I was thinking about cameras last night as I was sitting at my son’s swim meet. Although he has requested we do not bring a camera along with us to his meets, I noticed almost  everyone  there had a camera with them. That set me to thinking about how almost everyone owns a camera and can take snapshots but not everyone that owns a camera can take a high-quality picture that captures the essence of the moment and leaves a lasting impression.

It is the same with resume writing. Almost everyone can create a snapshot of their employment history but that doesn’t mean the document will capture the essence of the individual or leave a lasting impression with the hiring authority or selection committee.

We hire professionals (photographers, lawyers, mechanics, resume writers) because of the value and expertise they bring. A professional photographer knows there is more to a camera than point and click. They use the latest digital SLR equipment and know all about the multiple, complex functions that allow them to manipulate focus, shutter speed, aperture and depth of field and how changing each will affect or compliment the subject matter. By understanding the total function of the camera the photographer can capture a crisp, sharp image in all types of lighting. They have also been trained in the utilization of high-end processing software that allows them to edit images and they know who offers the highest quality printing to ensure their client receives the finest images. Tammy Shoup, CPRW

When you engage a trusted professional, you are paying for their knowledge, experience and capability to capture and craft a product that is of far greater value and quality than a non-trained individual produces.
