What do you do best? Do you have the quantifiable facts to convey your success? How much have you helped your company save in time and money? Have you helped increase their customer base / market penetration? Did you lead a turnaround or growth situation? What sets you apart from your peers? What complements or positive feedback do you hear most? What do you want the next 5 years to be focused on daily?
Our goal is to communicate in quantifiable terms your impact on the organization and what you are able to offer the potential employer. We will highlight your leadership characteristics, scope of expertise, and depth of knowledge within specific situations and sectors.
The reader should be able to skim a well written resume document and still pick up on transferable skills, leadership style, and achievements. Your career story should be the focus of the documents communicating your career progression and success. Who are you? What do you do? What are your strengths? What quantifiable results have you produced? The average hiring manager reviews 200+ resumes per day. Our goal is to ensure that you stand out against the competition. Their goal is to eliminate as many candidates as possible and identify the ideal candidate quickly and efficiently. Your first impression is important – you only have 10 to 15 seconds to grab the reader’s attention.
Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) are used to systematically filter out candidates without minimum qualifications and identify keywords relevant to the individual roles. Proper resume document development is a balance between getting through the Applicant Tracking Systems and maintaining readability and brevity for the reader. Include quantifiable facts to convey your impact on the business. A deep-dive analysis is required to identify your career achievements and conduct an in-depth reflection of your characteristics, skills, and experience to build your brand. Are you using the best resume format for all of the systems and readers of various technical levels?
Perhaps you have issues to address – a significant employment gap, career transition to a new field, relocation, or appearance of a “job hopper.” Developing your career documents to tell your story and positioning you for the next step is a multi-stage process. The format of the resume base document should be strategically selected to optimize your visibility ensuring a resume that stands out.
