Guide for New Resume Writers

I hope to eventually turn this into a full-fledged special report, but for now, here's the outline for "Bridget's Guide for New Resume Writers."

This is your to-do list:
  • Join a Professional Association (Career Directors International, Career Management Alliance, National Resume Writers' Association, Professional Association of Resume Writers, Association of Online Resume Providers)
  • Decide what services you will offer (Resume writing? Career coaching? Career testing? Recruiting? Resume distribution? Job search research?)
  • Decide who your customers are (Local? Nonlocal? Specific industry? By gender?)
  • Decide how you will work (In person? By Phone? Through Questionnaires?)
  • Consider certification (Choose a credential and get started learning the craft)
  • Save up to attend a conference.
