Like many people, you may be considering making a fresh start this year. That could mean looking for a new job, a promotion, or perhaps embarking on a whole new career and doing what you’ve always wanted to do. It could involve retraining with a course that helps get you closer to your goals, and it will almost certainly involve updating and revamping what may be a very old and tired resume – and old and tired is not what you want to convey when you start hitting the job trail! Are you confident that your resume is really up to scratch and will help knock down those hard-to-open interview doors?
Did you know that most recruiters will assess your resume in less than 30 seconds? That’s a scary statistic – if you don’t grab their interest immediately, you can kiss your chances of getting an interview goodbye.
The only way you’ll have a chance at that new career opportunity is by passing the vetting process. And how do you achieve this? By having an impressive, professional resume and cover letter that will immediately make an impact on hiring managers and motivate them to call you in.
If you’re not too sure of what constitutes an impressive, professional resume, you’re in trouble. This means a resume that effectively summarises your relevant experience but also highlights your key skills, strengths and achievements. It means a resume that’s specifically tailored to the job you’re applying for, one that is streamlined and punchy, and one that is impeccably presented and error-free. It’s a resume that tells the recruiter who you are and exactly why they should hire you.
Even if you know you’ve got the right credentials and are perfect for the job, trying to convey this in print is not as easy as it may sound and can be a daunting task. For some, a weak resume is the only thing stopping them from getting the job they so want and so deserve.
Career FAQs understands the importance of having a professional resume and cover letter, and the challenge involved in producing them. For this reason, we offer our professional Resume Services that take all the pain out of applying for jobs, and maximise your chances of getting those all-important interviews.
The process couldn’t be easier. The first step is to find the correct level of package for you: Entry level, for new graduates and those with less than two years of professional work experience; Professional level, for those with two or more years of experience working at a professional or executive level; and Senior management level, for those who are currently working at a senior management level, going for top-level senior positions.
Once you choose your package and make your purchase, the fun begins. The first step will be for you to send us a copy of your current resume, current cover letter (if you have one) and the job ad for the job you’re applying for. If you don’t have a specific job in mind, then sending us sample job ads for the kinds of jobs you’ll be targeting will help us to tailor your resume appropriately.
A senior resume writer will then work closely with you, asking for more information and elaboration of your professional experience, personal and professional skills and strengths, and achievements. The more relevant information you can provide, the better we will be able to tailor your application and highlight the most important information. The process takes around five working days as we hone your resume until you are happy with it, providing you with both soft and hard copies (including one bound copy) at the end of it.
It really couldn’t be easier, and you’ll walk away with a resume and cover letter that you can be confident in, knowing that they make the most of your skills and experiences.
With a professional new resume under your arm, you’ll be able to hit the ground running as soon as new jobs get posted. Don’t get left behind – be the first to apply for that dream job this year!
Getting a professionally written resume is one of the greatest investments you could make in your career and your future – just ask T Samuel, a Communications Officer who landed her dream job immediately after receiving her professionally written resume and cover letter from Career FAQs: ‘The turnaround was amazing and the process was so easy. I thought I was a pretty good writer but it was amazing to see the finished product. I was so much more confident about putting my application forward! Thank you so much’, says Samuel.
OH&S professional N Saini was another very happy customer. ‘I needed a revamped cover letter and resume ASAP. I worked with a resume writer who communicated constantly with me to ensure both documents were tailored specifically to my needs and experience. I was extremely happy with the end result and would definitely recommend the service to others’, says Saini.
