Many job seekers are better off if they make a free resume themselves instead of paying a service to write it. The first reason for this is obvious: Cost. Professional resume writers are expensive, costing in some cases, hundreds of dollars for a resume. Most job seekers, even if they are currently employed and looking to upgrade their career, simply don't have that kind of money laying around to spend on job search services. But there is another reason as well: Quality. With the application of a little bit of time and energy, it's possible for the average job seeker to make a free resume even better than a professionals.
The reason that you can make a free resume as good as one that costs hundreds of dollars is the simple fact that you know your job history and qualifications better than a stranger does, no matter how professional that stranger might be at writing resumes. And in the case of resume writing, that job history and experience and accomplishment knowledge is the key to writing a resume which gets the interview and the job. Considering the high price that the professionals pay for their time and writing services, it makes a lot more sense for you to teach yourself how to arrange your knowledge into an effective resume than it does to teach a professional all the relevant aspects of your job history and accomplishments.

There is a third reason why you should make a free resume instead of paying a professional writer to do the job for you. When you write your resume correctly, you spend a good deal of time and energy thinking and researching about your target job, considering your skills and qualifications, and analyzing the way that the two of those match one another. This thought and research does more than create a quality resume which gets the results you want. It prepares you for the job interview that you will get as a result of the resume that you make. When you go in and talk to the hiring manager, you will have a clear sense of what the job entails and the kids of thing that you have done in your career to date which prove that you can do what that job entails. Just about every interview will ask you a question about these things.
So once you've decided to make a free resume, what's the next step? Reading this website and others like it is a good start, as is investing a little bit of money and time in quality instruction about the theory and practice of writing great resumes. Then, once you've gotten started learning, start doing. As a general plan, it's a good idea to write a specially customized resume for each target position that you apply to, so you'll have plenty of chances to practice.
