Twenty years ago, people who were not confident in their ability to create a salable resume used resume ghost-writers. We often were not thrilled with the results because they took a cookie-cutter approach to a very personal series of events, your job history. Still they got people hired.
Fast-forward to current. Many job boards, which are very good at aggregating / centralizing jobs for applicants to see in one place with one search, are now becoming self-proclaimed “resume-creating experts.”
If you were to line up ten resumes, ten times out of ten any professional human resources professional could tell you which resumes came from a “resume-creating” job board. Eight times out of ten that resume would hurt your chances in the interview process. Simply put, they do not go into detail and tell your story; do not let them tell you otherwise.
As a headhunter, it becomes even harder to tell your story when it is very incomplete and lacking details (as well as formatting). Create your own resume and then attach that to your online application; any legitimate website should have that option.
You will be glad you did.
