Let’s keep this short and sweet. Take a look at these 3 categories. Chances are you fall into one of them. And if you do, hiring a professional resume writer could be an intelligent investment in your future.
1. You Are Tired Of Applying For Jobs (And Hearing Nothing Back).
You spent hours updating your resume in an effort to get it just right.
But instead of landing an interview, you received one of those “thanks, but no thanks” emails in return. Or even worse, just like Phil Collins, there was no reply at all.
What a frustrating and demoralising experience. And you can’t help but wonder what part of your application missed the mark.
Wonder no more. An executive resume writer can quickly perform an audit of your personal brand, identify the problem areas and fix them.
2. You Have A Complex Work History.
Here’s something you should know about recruiters.
They are, at the end of the day, salespeople who are trained to fit round pegs into round holes. Consider this square peg example.
You’ve spent the last 20 years splitting your time between running your own business, being a freelance sales consultant AND working as a Senior Sales Manager.
You apply for a Sales Director role at a medium-sized organisation.
You hear crickets.
No doubt, you could do the Sales Director job. You could probably do it better than someone with a narrow, straight sales background.
But, as a square peg, few recruiters will give you a chance to tell your story.
More than likely, you missed the cut because the recruiter shepherded along the cookie-cutter resumes from their pile—simply because it was easier, faster and less risky for them.

3. You Have More Important Things To Do.
You’re successful in your career, in part, because you strive for maximum impact. You make the most of your time. Which is why, when you need a new suit, you don’t learn how to weave and sew one.
You seek out a suit maker you trust.
So, why invest endless hours learning how to craft a resume yourself when you can simply hire an expert you trust? It makes so much sense when you put it that way.
Oh, and you’re welcome.
