Energize your Job Search

Has your job search stalled? Are you wondering why you’re not being considered for positions for which you are completely qualified? Have you been sending out resumes without any response? Chances are, it’s likely not you, but your resume.

Having written over 2500 resumes in the past 15 years, and after reviewing even more, the number one “mistake” I see in job searching (at any level) is using a resume that does not reflect one’s capabilities, accomplishments and employment value. While job search and resume writing strategies have changed over the years, one thing remains true. Your resume absolutely MUST give the reader reasons to interview you, otherwise it’s worthless.

Don’t make the mistake of sending the wrong message through your resume – and if you aren’t getting interviews, it’s likely that your resume is not doing the job it is supposed to!  When reviewing resumes, the reader (either a company decision maker, hiring manager, HR person or a recruiter), is looking for someone who can contribute to their bottom line objectives. Whether their needs include saving money, increasing revenue, expanding market share, opening new territories, building business relationships, introducing new technology, cultivating new opportunities, negotiating major deals, enhancing operations, boosting productivity or increasing efficiencies, your resume needs to demonstrate how you can help them achieve these goals. If you cannot “show them the money” through your expertise and proven ability to contribute, you won’t be considered and will be waiting a very long time for those desired interviews.

If this all seems daunting to you, I can help. I’m passionate about developing strong career marketing documents which reflect who you are, what you can offer and how you’ll be able to contribute. I’m also very fortunate to work in a profession I love and would enjoy collaborating with you in the development of your new professional resume designed to shorten your search while propelling you into your next career challenge.
