"Why do I need a résumé?"
In today’s competitive job market, you need an edge over your competition. A well written, professionally printed résumé is the first step in securing that all-important interview. Unfortunately, many qualified candidates are often overlooked because their résumés are poorly written.

"I always type my own."
With rising costs and problems obtaining good customer service, many people are "doing it themselves." With things like minor household repairs or auto tune-ups, it sometimes makes sense to do it yourself to get the job done as cheaply as possible. But as with major home and car repairs, there comes a time when a professional is needed.

Résumés typed on a typewriter often contain misspellings or grammatical errors and lack the look and feel of a quality, typeset résumé. They may also be lacking the powerful wording and style necessary to capture an employer’s attention. This type of résumé will probably not stand much of a chance against the competition.

Most human resources managers and recruiters receive thousands of résumés. They might spend a minute or less scanning each one, putting only a few selected résumés aside for more consideration. A professionally prepared résumé gives you an immediate competitive edge.

"I don’t need a résumé now—I already have a job."
The best time to work on your résumé
is while you are still employed.

Everyone in the work force needs a résumé. Whether you’re currently employed or not, there are several reasons why you should consider preparing a résumé now:

  • You never know when the next promising career opportunity will come along. You’ll need an up-to-date résumé to explore these possibilities.

  • Many companies now require employees to submit a résumé to be considered for promotions and transfers.

  • With corporate restructuring and uncertain economic times, it’s always a good idea to have an up-to-date résumé. Don’t wait until you find yourself unemployed to get your résumé together.
