Resume Writing Software

Another option for resume writing is to use one of the many resume writing software programmes on the market. If you decide to use resume writing software, you should make sure that it can do exactly what you want it to do. Make sure the program you use has several templates, formats and forms so that you can get your resume to look exactly as you want it to. The better resume writing software will also include extras such as a spell checker and thesaurus. The better programmes include Winway Resume Deluxe 12 - Box , ResumeMaker Career Edition and Resume Works Pro which are reasonably priced but some programs can go up to as much as $300 dollars.

There are also many sites out there that offer resume writing services such as Monster.com and Yahoo! HotJobs but before you spend money on their services you should consider the following:

  • Is their website professional? Always do a background check on a website you’ve never heard of
  • How much are you willing to pay for a resume writing service? Is it worth spending more money to get a better service?
  • Are they certified to write a resume? They should have some credentials, testimonials or reviews of their services
  • Before you pay get an idea of the type of work that they can do. Ask for a sample resume
  • Ask how their resume writing process works; do they use automated software to generate a resume for you or will a real human write the resume for you?
