IS YOUR FIRST HANDSHAKE
WITH A NEW EMPLOYER
Make sure it's a strong and confident one!
Having written over 1,000 resumes for clients across dozens of industries, I am confident I can write you a resume that not only creates a great first impression, but actually opens doors to interviews.
IF YOUR RESUME ISN'T EASY ON THE EYE, IT'S HISTORY.
Put yourself in a potential employer’s shoes… It’s been a hard day and you can’t go home yet because you still have to read a dozen or so resumes. You’re tired, and grumpy. Your eyes feel like sandpaper.
You click on the tenth resume with a sigh – and it just happens to be yours!
You really don’t feel like reading it. You just want to go home. Honestly, at this stage it doesn’t matter if it’s beautifully written or not. More importantly, is it easy to read? Is the information simply presented? Will it be a welcome change for someone who has spent the last hour combing through endless forests of words?
To clinch the deal, your resume needs to get the job done as effortlessly as possible.
Easy to read islands of information
POWERED BY impactful KEY words.
I’ve seen some brilliantly designed resumes, colour-keyed and creatively laid out. As an ex-advertising copywriter I truly do appreciate award-winning eye candy. But when someone’s career is at stake, I prefer logic, readability, and simplicity.
I’m a great believer in providing an environment that allows the eyes to breathe, to have brief rest stops on their long and sometimes tedious journey. Writing impactful words is one thing. Making sure they're read is everything!
