Did you know that 75% of resumes never get read by a human being?

Many persons are competing for the same job. If you need a job you must be noticed by the recruiter, in a sea of resumes. That’s why you need a certified resume writer. Here are some tricks for a better resume for people who want to self educate about the basics. Before you start work on writing or updating your resume, review resume examples that fit a variety of employment situations. Then select a style and format that best highlights your strengths and achievements.
Make sure your resume is error-free. I know that sounds like a no-brainer, but you might be surprised at the number of resumes that I review for clients who have a spacing issue, a punctuation error, or even a misspelling. The problem is that you have looked at your resume so many times, your brain knows what it is supposed to say, but in reality, it says something else. Get several people to proofread your resume, and have them read it for different purposes. One person should read for grammar, for example, and another should read for punctuation and spelling. You cannot afford to send a resume that has any error at all in it. I have heard former HR directors admit that they scan resumes for errors because they are looking for ways to eliminate potential candidates. Any superficial error will eliminate your chances of getting a call for that job.
Select the best organizational format. Most resumes are written in chronological (reverse time order) format, but that does not mean that the chronological choice is best for you. If you are making a career change or have extremely broad, related skills sets, a combination format may be best. The combination is evenly balanced between skill set description, achievements, and employment history.
The job market is over-saturated and highly competitive. With 250+ candidates applying for the same job and 94% of recruiters sourcing candidates on LinkedIn, you must stand out and get noticed faster in the digital age. That’s why turning to a Certified Professional Resume Writer is the best decision for your career. It can mean the difference between getting an average job versus getting the job you want, and deserve! Qualified (highly certified) resume writers are trained to see things in a resume that laypersons do not see. See more info on Resume writing service.
