Why Partner with Reed Résumés?
Résumé writing is extremely time consuming. Your current staff manages multiple responsibilities, wears many different hats, and may be spread too thin. If this is the case, it is possible that your staff is sacrificing productivity and work quality.
Although well-intentioned and experts in other areas, very few people have the expertise and qualifications to create truly quality résumés for your participants. Does your staff have the recruitment experience that enables them to understand how a résumé is consumed? This is critical.
Organizations that deliver job search assistance services face extreme pressure to produce job placements. Donors and students have options; they want to see a track record of results and feel confident that their money is being put to good use or that they are making a wise investment. A proven track record of success is imperative!
Efficiency: Outsourcing your high volume résumé writing needs to a professional will ensure that each résumé receives the attention that it deserves and that your staff maximizes their strengths and productivity. Capitalize on your staff's strengths and outsource the résumé writing to a professional.
