Great Resumes Fast » Interviews » Does Your Resume Have A Strategy Or Is It Just A Pretty Format and Fluffy Words?

In the last couple of years resume writing has changed dramatically.  We’ve seen a shift in formats, trends, content, and positioning.  Gone are the days of objective statements and lists of duties in short bullet point format.  The drive for branding, positioning, compelling presentations, and captivating content have taken over.

I started Great Resumes Fast after 10 years working in human resources and staffing.  I saw a desperate need with job seekers—so many had no idea how to develop an interview-winning resume, and I was on a mission to help educate them!  I think that’s one of the reasons why so much of what we do offers free tips, advice, and resources to job seekers.  I’m still on that mission to educate the masses.  Be that as it may, I started this journey with a passion to help, and my team has grown by a few people, but they’re as equally passionate as I am.

Our writers are some of the most sought after, elite writers in the industry.  Highly credentialed and trained by the prestigious resume writing academy, our writers do more than just develop resumes and cover letters.  They craft career documents that position our clients as leaders in their industry, they create strategies that produce immediate results, and they develop and incorporate personal branding into each and every resume.

Yes, there is a difference between that $150 resume service and our service.  We are not a budget resume service.  When you hire us you get quality time and attention.  But far more important, you get immediate results.  In the past month alone more than 90% of our clients have had 3 or more interviews within the first two weeks of using their new resume and cover letter. Our clients get these results because of our exclusive resume development and branding process.  When we craft a resume and cover letter for you, you’re not just getting any resume and cover letter—you’re getting a branded, bold, and authentic document developed with a customized and targeted strategy catered to your specific job search.  Our strategy development and branding process is exclusive to our service; you won’t find it anywhere else, and It’s the main reason why our resumes and cover letters are significantly more successful than the other guys’.

So my question to you—does your resume have a strategy?  If it doesn’t, then it’s directionless and will most likely stumble, fall short, and be a source of disappointment for you.  If your resume has no clear direction, intention, or mission, then you have no edge in the marketplace and will ultimately find your job search taking significantly longer than it should.  Take some time to think about what it is you want from your job search, what positions you’re looking for, what the requirements are for those positions, and how you can brand yourself.  Then develop a strategy for how to best communicate that information in your resume.  If you’re overwhelmed with the resume development process or aren’t sure how to create your brand or your resume strategy, then call and speak to us today so you can start interviewing tomorrow.  Visit or call 800.991.5187.
