Technically, no, you don't. That is probably not the answer you were expecting when you clicked on an article titled, "Do You Need Resume Service Writing?", that was written by a resume writing service no less; but it is the truth. There are a number of free resources available online or at your local library that can coach you through the creation of a quality resume. Of course resume writing isn't the only thing you don't need a professional for. Here is a list of jobs you can accomplish on your own if you have the determination and time to attempt them:
- Change the oil in your car
- Do your taxes
- Invest in the stock market
- Replace your shower
- Learn a foreign language
- Give your lawnmower a tune up
- Reupholster your couch
- Repair your roof
This list could of course go on and on. The point is not whether or not you could do any of these things; it is whether doing them is the most efficient and cost effective use of your time. Resume writing is no different. Doing your own taxes or repairing your own roof could end up costing you more in the long run, while also taking up hours, days (weeks?) of your valuable time. Trying to write your own resume could be just as troublesome.
What resume service writing provides is speed, efficiency and piece of mind.
Instead of laboring a week's worth of nights at the computer, experimenting with formats, styles and wording, you could have a professional complete this for you in just a couple of days. You would have the confidence that it is done correctly and done well.
So again do you need resume service writing? No. Will it make your life and the job hunting process much easier and less stressful? Yes. If you'd like to explore what a service like Quality Resumes could do for you shoot me an email. I'll go over your case- no strings attached. What do you have to lose, besides a week long headache that is.-Steve
