Resume & CV Writing
Just ONE Resume Lands the Applicant an Interview, Out of Every 200 on the Average Employer’s Desk!
Does Your Resume Stand Out in a Crowd?
A typical job offer today attracts between 100 and 1,000 applicants and your resume is your opportunity to get noticed in a highly competitive crowd. With that many resumes to go through, it’s no wonder the average employer only scans each one for 10 or 20 seconds at most before tossing aside, unless they’ve noticed something that persuades them to read more.
The Only Purpose of Your Resume is to Win You an Interview, so it Needs to be an Effective ADVERTISEMENT that sells YOU!
Think about an ad that has motivated you to buy a particular product in the past. The advertisement obviously caught your attention and it convinced you that you would benefit from specific features of the product if you bought it.
Your resume should be written the same way. It will get the employer’s attention, make them want to read more and it will convince them that YOU are the person they are looking for … THE candidate with the qualities for success that will help them run their business more efficiently.
Simply telling an employer about yourself, your skills and your employment history just won’t get you where you want to be. Unfortunately, this is how most people structure their resumes – whether on their own or with the help of a ‘professional’ – and attempting to improve your chances with eye-catching colours, photos or fancy resume templates only adds to your chance of ending up in the NO pile.
The good news is we don’t just write resumes at Performance Plus, we write subtle yet persuasive SALES copy that makes you stand out in a crowd.
Your Performance Plus Resume will:
- COMPEL an employer sit up and take notice of you.
- Make you STAND OUT as a superior candidate for the role
- PERSUADE an employer to invite you for an interview – even over applicants more qualified than you.
Whether you are seeking a complete change of career or simply looking for a way to improve your present employment situation, don’t let that opportunity slip by because you’ve attempted to write your own resume or employed a ‘resume typing service’ …
