Currently trying wholeheartedly to figure out the best way to have my resume built professionally. If possible recommend a service/writer (affordable) that you may have used, or have come across recently, and, or in the past?

Can’t you google for some good examples in your field of work, then rewrite to make the wording your won?

You don’t need to have someone write a resume for you. Look at most University’s Web sites and you should be able to find resources to help. Use InDesign to format/design it if you’re applying to a job that wants evidence of your graphical prowess, otherwise just use word and follow the guides. Just remember to avoid overwriting, use active verbs (Designed, Promoted, Created, Organized, Brainstormed), bullet entries under positions sorted first by overarching employer, than by position, then by date, and put your Education LAST.

What’s your specialty? If it’s something small businesses can use, you could try trading your services for resume writing services with a resume writer/career coach professional.

Write to several on LinkedIn offering a trade, and you might get a sparkly new resume in exchange for a few hours’ work… along with a contact who just so happens to know how to land great jobs!
