spend more money on holidays than we would ever spend on planning or advancing our careers). Isn’t your career worth the investment of a professional résumé writer?  Professional résumé writers create résumés everyday and use current concepts and trends that make you more marketable.

Writing a résumé can be a daunting task. It has a style unlike virtually any other document you are likely to write. Consequently, many people rely on either preconceived ideas or stock templates when setting down their credentials, dooming themselves to a mediocre product that will not yield results. Soon, the lack of results translates into earnings lost, and your job search becomes very expensive.  Don’t waste valuable time (and money) by trying to write or update your résumé yourself. Instead, hire someone who does it every day and has a proven track record of getting their clients interviews.

The Importance of Proofreading & Editing

Our very own proofreader and editor, Karen Jones has shared with us…The Importance of Proofreading & Editing!

……

Proofreading and editing your documents is an essential part of publishing anything. Before you submit a book, blog post, essay, email, uni presentation or before a website goes live, you should always proofread your work or get someone else to read it first.  A second set of eyes to check your work is always a good idea.

There is nothing worse than reading someone’s work and finding grammatical errors or paragraphs which don’t read well.  It’s the first thing I notice when reading anything and it can sometimes mean the difference between using that person’s services or not.

Editing is also very important, especially if you are working on a client’s website; making sure all the links go to the correct pages is vital as well as checking that everything on the page looks streamlined and is sitting right.  You don’t want images being cut off by words or vice versa.

So the next time you write something, no matter what it is, make sure you proofread and edit it first and if you don’t have the time to do this yourself, then outsource your work to a professional who would be happy to do this for you.

Bye for now!
