Is It Worth Your Time
To be honest, you’re not going to know if it’s worth your time until you actually do it. By all means, apply to become a resume writer with Talent Inc, and test the waters out for a few weeks. Give it a month and see how much time you put into it and how much you’ve earned. This will give you more clarity and an idea of whether you should continue writing resumes or stop writing resumes via Talent Inc, or look to take your resume writing skills elsewhere.
I suppose it might be worth attempting a gig as a Talent Inc resume writer. However, call it quits if you think it is not worth the time or effort. There’s no sense in sticking with something that isn’t making you little to no money. Good luck if you give Talent Inc a try.
