Great Resumes Fast » Resume Writing Tips » Want the Interview? Then Your Resume Needs Some Passion!

I often tell job seekers how passionate I am about helping them be successful.  I really do have a heart for helping those in the job hunt secure interviews and offers.  When possible, I try to provide as much free advice as I can.  Thinking about how passionate I am about what I do made me wonder about how passionate you are about what you do!

Does your passion come across in your resume and cover letter?  When a hiring manager reads your resume can he tell that you’re passionate about what you do?  If you want to show the hiring manager that you’re passionate about what you do and that you’ll bring that enthusiasm and zeal to your new position here are three ways to do that:

  1. Use quotes and recommendations from previous supervisors.  Someone else’s viewpoint will reinforce your talent, passion, and brand.
  2. Accomplishment-based statements substantiate the results and value you would bring to the employer.
  3. A personal branding statement is a great way to communicate your passion and vision for what you do—as well as what you’re known for.

Create a focused, branded, and passion-filled resume and cover letter—wrapped nicely in a compelling presentation—and you’ve packaged yourself in a way that will secure interviews.

Jessica Hernandez, President, CEO & Founder of Great Resumes Fast

Hi, I’m Jessica. I started this company back in 2008 after more than a decade directing hiring practices at Fortune 500 companies.

What started as a side hustle (before that was even a word!) helping friends of friends with their resumes has now grown into a company that serves hundreds of happy clients a year. But the personal touch? I’ve kept that.

You might have seen me featured as a resume expert in publications like Forbes, Fast Company, and Fortune. And in 2020, I was honored to be named as a LinkedIn Top Voice of the year!

I’m so glad you’re here, and I can’t wait to help you find your next perfect-fit position!
