When being a professional writer and trying to get new clients, they will most likely ask for a resume. If they do, you need to make sure yours is written and updated often. If they don’t ask for one, don’t send one because if they wanted one, they would have asked for it. However, you should always have your resume updated just in case because you never know if they will ask for one. It could be your dream job too so make sure you have a resume if asked for one.
The objective of the resume will be the first thing the potential client will see. Although this isn’t required, it should be added because clients are busy people just like writers are and they would rather see what the resume is about first instead of having to read the whole resume in case they decide they don’t want to choose this writer. The objective will be the main idea about the resume. It is where you add what you are going to do for the client if chosen.
Add all past and current writing experiences. Make sure to include everything from the very start of your writing career. This will show you have what it takes to write for the new, potential client. Make sure you add dates you started and stopped, if you did and what you did for each of these companies or clients.
This is where you add your high school and college education. This doesn’t have to have a lot to it as long as they know you have been educated a little. You don’t have to be a college graduate to be a professional writer. I didn’t go to college and I have been writing professionally for 6 years now.
Do you have additional skills besides writing? Add them here to show your potential to the new client.
Writing a resume is easy. Just be sure it is always up to date because in the world of professional writing, you will be applying for every job you can find to make sure you have enough clients.
