Looking for a new job can be an expensive business.
After buying fresh interview outfits and paying out for travel costs, the last thing you want is more expenditure.
Sometimes, though, you need to spend money to make money. Investing in yourself should always be your main priority.
You should seriously consider using a professional resume service in any of the following situations:
Here are 6 of the best ways a professional resume service can simplify getting the job of your dreams…
With more and more recruitment carried out online, it’s common for job vacancies to attract hundreds of applicants.
Hiring managers often take just a few seconds to decide whether a resume warrants closer investigation.
Rather than using a generic resume template, a professional CV will present your marketing document attractively with key information front and center so it makes that first cut.
You need your background and experience to appeal to the specific audience you are targeting.
Whether you’re switching industries or applying for multiple positions, getting resume help is one way to keep your applications laser focused.
Any employer wants to know what you can do for them and how you differ from other applicants.
An effective resume writing service will showcase your personality and core values. This way, you can demonstrate clearly to an employer how you’ll mesh with their organization and add value.
It’s often hard to write about yourself in this way so let the professionals do it for you.
No hiring manager wants to look at a long, bulleted list of job duties.
They do, though, want to see worthwhile achievements.
A proficient professional resume builder will bring your accomplishments fully to the fore. They will show an employer directly what benefits you bring to the table.
With an applicant tracking system (ATS), software can weed out unsuitable applicants before they even hit the desks of hiring staff.
Professional resume writing services will work with you to ensure your CV is fully optimized. They’ll employ key terms to make certain your resume overcomes this first hurdle.
A well-crafted cover letter is crucial.
Increasingly, a concise and relevant LinkedIn profile is also a valuable tool when you’re looking for work.
With resume help, you’ll end up with a complete marketing package. Selling yourself is not always the easiest task so let the professionals do it for you.
If you’re wondering whether you should act now and hire a resume writer, here are 3 reasons when it makes perfect sense…
If you’re working and want to switch companies, you probably don’t have too much spare time. Between work, family and fun, writing a new resume is probably low on your list. Hire a resume writer and get that new job with ease.
If you’re unemployed and need to find work in a hurry, think of hiring a resume writer as an investment not an expense.
If you have no resume in place at all, you should at least put together a basic framework yourself. From here, a professional resume writing service can build on that foundation more effectively than starting from scratch.
There’s no precise, one-size-fits-all resume template. There are simply too many variables.
There are, though, several core components present in a truly effective CV.
If you want to make sure someone sits down and reads your resume, design and layout count.
Ask yourself this…
If you had 150 resumes to sift through, would you read a poorly formatted wall of text or toss it aside and move on to the next one?
All great resumes are crisp, clear and impeccably designed.
A winning resume doesn’t just rehash your job duties.
Rather than describing what you did, a successful resume will outline how well you did it.
Whether scanning is done electronically or by someone other than the hiring manager asked to manually look for keywords, don’t overlook the importance of targeted language.
Your resume should be heavy on words used in the job advert and in the company’s marketing material.
Make those keywords count.
It Includes Metrics
The best resumes include cold, hard numbers.
Which looks better to you?
“Increased revenue” or “Helped grow revenue by 215% in 3 months by doing x”.
The more achievements can be backed up with statistics the better.
Less is more.
As well as being extremely specific to the job in question, the most powerful resumes cut out all irrelevant information. This helps to make what you choose to include even more effective.
