Why should I use a professional resume service?

We all have our own unique talents and desire to make a great first impression. When a pipe breaks we call a plumber. When we need legal advice we find a lawyer. We get results saving us a lot of trial and error, time and money. Sure, you can buy a resume computer program or read books on how to write your own resume. Every program and every book has its own slant and advice. How do you know what to accept and what to reject? We as professional resume writers know what works and what doesn’t.

To get that job you want takes a carefully thought out strategy to position you above your competition.  A professional resume writer knows how to target your resume to achieve maximum results emphasising your unique talents, achievements and accomplishments. We understand and know what to include and what to exclude in a resume. We understand what is current in all industries and fields. What was acceptable ten years ago was not acceptable five years ago; and what was the norm five years ago is not the norm today. Resume preparation is an ever-changing field.

Once the resume is completed, a professional career-marketing company such as RESUMES TO YOU knows what avenues to use to effectively market you. It may be assisting you with an online profile such as LinkedIn, contacting specific recruiters and/or networking. It may be developing a compelling cover letter to respond to an ad in a newspaper. Our knowledge and resources are endless – we take you by the hand to expedite your job search that encompasses far more than just writing a resume. We are true resume professionals who are dedicated to the field of jobseeker marketing.

Do I need more than one resume if I am applying for various types of jobs?

This really depends on how different the positions of interest and industries are. Your resume writer can certainly prepare 2 or 3 different versions if needed (fees apply) This is often useful for graduates who require a full-career CV and a CV for part-time employment. If you are pursuing opportunities within the same industry and job sector, then you should be able to use the same resume, just adjusting your cover letter for each application according to the position requirements.
