Resume is a candidate’s professional history on paper. So, who better to tell the story than the individual? However, to better explain the existence of resume writers, the fact that needs to be considered is the reason behind people using autobiographers. Autobiographers are used because, they are skilled in the art and science of telling someone’s story. The person in question provides content in terms of their personal story and history and it gets written into a beautiful masterpiece by an autobiographer.
The same applies for a resume. While no one knows your history like you do, there may be someone who can tell it better than you can. Resume writers are these professional story tellers. They turn your already outstanding work history, into a masterpiece. Resume writers should be consulted 1. If your resume is not at the best that it can be. 2. If you have had several unsuccessful attempts at job applications. 3 When you have a wealth of experience and you are not sure how to leverage them. One of the important things to note when deciding on a resume writer is whether they have a good understanding for your current situation and where you intend to go in your career. This will determine which kind of resume is applicable.
Since the pandemic struck, work as we know it has changed dramatically, making employees go above and beyond their responsibilities. As employees, while the goal is making the most out of your position for your personal gain, the interest of the company should also be at forefront of what you do. In a pandemic, going above and beyond, shows that you not only care about job security, but you value the company and are interested in its success. Should you be compensated for the extra work? I believe you should, but it may not be in a manner you might think. While asking for an increase in pay in the peak of the situation may put the employee in an awkward position, I suggest keeping track of all the extra responsibilities. These are valuable assets to bring with you during the time of annual evaluation.
