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.

job search tip yellowGet your family and friends involved!

Make your job search a team effort by telling your family and friends that you are searching for a job.

It is important to have a strong support system. They can be there to cheer you on in victory, or pick you up if you’re feeling down. Furthermore, your support team can keep an eye out for any job opportunities they come across.

Keep in mind, every person you know is a potential contact. Following are some ideas of who you can involve in your job search:

  • Family members
  • Friends
  • People in your address books (hard copy, e-mail, and social media)
  • Your Christmas card list (or comparable)
  • Co-workers from past jobs
  • People you know at the gym, physical trainer, or sports teams
