What Makes a Good Resume Good?

There are many aspects of a good resume that be explained briefly enough. Does your past muster? Does it make employers stop and take a second look? Does it make them put it in the “keep” file? Not sure? Read this:

What Is a Resume?

A résumé is a self-promotional document that presents you in the best possible light, for the purpose of being invited to a job interview.

Why choose a professional résumé writer?

Your résumé has only 10 to 15 seconds on average to impress an employer.

Hiring Managers receive hundreds of résumés every day. In just a few seconds (a mere glance) they will decide whether or not to call a candidate for an interview. If your résumé is not conveying the right message, it will land-up where most do – the garbage can. Hiring a professional résumé writer will secure more interviews for you.


Many companies currently utilize an automated résumé database. These databases are basically résumé mines. When a vacancy arises, keywords are used to find the right résumés from among the thousands stored in these systems. If your résumé does not contain the right keywords, it will never be found during such searches.


A résumé is not a just typed sheet. It is a strategic tool used to enhance your chances of getting a job. Are you reaching your target audience? How is your advertising working out for you?

A professionally written résumé shortens the overall job search time.

A well-written, keyword-rich, résumé not only impresses employers, but it also reduces the overall time it takes to find a job. Good résumés get the interviews, and the more interviews you get, the higher your chances are to become employed.
