Lots of people are applying for the same job. If you want a job you must be noticed by the recruiter, in a sea of resumes. That’s why you need professional resume writing services. Here are some tips for a better looking resume for people who want to self educate about the basics. Consider using a resume profile or summary, with or without a headline, if you want to include an objective on your resume. Remember to tailor your profile to match your the job you want. The more specific you are, the better the chance of being considered for the job.
Make sure that your resume is in alignment with the job description of the job for which you are applying. Too often people think that their resume is a “once and done” proposition. Not so! You should customize your resume for every job each time you apply. Match up keywords from the job description with keywords in your resume. Make sure that your achievements and successes indicate that you are an excellent candidate for the job for which you are applying. You need to tweak your resume for every single job posting.
Keep it positive. Reason for leaving a job, setbacks, failed initiatives, etc. do not have a place on a resume. Employers are seeking people who can contribute, have a positive attitude, are enthusiastic, and have successfully performed similar job skills in the past. Concentrate on communicating these issues and avoid any detracting information.

Our US-based writers will generally use a combination of a questionnaire, email correspondence and a phone consultation to gather your work history and achievements as well as discuss your career goals. We will use whatever method you feel comfortable with. Some clients prefer to speak by phone while others may decide to work strictly via email due to differences in time zones or work schedules. We do ask, however, if you prefer to work by phone, to please send us a copy of your current resume or fill out our questionnaire with the basics, so we can spend more time on the phone discussing your accomplishments, rather than taking down employer names, titles and dates. Your writer will want to use this document to take notes on during your call.
Our writers are members of and hold certifications from the three largest and most respected organizations in the industry: National Resume Writers’ Association (NRWA), the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches (PARW/CC), and Career Directors International (CDI). To maintain the Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) Certification, writers must pass a four-part timed exam that tests knowledge of employment topics and resume writing ability. Additional certifications also require that writers maintain Continuing Education Units (CEUs) through ongoing professional training and development.
