We all ask ourselves this at some point in time, "Do I need resume help or not?" Why do we ask this? Because we all go through career changes in life and we want to land that next job. However, let me ask you this? If you wanted to have a procedure done, would you go to a doctor or do it yourself? If you needed a new roof on your house, would you hire a roofer or do it yourself? So, why is it different with resumes? Why are you trying to do someones else's job in which you're not trained for? Why are you writing your resume yourself? I know this is a hard stance to take, but we need to admit when we need resume help. Many Human Resources professionals constantly complain that the resumes they look at every day are in deplorable conditions!

Why You Need Resume Help!

If you can agree with the analogies that I wrote above then we can agree that maybe resume help wouldn't be the worst thing. As I have said in previous articles and as countless other website studies have proven, recruiters and HR professionals spend on average six (6) seconds looking at a resume. If your resume does not capture their attention, guess what? You need resume help! Six seconds!! You are leaving the fate of your potential dream job to six seconds and not only that, you asked for no help because you thought you knew how to write a resume. Why wait for the rejection letter to realize you need resume help?

Not Enough to Convince You?

Is my argument not strong enough? Here is another one for why you need resume help. Can you describe the difference between a technical, chronological, functional, targeted and hybrid resume? If not, then why are you writing your own resume? Once again...you need resume help!

I know this is a hard-hitting stance I'm taking, however, there is no reason why you shouldn't land your dream job. The resume is the first impression you make of yourself to a potential employer. They will either think highly or poorly of you, so why take the gamble? Resume help is everywhere and more importantly, resume help is right here!!

What Specific Areas In A Resume Need Help?

If you can agree that you only have about six seconds to make an impression, that means the top half of your resume needs to be bulletproof! This is your objective/summary, skills, areas of expertise, accomplishments, etc... While no two resumes are the same, you need someone to determine what sections you need resume help with. Let's use an example such as the objective/summary. There is always an on-going debate on whether to use an objective or summary and there is no golden answer as it "depends". It depends on your career status, profession, industry, employment status, etc... With some resume help, you could figure out which one is best for you and your particular situation.
