Resume writing service - Work From HomeBY: Sachin | Category: Business and Finance | Post Date: 2008-05-14
Resume writing is an ideal work from home profession for people who are good/fair in English and feel they have secretarial or administrative skills. It is a low cost profession and needs just a couple of hundred dollars to start with good results.
Almost everyone who has tried for a job knows that resume writing is very important. Most of us want someone else to do this job for us giving it a professional look with impressive words. It is from the resume that the employer makes his/her first impression of the candidate. It also plays a very important role in getting selected for the interview and the salary package.
The biggest mistake which almost every candidate does in job hunt is that they almost instantly start preparing for the job interview even before preparing a well thought out resume. That results is a lower success rate of how many interview calls one actually gets.
The first question which comes to the mind is how will I start this home based business. Writing resume is not a difficult job if some basic techniques are followed. The first step is to prepare yourself for the job which will require about 1-2 weeks of self training. Go to the nearest library or bookstore, get some latest professional resume writing books. Go to internet and find some free samples of resume and cover letters. These things will greatly help the basic knowledge needed to start this work from home business. You will also learn how to make good objective, headings, good formatting and presenting information more clearly and eye catching.
Did you know a typical employer who receives a bunch of resumes does not spend more than 10-30 seconds on deciding whether to shortlist or not. The resume should clearly tell the prior experience, education, expertise and more importantly why is the candidate a good choice to be hired. Once you have read the books on resume building you will get a good idea on how to write resumes. After writing think like an employer and ask yourself, "will I hire this candidate ?" if no, what can be added to improve the quality of the resume.
Next biggest question - How do I get people for this home based business?
The best is to start with your friends or other people you know and write a couple of resumes for free, they will be amazed by the difference it makes when information on their resume is presented more professionally. Get a few honest testimonials. Next, start running advertisement on local newspapers, close to the stores and eateries near the unemployment office / EDD. Think of the places most popular with people looking for job and put your advertisements around those places. If you are internet savvy then post your expertise on the web which can really be the best way to get people to reach you. Ask for referrals from people who have been benefited by your service and leave your business cards with people.
This work from home business can be quite rewarding, people charge anywhere between $50 to couple of hundred dollars depending on the kind of job for which the resume is being built, your quality of work and with experience your charges keep going up. You can earn possibly between $10,000 to $40,000 dollars or even more.
