Regardless of your location or industry, if you are looking for a job, you are probably in a competitive job market. There may be hundreds of applicants applying for the same job as you. It can be hard to stand out when there is so much competition.
We know that the hardest part of writing a resume can be deciding where to start. It’s hard to write about yourself, and it’s even tougher to begin to walk through your career when you haven’t had to write a resume for a long time. Some common questions we hear when clients come to us for a discovery call or consultation professional resume services are:
How long should the resume be?
What font should I use?
Which resume format (chronological, functional/skill-based or a combination) is appropriate?
Which document format is acceptable?
The answers to these questions depend on your individual situation, and we will apply what we have learned from helping over 120 applicants since July 2016 in many different fields secure new job opportunities.
What do Employers and Recruiters Want to See on a Resume?
While the type of information you need to have on your resume does vary some from industry to industry, employers and hiring managers are more likely to be impressed by quantifiable accomplishments than simply stating your work experience, education and skills. For example, a resume for an experienced accounting professional will look much different than a resume for a new graduate pursuing a career in graphic design.
How to Stand Out from Other Applicants
We will work with you to learn about what makes you who you are in addition to what you have accomplished. How do we do this? We will get to know you, listen to what you have to say and make your consultation as comfortable as possible. Depending on your location and availability, we will meet with you via Skype, FaceTime, telephone or in-person.
Using tools from the Narrative Assessment Certification, an approach to make clients comfortable sharing stories and information with us, we develop an understanding of our client’s unique skills, talents and gifts, and convey this information on your resume.
We are pleased to support clients with professional resume services to assist them with finding new employment opportunities across Canada and the United States.
How do I Write a Resume if I am Switching Careers?
If you have made the decision to pursue another type of career after working in another industry for several years, it can be hard to know how to communicate the value of your skills and experiences in a way that will resonate with an employer in a different industry.
We can help you convey your transferable skills and accomplishments to make it clear to an employer why you would be an excellent candidate, and how your experiences and skills will benefit their organization.
