We have been in the resume writing business for a long time. With over thirty-five years of experience, we understand the complexities and importance of writing a resume catered to our clients. Our skills-based resumes are vastly different from other resume writing companies, and we take pride in the services and products we provide. With that, today we would like to discuss three questions you should ask when considering hiring a professional resume writer.
What are their credentials?
When you hire any professional, your first step should be to check their credentials and expertise. We suggest you start with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) as reviews are vetted, credible, and will help give you a clear picture of the business. We also recommend checking for proof of legitimacy by ensuring the business is licensed.
You can also read client testimonials on their website, or public Google reviews. Social media is another resource to seek out information, and what people are saying about the work that they do.
What services do they offer?
When looking at different resume writing companies, do some investigating on the services they offer. Often, there are hidden fees which can be frustrating and disappointing to deal with. For example, what is included in the price? Do they offer further support? Are their resumes templated? Be wary of companies that offer cookie cutter, templated resumes. These resumes are less likely to help you succeed, and aren’t well-suited for Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS).
If you have questions, or require further clarification, be sure to talk to someone within the company. If your calls are left unanswered, or you feel like you are getting the run around, it is best to move on to the next company. It is important to speak directly with the writer, and not the phone answering service. Having this connection is imperative to ensuring your wants, needs, and goals are understood and, ultimately, met by the company.
Where are they located?
Since business can easily run from anywhere in the world, you want to make sure you are dealing with someone who is local. It is important to hire a company that understands not only the industry in which you’re looking to work in, but who also understands the status quo for the area in which you plan to work.
We have had the opportunity to work with people from all over the world who have relocated to Alberta, and we take pride in the expertise we are able to offer.
