The Most Frustrating Part of Being a Resume Writer

September 27, 2009 at 12:00 am Leave a comment

I find the most difficult part about being a resume writer is educating people what a resume could and should look like.

Because everyone has had a resume at one point or another – and often several resume versions – most job seekers feel they know all there is to know about how to write a resume.

My own dear family are a case in point. I have offered on a number of occasions to write a resume (free naturally being my family) for an extended family member, however, each have declined politely saying it was ok as they had already written one. They have never seen the style of resumes I write and are just as much in the dark as the general public.

When many of our own educational and government institutions are also in the dark with the advice they provide students on compiling a resume, why would the general public think any differently.

If you want to know what a professional resume can look like, email me at beverley@d-scriptivewords.com and I will be only too happy to email you an example no obligation, no hassle, no follow-up.

Here’s to writing powerful resumes.
