I recently spoke with a colleague who is also applying for an SES position in the federal government. Said colleague informed me that the price quoted by a professional resume writer to prepare the ECQ essays for the position announcement was $6000. Apparently the regular price is something like $3000, but that’s only if you give the resume person four weeks to complete the drafts. Can you imagine?
Tell you what, it’s not the prices that I can’t imagine – it’s the idea of being willing to write more than one of these application packages in the span of, say, a year. Oh My GOV, you guys, this is so freaking dull. You would think writing about oneself would be a lot more interesting and enjoyable.
