In need of a new resume but unsure of how to go about doing it?

When it comes time for a new resume—whether for sudden unemployment, a career change, or a pending promotion—there are three main options available: do it yourself, hire an online resume writing company, or consult directly with a resume writing professional.

Resume Writing Option 1: Do It Yourself

While the first option of writing your own resume is free, many people find the resume writing process overwhelming, frustrating, and time consuming, even with the support of templates and well-meaning family and friends. As uncertainties about content, formatting, keyword alignment, and current strategies crop up, many “do-it-yourselfers” turn to a professional after their efforts fail. In this case, independence can be a waste of time—and time is often of the essence when competing for a job alongside hundreds of other applicants.

Resume Writing Option 2: Hire an Online Resume Writing Company

The second option of hiring an online resume writing company is often easy, instant, and cheap, as there are thousands of online “experts” out there waiting to help immediately for an unbelievably low price. However, you get what you pay for, which is usually an ineffective resume remotely generated by an inexperienced, outsourced “typist” who plugs your information into a pre-set template. In this case, your unique challenges, background, accomplishments, and goals may be overlooked. You may wonder if a real person actually created your resume, and you may find yourself left with a generic, cookie-cutter resume that sounds just like everyone else’s in your field.

Resume Writing Option 3: Hire a Professional Resume Writer

The third option of hiring a professional resume writing consultant is usually the most effective and easiest way to accomplish your new resume. Although it costs more than the first two options and may take a bit more turnaround time to thoroughly complete the comprehensive process, using a professional resume writer comes with writing expertise, strategic analysis, customized content, and on-going communication.
