Top 5 Reasons You Should Hire a Resume Coach

In most of my 1v1 coaching meetings, the source of most concern and procrastination centers around one item....the resume.

Let's face it, if you've been out of work for awhile or if you've been in the same job for a number of years, chances are you don't have an updated resume or it's not that great...and the thought of working on yours is in itself, making you hesitant to even get are absolutely dreading it.

However, that resume is one of the most important pieces of your job search, so obviously, it needs to be great...better yet outstanding. It is obligatory. really, really, don't feel like working on it so you consider applying for new jobs with that outdated resume with hopes that someone on the other end will not pay much attention and reach out to you anyway for that interview. Only they probably won't.

Which brings me to the top 5 reasons you should consider hiring a resume expert

1. You don't have the motivation to update your resume

Working on a resume is tough work. It's not simple. It takes time to write an awesome resume. It's easy to procrastinate and not do it. Hiring someone to help, who actually enjoys writing resumes, saves you time and stress.

2. You are new to the job market or are a career-shifter

How do you make up for lack of experience on a resume? How do you highlight your skills for that new career? If you're having trouble answering these questions, you probably could use some professional help. If you are a recent graduate or want to get into a new line of work, a good resume coach can optimize your experiences, uncover transferable skills, and help reach your target audience.

3. You are not a writer

Most people aren't great writers. And when it comes to resumes, they have a hard time articulating their experiences and skills the proper way to come across as the best candidate. Resume writers and coaches are skilled in this area. They are experts at highlighting your accomplishments and helping you to stand out.

4. You are not getting the results that you want

You have the experience, education and skills, but you are not getting interviews. What is the issue? Resume professionals work with you to analyze your resume and uncover potential roadblocks that may be preventing you from getting noticed and attraction attention.

5. It is a cost-effective way for a big ROI

This is a cost-effective way to bring value and impact to your job search when compared to the pitfalls of going it alone. A good resume can immediately affect your chances of landing a better paying position in a shorter period of time, with less stress and wasted hours on your end.

So if you are contemplating your next career move or entering the job market altogether, be sure to consider hiring someone to help you with your resume, especially if this is a cause of concern and frustration for you. It will ease your stress, make you stand out amongst the crowd, and increase your chances of landing that dream job.
