In a military battle, there tends to be an advance guard that moves forward of the main army group. The advance guard‘s purpose is to prepare the way for the main fighting force. Behind the main force is generally the rear guard. You are the main fighting force and the battlefield is the interview. Your foe is all the other applicants, all your shortcomings, all the misgivings and doubts that interviewer may have, and the needs and wants of that interviewer.
It is not uncommon for the job hunter to mistakenly assume that the potential employer is easily able to sort the highly qualified from the less qualified job applicants. When you consider that you will be competing with hundreds, possibly thousands of other job seekers, you will appreciate that your chances of being successful are significantly reduced. Then when you take into account that your potential employer is likely to have a ‘screening‘ process in which the goal is to reject as many applicants as possible before actually looking to see who might be suitable, you are sure to realise that you really do need to do something that makes you stand out.
Some might wonder why using a builder is more beneficial than simply using a template and making the changes in Microsoft Word. Quite simply, resume builders offer advanced tools many job seekers don‘t have. Builders enable users to convert resumes into multiple formats like pdfs and text. If you‘ve ever tried to copy and paste your resume from Word onto the Internet, you know it‘s not pretty. Builders also provide tools to build a resume that is web-ready.
For example, let‘s say the cost of your resume is $495.00, which, initially, may seem like a significant investment. However, once that resume starts opening doors to more quality interviews than you‘ve received in the past and results in a quality position with an impressive salary, even after an extended period of employment, this investment has paid for itself. Conclusion - Price should obviously be measured, yet not be the driving factor of your selection.
I am going to assume that you are now asking yourself, what are targeted key words and where and how do I use them? There are two trains of thought over the portion of a resume called the Career Objective. Some resume writers and consultants feel it is necessary and some say not. In my opinion and experience, adding a career objective section at the beginning of a resume is very important. This is where you can place targeted key words that will help to get you through to the next level, the interview. If these keywords are not found in a quick scan of your resume than your resume goes directly to jail and does not pass go. In other words, no interview for you!
Hint - For even more choices, perform numerous keyword searches including ”resume writing,” ”resume writer,” ”professional resumes,” ”resume samples,” ”executive resumes,” ”professional resume services,” etc. Bear in mind that the FIRST site which pops up has no bearing on the quality of service; it only means that they have good SEO (Search Engine Optimization). In the meantime, here are a few essential qualifiers that should play a key role in your decision.
