Job-hunting in the 21st century lends itself to all types of great conveniences. Whereas once upon a time, you had to reference a book in order to construct a great resume, today technology is here to help us navigate the perils of crafting this very important document. Resume builders (sometimes called resume wizards) are a great way to bypass common resume pitfalls. Why attempt a resume all alone when there are quick and easy ways to build one via our modern technology?
Following that train of thought, I have always believed that you should have a number of different resumes prepared. In a previous article, I talked about having the wherewithal to adapt one‘s elevator speech to the situation one finds him or herself in. Likewise, the cover letter and resume you send should be tailored to the needs of the person receiving it.
Nowadays taking help from resume writing services is unavoidable because if there is even one grammatical or typographical mistake in the resume, employers don‘t qualify such resumes. In view of the fact that employers daily receive loads of resumes and so as to be able to get selected it is fairly important that that resume must be prominent over other, which can only be attained through resume composing companies.
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!
I‘ve been asked a number of times for a resume overnight or for ”discounts” on quoted services because they have only budgeted X amount of dollars. First of all, the better your resume, the more opportunities you will receive...and there is no way a writer can ”throw something together” without taking the time to learn a great deal about you! If a service promises overnight work, you have to ask yourself why? If they are that readily available, then they aren‘t a very busy practice - probably for a reason. Most quality services offer a several day turnaround time and the writer typically spends several hours on each project. A quality, working resume can‘t be rushed if it‘s done right (and beware of any service who can ”fit you in” in a day. Good writers are busy for a reason).
Representative Work- If one were to order a piece of jewelry, art or furniture, a savvy consumer will want to review the talent first, right? Nobody wants to spend money on an item without seeing samples of items or products that the ”artist” has produced. This is by far, one of the most telling tales of a resume service‘s quality. Without viewing their resumes, how can you be sure that their resumes are really ARE ”the best” or the ”most successful?”
