One of my favorite things about the Internet is how it allows shoppers to comparison shop before pulling the trigger on a purchase.
As a consumer, I like choices. And that’s why I dig the reverse-auction business model. So now foolishly, as I’ve done many times in the past, I’m going to share an idea. (If it already exists, let me know! And if it doesn’t, don’t steal it!) How about a Website where you can post your crappy old resume and have resume writers bid for the job. They can try to win you over with action verbs and templates before you hire them. You also can negotiate price and deadline.
It seems like a no-brainer. Resume writers get increased exposure and new clients, while employees end up with more reputable options. There would be an accreditation process, with only the best vendors making the cut.
So now it’s time to either poke a hole in my idea or let me know that you want to be part of the team that makes it happen…
