What’s the Difference Between a Resume Writing Service and Career Coaching/Career Counseling Services?

What's the Difference Between a Resume Writing Service and Career online Coaching/Counseling Services?

Do writers coach or coaches write?

Trying to figure out whether you need a resume writing service or career coaching/counseling services can be confusing. Both sets of services can help you achieve your professional goals, but they do so in different ways.

Here’s a quick overview of the key differences between these two types of services:
A resume writing service focuses on helping you craft a document that will get you noticed by potential employers. A good resume writing service will take the time to learn about your professional history and achievements, and then craft a resume that highlights your strengths and downplays any weaknesses.

A career coach or counselor, on the other hand, takes a more holistic approach. In addition to helping you update your resume, a career coach will help you assess your skill set, identify potential career paths, and develop a strategy for achieving your goals. Career coaching/counseling services can be particularly helpful if you’re feeling stuck in your current role or if you’re unsure about what kind of job would be a good fit for you.

So, which type of service is right for you? If you’re simply looking to update your resume and don’t need any additional guidance, then a resume writing service is probably all you need. However, if you’re feeling lost in your career or uncertain about which direction to go next, then career coaching/counseling services can be an invaluable resource.
