In times of economic turmoil, many businesses suffer. But there's an old adage in the resume writing industry: There's no bad time to be a resume writer. When times are good, people want a resume to get a better job. When times are tough, they need a great resume to compete for jobs.
In fact, my phone has been ringing off the hook the past few weeks. I've heard from a couple of clients that I haven't heard from in years (one dating back to 2003!!) and there has been a steady stream of new clients as well. Another Nebraska colleague reports similar results. How's business for you?
If you're not as busy as you'd like, there are a couple of options. Ramp up your marketing and public relations efforts and bring in more business yourself ... or consider subcontracting for other writers. If you're interested in subcontracting, be sure to order my special report, "Making Money as a Resume Subcontractor" (just $20 for the 39-page report, which includes more than 25 individuals or firms looking for subcontractors; available for immediate download as a PDF.)
