I have over 15 years of experience as a technical writer. I am currently studying to be a copywriter. I see resume writing as a wonderful marriage of the two disciplines.
Like technical writing, a resume must be written concisely, keeping only the necessary words and ideas. And like copywriting, the resume must be written in a compelling manner to effectively advertise the client to a company or recruiting agency. For both disciplines, accuracy is of paramount importance. In the case of resume writing, one mistake can cost the client the job.
I joined as a member because I want to learn to be an excellent resume writer so that I can provide my clients the best possible service to help them secure the job they want.
As soon as I get the opportunity, I will pursue the resume strategist certification. I look forward to meeting as many of you guys as possible, both online and in person.
