Increase your worth by 7%? You heard that right!
A new research study by TopResume indicated that professionally written resumes not only perform better than DIY documents but increase your worth. Another perk? You land faster.
I find this anecdotally with my clients as well. A recent client doubled his salary after our collaboration.
TopResume's findings uncovered that recruiters perceive candidates with professionally written resumes to be worth 7% more than those without them.
Of those candidates, 68% secured that job within three months of having their resume professionally written and 42% of them moved on to a higher-level position.
So, what should you look for in a resume writer? Make sure your resume writer:
➜ Understands your career goals.
High-performing resumes are written toward your job target. Writers author documents for robots (ATS) scanning for keywords AND to win over human readers.
➜ Asks good questions.
Your resume writer needs to dig deep for quantitative and qualitative metrics in addition to understanding your unique competitive edge in the market.
➜ Educates you on the process.
Hiring a resume writer is an investment in your career. Ensure you understand and are on-board with their process as they vary among writers.
