Have you submitted your current resume and not getting any calls?
Studies say that employers will take only twenty seconds to look at this one-page representation of yourself before deciding whether to keep or discard it. To ensure that you will make it past that initial screening, you should design your resume in such a way that employers can read the document easily and process information quickly.
As a job seeker, you are selling a very important product - YOU! Since you will be marketing yourself to potential employers, you can view the resume as your "sales brochure." A good sales brochure will always describe both the features and benefits of the product. Therefore your resume should describe your features (your strengths, expertise, experience, education and accomplishments) and your benefits (the results you have produced for past employers.) Your professional resume writer will help your new looking resume stand out from the crowd.
Statistics show that the average resume is read about 20 seconds, do you think YOUR resume will stand out among the others? We want you to be confident in presenting your resume to your prospective employer, which will consequently lead to a successful job interview.

In order to accomplish this, your resume needs to be tailored or "targeted" towards the specific type of position you are seeking. Instead of simply providing a laundry list of past jobs and responsibilities, your resume must be a powerful selling tool, which showcases the ultimate value of hiring you.
