Be Demanding

You have a right to be picky when it comes to what defines you.

Your resume, your marketing materials, your website, and all the other details that tell world who you are matter. The written word is sometimes the only way future clients and employers will get to know who you are and what you can do. These items represent you when you aren’t there.

Be demanding.

This is your life, your work. It is important. You are important. If you’ve commissioned someone to create these things for you, make sure they take the task seriously and give it the importance it deserves.

To get the best experience and quality of work possible, it’s also important for you to be equally present in the creation of such things. It can be a challenge if all this is new for you or you’re very busy. You may be asked questions you’ve never had before or not comfortable self-promotion, for example, and this may make it harder to articulate what you want.

Here are some tips and ideas to help you make the most of having writing services performed for you.

1. Schedule enough time with the writer.

You want to make sure you’ll have the time to talk with the person and let them get to know your needs. Bring any prior versions of the resume, marketing materials, or other appropriate items and be able to describe what you liked and didn’t like about the document.

2. Be ready to answer questions about your history, goals, or other details relevant to the work you’ve commissioned with them. Make sure there is a clear understanding between you and the writer regarding what the finished products will look like and what you are receiving as the service.

3. Make sure you are honest regarding the quality of work you received and how well it met your expectations.

If they did a great job for you, let them know. If you are dissatisfied or unsure with the results, speak up.
