I’ve heard a lot of people say it’s very bad to have someone write your resume for you, this belief is based on the belief that the individual writing the resume for you doesn’t know your achievements, educational qualifications and whatnot. While this may be true to some extent, it doesn’t make much sense when considered from a wider outlook. The truth is, you actually need a professional to write your resume/CV or cover letter.

Here are five reasons you don’t want to sweat around writing a horrible resume:

  • YOU’RE NOT GETTING INTERVIEWS ON YOUR OWN: You may be thinking, my work experience is impressive, my workplace skills are stellar but why am I still not getting any interviews? Save yourself the stress, let me explain it to you.

The reason may not be far from your sub-par resume. A professionally written resume has the potential to open many doors for you. This is because a professional knows what any human resource personnel searches for when looking at your resume. This knowledge could take you forever to get, so why spend all your time writing a resume that may never make it past a human resource personnel.

  • YOU ARE STUCK IN THE PAST: Have you ever looked at your resume and imagined how awesome it is? Sorry, but your resume may seem to still be written in a 1985 format to a hiring manager.

Like music and fashion, resume format fade out quite easily and must be written to conform to the latest style, from the quality of paper to the template used, your resume must reflect the current trend in the industry. This helps them get more than just a passing glance from your potential boss. A professional Resume/CV writer knows the style in vogue more than you do and would always write your resume to conform to the current style and ensure it reads and looks its best.

  • YOUR WRITING IS POOR: Not every profession deals with much writing, accountants and financial auditors for example are more concerned with figures than words, artisans are more concerned with arts etc. So, if you are struggling to express your previous work experience well, chances are, your writing would confuse your recruiter too.

Employing the services of a professional writer would ensure your resume/CV is written in plain and easy to understand language. He/she would be able to discern what needs to be on your resume (and what shouldn’t) and express it all professionally.

  • YOU HAVE ISSUES: You probably left your workplace so you could attend to a sick relative or take care of your family and now there exist a huge gap in your employment history. You may also be changing career fields and you are lost on how to overhaul your resume to reflect your skills to suit the new industry. While this may be an uphill task for you, a professional would be able to do this with ease, he/she would also be able to accentuate the positives on your resume and write away any negative aspects.
  • YOU ARE SHY: If you feel you are not the bragging type and despise having to write only your accolades and accomplishments in a resume, you might need an expert to help you through the writing process. Writing about yourself is the toughest assignments and it is always hard to criticize yourself so it’s no shame to hire someone to do it for you. A professional resume writer would be able to highlight your accomplishments because he/she would be looking at them with unbiased eyes.
