If you are about to apply for a job you will hear people telling you to pay attention towards your resume. Many people do not listen to the advice and end up failing to craft their way to the interview table. Most of the times, people start doubting their skills and experience. It is not necessary that you are unable to land an interview in your pocket due to incompetency. There might be some errors in your resume.
Today, I will share my personal experience with you that how a resume written by a pro writer helped me to get a job.
The earlier events
I am a qualified person with a good experience in my relevant work field. A few months ago, like many of you, I was a job seeker. I browse the internet to check for how I can create a good resume and end up writing the information accordingly. However, to my luck, things were not going in my favor, and I was unable to proceed to the stage of the interview.
Therefore, the questions were always there in my mind regarding my skills and qualification. It was somewhat depressing to me. But then, a good friend of mine came up with a suggestion that I must consult a professional writer and get a new resume from scratch. I was reluctant to put the idea into practice. However, I was fulfilling job requirements, and my qualification and experience were both up to the mark, and these were the two motivations that were convincing enough.
Consulting the professionals
I went on to take the services of the professionals. While talking with them, I got to know that there are several things that we people neglect. Things that we do not even consider while writing a resume. And those are crucial ones. That is why most of us, even after possessing right set of skills, fail to land a job in our hands.
The purpose of a resume is to help us reach the interview stage. Depending on the type of job that I am going to apply for, they will be creating a resume that defines my accomplishments in an appropriate manner and helps the employers in knowing why I can be a perfect choice for them.
The difference between a pro resume and an amateur resume
Many people argue that the resume of professionals is no different than the ones that an average person can craft. Well, looking at my experience, I condemn this thought. Just think about it in contrast that you are getting an article written by an amateur and an article written by an expert journalist. Surely, there will be a considerable variation in terms of writing.
In my case, the resume from the experts was:
- Perfect regarding grammar and spelling.
There were no grammatical errors. Think about the impact a resume will put on the employer if the grammar is all incorrect and there are typos?
- Stunning in terms of layout.
Most of us are still working on the designs of the 1980s and 1990s. Well, the employers of this era love catchy layouts that capture their attention. A good template, prepared by a professional resume writer, will attract the eyes of the manager towards your resume.
- Having appropriate information regarding me.
The way these Pro Writers wrote my qualifications, experience and skills were remarkable. After reading it for the first time, I was like “is this my resume? Am I such a qualified and experienced person? If I was to be the employer and an individual with such CV comes to me, I’ll love to hire him.”
The truth is that a resume from experts can really make a difference. I was unable to proceed to interview stages after trying for a couple of months. But with the resume written by experts, after my first attempt, I was sitting on a chair at one end of the table with employers’ panel at the other side for the interview.
