Keywords, action words, colour, font, layout…resume design and development has definitely changed over the years, however, the need for the modern-day version of a resume has remained consistent for the last 70 years. Even today, interviews are rarely offered without a resume and jobs are rarely offered without an interview. You need to be prepared.
Your resume is a critical piece to your job search success. It may sound cliché, but your resume is your chance to make a good first impression – it is your “foot-in-the-door”.
The goal of a resume is to get an invitation to an interview; the goal of an interview is to get a job offer.
Over the years, our team has learned that resumes are the most significant barrier between our clients and the career they dream about. Employers tell us they want resumes that are visually appealing, well written, easy to understand and professional. They want to see the knowledge, skills and abilities the person has to offer the position. Employers want the link between the resume and the job to be obvious, they don’t want to be left to guess or assume. Meet these employer requirements with a well-designed resume and you are well on the way to making the career change you want.
Whether you are chasing that dream job, changing careers, overcoming job loss, or leaving an unpleasant situation, your resume will open doors. If you’re not getting calls for interviews or you are not feeling confident about sharing your current resume, connect with us at (705)745-1607 or .
We will also ensure that you go to an interview with a list of references that match the style of your resume.
Please contact us directly if you would like to see a sample of our work.
Employers still expect to receive a cover letter with each resume. Cover letters may seem old school, but they haven’t been replaced yet.
A cover letter gives you the opportunity to link your knowledge, skills and abilities to the position. Letters help the employer see exactly what you have to offer.
A resume tells the employer what you have done and a cover letter tells them what you will do for them.
Employers tell us that only 60% of the resumes they receive are introduced by a cover letter. They also tell us that if someone includes a cover letter, their resume has a better chance of being moved to the ‘top of the pile’. Anything that increases your chances of being offered an interview is definitely worth the effort.
If you’re not feeling confident writing a cover letter, or you are not getting calls for interviews, please call us at (705)745-1607 or email us at .
We can provide you with an example of a cover letter if you contact us directly.
