Top Resume Writing related questions

Resume writers create professional resumes, cover letters, and job applications. They usually have a background in writing, HR, or recruitment, and are skilled at explaining how an applicant’s skills can transfer to new roles.
A resume is a 1-2 page summary of your qualifications and work experience, outlining your background and what you bring to a particular role. The term CV (Curriculum Vitae) is often used interchangeably, but it actually refers to a longer document (usually for academic or research roles), detailing everything you’ve done academically and professionally.
Your resume should include all the information relevant to the role you’re applying for: your contact details, qualifications, employment positions, relevant skills, projects you’ve worked on, and referee contact details. You don’t need to include your marital status, photos, religion, or family information.
When you think about the potential income and career boost you could get from a new role or promotion, a professional resume can quickly pay for itself. If you lack the time or confidence, have employment gaps, or are moving into a new field, then a professional CV or resume can mean the difference in whether or not you secure a role.
The easiest way to find a resume writer service near you is on Airtasker. Simply post your task, check the ratings and reviews, then choose the best professional resume writer who fits your budget.
Resumes can take anywhere from 2-6 hours to write, depending on the position level (executive vs entry) and whether you’re going after multiple positions. This includes time spent editing, following up details, and tailoring it to the specific role.

Suggested reads about Resume Writing

What do resume and cover letter writing services include?

Resume and cover letter writing services usually include a writer optimising your background and experience details, choosing the best format, creating a polished layout, and proofreading your finished resume and creating a cover letter. While the exact process and details may vary from writer to writer, here’s what you can expect:

Introduction to your work history and setting career objectives

Your Tasker starts by getting to know your career goals, work experience, skills, values, and more. This introduction helps them capture your voice and align with your vision for your new resume. This part may also include reviewing your current resume.  

For the cover letter, your writer may add more personality, depending on the culture of the company you’re applying to. This will be more detailed, so your writer can ask you a series of questions to determine what you want to do with your CV and cover letter, then place the correct information to achieve your objectives. 

Choosing the right resume format

The most common structure is the reverse-chronological format. This type of resume is focused on work experience and is ideal for those getting promoted from role to role. While it is familiar to potential employers, it isn’t very creative.

Your Tasker may choose the functional format, which helps first-time job seekers, those with employment gaps, or those who want to shift careers. It zeroes in on skills and minimises career history. Some may also recommend the more uncommon combined format, which is excellent for those with experience, want to shift careers, and have many transferable skills. 

Drafting a detailed resume and cover letter (work experience, skills, education)

Next, your Tasker fills in the other sections of your resume. For work experience, this will include the past 15 years and the most relevant roles. Each bullet will have your job title, location, dates employed, key responsibilities, key achievements (including action words and numbers), and keywords. Don’t forget to tell your Tasker about any awards or extracurricular activities you did. The skills section should include hard skills (e.g. social media analytics, graphic design) and soft skills (e.g. adaptability, leadership). Your Tasker will include only the skills that are relevant to the job you’re after.

You may want to include other items on your resume such as hobbies, interests, volunteer work, internships (for entry-level job seekers), awards and certifications, languages, projects, and publications. After your resume is done, your hired cover letter writer can proceed to write the cover letter and summarise these details while highlighting your milestone achievements.

Proofreading your new resume and cover letter

Finally, your Tasker proofreads your resume and cover letter - from the spelling of your name to your contact details to every company name or employment date. Then, your writer can also make your cover letter brief but enticing enough. As the final step, your writer can send you drafts on which you can suggest edits—this continues until you are satisfied with the result. 

Now that you have your resume and cover letter, why not learn the basics of business writing yourself? You can also use our platform to find a hairdresser to give you a fantastic new haircut or book a driver to take you to the interview!
