Data Generation: An experienced résumé writer can help you prepare for the interview process while building résumé e content by asking insightful questions to uncover and reframe your accomplishments and job duties.

Compelling Content: An astute writer is aware of industry-specific keywords that are searched by scanning software as well as HR screeners.

  4. Ask about his/her background and training, and how he/she stays abreast of changes in the employment industry.
  5. Have the writer explain his/her rrésumé development process. You may be asked to fill out questionnaires, talk on the phone for an hour or more, and/or do some revising yourself.
