Choosing the right service

You need to be very careful when choosing a resume writing service as anyone can put up a sign that they write resumes. Your resume is the most important document in your career and should not be rushed. We use both a questionnaire and a phone interview. The questionnaire helps jog your memory and will make you think a bit about things that you may have forgotten. In fact, it not only helps you get a better resume, it helps you prepare for a job interview as well

Be sure to view our sample resumes. This will enable you to see the quality of our resumes.  We focus on skills, accomplishments, and your professional profile; the things that impress and employer. We know that a well written resume will increase your chances of getting your new job, and we are ready to craft a professional document to your precise needs.

We are not a resume sweatshop. We handle a limited number of orders per month so that maximum attention can be paid to each resume we produce.

What do employers really want from college grads?

Mourya Abbareddy, 21, expects to graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va. in the fall.

 

You hear it all the time. A college degree is pretty much a must these days in the workforce. But employers often complain that today’s college graduates aren’t cutting it. Marketplace teamed up with The Chronicle of Higher Education to find out what exactly employers are looking for from today’s grads.

In our survey of about 700 employers around the country, nearly a third said colleges are doing a “fair” to “poor” job of producing “successful employees.” Despite persistently high unemployment, more than half of the employers said they had trouble finding qualified candidates for job openings.

So what gives? We decided to put one of these dissatisfied employers in a room with a soon-to-be college graduate, in a sort of mock job interview.

10 Job Skills Every Employer Wants

With competition for new jobs at an all-time high, employees must have the skills employers are targeting.

From the ability to communicate effectively to the willingness to wear multiple hats around the office, employers today seek workers with a variety of the skills. Here are 10 skills employers look for most in today’s fast-paced, technologically advanced workplace:

Commitment

Commitment to both their job and their employer is something Dennis Boone, former president and CEO of Verizon New Jersey and the current director of Montclair State University’s Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship at the School of Business, has always looked for in workers.

“An employee committed to achieving their goals and objectives is a marvel to witness,” Bone told BusinessNewsDaily. “I especially value the employee that, when times are tough, continues to strive for solutions and refrains from the ‘blaming others’ behavior that, unfortunately, we see too often.”

Top 6 things not to do in your job search

By David Bakke, MoneyCrashers.com contributor

Although the economy has shown some recent signs of recovery, the current unemployment rate stands at 7.5 percent.

Since there are plenty of obstacles standing in your way to a new job, it’s imperative to hone your approach. See if you’re making any of these job-hunting mistakes, and fix them before it’s too late:

1. Not proofreading your résumé
The quality of your résumé is what forms most potential employers’ first impression of you and opens the door to job interviews, so it’s important to make sure it’s perfect. Whether you create one on your own or have it professionally prepared is up to you; just be sure it is 100 percent error-free.

In addition to making the paper version of your résumé perfect, make sure the one you send via email delivers without any messed-up formatting or funny breaks. To create a version of your résumé that can be embedded in the body of an email, remove all current formatting by opening your résumé and saving it as a plain text (.txt) file — and remember to click on the box that says “insert line breaks.” Then, reopen it with the Notepad program. Be sure that all of the text is flush with the left-hand side of the document, and ensure that you have used only clear, easy-to-read fonts. Save that version and you’re done. Email it to yourself to review what it looks like when it arrives.

6 Tips For Following Up After A Job Interview

If you’re not using the best, most effective methods of following up after a job interview, you’re missing out on the chance to score some easy points that just could push you over the top and out of the unemployment line.

Make sure you’re going above and beyond to impress interviewers and secure the job. Here are some guidelines for the perfect interview follow-up strategy.

1. Sooner Is Better

In a recent CareerBliss Poll asking how soon people follow up after a job interview, 39 percent of respondents said they do it the next day. Good answer, according to Career Expert, Vicky Oliver.

Oliver, author of 301 Smart Answers to Tough Interview Questions, said the best time to reach out after an interview is within 24 hours. The 61 percent of poll respondents who said they wait two to three days, a week or never follow-up should take note.

“If you’re incredibly lucky,” Oliver said, “the interviewer will hit the e-mail back to you saying she/he really enjoyed meeting you and – voila! – now you’re in the running! These rules apply even if an executive recruiter helped you land the interview.”

Recovering from a Resume Typo

Couldn’t resist posting this!

I was nervous. Two interviews with my would-be boss had gone well, and the last hurdle between me and a great copywriting job was an interview with the vice president. I was feeling good about my chances, but I was nervous.  And that feeling was about to get much, much worse.

She was on the phone, but she waved me in and pointed to the chair across from her. As I sat down, I glanced at the one document on her desk – my resume, with two glaring red-marker circles. As she talked, I looked at the two words that had been circled:

Is this happening to you?

Do you wish you had a dollar for every resume you have emailed, mailed, or personally walked in? Have you grown old waiting by the phone for that call to schedule an interview? You can’t understand it, you have a great resume, all six pages of it. Heck, it took you a whole evening to type it during the commercials. You may get a chuckle out of the cartoon, but in reality, it has a lot of truth. The majority of resumes do not get read. It’s true, and here are some of the reasons why.
