Can You Afford Not To Hire A Resume Writer?
Cutting expenses is essential when you’re out of work. I know. I’ve been there.
But, some things, like having a sharp interviewing outfit, are essential too.
You probably wouldn’t pull out a suit you wore 10+-years-ago. You probably wouldn’t forgo a manicure. You certainly wouldn’t cut your own hair to save money either.
But, many people feel it’s perfectly OK to write their own resumes.
After all, they’re on a budget and a resume crafted by a pro isn’t cheap.
So why not pull out that old resume, the one that worked just fine 5-years-ago, and just add on their most recent employment? After all the company names, dates of employment, and responsibilities are there.
Unfortunately, many people don’t understand that everything, including resumes, has changed.
