The Professional Resume doesn’t cost you anything
“How can this be?”
For a Job applicant to answer this question, you’ll have to answered a different one.
“How much will using an average resume really cost me?”
According to Professionals, To find out how much your average Resume costs you, you have to divide the salary of your desired job by 50. This gives you your gross weekly salary apart from benefits.
Then you have to Multiply that amount by the length of your average job search, in weeks, and you get your total Income loss from being out of work.
16 weeks Job Search – Recession Study
Its all based on Income lost during the period your looking for a job. An Average statistics from a recession study conducted in Alberta stated that an average job applicant may spend an average of 16 weeks looking for a job. If you put that in to account then the amount of money your losing each week is astonishing.
* If you are looking for a job with an average of $30,000 income,
your weekly salary is $600, and a 16-week job search will cost you $9,600.
* If you are looking for a job with an average of $50,000 income,
your weekly salary is $1000, and a 16-week job search will cost you $16,000.
* If you are looking for a job with an average of $100,000 income,
your weekly salary is $2000, and a 16-week job search will cost you $32,000.
So the real cost of an average resume is not the hundred dollars you are paying for to have your notes typed and properly formatted.
The Real Cost of that resume is the amount of money your losing by counting your expected salary divided by 50 multipled by 16 weeks, the time that the average job search now takes.
Now the cost picture is much clearer, ask yourself this additional question:
“Can I really afford to risk paying that much for an average resume? Would I risk paying $9,000 – or more – looking for a job for that period of time or hire a seasoned professional that knows how to get you interviews and improve your chances greatly?”
