Your executive resume—your self promotional marketing tool—has but one purpose: To get you interviews so you can get hired. Period.
Our job is to do just that. You can purchase a resume that sounds good. But if it doesn't work, it isn't worth a dime. Certified Resume Writer and Personal Branding pioneer, Evelyn Salvador, knows exactly what makes a resume work and what doesn't.
Though some say a resume cannot get one hired, her resume success rate proves otherwise. When hiring managers view her clients’ resumes more often than not they have already decided her clients are so suitable for their open position that meeting with them just becomes the next step to offering the position.
In fact, Evelyn’s resumes help position clients in the Top 2 Percent in their field of expertise. She crafts interview-generating resumes for executives in every industry with exceptional writing quality, professional design, and a high return on your investment.
IRING MANAGERS SELECT OUR CLIENT RESUMES OVER 98% OF OTHERS
"I relocated to Florida and received 5 interviews in 3 days, and obtained a job within one week at my New York salary. Before the interview even started, the Hiring Manager told me, ‘I can tell from your Resume that you are management material. You’re hired!’"
THINK ABOUT YOUR ROI
Our resumes are so successful, they go beyond just getting your foot in the door.
They are expertly crafted by an industry leader to showcase how well a fit you are for the position you seek by identifying, defining, and marketing your Personal Brand which compels hiring managers to seek you out over the competition.
We do this by determining all of your related assets, the benefits of those assets to an employer, your competitive edge over other jobseekers, the value proposition you bring to an employer, and your return on investment, and we include your matching achievements.
Our career management services help careerists land jobs more quickly, negotiate higher salaries, and significantly shorten their job search time. Some of our clients have actually doubled—even tripled—their previous salary.
Be sure to consider your salary potential in selecting a resume firm and determine what a high return on investment means to you. You can also potentially save thousands of dollars in lost income by getting hired more quickly.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
A few pieces of paper—your resume—can make the difference of whether or not you are connected with that next position.
Because there are so many resume firms on the Internet today—some not skilled at all, some highly skilled, and others that fall in between—selecting the right firm can be a daunting task with the results being the difference between advancing your career or not. The old adage, “you get what you pay for” couldn’t be more true in resume writing.
If you are unsure, see the guide on Selecting a Resume Service to help you make an informed decision based upon the quality of work generally provided by different types of resume firms with the price range charged versus the time it may take to gain interviews—which generally correlates.
