I joined the corporate field as a Recruiter, after gaining nitty gritty understanding of the industry my focus shifted to resume writing. During the interview I was asked “You have completed Bachelors in ECE, still why do you want to become a resume writer?”
Unlike any job seeker I gave a scripted answer back then. But after 10 years of working in this line I know why “To Help People – Be Their Friend In Need”
While working with clients across the globe, I have noticed that there are some countries who follow certain rules and are much aware about résumé writing standards than few other developing nations. From my experience I can say India falls under the latter category, herein most job seekers find this exercise to be a waste of time and money. Also, with the amount of fake jobs and related services floating in the market, one thinks twice before moving forward. Unemployment here is a major social issue and people are really desperate to hit the right cord and land a suitable job.
With a handful of certified writers in India, job seekers are not aware about the benefits of hiring one. Now along with writing resumes I have introduced other related services which will help my clients throughout all phases of the career lifespan. I often give webinars to students and women, educate them about the importance of resume writing and other career related service.
