One of the curious aspects of running a professional writing resume business, is the number of people who ring and don’t leave a message. Resume writers don’t bite.
We get about two calls a day who hang up once they received the OGM. If you leave a message, you’ll get a call back. If you email us, you’ll get an email back within 24 hours.
It’s a curious psychological phenomenon. People take comfort in the fact they ‘tried’ to contact someone who will help them get a job. Rather than actually contacting someone.
Low confidence and poor communication protocols can be major blockers when looking for work or a promotion.
Another curious aspect is the number of resume businesses (most are franchises out of Sydney and Melbourne) who offer ‘packages’. They ask for $400 or $500 paid in advance for a resume, LinkedIn site and a generic cover letter. They're 'all-in-one' jobs. Like those ads on TV selling steak knives.
It’s odd because what happens if you just want a resume written or updated?
Did you know that generic cover letters are pretty much useless? They should be tailored to a specific position.
If you’re working in line manufacturing or as a labourer, you need a LinkedIn site like a chocolate teapot needs hot water.

At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.
