Because the Internet has paved the way for anybody to claim to be anything, the first thing you want to check for is a person’s credentials, said Alex Twersky, career expert and professional resume writer.
Twersky says to start by asking if they are affiliated with a reputable organization and how much experience they have.
“There is no reliable third-party certification in the resume writing business,” said Twersky. “So it all comes down to experience, affiliation and most importantly, track record.”

2. Past Client Success
Next, so you know you’re hiring a resume writer who can actually get the job done, you want to make sure their work shows returns. Start by checking out their site to see if they’ve posted client testimonials, recommends Twersky.
“It’s also not inappropriate to ask them for references, or check out their professional LinkedIn or Facebook pages (if they are tech savvy enough to have these) to see what kinds of blurbs people are posting about them,” Twersky advised.
