Resume service
Hiring a resume service to put together your resume can be a really good idea - especially if you are not really sure how to make a resume that can accurately convey your experience and abilities. Hiring a resume service can be a great move to help you project a professional image and help you get the job that you really want. How do you go about hiring a resume service, though?

First, look in the Yellow Pages and see if there are any businesses that offer a resume service in your area. You can also utilize the Internet since we are now living in the Information Age. You can just e-mail the resume service all of your information and they put it together in a gorgeous format that is sure to impress you as well as any prospective employers. Look to your community college as well for a resume service. These types of services are often provided for free and are meant to help you craft your own resume with a minimum of involvement and just a little bit of advice.

Keep in mind that if you want to hire a resume service to make your resume, you will have to pay a fee for it. If you think that the rates the resume service is charging is a little more than you want to pay, just move on to another one. This writer once had her own resume service. I learned by trial and error how much to charge people. I also learned about the headaches of non-paying customers, but that is a different story! At any rate, while times have changed considerably since I had my business, it is not uncommon to find a service that will ask for anywhere from $25 to $50 for a resume and then another $20 or so for a cover letter.

Now, you might be feeling a little sticker shock here, but realize that when you hire a resume service, you are getting a professional. That means that the person who is doing your resume has had experience putting together winning resumes and you will have a quality product for your money.

If you are serious about getting the job of your dreams and have little to no experience crafting a resume, you may want to look into hiring a resume service to help you along the way. All you need to do is give them pertinent information and then wait for the finished product to arrive in your e-mailbox. After that, you take the beautiful resume that your resume service has provided, send it out to prospective employers and then wait for that phone call!
