Most resumes I review will list the company, title, years, and job duties. If you’re working with a professional here are a few things you should expect:
- A new format that includes an excellent eye-appealing design that can be used as an attachment and also passes through the ATS system without any issues. Also, no Word templates.
- Works with you to identify your value and presents it in the resume. This is critical to separate you from the other applicants.
- Understands that your document is a marketing snapshot of your expertise and can work with you to identify the key information without over sharing.
- Presentation of information─it’s more than job duties, and if your writer is trained well, they know exactly how to do this.
- A professional resume writer is up to date on the ATS system and provides a clear explanation to the client about what it is and how it works.
- Keywords are a must. They need to be strategically placed throughout the resume to be picked up electronically and through keyword searches by hiring managers.
- Position placement is also crucial. Professionals are trained to strategically place information in sections of the document.
I hope this helps you when you select someone to write your documents.
