After reviewing your information, goals, and concerns, I will conduct an in-depth assessment of your current resume, identifying ways to improve the wording, organization, and format. I will request additional information that can strengthen your resume, such as past examples of leadership and quantifiable accomplishments. In addition, I will review any job posting links that you send, and conduct additional research myself on your target job, to ensure that your resume is employer-focused and properly geared toward your desired position.
If you do not have an existing resume, I will provide a questionnaire, and will construct a highly effective resume emphasizing your achievements and abilities, based on the information furnished. The final product will differentiate you from the competition with an effective layout, and content that highlights how your skills and experience can meet the needs of potential employers.
A resume is a vital tool in your job search, and it is critical in helping you obtain interviews. However, a well-written resume serves other valuable functions as well. My clients have experienced a boost in confidence when they see their skills and accomplishments more effectively presented. This translates into more confidence in interview situations. In addition, a powerful resume offers benefits after the job interview, while employers are reviewing their “short list” of candidates, by serving as a reminder of your interview and your qualifications.
