Resumes

*** Special Deal ***

Free assessment of your current resume (if you have one). If your resume is good enough, I’ll be honest and tell you, so it won’t cost anything.

If you need a new resume or your current one updated, I’ll tell you and then you decide if you want to go ahead.

If you want an updated resume and cover letter, it will be at the discounted rate of $50 valid until the end of the year). To make the discount more valuable, I can also address key selection criteria.

I currently DO have a few time-slots available to help people with resumes. But you need to be quick or you may miss your deadline.

Full payment is required after an assessment, before any work is done on your resume.

Resume Tips

I get a lot of enquiries from people who don’t really understand how important a good resume will be for their career so I’ll explain this further.

First, I want to tell you about the reaction one client had while looking for work. This was his thought process:

I guess my resume must have significant problems as I tried for 3 months to get specific jobs and I didn’t get a single interview.

Don’t ever assume this is the case!!!

You might have years of expertise doing the identical work the recruiter needs from the new hire. However, there are many reasons why you miss out on the job:

Some companies hire internally but are legally forced to advertise externally as well.
You might be competing with 40 other people, all with the same experience or better than you. Some candidates say they’ll happily work for less money. Sometimes nepotism works against you because recruiters often hire family and friends, who may not even be qualified for the job.

So, never blame yourself for missing out on a job if the reason was beyond your control.

If you want to get a job, you need interviews.
To get interviews, you must attract the attention of the recruiter. You do this by having a resume that’s clearly written so it can be skimmed within 10 seconds. In most cases, an assistant or secretary will pre-screen all resumes and decide if the candidate is worth interviewing. The more complicated your resume is, the less likely you are to having an interview.

Keep in mind that there are lots of jobs where the recruiter will receive between 100-400 resumes. The secretary or assistant has to sort them into two piles, Yes (to a phone interview) or NO (no good for the job). This helps reduce the number of resumes from potential candidates for the recruiter to read and interview.

If you hire someone to do your resume for you, make sure they know what they’re doing and don’t be afraid to spend money to get it done. Once it’s completed, it serves as a template for all future jobs.

So, if you need a fresh resume, I can help you get your foot in the door more often when applying for jobs.

A bit about my background. I’m a former recruiter, employer, marketing manager, and trainer; I know what employers want in a resume and what they DON’T want as well. I have read//skimmed thousands of resumes and interviewed a few hundred people.

Clarity is the key.
I have helped hundreds of people with resumes. Many of them have gotten interviews as a result and some have secured jobs because I helped them. There’s no better success story than that! Recently I finished a resume for a client and he secured 2 interviews on the same day. It was partly due to the clear resume I provided. One employer ended up hiring him so he was ecstatic with the results.

If you’re unsure about any aspect of your resume, feel free to ask questions.
