Focusing on what you have accomplished will help to set you apart from your peers. You should highlight the value youve brought to companies and the success that they have seen while you are there. Companies are looking for game-changers they want 5 star recruits not 2 star players who are not up to the challenge. You have to make yourself into a 5-star recruit you cannot rest on your laurels and hope for the best. Spotlighting your success will show potential employers that you are capable of outperforming your peers.
Use good quality paper and a laser printer Dont skimp on paper quality with your resume it leaves a bad impression. Poor quality paper creases and wrinkles easier. Use a laser printer to make sure your resume doesnt smudge or smear. Always use white paper for easier photocopying and avoid color in your resume. Black and white is the way to go.
No sample resumes are accessible. A competent resume writing service will provide a number of samples for review. You can assess the quality of their work only if have these samples. If there are no samples available on their website ask them for the specimens of their work. If they are unable to provide satisfactory examples of their work you had better opt for another service.
When people apply for positions and send PDFs the employer or recruiter has to open each email download the resume and view it. Since there are many unemployed and underemployed people job hunting there are many job applicants applying for positions and because of the time it takes to view each PDF many applicant resumes may never get seen. When job applicants send a direct link to a resume page its much quicker to view a job applicants resume. If an employer or recruiter likes the resume page they can down the resume right from the resume website site and also view the job applicants complete online profile.
