Are your job search dollars invested in the right place?

Are your job search dollars invested in the right place?

As a professional resume writer, many people invest their job search dollars in my services who understand they need a competitive edge to get ahead. Some apologize when they call me because they think that they should be able to write their resume and conduct their own job search all by themselves.

No need to apologize for being smart with your job search dollars!

We talk about what I do when I need services like an oil change or car repair. I hire a mechanic who understands my car better than I do. When I get sick, I call my doctor and then schedule an appointment to resolve the problem. I hire Becky at Halo Salon to do my hair because I have learned that Becky cuts my hair and gives me styles that make me look more professional.

If I hold off on the mechanic, my car will eventually not run. When I have an illness that needs professional care, I will not recover as quickly. Should I think I can cut my own hair, well, ask Becky what happens when I cut my own bangs!

When you hold off hiring a professional resume writer or job search expert because of the investment, you stall your job search. The investment in a professional resume writer is minute compared to the amount of time you can waste and lost opportunities by selling yourself with an inferior resume.

The economy has made buying decisions hard. We put off investing in services that matter. If you have been holding back, make the smart decision to hire a professional resume writer today to position you for the career success that you deserve.

    Job seekers hire a professional resume writer for the same reason they pay a professional to cut their hair. They want to look good.
