Resume Writing Services:
Navigating today’s job search market is dramatically different than it was just a few years ago. Candidates who write their own resumes often take weeks or months to do so and never get the favorable response they wish for. If you are suddenly displaced or have never had to work at finding a job, you will find yesterday’s job search methods sadly ineffective. Online recruiting is now the standard—and it is a system that can be frustratingly difficult to navigate.
Many of our clients insist that they could write their own resumes if they had the time. The fact is that this is a highly specialized type of business communication that most people do not have the expertise to do well. That’s why we frequently write for discriminating clients in the communications and human resources fields—who readily appreciate the value we provide in terms of objectivity, judgment and career expertise.
Engaging a savvy career professional pays real dividends in catching a recruiter’s eye, winning an interview and getting hired. Resumes and cover letters that don’t attract interviews exact a heavy cost. If your last annual salary was $100,000, every month you are out of work costs you well over $8,000—an amount that clearly justifies investing in professional career services. Reducing search time by just 2 months can put $16,000 back in your pocket! If you’re ready to invest in your future, contact us today.

An executive resume writer who thinks and writes strategically—and who knows not only how online recruiting platforms work but also what recruiters and hiring managers expect to see—can deliver dramatic return on investment. Working hard at the job search is no longer enough—working smart is key to success in today’s intensely competitive job market.
