Even the best professional resume writer is not a mind reader. He or she cannot assemble the raw materials - the details of your background - without significant input from you. What you will soon discover is that this can be the most time consuming task of all. In other words, you are going to be put to work by the resume writer. And among the resume writing stages and tasks, this fact collection process can be the most time consuming.
Another option is to use a resume template to create your resume. These templates are great because they will provide you with a format for your resume. It will guide you through the process so that you are including the appropriate information and are presenting it in a way that will get you noticed. There are many styles to choose from so you can have the final say on the presentation of your resume. While this is a fairly quick way to come up with the format for your resume, it will require that you can work within the constraints of the resume template.
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?
