Resume Writing

How to Start a Resume Writing BusinessBy Holly Reisem Hanna

A resume is a short history of a person’s work experience and skills. Professional resume writers use persuasive words, phrases, and formatting to create powerful images that sell a job seeker to a potential employer.

Starting your own home-based resume business is easy and startup costs are minimal. A good place to start is by taking a resume course and familiarizing yourself with the field. Next, obtain a resume certification to help establish your expertise. Many resume writers will have a college degree, but there is no specific educational requirement that a resume writer must have.

After completing some basic resume writing skills you will need to market your business. There are many different ways to do this, but start with building a website. Next get some business cards, update your LinkedIn profile, and utilize email marketing to get the word out. Many resume writing courses will offer tips and strategies for marketing your new resume writing business.

So if you’re good at proofreading, interviewing, and persuasive writing, becoming a professional resume writer may be the perfect work at home opportunity for you!
