Custom Designed Résumés

You’re in the market for a new job,
but first you need to get your resume in order.
Or maybe not.

Before you decide to invest in a professionally written resume, consider the following questions:

  1. What positions are you targeting? (job titles and industries)
  2. What do companies in your target market need to meet their business challenges and thrive?
  3. What are your 3 strongest job skills/areas of expertise?
  4. What problems are you best at solving?
  5. What do you believe sets you apart from other professionals with similar skills and backgrounds?
  6. If there were only 3 things you could share with an employer about your knowledge, skills, abilities, talents and background, what would they be?

If you can answer all of these questions… Great!
