How to Answer Six Common Questions Jobseekers Ask Resume Writers 
[Originally published February 2014]
This month's Pass-Along Materials is based on a blog post I wrote called, I Showed The Resume You Wrote To My Friend And She Said... As a resume writer, there are certain questions we get asked that we should be prepared to answer. You don't have to use my wording exactly (although you are certainly welcome to — that's the whole point of Pass-Along Materials!) but you should be prepared to respond to clients who ask you these questions:

  • Why does a resume cost so much? (Also expressed as, “I can have Company X write my resume for $59. Why should I pay you $500?”)
  • I showed my resume to (my friends, my co-workers, my dog) and they said (insert generic criticism here). Can you change it?
  • Why are resumes written without pronouns? (This is also sometimes expressed as “I don't like how you left all the “I’s” out of my resume.”)
  • How long should the resume be? (Or, “I heard my resume shouldn’t be longer than one page.”)
  • How long should the resume be? (Or, “I heard my resume shouldn’t be longer than one page.”)
  • Why do I need my resume in multiple formats? (Or “What do I do with this ASCII file?”)
  • Why does my resume look different in Microsoft Word than it does as a PDF? (Or “I opened the resume and the formatting is all messed up.”)
