If one is wanting a resume, I believe they should first consider whether they can make a good one on their own first: If that individual doesn't think they can do a good job after researching resume writing, then by all means use a pro if it's affordable. And you're right in another area as well - if a pro is called upon, it should be a collaboration, not just a "give me your work history and I'll tell you when it's done.

BUT, in my opinion, if that's all a pro is seeing wrong with an existing resume, then they should be upfront and say so, either showing the individual the needed changes or charging a reduced amount or doing it for free. In any case, with it being a collaboration, the writer should be honest and explain what they're doing and why, whether it's a simple reformat or a complete overhaul. Jacalyn in Mumbai, India.
