My father taught me a good life lesson. You get what you pay for.
I'm sure you can get a resume for cheap. I know without doubt that it's possible to write your own resume and get a great job with it.
In the end, though, there's no substitute for good help. And that costs some money.
Why pay more for a best-of-breed professional resume and cover letter writer? Because you want a best-of-breed job. You can try to pay less, but you won't get best-of-breed.
You're likely to pay several hundred dollars (and it could be anywhere from $150 to $900) for a best-of-breed professional resume and cover letter writer. That cost buys you time. Time is money. The math is a no-brainer.
If you had a job that paid you $4,500 gross every month in salary, and you contribute 5% to your 401(k), you're losing a little more than $0.34 every minute you're unemployed. Just pennies, right? Wake up! You're job search costs you $3,442.50 per month. You got that kind of money?
A professional can shortcut your search time by days, weeks, or months. In some cases, you can job offers within hours of distributing your resume online. If you start getting a nice paycheck even five days. . . one workweek. . . sooner than you would have without professional help, you more than pay for the most expensive professional resume writer I've seen online in quite a while.
Let that sink in. Five days. Can you do that by yourself? I rather doubt it, no matter how good you are. Professionals can move fast, without compromising quality.
I've heard the protests about cost before. They boil down to three:
- I don't have the money, you don't want to spend the money, you don't think it's worth the money.
- I don't want to spend the money.
- I don't think it's worth the money.
If you don't have the money to spend, you don't have a job that pays you well enough. Is waiting around going to get you a better one?
If you don't want to spend the money, or you don't think it's worth the money, you're missing the point. The superior job you can get when you use professional help will pay you back! And then some.
