Is it worth paying for a resume writing service?

I have been in my current job as a financial advisor for 8 years and my resume is very dusty. Am better off rewriting it Myself or will paying a professional be a big benefit.

    Pay a professional only if you’re too lazy to rewrite your resume or you don’t know how .

    NO NO NO. There is nothing they will tell you that a good employment specialist at your local employment agency won’t. Most of them even have classes on how to write resumes that you can go to for free.

    Just be aware that with so many people out of work right now, a good resume is very important, but it is even more important to get someone at the company to recommend you. Do some google searches on networking for job seekers to get ideas on how to do that. A great way to start is to make a list of everyone you know who has a job, and then ask them if their companies are hiring, or if they know of anywhere that is. Believe it or not, 60-80% of people who get hired do it through knowing someone.

    A lot of the work can be done by yourself. But if you seriously need help definitely use a resume writing service. But often ties, a second set of eyes is all it takes. There was this site that I checked out, and they looked over my resume for me and it was way cheaper than paying someone to write the whole thing for me. I don’t know about you but I seriously couldn’t drop close to $100.
