Take your resume from ugly duckling to swan status

beautiful swanWhile there is no doubt the content of your résumé is what is most important, the ability to craft an attractive résumé is also vital. On average, a potential employer spends 10 – 30 seconds scanning a résumé, trying to get a quick grasp on what you have to offer. Using visuals can set your résumé apart from the rest and draw the reader’s eyes to what you want them to see.

A visually attractive résumé can make it easier for the reader to find and evaluate essential information. But this isn’t just about being pretty. Creating a professional image for yourself indicates you understand what you have to offer, and that you have the ability to organize and present it well.

What a professional resume writer can do for you.

mck logo2In today’s job market, a number of factors affect whether an applicant is hired or not. Anywhere from using the proper key words in a resume to wearing the right outfit for an interview can determine whether or not you are considered for a job. In this economy, it is vital that you pay attention to the details. So, while creating a resume might seem a fairly easy task, perfecting it may require hiring a professional.

Always think of your resume as being a first impression of the professional you – since most often it is what a company will see before you land an interview. A professional resume writer will know what language businesses are looking for and how to ensure all your skills and job experiences are effectively communicated. That’s their job.

Technically, a resume writer falls under the category of “ghost writer”. Hiring professionals need never know that you chose to have someone help you craft your resume. But, in so doing, you may increase your chances of getting noticed by HR professionals and hiring managers and ultimately move up in your targeted career sector.

Just as you would probably hire an electrician to rewire your home or a plumber to fix a leaky faucet, hiring a resume writer means having a skilled professional help you create a marketing document that best represents you.

I welcome the opportunity to help you improve your chances of finding the perfect job. Check out my services page to see just what MCK Resume Service can do for you and your career.
