Creating Resumes For Other People

I've been thinking about doing this on the side to make a little extra money. I read about writing resumes for other people earlier tonight on a freelance writing website and thought it sounded like a good idea to try doing. Has anyone here ever written resumes for other people? I'd like to know how it went for you. How much do or did you generall charge people to write resumes for them?

Hi there! I thought I could add my experience to this discussion as I am a freelance writer and I regularly use a freenacing website to find work. A lot of the work that I come across is resume writing and also writing stuff for websites such as their help pages and other such things. There are also a lot of data entry projects and projects where you have to write content for emails that will be sent out. All in all, there are a lot of varied jobs on the site that I use and I was wondering if you might find it profitable, especially if you are looking for resume writing. The site can be found on my blog from my profile page. I know we are not allowed to post links on here otherwise I would put it straight on here, but my blog has a lot of freelance writing jobs, hints and tips and also where you can earn money by freelancing and the freelancing site is just one of the things that I focus on. Good luck with this and if you need any help, please just ask!

The only person I have written a resume for is my husband but I think it sounds like a good idea. I'm not sure what I would charge if I were to do something like that, probably around $20-$30 per resume, depending on the amount of work that would need to go into it.

Yeah, the only resumes I've ever written were for myself. But I think $20-$30 sounds like a good range. Something similar is what I had in mind also. It'd definitely be a nice source of extra money, if in the least.
