There are very few people who can write their own résumé properly. Yes, there are templates available from different sources and yes, you can take shortcuts by getting a friend or family member to do one for you. But is it working? Is it professional? Does it really do you justice?
Your résumé is your advertisement and a critical part of your career arsenal. You could be doing yourself a great disservice by skimping on it as it could mean the difference between a fantastic job, an ordinary job or, as so many have found, no job at all!!!
Two heads are better than one and there are times where a fresh set of eyes can make a difference. Don’t take your résumé for granted, particularly if you wrote it yourself. Chances are that it does not do you justice and is the reason why you can’t get a job or the job you want. It could in fact be costing you a lot more than you think… how much income have you lost out on? How much wages have you not earned over a six week or six month period… thousands $$$’s. Investing in a professionally developed résumé is a smart move.
