Resumes & LinkedIn

Your resume: that illusive, mysterious document…

that is so critical to the growth of your career.  Within a short one to two pages, you need to convey your relevant experience, education, and talents while highlighting achievements that resonate with the hiring manager. Not only that, you also need to capture the right key words to get through the HR screening process.  It’s no wonder that most resumes fall short – up to 75% of resumes fail to impress the key decision makers.

Fortunately, our team of experienced writers and career coaches know what it takes to succeed in the modern job market.

Candidates eliminated for their resume alone.

 In the modern job search, using the right key words is essential to surviving the screening process and being found by recruiters. Human Resources uses Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to manage their flood of candidates, and those systems rely heavily on the key words within the job description. Part of our process is to identify the critical key words for your specific industry and target job.

How It Works

Unlike an anonymous online resume service, we take the time to get to know you.  We start with a questionnaire, then we conduct a personal interview for 30 to 45 minutes to fully understand your work history and career goals.  Using our systematic approach, we research the relevant key words for your particular target job.  After receiving your draft documents, we do up to two rounds of editing to make sure your resume is perfect.

LinkedIn Profiles

Only 38% of job seekers utilize all of the tools available on LinkedIn (LinkedIn, 2016), but with over 500 million users worldwide, it is the premire outlet for job seekers and recruiters alike. Having a dynamic profile, rich with keywords, is a great way to attract recruiters, but that is only one part of LinkedIn–you need to know how to best utilize the whole site! When you purchase a LinkedIn profile with us, you also gain access to Donna Shannon’s Udemy.com course: “How to Use LinkedIn to Get a Job Without Going Crazy.” In this self-directed, video based course, Donna teaches you everything you need to know to fully and effectively use the site to land your dream job. Of course, we still write the whole profile for you (with clear directions on how to update your profile)–the class is a bonus that few other writing services offer.
