Save $1,000.00 with Your Job Search

Want to Save $1,000.00 with Your Job Search?

Believe it or not, this is not some get rich quick scam; it is not a short cut or loophole. Instead this is good ol’ fashioned advice that has work for others for years. Want to know the secret to saving $1,000.00 or more on your next job search?

Have a professional write your resume.

Now before you start thinking I am just here hawking my services let me explain.

According to most experts the average time a job seeker is out of work is 6 to 8 months. To go along with this most HR professionals will tell you that better than 80% of the resumes they receive are rejected within ten seconds.

These two figures are not unrelated. Poor resume writing leads to longer periods of unemployment.

Now let’s add some hypothetical numbers. The median income is around $41,000. Let’s go even lower and base the following on an income of $36,000. Stay with me now, if your desired income is $36k then your monthly pay would be $3,000. If you were out of work for 6 months that would be a loss of $18,000!

Now what if you paid an expert to write your resume and you got a job two months earlier. That would save you $6,000. How much would you be willing to pay for a document that could save you $6k? If you had your taxes done by a qualified CPA and he found you a $6,000 refund, you would gladly pay him a sizable fee wouldn’t you?

And remember, we were basing this example on a desired income of only $36,000.

So, if you want to save some serious money on your job search then it pays to have someone who really knows the ins and outs of resume writing working with you. It doesn't have to be me (of course I'd be most happy if you decided to hire me), just about any serious professional resume writer could give you these advantages. At the very least you should spend some time looking at what goes into a modern resume and how it is put together. You should research the key terms and phrases that will get your resume beyond the ever-present auto screeners that many larger companies use.
