Resume Writing Process.
If you’ve never truly felt proud of your resume, this will be an exciting and enlightening experience for you- as you will see yourself in a new way, hopefully, a better way- on a document that truly highlights your skills ( I mean the real skills that you’ve always wanted to say but couldn't find the right words).
Laser-Focused Detail: 7-Point Resume Check
Our client's success is at the forefront of all decisions. Therefore, we’ve evolved our process to
include a 7-point inspection before you even receive the draft. These steps include:
robust intake process
a competitor scan on LinkedIn of professionals in similar roles or who are in the position
you want to be in
2 rounds of ATS scans to “fake apply” you to jobs to uncover your match on the top 4 ATS systems (Oracle, Workday,Taleo & SuccessFactors)
a double check with a partner or peer in the industry you are in or want to be in, in fact, we
partner with quite a few recruiting firms so we always double-check our work to ensure we
are on track (on top of over a decade of experience in recruiting)
a scan against the jobs you have sent and 5 similar jobs to check keywords
an assistant or intern double-checks the draft against your intake form to ensure nothing is
missed - we also train up-and-coming resume writers so we often have a “fresh” pair of eyes review your resume draft
the most important check is with YOU after all of this- we send a first draft questionnaire for
you to complete to ensure we are on track
BONUS- a word cloud check, we remove all of the graphics and purely check the words and
compare them against your jobs to see what words show up the most and match - in essence,this is what an ATS system does

Why work with a resume writer in the first place?If you select the right resume writer- which you have - resume writers who are also HR pros understand what works and what doesn't work on a resume that will help you stand out. I’ve seen thousands of resumes and hired for roles at all levels of an organization so the feedback you will receive will be rooted that that- however all hiring managers and recruiters look for different things so the key is to ensure you are telling your story, highlighting your career brand, and can speak to the reason why you are the PERFECT FIT. Your resume must satisfy the needs of not just the knowledgeable decision-maker but that of HR person who may have limited knowledge and may spend under one minute in a quick scan of your document.
