professionally written Resume`

  • We had an issue with background services between march 10th and 15th or there about. This meant the payment services were not linking to automatic upgrades. If you paid for premium membership and are still seeing ads please let me know and the email you used against PayPal and I cam manually verify and upgrade your account.
  • We have been getting regular requests for users who have been locked out of their accounts because they have changed email adresses over the lifetime of their accounts. Please make sure the email address under your account is your current and correct email address in order to avoid this in the future. You can set your email address at https://silvertails.net/account/account-details
  • Wwe are currently experience some server issues which I am working through and hoping to resolve soon, Please bare with me whilst I work through making some changes and possible intermittent outages.
  • Apologies all our server was runing rogue. I managed to get us back to a point from 2:45 today though there is an attachment issue i will fix shortly. Things should be smooth now though

has anyone ever used these services, had the CV written professionally?

If so was it worth the money?

I personally haven't used one but a mate who recently got retrenched did and he reckoned he had to do most of the work himself.

What are they charging?

A professional resume gets you in the front door so if the charge isn't over the top then it would be worth it.

Thats the idea, I have only ever been to 1 interview where i was not offered the job, so its getting my foot in the front door.

It costs about $200 I am thinking it is probably worth the expense

thats what i am thinking, the payout from my options should go down nicely for it too!

Considering you're a hairdresser Dan. Are you planning on getting into IT?


Stylist is a more apt description since I never have and never will cut hair. but damn can I style mine!

It'd be worth it for the $200 Dan.

Just make sure they put enough into presentation and visuals to give it "cut through".

It pays to be "remarkable" when looking for a job, doesn't it Wheel?

Some advice. I looked into this a while ago. I spoke to my sis who is HR manager for a large multinational and she advised me against it. Recruiters can spot them a mile away and view it more as laziness than anything else.

thanks for the head up. I still might go through with it as my CV is a mess at the moment and want to maximize the potential

Clon - ive had the same advice from someone in the same position. They also added the best thing to do is get as many resumes as you can and copy the things that you think are good.

I followed the advice above and I landed my current job on my resume alone - i was the only 1 interviwed and only 5 mins before being offered the job. Didnt even apply for it.

Basically on the front page you need to win the job - have your job skills in point form for quick understanding is the underlying rule i think.

Yeah I know all of the tricks and tips for a cv and mine is fairly good now, but think for $200 it could benefit from being jazzed up a bit

Its clean and has some good content, but it could do with being a lot neater. Its landed me a lot of interviews in the past, but on my salary $240 is well worth the cost if just to see if it improves

P.S. yes you are correct, Friday afternoon is the most boring time of the week
