Why Hiring a Professional Resume Writer is a Great Investment
Job searching can be expensive! It costs money to buy new clothes or dry clean your only interview suit. And at a time when you’re counting every penny, nickel and dime, you don’t want to spend more cash than necessary filling up your gas tank to drive to yet another job interview – only to return with another rejection.
If you’ve been job searching for some time without any success, it might not be what you’re saying but how you come across on paper. This is where we come in. We’re not just professional writers, we are experts in making your resume stand out from the rest of the applicants waiting in the same line. We’re career coaches and strategists, and the job search doesn’t have to be a lonely one.
Here’s why you should hire us and why it’s a great investment:
Ur not gud at riting
If you’re an accountant, for example, dollars and cents are your game, not words. You’re very good at what you do but when it comes to expressing your previous work experience, your writing only confuses HR professionals. It’s tricky to figure out which parts of your experience are useful to recruiters. As professional resume writers, we can discern what needs to be on your resume – and what doesn’t – and express it all in a professional format.
You’re stuck in 1986
When most people look at their resumes, they think they look totally awesome but when a hiring manager gets it, all he sees is the past.
Resumes have to be stylish – just like music and fashion – so they get more than a passing glance from a potential employer. We can give your resume the extra zing it deserves. Executive Drafts will make sure your resume reads – and looks – its best from the quality of paper it’s printed on to the template we use.
Not getting interviews on your own
Your work experience is impressive and your workplace skills are impeccable but you’re still not getting any call backs. It might be that you have a sub-par resume.
When you have a professionally written resume, it can open doors for you that could lead to a great job. We also understand that you might need several versions of your resume – depending on the type of interview you have. These are the little nuances that we understand and can make a big difference in landing an interview.
Most people look at a resume as a necessary evil; a one-page boring synopsis of all their previous accolades and accomplishments because they have a hard time talking about themselves.
This is where an expert comes into play. We can help you through the writing process if you have a hard time bragging on your accomplishments. There is no shame in getting help with this because we are our own worst critics and writing about ourselves is a tough assignment. And since we absolutely love what we do, you can sit back and watch the compliments roll in!
You have gaps
Maybe you left the workplace to raise a family and now you’re ready to go back to work, but there is a huge gap in your employment history. Or, you might be in the process of changing careers and you’re unsure of how to revamp your resume to show off any skills you might have for this new industry. Unfortunately, you can’t rewrite history, but we know how to accentuate the positives and write away any negative aspects on your resume. Simply put, we can walk the thin line for you because we work closely with recruiters, understanding how they view your career history and how to best frame your past.
While some people can do the job on their own, when you’re struggling to get interviews, hiring a professional resume writer like Executive Drafts can be one of the best investments you’ll make as you continue your job search. Getting started is as easy as visiting www.ExecutiveDrafts.com and selecting the package that fits your career!
