In a prior blog we discussed what to expect when you hire Resumes with Results as your professional resume writer. Our goal is providing the best service possible and arming our clients with a uniquely crafted resume that will help land the job you aspire to.

Today, we talk about what you should do when hiring a professional resume writer and the red flags you should be aware of.

Knowledge is power

When hiring a professional resume writer, ensure you find someone who not only understands how to write a high-quality resume but who also has knowledge or experience of the subject. When you work with Resumes with Results, our writers offer a vast amount of knowledge and experience in a plethora of industries. We are not typists. We are wordsmiths who work to understand what your objectives are, and how best to market you.

Shop around

We encourage people to research other resume writing companies and compare the various services and prices. Determine which resume writing company would serve you best. Make the distinction of what services are charged and what is not. The price of a resume can be an investment, but having to add additional fees on top of the resume fee, can be large. Determine which company can best market your skills effectively, the time frame required, and what additional services are offered at no additional charge. If fees are added to services needed, such as: cover letters, LinkedIn Profiles, etc., then the final total for the resume writing project, can be substantial. Resumes with Results only charges for the resume. We do not upsell or charge for additional services, thus not enlarging the final fee for the resume.

Reputation matters

Before you visit a restaurant for the first time, what is the first thing you do? For many people, they will check reviews online and on social media. They may even ask a friend or family member who has visited. We recommend you do the same prior to hiring a professional resume writer. The best resource is the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Reviews are vetted, credible, and will give you a clear picture of the business you are considering. We also recommend checking proof of legitimacy and ensure that the business is licensed with the city.

Protect your investment

Be wary of companies that demand full payment up front. In some instances, money is collected, and the product is never delivered, or a subpar document is provided and now you find yourself stuck with a less than impressive resume and you are out of your hard-earned cash. It is also important to ensure there are no hidden fees. For example, many businesses will charge extra for LinkedIn profiles or for additional editing time.

We know there are many options to choose from when picking a professional resume writing company. At Resumes with Results, we are confident and successful in the services we provide and the relationships we build with our clients.
