Pax Ivanna. resume. September 24th , 2017.
Certifications are proof that the writer takes her skill seriously and is committed to professional excellence. It is surprising for many people to hear that there are professional associations for resume writers, but there are! Two of the best known include NRWA and PARW/CC, and many professional resume writers belong to these and other associations that serve the career coaching and employment services profession in general. Most of these organizations offer their own version of training and certification programs. It is possible to find a good writer who has not attained certification, but choosing a certified professional ensures that you are working with a professional whose work has passed the rigorous examination of her peers and whose knowledge of the industry has been tested. Some of the tests and programs are more difficult than others. The most significant certifications have prerequisites, test a number of areas of competence, use a blind assessment process, and have annual training requirements to maintain the writer's skill and certification.
Resumes with margins that don't line up, miss-matched fonts, typos, misspellings, mixed up verb tenses and grammatical errors fail. It's as simple as that. Proof read exhaustively. It would be tragic to lose out on your dream job because your resume contained these easy to fix errors.
Its shocking to me that the majority of job hunters are still using an objective. First, let me say STOP THAT! Next, let me tell you why: An objective is all about what you want. Truthfully, hiring managers couldnt care less. Your objective statement means absolutely NOTHING to them. It does not make you stand out, it does not position you as a leader, and frankly, instead of getting you somewhere, firmly plants you three steps back. However, a personal branding statement, followed by a career summary that is strategically formulated around your unique promise of value, is the golden ticket. If that was Greek to youand you have no idea what Im talking abouthold on, its about to get better.
Unless you are applying for a specific position in a specific company, usage of the objective statement is pass. You are looking for a sales job. Your skills and achievements have been highlighted and thats all that sales recruiters are looking for.
