Many persons are competing for the same job. If you need a job you must be noticed by the recruiter, in a sea of resumes. That’s why you need a certified resume writer. Here are some tips for a better looking resume for people who want to self educate about the basics. Adding numbers to your resume shows employers in black-and-white fashion what you have accomplished at work. Not all of your achievements are quantifiable, but adding those that are can serve as powerful negotiation tools when the topic of salary arises.
Use keywords strategically. Check the job description carefully for each job for which you are applying, and use keywords in your resume that match keywords in the job description. Use a free resource like Wordle.net to help you identify the keywords that are used most frequently in the job description, and then use those keywords throughout your resume. The people who are recruiting or hiring are looking for individuals who are a good match for the job opening that they have. Don’t make them guess whether or not you have the required experience or skills. Make it easy for them to consider you a good match.
Find a balance between wordiness and lack of detail. Employers need to see details about your work history and experience, but they don’t need to know everything. The fact that you were Den Leader in your Cub Scout troop is irrelevant. Keep information germane to the goal of attaining an interview. Eliminate information that is not related and will not have direct impact on winning the interview.
Did you know that 75% of resumes never get read by a human being? We can help you beat the bots! When you apply for a job online, your resume isn’t typically going directly to a recruiter or hiring manager. It’s first being processed by an ATS (Applicant Tracking System). Whether that human recruiter ever sees your resume could depend on how well your resume is optimized for ATS algorithms. We know how to format your resume and what keywords to include for your industry in order to help get your resume into the hands of the recruiters and hiring managers.

The average resume, from creation to finalization includes time spent consulting with the client, additional research, drafting a cover letter, and often crafting a LinkedIn profile. The research we perform for each client exceeds what most resume companies do. Our process includes a consultation and/or a detailed questionnaire that seeks to extract information regarding the client’s employment history, career goals, and accomplishments. We research each company the client has worked for, the positions held, and the positions of interest to ensure proper keyword matching.
How does your revision process work? Is there a time limit? We generally will go out to about three, sometimes four revisions. Most clients do not require revisions beyond v3. We try to wrap up and finalize all projects within a week, but we do understand that some clients have other obligations and cannot always get back to us with their revisions right away. Most projects are wrapped up in about two to three weeks at most. The most important thing is to remain in communication with us. As long as you are in regular communication with your writer, we will continue making tweaks, within a reasonable amount of time, as needed until you are satisfied. However, we cannot offer free revisions for clients who fail to respond to us after draft delivery and then decide to come back four months after receiving their documents to work on changes. If we hear nothing after a period of three weeks, we will assume you were satisfied and moved on with your job search and we will close out your file and send over finalized documents in Word, PDF and plain text formats.
