Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
When it comes to landing new employment, most individuals are unwilling to leave anything to chance. This includes the construction of their resumes; indeed, savvy job seekers are willing to do whatever it takes to polish and refine their resumes and ultimately make them stand out and draw the attention of hiring managers. The question is, what are the best ways to make a resume shine? A newly-announced survey, from JobGoRound.com, provides some compelling insight.
JobGoRound.com is an online resource for job seekers, offering everything from job interview tips to job search tools—and resume writing and editing services, as well. The site also features regular surveys and polls, the most recent of which asks job seekers where they most often turn for help with their resumes. More than half of the respondents—55 percent—say that they turn to professional resume writers.
“This is really a staggering number, and it reveals just how in-demand professional resume writing services are,” remarks JobGoRound.com founder Jason Kay. “One might assume that professional resume writing services are kind of a last-ditch effort, but this is wrongheaded. The truth is, as this survey confirms, smart job seekers are more than willing to have their resumes professionally put together. Professional writers and editors can take a mundane resume and turn it into something all but guaranteed to attract hiring attention.”
The survey results also find that 18 percent of job seekers reach out to their friends and family members for resume advice; an additional 18 percent look to general websites and online career resources.
Perhaps surprisingly, virtually no survey respondent claims to use professional resume software. “The days of resume software do seem to be behind us,” Kay comments. “These days, going directly to a professional writer holds much more appeal than using automated software.”
In addition to these compelling survey results, JobGoRound.com also boasts a number of resources for those job seekers looking for the best resume writing and editing services. “There are numerous resume writing services out there, but not all are created equal,” Kay explains. “Our site offers reviews of some of the best ones, as well as some more general tips for writing effective resumes.
