The first step in the development of your personal brand is the preparation of a well prepared resume.
We will work with you to distillate your key contributions & achievements, management style & areas of expertise into a concise, impactful document that translates to interviews.
The Resume Writing Process
Stage 1 Information Gathering & Consultation
In this stage, we will take the time to understand your career history, key strengths, leadership style as well as personal goals and aspiration.Do send your existing resume as well as any other career documents to us. It will be best if you are also able to provide the job description of the role(s) that you are interested in.
Stage 2 Strategy Development
It is essential to have a clear objective and strategy in the development of your resume. We will set the tone and direction of your career document in this stage. These are the following focus sections that we will work on:
Focus Section (1): Executive Summary
An impactful paragraph or two, that summarises your experience, qualifications and key functional strengths.
Focus Section (2): Areas of Expertise
With the electronic submission of all resumes these days, it is important that your resume score well in resume processing engines, otherwise known as applicant tracking systems (ATS). This will ensure your resume stand out in both job boards and company candidate databases.
Focus Section (3) Key Contributions
You are being hired for what you can do for the company. In this focus area, we will work on highlighting your key contributions in your past roles. Your leadership qualities will also be emphasized upon.
At this stage, a first draft will be sent to you for your review.
Stage 3 Evaluation of Career History
We will carefully evaluate the content, quality and effectiveness of the details of your job history. Some candidates include excessive detail, while others erred in the opposite extreme. Achieving a perfect balance will be our chief objective here.
Stage 4 Review & Finalisation
During this stage, we will review the prepared document (s) in close consultation with you, and make any final changes. As the resume is a very personal document, we always ensure that the tone and language used reflects the individual.
Your resume has been completed and you are ready to score interviews!
Get Your LinkedIn Profile Prepared by The Executive Resumes!
Often, recruiters and HR managers will review a candidate’s LinkedIn Profile before deciding whether or not to shortlist the candidate for in-person interviews. Candidates with a professionally prepared LinkedIn Profile have a much higher chance to land a job as it gives HR managers a better impression of your dedication and commitment, draw attention to your application and motivate the reader to shortlist you for interviews.
Some employers will also use software to search the web and assess your social media presence. Cultivate your brand online. Make sure the facts represented through your social media profiles are consistent with your resume and applications.
If you have been sending out tens or even hundreds of job application with no response, the problem may lie with your LinkedIn Profile. A non-existent or abandoned LinkedIn profile reflects very badly on you as a candidate. It suggests that if you cannot be bothered about your professional online presence, the same would apply to your work attitude.
Let us help you maximise your professional potential with a search engine optimised, customised LinkedIn Profile that will impress recruiters and hiring managers.
