Does your resume present your strongest skills and most notable career accomplishments to potential employers? Is your resume acting as an effective marketing tool for you? Does your resume describe you personally as a professional in addition to summarizing your work experience?
Your resume needs to standout and impress potential employers or networking contacts within 60 to 90 seconds or your chances of getting an interview are slim to none. The days of presenting your professional experience and scope of expertise in a purely traditional chronological task oriented resume format have long past. The technological world that we live in makes it extremely difficult for you to get noticed when potential employers are inundated with hundreds and sometimes thousands of resumes. Company recruiters are receiving resumes through their website, job boards, recruiting firms, networking contacts and employee referrals. Companies receive a staggering number of resumes for each and every open position.
First impressions count! And your cover letter and resume are your first impression with a potential employer. These documents are the marketing tools that will give you that first opportunity to get your foot in the door with a company of your choice for a position of your choice. Of course, follow through after submitting your resume is also extremely important in landing a job interview, but submission and review of the cover letter and resume are the very first steps in the interview process. Not enough people take the importance of a powerful well-written cover letter and resume seriously enough.
