Everyone knows a compelling resume is critical to job search success. Is your resume doing the job for you? If you are not getting interviews for positions you know you are qualified for, then the fault is likely your resume, not you! Your messaging is not effective and you are not getting your story across.
We are experts in creating powerful resumes and letters that clearly show your unique value, and that will break you away from the clutter of the hundreds of resumes employers receive. .
We have unparalleled expertise is in writing senior-level executive and legal resumes, with a specialty in resume development for career changers. Our resumes produce interviews. It is as simple as that.
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, quite literally, as the garbage can.
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 that are relevant, and develop an attractive, modern and computer-friendly set of marketing documents that will enable you to compete effectively in the job market.
One of the key challenges in creating effective personal messaging 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? How does one public company CFO differential herself from another public companuy CFO from the same industry? The answer is by showing results and having a strong Personal Brand Strategy. .
We are markeing professionals here. Brand Strategy is our area of expertise. There is a great deal of competition out there! We will develop strong personal advertising that makes you a winner!
But a great resume is not enough. Research shows the cover letter can be more important than the resume itself. The resume is about your past and what you have done, but a properly done cover letter is about your future and what you can do. There’s a big difference!
The Cover Letter
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.
We also develop special letters to recruiters, we do LinkedIn profiles, and can give you a complete personal advertising campaign.
