Approximately 250 job seekers apply to any given corporate job opening, and studies tell us that recruiters tend to skim a resume in about six seconds. These can feel like discouraging statistics, and job seekers may often think their odds of landing an interview are pitiful.
It’s true that many aspects of landing a job are out of your control, but the quality of your resume is not. Many job seekers, knowing the uphill battle of landing an interview, often blame the factors outside their control for their bad luck. Yet, sometimes it really is your resume.
In today’s market—where the resume must be constructed for both the human reader and the computer reader—you must have a stand-out resume to optimize your chances of securing an interview.
My resume services are always customized to each individual’s needs, but here is an overview of the three main types of resume packages I provide:
My clients work for or have gotten hired at a wide range of small to mid-size companies and non-profits, as well as multinational corporations such as Google, IBM, Microsoft, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, NBC, and Wells Fargo.
As a resume writer with a higher education background, my philosophy is to provide you not just with a great resume for right now but also with an understanding of how you can adjust and tailor the resume on your own later. To that end, I provide your final resume in a format and layout that you can easily edit yourself that is intended for both the human and computer (applicant tracking system) reader.
