Cons of using a Resume Writing Service

If many people use the resume writing service that you have hired, the employer might be able to recognize their style and may simply overlook your resume.

Sometimes it is important to be concise, and other times being a bit more vague would have been a better option. For instance if you say you want to achieve a certain sales percentage, your potential employer might believe you are underachieving if he or she had a higher number in mind. It's all a matter of perspective and timing.

Your resume writing service can make the mistake of providing a very generic resume, and if you are unfamiliar with resume writing you might not even notice. If it appears as if you are handing the same resume to every single company, you most likely will not get the job.
This is not to say that you should not try a professional resume writing service. It is however to say that you need to be careful and make sure that you are choosing a decent service that has your best interest at heart. Sometimes such a thing can be very difficult to find, and that being said, you should take your time, ask questions, and ensure that you are getting the best resume for your money.
