One of the key ways our service is designed to help you is by providing you with feedback and perspective.
Once you have a first draft of your resume done it is tremendously important that you seek out feedback on your document. We offer this free of charge over the internet, but in addition to using our services reach out to your friends and ask them what they think of the document. Find hiring managers in the industry or company of the job your are applying to and ask them how they think you could make your document better. With a resume there is no one right answer - what one person likes another may not. The key to gathering feedback and using it to create a document that will get you the results you need is noticing patterns in what people are saying. Once you hear the same thing over and over from different people you talk with about your resume, you may want to consider making the change even if at first you did not think to display the information that way. Remember the same information displayed differently can lead decision makers to reach a different decision.
Additionally, when you find people to review your resume make sure you find people with diverse perspectives. For example, if you are a student or recent graduate, don't only ask your peers for advice since the people reviewing your document will likely be older, more experienced, and will perhaps view the same resume differently than your peers. Also, make sure to reach out to people who work in the industry you are applying to. They will know what keywords to put on the document, how to phrase your job responsibilities to make them sound most relevant, and what skills you should considering adding if relevant to the document.
We would like to help you get started on seeking out feedback and perspective on your resume to make it great. To get started please fill out the form on the upper right of this page. Thanks and good luck!
