Benefits of a Great Resume

There’s no tool vital to getting your foot in the door and opening up opportunities for the job of your dreams.

A professionally written resume really does put you in the right frame of mind for your job search.  If you look good on paper, you’ll feel good about yourself, about your skills, your experience and what you have achieved.  If your head is in the right place, and you feel confident and upbeat about your offering and your prospects, you’ll give out a positive vibe.  As they say, self-confidence will get you more dates than simply being attractive – self-confidence IS attractive.

A targeted, well-written and attractively presented resume will reduce the legwork in your job search.  You could continue to use your old resume, apply to hundreds of job adverts and, sure, at some point, you may get a response.  Maybe in a month, maybe in a year… who knows?  If you’d rather get results now and save yourself hours and hours of precious time, then a professionally written resume is worth the investment.

Customers often say to me, ‘I didn’t realise how much I had actually achieved, until I saw it all written out on paper’.  Writing a great resume gives me a warm feeling but, more importantly, it gives the individual concerned pride in their accomplishments to date.  Week to week, year to year, there may be certain projects or challenges that give you a sense of achievement, but it’s not often you get to review all of your career highlights in one go.  It’s a revelation!

If you put forward the best possible representation of your professional self, you can truly test what the market thinks you are worth.  A confident summary will position you in the recruiter’s mind – if you recognize your own value, then others will consider you as someone who can command respect and a salary commensurate with what they know they can offer.   Test it out and see just how strong you are.

A great resume can give impetus to your job search – you’ll be excited about it, you’ll want to share it and let people know what you have to offer.

If you have targeted your new resume to meet the requirements of a particular opportunity, your excitement will spread to your recruiter, who will be thrilled that you have made it easy for them to put forward a suitable candidate for their latest vacancy.

If you use your new resume as the basis to update your LinkedIn profile, your professional network will suddenly become aware of your skills and experience.  They may think they know you already, but a professionally written resume can uncover new insights and present you in a new light.  Once they are fully aware of what you have to offer, the next time a relevant opportunity arises, they are more likely to think of you.

Whether you are just starting out or making a considered move from one role to another, your first step forward can be everything.  Get that first job right and everything can roll from there.  A new job can offer extensive learning opportunities (both on-the-job and through formal training), a chance to build and leverage a strong professional network and even develop prospects you never imagined you’d have.

A compelling resume is vital to secure that ideal job.  It’s worth the effort to write one as the rewards could be beyond your wildest imaginings.  If you put out a lackluster resume, chances are that you’ll secure a lackluster job.  You are worth more than that.  So go all out and choose the best version of your future with a first class resume.

I’ve said it before, but this is worth repeating as it really is true, if you feel confident, you will stand straighter.  If you stand straighter, you’ll stand head and shoulders above other applicants.
