And you need to really look at the skills of the writers. We use people with a lot more experience than the average writer and we still don't charge anywhere near that amount.

I personally charge slightly less than the average so I can remain competitive. I can do that because the cost of living here on the west coast is a lot cheaper than the cost of living on the east coast. I am guessing this is why I pull so many east coast clients. Jennifer Best in Vancouver, Washington said: I was just giving the proper industry average I am sure you are worth it: It's just that resumes are such simple things to create and cover letters are even easier.

If you are a good writer then it does not take much time to create them. And a lot of writers simply use a template and charge a fortune for it.

Angella in Edmonton, Alberta. The problem is - and I do agree that you know your abilities best - it can sometimes be difficult to objectively view yourself.

I am tentatively branching out into resume writing after years of reviewing resumes both professionally and for friends.

I prepared my own resume obviously and get great response and compliments on it. I doubt a resume writing service could improve upon that. Having said that, after years of reviewing others resumes I have found that often they either don't identify what is great about themselves and it can be like pulling teeth to get that information from them , fill their resumes with inconsequential fluff that completely buries the relevant information, use words that convey a lack of confidence in their abilities or send out resumes that, even when you read from start to finish, you reach the end and still have no idea what they are capable of.

And don't even get me started on the objectives! Everybody wants to "get a great job where they can use their skills and experience for the employer's benefit".

Resumes have seconds to get the reviewer's attention. Every single word needs to be targetted and relevant, or it's taking away from what is important and relevant. And that includes your objective. Personally, I hate objectives - but that seems to be what is looked for now, so if it must be there I am in the camp that, yes, if you can do it yourself definitely do so!

But most people just can't. Also wanted to mention - when talking to a potential resume writer - that resume writer should be able to tell you exactly why your resume is not getting results. If they cannot, then they are merely resume reformatters and unlikely to have any real results.
