Well, if you pay someone to write your CV it could go against you for two important reasons;
– If you pay a professional company to write your resume, it’s probably going to be full of generic clichés that are used by these companies.
If this happens it’s very possible the Hiring Manager will spot this a mile off and reject your application due to that.
This document / your resume exists to convince a Hiring Manager that you are worth spending time interviewing. If they believe you can’t be bothered to write your own CV, do you think that will impress them enough to spend time interviewing you?
– As I already mentioned. Your CV doesn’t exist to get you a job, it’s a document that exists to get you a job interview.
If you are successful in being called for an interview, then this is the document that will be referred to.
If you haven’t written it yourself, then how on earth will you be able to come across well when you talk about what’s written down?
If you haven’t written this document yourself you could well shoot yourself in the foot at interview if you can’t ‘talk with authority’ about the different points in your CV.
Therefore, in my strong opinion, one of the most important things to do with respect to the CV you send to potential employers is that you MUST write it yourself.
