Powerfully Persuasive Resumes from a  Vancouver Resume Writing Service

A powerfully persuasive resume is a crucial job search tool that can make a job search short and successful by:

  • presenting your brand, establishing your value proposition, identifying your business impacts and demonstrating the ROI you bring to potential employers,
  • outlining your key accomplishments and giving readers enticing hints of how you made them happen,
  • showing that you can build and lead outstanding teams, and
  • proving that you are ready to rise to the next level.

I’m Tim Cunningham, Principal Resume Writer at Fast & Focused Resume Service. I’ve helped more than a thousand clients – CEOs, other senior executives, mid-career managers, professionals and others – win the jobs they deserved by creating resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles that opened critical interview doors.

Let Me Interview You – Before They Do

Many of us know we should focus on our successes when we write resumes. But we often find it difficult to remember more than a couple of professional accomplishments when we sit down facing the blank screen.

That’s where I come in.

When I interview you, I don’t stop when I find out what your job responsibilities were. Instead, I ask probing questions to uncover your success stories. I ask questions like:

    • What corporate strategies did you conceive and execute?
    • What were their results?
    • How did you grow revenues?
    • What emergencies did you manage?
    • What new clients did you bring in?
    • What kind of sales did you make?
    • How did you cut costs?
    • What were the problems you solved?
    • What policy improvements did you initiate?
    • What procedures did you initiate?
    • In what other ways did you help your employers deliver better results to their customers?
      And I never forget to ask the biggest question of all –How did your successes benefit your employer?

But I don’t stop there. Instead, because many companies have their own industry-specific jargon, I make sure I present your successes in ways that outsiders will understand. Here are a couple of samples from my case files that show the kind of difference my interviewing can make for you.

LinkedIn Coaching

These days it’s not enough to have a strong resume. Because you can provide more information on LinkedIn than you can on a resume, many recruiters and hiring managers will only consider a candidate if that person has a strong LinkedIn profile.

If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, I’ll show you how to set one up. And if you already have one, I’ll show you how to make it work for you by increasing reader interest and steering hiring managers to find you. I’ll also teach you how to locate and research new job opportunities and how to use LinkedIn to help you stay ahead of your field.

Resume Alignment – A Powerful Tool

Creating a resume that presents your key success stories is only half the battle. That’s why the next step in my resume writing service is to align your resume with each job ad you apply for.

A generic resume might match up perfectly with company A’s requirements and get you an interview.  But if company B’s job ad asks for different requirements, that same resume might not open the door because it doesn’t emphasize the particular skills and accomplishments that make you a perfect fit.

After more than a decade in the field, I know how to tailor clients` resumes to match the requirement of specific job ads. When you work with me, I`ll do it for you – and show you how to do it yourself.

When you arrive at your interviews, you`ll get another bonus. You`ll discover that everything that you learned during our resume consultation will have prepared you to handle the critical questions about your professional experience. When you find the answers you need on the tip of your tongue, you`ll relax and your confidence will tell the interviewer that you are ready to do the job.
