Resumes That Mean Business
Convert Into Interviews
When was the last time you wrote a resume? Traditional resumes are typically yawn-inducing logs of one’s career history from A-Z, right down to high school education, age and marital status. NO. In today’s hyper-competitive, attention-scarce job market, a lean, mean, strategically crafted resume is critical to your job search success.
A strategically crafted resume gives you tremendous power to:
Open the right doors – because it’s written to the job you want.
Control the conversation – because it elicits questions YOU have the answers to.
Maximise your earning power – it can mean a $10,000 to $100,000++ salary difference when you accurately demonstrate your ROI.
Most resumes, however...
Are bland, chock-full of cliches and fail to capture one’s leadership qualities.
Focus only on “what” instead of “so what?”
Are so outdated in form and content you can almost feel the layer of dust on it.
Drown the reader in a sea of text – nothing pops off the page.
KEY TRUTH #1
More people tend to undersell instead of oversell themselves.
While misrepresentation is a genuine concern hiring managers and recruiters have, the truth is that the great majority of jobseekers tend to undersell themselves – intentionally or unintentionally – by not accurately and BOLDLY capturing their value. Result? They shortchange themselves of opportunities they were well qualified for, and deprive the world of their service.
KEY TRUTH #2
You CAN market yourself persuasively without having to be someone else.
The most effective resume takes what you already have and gives it the spotlight it deserves. It’s about emphasis, not exaggeration. The confidence that stems from projecting your authentic self is priceless, especially during the interview – and at the negotiation table.

Do any of these sound like you?
“The thought of compressing 15, 20 years’ experience on paper is overwhelming. Where do I start?”
“I just feel like what I’ve written isn’t an accurate picture of all that I’ve achieved.”
“The last time I wrote a resume was for my first job. I’ve never needed another…till now.”
“I’ve got no problem pitching in person…I just don’t do so well expressing myself on paper.”
“The jobs I apply for fit me to a tee…but I don’t get enough callbacks.”
“I just can’t seem to find the right language to capture my strengths and achievements.”
“I’m getting interviews…for all the wrong jobs!”
