Those who have already faced the problem of developing one's resume within a tight deadline know that this challenge can't be easily handled on one's own. As a result, many choose to order resume writing services from professional resume companies online. This is not wrong, but sometimes it can cause much trouble if you have never had experience working with such companies before. Therefore, we decided to share some recommendations on how to effectively work with resume writing services. These tips will be based on our own experience as well as the experience of those clients who have worked with our company.
You're Not Done Yet After You've Paid
First and foremost, job seekers need to understand that having paid for the resume writing service isn't everything they should do in order to get a professional resume. This is a big mistake when people just leave everything to the company because the matter of the fact is they no one is capable of developing your highly effective resume without your participation. The very first thing you have to do after you have made the payment is to make sure the writer gets all the necessary information (applying job, educational credentials, professional experience, accomplishments, etc.). P
rofessional resume agencies will unlikely to start writing CVs if they have to make up the information because they know how employers hate when applications are lying. Secondly, for the most effective result, you have to be available for the contact. During the resume writing process, there might arise some questions and issues a writer will need to clarify. You may even inform the resume company about the time and means of contact that would be most convenient for you. Without interacting with a resume writing service it will be very hard to create a resume that would be attractive enough for employers to invite you for an interview.
Also, if you are not happy with the final result of their work you have to ask for revision. Most companies would edit your paper for free; all you have to is just ask to do it and provide specific instructions on what you want to be changed. Lastly, we advise you to learn and make use of all additional services that resume companies offer. There will likely be free add-ons as well as those for which you have to pay extra. For example, at Prime-resume.com we offer our customers the list of international and local employment agencies as well as interview tips absolutely free of charge. From the list of paid additional services, you can choose thank you letter writing, resume distribution, KSAs (for federal employment), and business-card resume. If you have ordered something try to ask for a discount. Most likely resume writing services won't be reluctant to give you one as to a returning customer.
