If I had one thing I would urge every job seeker to have regardless of their level of experience or industry, it would be to prepare a High-Quality Resume. When you show potential employers that you take your career professionally and seriously by having a high quality resume in hand they are more likely to give you consideration for employment. A high quality resume is important because it showcases how your education, skill and experience will benefit the employer.
Statistics show that the average employer spends only 10 seconds looking at a resume. Yet it is the first contact you have with the potential employer. Most employers are actually looking for a reason not to interview you. It’s essential to have that perfect, compelling document that reflects who you are, what you’ve accomplished and why hiring you is beneficial to the employer. In this increasingly competitive job market, it’s necessary to have a professionally designed resume in order to stand out among other job seekers applying for the same position. Regardless of your professional and educational background, your career should be summed up in a professional and concise document. The importance of your resume is to make a good first impression and if you cannot achieve this goal then your chances of an interview are lessened. So let’s aim for preparing and keeping updated that high-quality Resume! You deserve it! Your career deserves it! You only have a second to get your resume noticed!
