How To Hire A Resume Writer, a blog post by Rebecca Francoline of Go Write2Hire, a resume service, Linked In expert and interview coach.

who should be writing your resume?

Who is the best person to write your resume? Is it someone who has worked in your industry or someone that has been in the position you are targeting? Should it be someone who knows you personally or someone that you just met?

A good resume writer is first and foremost someone who listens to you! A resume is representing you and your accomplishments, so a good writer needs to understand these by asking pointed questions and actively listening.

A great resume writer will then take your current resume, pages of notes from your conversations, and targeted job postings and create an expertly crafted and concise resume that immediately makes you think “I would hire me”.

An outstanding resume writer is educated in the recruitment process and applies specific writing techniques to make your resume a tool that works for you. It needs to be effective with applicant tracking software (ATS) systems and the human reader.

Your resume writer should be all of these and a partner during your job search. This is what you will find at Go Write2Hire.
