When you’re job-hunting, a professional resume can make all the difference in helping you to get an interview.
Sure, you could write your resume yourself, but you’ll only know if it’s not working when you don’t get interviews, and by then, you’ve missed out on potential job opportunities.
If you’re in the market for a job in Australia, here are seven reasons to work with a professional Australian based resume writer.
A professional resume writer:
1. Knows just how much, and how little, information to include in your resume.
While there is no hard and fast rule about the length of a resume, in our experience getting the right balance between too much and not enough information is a skill that’s developed through experience.
2. Understands how robots and resume screening software is used.
This means that we can format the resume for greater success in getting your key messages read by the non humans and then, ultimately passed on to be read by humans.
3. Understands industry keywords and how to use them.
This means that your experience will be presented in the very best light.
4. Knows how to write those tricky sentences.
You know, the ones which explain why you’ve had a career break, been let go, or only worked in an organisation for a very short period.
5. Is able to tease out information from your past that brings out the best in your application.
For example things that:
- you might not know are relevant and that can strengthen your application.
- you’ve forgotten about and probably think don’t matter, but we know they will make a difference.
6. Has an excellent grasp of written Australian English.
If this isn’t your strength your application can borrow ours in order to put your best foot forward!
7. Understands the best format to appeal to an employer.
We’ve written, and screened, thousands of resumes and therefore know what a good resume looks like.
