Why you should NOT use a resume template!

Many people are under the impression that they are the best person to write their own resume seeing as how it is their own career and qualifications that they will be talking about.  The Internet makes it easy to get hold of a resume template, which might seem reasonably professional in appearance, enabling you to simply insert your own information into it to create the finished resume.  Easy as that!  Or is it…

Does A Resume Template Do The Job?

Searching online for “Resume Template” will reveal up to half a million results in the UK alone offering either to let you download a resume template for free to purchase a resume template for a small (and sometimes not so small!) fee.

Click on ‘download’, or get your credit card out if necessary, and you will soon be ready to start inserting your personal information into that template.  Your winning resume is guaranteed!  Or so you might think…

Professional Resume versus Template Downloads

The first thing you should look at when considering these template downloads is who is offering this sort of advice?  Are they qualified to do so?  Our experience shows that even recruitment consultants can produce poor resumes; in fact, we currently work with many leading recruitment agencies to offer advice in this area.   As market leaders, The Resume Centre specializes in professional resume writing – it’s what we’re best at.  By choosing to work with The Resume Centre, rather than simply downloading a resume template, you will benefit from:

  • Our unparalleled reputation as Canada's leading resume consultancy
  • A highly skilled and trained team of resume writing professionals from various backgrounds
  • Extensive experience within our own, and related, sectors
  • Outstanding knowledge of the recruitment process, from graduates to senior executives
  • Guarantees that confirm our confidence in the service we provide compared with our competitors
  • Numerous testimonials, and recommendations, from hoards of highly satisfied customers!

Free Resume or Resume For a Fee?

So, our services may not be free, but we are confident that we can produce an extremely high quality, high impact resume which can achieve much better results than a resume template that you have filled in yourself.  You wouldn’t cut corners in a job interview so you shouldn’t don’t so with your resume!

Our clients include people from all industry sectors and at all different stages of their careers, from recent graduates to senior executives.  They are all looking to make a significant change in their professional lives and, as such, want their resume to help them to achieve the success they desire.

Can You Really Sell Yourself to Recruiters?

If, for example, you have been working as an office manager – or even a lawyer – for the past ten years, you will doubtless possess the skills and experiences required to carry out your job to the best of your abilities.  You will also be eager to ensure that potential employers who read your resume grasp the full nature of your experience.  But this does not necessarily mean that you have the skills required to write that exceptional resume to really sell yourself and consequently maximize your career potential.

The Resume Centre

To ensure that we deliver the best possible service to our clients, The Resume Centre employs a team of expert resume writers with experience in HR and recruitment and backgrounds in a broad variety of industry sectors.  To help create the best possible resume for you, we make sure that:

  • All our consultants pass a comprehensive induction course so that we can verify the quality of their work before hiring them
  • We assign your resume to a consultant with specific knowledge of your industry
  • Your consultant uses their experience to include only the most relevant and important information in your resume, and in the most effective way possible
  • We don’t use a rigid template, enabling us to tailor your resume precisely to your needs

With prospective employers having to sort through a vast amount of resumes for each advertisement they place, your resume must attract their attention immediately with both its appearance and its content.   The Resume Centre’s consultants know exactly how to do this.

How Much Will This Cost Me?

We are aware that, for many of our clients, cost is a major factor – and we also understand nobody will agree to pay for a service that they think they can get somewhere else for free.  That is why we make sure to offer a service that cannot be found for free – we will prepare you a unique, highly professional resume that is not simply a generic template with your information slotted in the right boxes.

Because of our market-leading position, we are able to offer prices that are truly competitive.  Some of the companies that will offer to sell you a resume template will charge fees almost the same as ours while expecting you to put in all the hard work!

Our fees start at just $71.00 and we are confident that you will see this as an investment in your future and an important first step towards securing the job that you wish for – and deserve.

Our Unrivalled Guarantees

Our major competitors are quite unable to offer you the same powerful guarantees that we can.  These are:

  • Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee: If you're not 100% happy, we will revise your resume until you are. Simple as that. Customer service is our top priority - always has been and always will be.
  • Our 100% Money-Back Guarantee: If, for any reason whatsoever, you decide you just don't want to take your order any further then we'll simply cancel it immediately and refund your money accordingly. No questions asked.

We’re able to offer you these guarantees because we know you’ll be delighted with your new resume.

An Unparalleled Reputation

The Resume Centre has achieved a well-earned reputation as the leading resume consultancy in the UK and has been featured in most of the national newspapers as well as numerous magazines and, in addition to regular participation in a variety of recruitment fairs as guest speakers, etc. we have also been the subject of a variety of television and radio broadcasts.  What we are most proud of, however, are the numerous testimonials from satisfied customers which are on display throughout our website.
