The development of a compelling resume is critical to the success of effective job search strategies.
At Career Strategies Group, we write compelling resumes and letters, something your job search strategy needs. Our unparalleled expertise is in writing legal resumes and providing career change ideas. For career changers, we have more expertise than any other organization in the country in preparing resumes for lawyer career change and executive career change. Our resume strategy shows why you can be qualified to function in a new career area outside of your primary career track. We know how to prepare documents that provide you with career change ideas to show your true value to senior executives and other hiring managers. Our resumes produce interviews. It is as simple as that.
We all know resumes are important. But did you know that most resumes receive only a 7-12 second initial evaluation? If the hiring partner or executive doesn’t see what they are looking for in about the time it has taken you to read this paragraph, your resume will land in the “reject” pile. Also known as the garbage can. This is why a resume is a vital component in your job search strategies.
Top recruiters say that the way to get your resume read is to feature your achievements and successes. It is not what you know, it is what you have done with what you know. That’s the approach we take, and that is why our resumes help you stand out from the crowd.
We will develop a document that shows a “fit” between your abilities and the wants and needs of your targeted market. We will go through your career, identify those aspects of your background and develop relevant career change ideas to match your objective. Your new resume will enable you to compete effectively in the job market.
One of the key challenges in job search strategies is how attorneys and other professionals can differentiate themselves from other candidates with similar academic and professional credentials. Let’s face it. How does one personal injury plaintiff side attorney with 10 years of experience differentiate himself from another PI plaintiff attorney with 10 years of experience?
Brand identify is our area of expertise. There is a great deal of competition out there!
We will prepare a compelling, attractive resume that will help you break away from the rest of the pack.
We can also provide a range of other marketing materials, including cover letters, recruiter letters, market letters and salary histories.
The Cover Letter & Effective Job Search Strategies
Did you know research indicates the cover letter is more important than the resume itself? The resume is all about your past and what you have done, but the cover letter, when done properly, is about your future and what you can do. There’s a big difference. Most people make the mistake of using their cover letters to reiterate their resumes, which is an ineffective use of the document. We carefully craft our cover letters to complement and dimensionalize the resume, thus adding important information about the candidate’s value to the prospective employer. A professional cover letter can be critical in your job search strategies, and Career Strategies Group can create one that puts you at the top of your competition.
