Having trouble with your job search? Well it might have nothing to do with anything. Instead, it's your resume that's at fault. If this is the case, you might want to consider going with one of the many resume writing services available to you online. However, it's important to pick a good one, so here is how to differentiate a good from a bad resume writing service.

1.      Good resume writing services offer a lot of features

Resume writing services need to have a lot of various features in them. The resume needs be a certain length, include sections like work experience, education, introduction, and skills. It needs to also be industry specific, because your resume will be written differently depending on your career. It's also important that your resume is optimized for applicant tracking systems. Applicant tracking systems scan your resume and then grades them. The resume writing service you pick has to include all the features mentioned and more, if available.

2.      Bad resume writing services are either too cheap or too expensive

Yes, that's right. If a resume writing service is too cheap, then it's likely not a quality service, and that's true in regard to most things you buy in life. Cheap prices means cheap labor, and the only resume writers who are willing to work for such low wages are those who are likely less qualified and less skilled at writing your resumes. Then on the flip side, too expensive resume writing services are simply up charging you at ridiculous levels. It doesn't take a company $1000 to write a resume. There's no cost of goods involved, and no one is really that much better at writing a resume than another competent resume writer so it's all just marketing hocus-pocus to a certain level.

3.      Bad resume writing services have quick turnaround times

It's weird, because most people want to get their resumes back as soon as possible, but that can actually be a bad thing. It shows that the writers don't spend a lot of time with each client and obviously the more time you spend, the better off the resume will usually be. So, if you see writing services advertising 24 hour turnaround times, beware. They are likely just rushing the job and you won't get the resume you're hoping for.

4.      Good resume writing services are harder to find than bad ones

In general, there are more low quality resume writing services out there than high quality ones. Anyone can start a resume writing service and this has led to a lot of hacks entering the industry. However, with that in mind, there are a lot of legitimate resume writing services out there that can really do a good job with your resume, and it can change your career for the better like crazy. It's just important to make sure to find one that you are confident in and that would get the job done the way you want it.
