“Your resume is not an autobiographical essay of your entire life.” — Susan Ireland, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Perfect Resume.
Frequent visitors to this site know I discourage job seekers from limiting their job search to simply submitting resumes and cover letters to target companies. Most resumes simply never reach the eyes of a decision-maker who has hiring authority; they are ignored, weeded out and thrown in the wastebasket. However, that does not mean that you can afford to not have a resume. Employers are conditioned to rely on a resume review to give them essential information about the applicant.
There are probably as many types of resumes as there are professional resume services. I offer a free consultation to anyone who does not have a resume, needs to revise their resume, or who needs feedback on their newly created resume. While reading books on resume development can be extremely helpful, many people still have trouble putting their thoughts on paper. My colleague, Jennifer Stockdale, has extensive experience in writing winning resumes. She is willing and able to help you!
Please contact me for that free consultation. Let’s create a resume that shouts “hire me!”
