Lets say that you pay someone to prepare your resume for you. A bit painful to your pocketbook, but maybe not so bad depending on your budget. The problem is, in todays highly competitive job market, you will need to do everything you can to increase your odds at landing a job favorable to your career. That includes tweaking and tuning your resume as the situation dictates.
As an example, lets say at your current job you have been called on to handle a wide range of tasks - and you have carried them out exceptionally well. The problem is, you may not want to list all of those responsibilities in a single resume. That might give the impression that you are not focused on any particular expertise and that may put you at a disadvantage. Better to research what skill sets and what role the company you are interested in is looking to fill. Then, tune your resume accordingly. Takes more time? Yes. Gets better results?
The first way, and possibly the most difficult, is to create your resume from scratch. This can be a challenge because you do not want to submit a resume that is boring and that will not catch the eye of the hiring staff. If you write your own resume be sure that you come up with a unique presentation of your information and that you do not have any errors in spelling or grammar. When employers see a resume that is sloppy and that has errors on it they are very likely to turn it over and continue looking at the other resumes that were submitted.
