 Résumés  and Cover Letters

The purpose of a résumé  is to land you an interview, not to land you a job.

 

The résumé  is your primary marketing document.

You wonder--- How do I make my résumé stand out and so I get recognized? 

How do I address gaps in employment or lay-offs?

Will my résumé  get through the applicant tracking software (ATS)?

 

A résumé  is not a listing of everything you've done in your entire life.  It is a concise description of your accomplishments. It should summarize what you have to offer an employer; your added value.

Your cover letter  is your chance to showcase your accomplishments and differentiate yourself from the competition.  It should not merely restate the resume.

That's why you need me.  I'm a member of both the National Résumé Writers Association (NRWA) and the Professional Association of Résumé Writers and Career Coaches (PARWCC).

I continually study with both organizations.   I'm not only a certified professional résumé  writer (CPRW), I'm also a member of the committee that judges the applications for the CPRW certification.

In short, I will help you express your added value.

I partner with you on the organizing, developing, and editing; so, you'll have a résumé that expresses who you are, what you've accomplished, and will make it through the applicant tracking software (ATS). You'll have a cover letter that expresses your passion and differentiates you from the crowd.

 

My ultimate goal is to have your resume effectively and efficiently communicate your value proposition, so the readers says "Wow, I've got to meet this person."

Customers often ask how many hours it  takes to obtain a well written résumé.

For my customers, the typical time ranges from 3-5 hours. This usually includes my spending 1-2 hours reformatting the customer's original document and studying the customer's industry and role. This saves a lot of time in the long run.  But, a lot of the timing depends on the state of the original document and thus how much work needs to be done.
