    Using a resume writing service can be both a blessing, but it can also be a hindrance (if you don’t hire the right person). I am a resume writer but the truth is… using a resume writing service does not make sense for every job-seeking situation. If you are an active job seeker – it may make more sense to learn how to write your resume because you are going to have to tailor it for each position you apply for.

But what I can tell you is this… Have you ever heard the saying looking for a job is a full-time job? It’s because it’s true! The amount of time you spend…
