Your résumé is a calling-card; what does yours say about you?
Fast Facts about Resumes:
The time it takes a good recruiter to scan a resume for shortlist!
Time it takes an Applicant Tracking Systems to judge your resume!
Percentage of interest that a professional resume can bring!
Great resumes often elicit higher initial salary offers!
Percentage of resumes many recruiters/hiring managers actually review!
In our experience, most résumés have the same sorts of problems…
Poorly written, often having issues with grammar, punctuation, word usage
No clear sync between candidate knowledge and experience for the job in question
Lack of creativity, over-used résumé templates
Errors and bad formatting, little attention to detail
Document doesn’t convey passion or enthusiasm, clear subject expertise
Inaccurate (outdated) contact information, missing job-related information
A well-written résumé will…
Increase the amount of quality responses that you get from recruiters and hiring managers
Position you as an “ace” candidate in applicant tracking systems, increasing your potential to get hired
Demonstrate your capability and performance, which could increase your salary offer
Properly highlight and list skills, knowledge and abilities that warrant attention
Help you stand out to recruiters who screen candidates manually; the visual DOES matter
Resume Samples – Our Philosophy
While some companies choose to post resume samples on their websites, we’ve made a decision to exclude them from public view. In an effort to keep our style and methods safe and keep web surfers from plagiarizing, we don’t have samples available online.
If you would like to see a sample of our before/after clients, we welcome the opportunity to set up an online meeting and screen sharing session. Please schedule a meeting today!
