Maintaining Resume Integrity
In as much as I enjoy resume writing, I do not enjoy participating in schemes to create "templated" a resume for other "resume writers" to use or misuse to their delight. Or, at the very least, to profit from my hard work!
On occasion, I am asked by a client to take someone else's resume, make some changes, and make it their resume. Quite frankly, this smacks of plagiarism...I won't do it, so please don't ask for resume examples for free if you don't have permission!
Instead, if there is a general idea in a particular resume that strikes a responsive chord in you, I would be interested in taking a look at the resume and see if it inspires me to create original work. The key, of course, is original work, not a rip off of someone else's writings and not a thinly disguised rewrite of the resume.
My policy regarding working for others is this: if you trust my writing talents, you can trust that what I write for you will be "knock their socks off" good writing that will stand on its own two feet.
A good resume writing how-to section writer is a wellspring of original material while a poor writer hangs on to coattails of other writers or, worse, steals their information outright. Don't get caught up in the "resume mill" schemes that some so-called writers are involved in. Your reputation is at stake and you will be found out.
