Resumes that Outshine the Competition

Your resume may be the single most important document ever written about you.  Is it working for you or against you? A mere "work history" cannot compete in today's marketplace. In order to get interviews, your resume must be a well-written, well-designed marketing tool.

Is Your Resume a Marketing Tool or a Career Obituary?

Your resume isn't about your past − it's about your future! If your resume focuses only on your past,  it's a career obituary. In order to get results, you need a resume that demonstrates your ability to excel in your target position. It should demonstrate your unique value in the marketplace, and answer the question, "Why should I hire you?" 

Can Your Resume Pass the 9-Second Test?

Here's the challenge:  Your resume has about nine seconds to capture the employer's interest during the initial screening. If you pass this test, your resume will earn a more thorough read-through. This means that it must be well written and strategically designed.

Cookie Cutter Resumes Just Don't Cut it

If you're a professional who has worked hard to get ahead, you may have already discovered that a do-it-yourself resume will not generate interviews. In order to get results, you need a resume strategy and a custom format that is designed especially for you.
