RESUME WRITING

"Resumes evolve in layers. They don't spring fully formed in one draft from anyone's keyboard. They are the result of numerous drafts, each of which inches the product forward."     

 

Martin Yates "Resumes That Knock 'em Dead"

Generic resumes don't work. Your resume needs to have a focus so hiring managers know why you're a good fit and how you would add value to their company. 

Developing a well-crafted resume is essential to getting an interview. And, the more interest your resume draws, the more interviews you'll get, and the shorter your job search will be.

All certified resume writers are trained to write effective marketing documents. The way they work, however, varies. 

 

My process starts with a complimentary phone consultation: I want to hear about your current situation, career goals, and employment concerns. I want to take a look at your most recent resume.  In fact, you may already have a workable resume and just need an update, slight format changes, and a few clarifying edits. However, resumes are usually not as strong as candidates need in a competitive job market or don't represent them in terms of their present career goals. 

 

Resume development is a labor-intensive process and the fee varies depending on the complexity of the project.. Once you have established your need, I'll quote you a fee that is fair and competitive and show you several current resumes I've written.


Before I start writing, I won’t ask you to fill out a questionnaire with a laundry list of details. However, I will ask for your active participation. I'll get rid of weak verbs and meaningless hyperbolic language and optimize with keywords and core competencies. I'll create a targeted Summary and translate what you tell me into compelling and impactful text. My prodding and your recollections will unearth your unique skills, outstanding accomplishments, and long-forgotten achievements. 

I offer unlimited email and phone contact and will keep sending you revisions until you're satisfied. Clients who work with me collaboratively end up with the most competitive resumes. 

Other marketing services available are cover letters, executive bios, and LinkedIn profiles. Interested? Let's talk!
