Resume & Cover Letter - Opportunity is Knocking, Will You Answer?

Making Your Mark

Resumes and cover letters are critical documents to have possession of when you are actively seeking a new career. Why? Attention grabbing resumes and cover letters are needed to make you stand out in a crowd. Seizing the attention of the decision maker is key as they review all the applicants for the open position. When something attracts their attention, they are more likely to read through the entire letter and resume, rather than quickly scanning over the contents and moving to the next resume before deciding whether you are the most qualified applicant. By being aware of the demands that are placed upon these managers, and by providing them with something that is fresh, creative and unique, you have the upper hand. 


Confidence in your resume is truly important. Since this is essentially a summary of your employment, education and personal history, you must be original and distinctive when preparing these documents. This requires three key elements. Preparation, preparation and preparation. If you are like many busy executives you probably do not have the time to thoroughly prepare these documents. You may be considering hiring a successful resume writing company who has established itself in this field. Then you are possibly considering hiring a firm who provides career assessments, targets the distribution of your resume and who also can help you find the perfect position for you. To make life really easy, find a company who handles both avenues of employment help.
