Resume Templates - Just Say No!

For most people, the thought of writing themselves a new resume can be a very daunting one, especially in such a competitive job market.  So it is becoming increasingly common to turn to the Internet as a source of help.  You may think that, because it is your career and your qualifications that you are going to be including in the resume, then you are the best person to write it.  So all you need are some professional looking resume templates into which you can just drop your personal information and – problem solved!  Or so you might think…

Half a Million Resume Templates

If you search on Google for “Resume Templates”, you will get back close to half a million results in the UK alone, many of which offer “free resume formats” or “free resume templates”, etc. that you can download instantly – and for nothing!  Just like that!  Or other sites may charge you a small fee to access their resume templates.  Then, armed with your new templates, and the information you already know about yourself, you are ready to go and write that winning resume for yourself.  Easy!  Or is it…?

Do You Want an Unprofessional Resume or a Professional Resume?

When checking out the websites offering these resume templates, samples or formats, it is important to consider whether or not they are the best people to be offering you this sort of advice.  Even recruitment consultants often turn out poor quality resumes.  (Indeed, we work with many recruitment agencies to help them improve their standards on this front.)  Professional resume writing is a very specialist skill and one that The Resume Centre excels in.  We are the market leaders.  So how does downloading resume templates and writing your own resume compare with what The Resume Centre can offer you?

The Resume Centre provides a wide range of professional writing services that are backed up by:

  • Our unparalleled reputation as Canada's leading resume consultancy
  • A team of highly skilled and highly trained multi-disciplinary resume writers
  • Many years experience within our sector and within related sectors
  • In-depth knowledge of the recruitment process for everybody from graduates to senior executives
  • Guarantees that most of our competitors find very hard to match
  • A very long list of testimonials from highly satisfied customers!

So, the resume writing services offered by The Resume Centre may not be free but they are undoubtedly a considerably better option than getting your hands on some resume templates and trying to write your resume yourself.  A top quality, high impact resume that achieves the desired result takes a lot more than just some fancy templates.  When it comes to your career and your future do you really want to cut corners in this fashion?

A variety of people instead decide to use professionals like ourselves, and for a number of different reasons, from newly-qualified individuals looking to start promising careers to those wanting a change of career and individuals taking a step up in their careers.  They all have one thing in common – a desire to succeed and the determination to do what is necessary to achieve that success.

Do You Really Know What A Potential Employer Is Looking For?

Although you are indeed the person who has acquired all the knowledge and experience that you now have and need to include on your resume, are you necessarily the best person to actually write about it?  If you have spent the last ten years working as a project manager or a nurse, you will doubtless have a wealth of information at your fingertips that you are keen to relay to potential employers looking at your resume.  However, the skills required to be an outstanding project manager or nurse are very different to the skills required to write an outstanding resume.  You may consequently find that, when it comes to putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, you struggle to present your skills and experience effectively – to really do yourself justice.  Too many people sell themselves short on their resume and limit their career potential as a direct result.

The Resume Centre

The Resume Centre employs a team of resume writers with a broad range of experience acquired in HR and recruitment across a variety of industries and sectors.  In addition, they will each have passed a rigorous training programme to ensure that they possess the creative writing and design skills required to produce resumes of the highest possible quality.

Your resume will be assigned to a consultant with prior knowledge of your specific industry sector and they will use this experience to ensure that your resume is produced in such a way as to ensure that it attracts a recruiter’s attention. 

Your consultant will use their experience to ensure that only the most relevant and important information is included in your resume – and that this information is presented as effectively as it possibly can be.  Remember – potential employers may have to sift through many hundreds of resumes in response to each advertisement they place, so your resume has to be concise, easy-to-read and aesthetically pleasing.  Your consultant will know exactly what information they need to include on the resume and whereabouts within the document it is best placed.  They won’t be limited by rigid templates.  Everybody is different – and conforming to fixed templates will restrict your ability to really sell yourself.

Our Pricing

Yes, cost is undoubtedly a consideration when deciding how best to produce your resume.  Nobody is going to voluntarily pay for a service if they think that they can get the same service for free somewhere else.  That is why we at The Resume Centre make it clear to our clients that our service is not the same as you can get elsewhere.  We don’t just ‘type up’ your details and fit them into a generic template.  Preparing a truly professional resume is a lot more complex than that.

We pride ourselves on being at the very top of our field and yet, due to our market-leading position, we are nevertheless able to keep our prices extremely competitive.  Indeed, some of the companies that sell resume templates charge almost as much as we charge to do the whole job!

Our fees, starting at just $71.00 are a small investment in your future but one that is very sure to pay dividends.  They’re a tiny percentage of the future salary you are aiming for and our assistance will give you the very best chance of making sure you do actually get the job you want – the job you deserve.
