Why You Shouldn't Use a Resume Builder

Resume Builders Are Like Cookie Cutters

We are all born and raised, encouraged to pursue our uniqueness in an ever-widening and ever more challenging landscape. As the difficulty of landing that dream job spirals out of control year by year it is easy for us to lose sight of our goals - simply a career that is ideally both stimulating and rewarding. We here at The Resume Center have spent close to two decades helping people on to the path toward their dream jobs and we certainly would not recommend a Resume builder as a part of that approach.

Bosses Spot Them a Mile Away

Anyone who reads through tens or even hundreds of Resumes every day can, at a glance, tell the difference between something hand-crafted and something generated by a builder. The people who take the time and effort to write every word and lay out & template the document themselves are very often the kind of candidates a recruiter will prefer to go on to hire.

They Don't Cover All The Bases

Every territory, industry and role differs in its own unique way. Sometimes it's mandatory to provide a photograph, in other cases not. Resume builders offer a set template for you to fill in that does not cover the specific nuances of the role you are pursuing.

They Do Not Represent You

A strong introductory paragraph - your career objective - often makes or breaks a Resume. We are all tempted to write the same old spiel about being hard-working, diligent and willing to learn. An experienced Resume writer and career coach will be able to help bring out your true qualities and will infuse the leading objective to the extent that it is oozing with personality. The strongest candidates will also tailor their Resumes for each individual company and role they apply for - cutting, pasting and rewriting text to increase relevance. People can often find it hard to see the wood for the trees when working on their Resume alone - in these cases a little help from a real, experienced person can go a long, long way.
