So, you applied to several job postings and haven’t heard back from any of them. Chances are the hiring managers spent less than six seconds skimming your resume and weren’t impressed. Unfortunately, this is more common than you might think. Sixty percent of jobs are actually given through networking. It depends on who you know. If you are just starting in the industry, it’s likely that you don’t know anyone who knows someone who is hiring yet. Thankfully, a well-crafted resume (written by a professional resume writer) can help you catch the eye of a recruiter. Continue reading to learn why you should be hiring resume writers to perfect your resume.
One of the things that a recruiter is looking for is a resume that is well-written. They want your resume to tell them the story of why they should hire you out of the latest batch of resumes sitting on their desk.
This story will tell them that you are qualified for the job. It will tell them that you are ready to take on whatever they might ask of you through this employment opportunity.
Writing might not be your thing, but it is theirs. A resume writer spends their day writing resumes about other people. They will be able to depict your professional history in a way that you wouldn’t be able to even if you spent hours sitting at your computer.
Talking about yourself is hard enough. Bragging about yourself? Even more difficult.
Though you don’t feel comfortable talking about yourself in this capacity, they do! Your professional resume writer will be able to take your accomplishments and make you shine like the star that you are. Even if you are comfortable bragging about yourself, it can be difficult to do so without sounding like a jerk.
The only thing you have to do is be ready for the abundance of interviews you are going to get.
As an average Joe, you might not even know what to include in your resume. If you don’t include the right keywords or have the right formatting, your resume will get sucked into the black void known as the Applicant Tracking System (ATS).
There is a possibility that your resume writer comes from an HR/recruiter background giving them insight into what exactly recruiters and HR personnel are looking for. Even if they aren’t ex-recruiters, they will know what to include in your resume to knock the socks off of the people handling the hiring process.
Having the perfect resume (written by professional resume writers!) will help you land more interviews. So, get ready to brush up on your interviewing skills because we are going to get you hired.
If any of this confuses you, you might consider hiring resume writers to write your resume for you.
