Why you need a professional resume writer
(if you’ve never used one before)
Finding a great job doesn’t have to be Mission: Impossible. But if you’re in the market for new employment in Vancouver’s tight job market, working with a professional resume writer can make the crucial difference between a short job search and a long one at a time when the average job search in BC is lasting well over 15 weeks.
Today’s Internet has made jobs easier than ever to find and apply for while making winning the job more challenging than ever. According to the leading job posting sites, each corporate job opening attracts an average of 250 resumes. Of these candidates, only four to six will be called for an interview.
If you’re like the average job seeker, your resume describes your job responsibilities – what you did at each job, in some detail. But that’s what almost every jobseeker does. And that’s why their resumes give a hiring manager no reason to put them in the “to be interviewed” pile. Which is why HR professionals consistently tell us that the average resume (your name, contact information, jobs list, and responsibility descriptions), fails to produce an interview in more than nine of ten job applications. Yet, the same HR professionals also tell us that a select group of job seekers’ resumes repeatedly win multiple interviews.
If your resume is going to make interviews happen, you need to stand out from the average jobseeker. To be successful, you need to make relevant accomplishments the focus of your resume. That’s the information hiring managers want to see above all else – because it’s the information they need to identify the best candidates.
But you may face a problem at this point: because of the way our minds work, many of us find it difficult to remember our successes. HR surveys show that most job applicants fail to highlight the full range of their accomplishments, skills and abilities in their resumes.
And that’s where a professional resume writer can make all the difference.
When your resume writer knows how to conduct a revealing interview, asks the probing questions, and digs deep beneath the surface of your job history to uncover the successes you’ve forgotten or haven’t realized were relevant, you’ll get a powerfully persuasive resume that quickly opens the doors to new opportunities and careers.
