Resume Help - Will Your Homemade Resume Make The Cut?

The average employer spends less than 30 seconds looking at a resume.  It is the only contact you have with your potential employer. Most employers are actually looking for a reason not to interview you.

There is no room for anything but an error free, compelling document that reflects who you are and what you've accomplished in the most beneficial light. In a competitive job market, you need a professionally crafted resume to stand out among the hundreds of job seekers applying for the same position.

So, are you confident your current resume will stack up against the competition? The CV Company urges everyone looking for work or contemplating a career move to create a solid resume.

Resume help tips and situations:

Employers view resumes as a reflection of the applicant. It is extremely important for people to describe their skills effectively to show potential employers how their skills will add value. If successful, it will escalate their resume ahead of their competition.

For example, say you work in a management capacity, ask yourself, what were the people, process, operational and/or technological challenges you overcame? How did you resolve them and what was the final outcome? Answers to questions like these add substance to a resume and make it stand out.

Another resume tip to demonstrate the benefits of your skills include using figures. People react to numbers. They create vivid images in our minds. So don't talk about 'managing a major turnover'. Talk about 'managing a $27 Million turnover'.

Past performance is often an indicator of future performance. Make sure your resume articulates how you have helped your current or previous employer make money, save money or improve a process. Think about instances where you went above and beyond the call of duty and the impact that had on the business, your team or project is another way to help you identify your key achievements. Employers want the best employees and your resume needs to reflect the value you offer.

If you don't have time, let The CV Company write your resume for you using one of their professional sample resume formats.
