Addressing Most Common Resume Problems

Experienced job seekers know how hard it is to get an interview call from a reputable company, let alone be hired. As most of you know there are many factors which define whether a candidate will be considered for the position. One of the first marketing tools in the job search process is your resume or CV (most people use these terms interchangeably although there is some difference between these two). This document often becomes the key criteria by which hiring authorities judge whether you are worth their time and attention. Therefore, the more professional attitude you will have about resume writing, the more chances you will have for getting that interview invitation.

Generic Resumes

Employment contractOne of the most serious resume writing mistakes is a generic approach. We understand that people don't have much time to spend on developing a resume or CV; as a result, they simply list the most important information about their work experience and education and send it out to different companies. This way job hunters believe they save time hoping one of the companies on the list would invite them back for an interview. However, such an approach isn't effective at all because what usually employers receive is a generic resume that doesn't really grab their attention. If you put yourself in the position of a hiring manager reviewing application documents of the candidates you will understand why generic resumes are not effective at all. In order to create a resume that would be appealing for the hiring authorities, you have to develop a unique CV. In other words, it shouldn't be written based on one of the templates found online.

The problem with templates is that they are never specific enough in terms of job openings. Resume templates are usually posted online so that job seekers could see how the content should be structured and prioritized. Taking shortcuts in the job search can negatively impact your future career. Keep in mind that in order to generate the attention of the decision makers you have to stand out (which is possible when you have unique content, not the one copy-pasted from job descriptions found online). So there is no really any magic pill when it comes to a successful job search. All you have to do is simply to do your homework well - to create an appealing resume/CV. This can be achieved by careful analysis of the job description (especially the requirements and desired qualifications sections) and writing of resume in accordance with those requirements. Obviously, we assume you adjust your resume for each and every job listing; otherwise, it is impossible to be effective in the job each process no matter how hard you try.

Thank you for the wonderful resume and layout. I am pleased with the work. My job search will kick into high gear in December so I will probably be using cover letter service then. Please add the gaduation date from Excel Technical college as 1998. Thank you so much.

Well written and it doesn't concentrate on the foodservice manager, a field I do not want to work in.

I wanted to let you know that I got the resume the very day you sent it out. My interview was scheduled for Tuesday and that same night, by 10 pm, I got an email from the principal informing me that the position was mine. The result was superquick!!! The job’s at the school I really wanted to be a part of. Thanks a million!!!
