I have NEVER encouraged a candidate to pay for resume writing services. There is way too much info out there (google, anyone?) to warrant paying for that service. Especially for an unemployed person who needs to watch their expenses.
I feel the same way about housecleaning, too, though, so maybe it's just me.
I’m sure there must be good resume-writing services out there, but they seem to be rare. When I’ve looked at the example resumes that most of these services have online, I’ve been unimpressed from the actual substance of their makeovers to just general sloppiness, like spelling errors and inconsistent verb tenses. I have used more expensive services in the past, but didn't have the results that i did with top essay writing service. Maybe coincidence, but i don't think so.
