Cultural Conditioning Inhibits Proper Presentation in Self-made Resumes
So, why do self-made resumes often fail to create the required impact? Regardless of the professionalism required, the principal barrier comes from mental inhibitions that are culturally conditioned into us. Most of you would have been conditioned to follow the grammar rule, which says that in a sentence when more than one person including yourself is mentioned, then the others come first. It is not “I and Susan,” but “Susan and I.” This is a simple example of how we are culturally conditioned to place ourselves at the back end and put others forward. This is the reason why people find it extremely difficult to ask help for their own selves, but will go to great lengths and become charmingly persuasive when seeking help for others. And this is one of the biggest reasons why people fail to state information about their own selves in a properly organized and navigable manner in a self-made resume. We are culturally conditioned to deny our self-interests and that comes through in a resume instinctively. You are not alone, even professional resume writers goof up in self-creating their own resumes, while at the same time continuing to create stellar resumes for others on the job.
Amateurish Attempts Are Bound To Fall Short Of Standards
As a competent candidate with full confidence in your own abilities, you are bound to doubt my words. That is good; it shows you have confidence in yourself. But let's consider the situation carefully. You are trying to create one of the most important documents in your life, your resume, and you are going to stake your career upon it. When it comes to care and attention for such a document, you cannot afford any negligence. And believe me, your confidence in your language skills is incorrect, for you are human and prone to make errors.
Okay, if you don't trust me, just pick up any bestselling novel in the market, a novel written by an author whom you recognize as a true artist and master of the language. Open the pages of credits. How many names of editors and proofreaders do you find there? None? Or more than you ever presumed? And even with big teams of editors and proofreaders working over the content produced by a bestselling author, errors still creep through into print. You know that.
If the best of the best in writing cannot manage without multiple editors and proofreaders, what are your chances? It is not a question of language ability, but that to err is human, and it is human to miss our own mistakes, for otherwise, they would not have been there in the first place.Professional resume writing services offer a content pipeline watched over by multiple professionals and ensure your chances of producing a much better resume, than usually possible with your own efforts. And the worst disservice you can do to yourself is to take amateurish attempts at creating one of the most important documents of your life. Your resume is your gate pass to job interviews. You cannot afford to neglect it.
