Each resume is written to target your particular employment field with important categories to ensure optimal Internet posting resume placement. These categories include resume key words, a resume profile, and specific resume headings to make it easy to process your employment experience. Our writers use varied resume formats in chronological, functional, and mixed variations. There are times when a bio or resume letter is also a viable marketing tool.
"A great resume is not just a complete list of employment and education. . . it's got to be a selling document," says Kathryn Troutman, president of The Resume Place in Catonsville and author of the Federal Resume Guidebook. "Your resume needs to make very clear that you are highly skilled and an excellent candidate for their position, with energy and enthusiasm for your career," Ms. Troutman adds. "A resume is like a snapshot," agrees Nancy Leaderman, one of two resume specialists (along with Debra Varron) at The Associated's Jewish Vocational Service, which offers a full range of employment counseling and programs, including resume preparation and job-seeking workshops. "You wouldn't have a picture of yourself taken without combing your hair, putting on lipstick, or whatever it takes to make yourself look as attractive as possible. It's the same thing with a resume. . .this is your first impression."
Start your review of The Resume Place.
Kathryn and her team helped helped me land my current job at a prestigious Baltimore-based organization. Their writing style captured all the things that made me an asset to my past employers and showed me as a valued addition to future ones. With the resume they did for me I was also referred for 3 GS positions (2 of them at the GS-13 level). I would not hesitate to utilize their services or recommend that others do so.
If you are or know someone who is a military spouse, Kathryn's knowledge of Program S is unparalleled. I would encourage any military spouse to seek professional counsel before applying for this hiring option. A stellar resume really makes a difference in what jobs you get matched for.
The Resume Place hasn't seen the last of me. I'll be back as I continue my professional development.
