Resumes and Cover Letters

That open doors and get results . . .

. . . That sell instead of just tell.

Do your resumes and letters niche you appropriately and compellingly within that 15 -20 second initial screening by the hiring manager or recruiter? That is your first window of opportunity!

If not, you need Ruth Robbins, principal of Career Momentum to roll up her sleeves for you!

  • Be ready to tweak each resume just a little for each opportunity.
  • See if you can quantify your accomplishments: ask yourself 'how did I make a positive difference' in my position?
  • Don't over focus on the minute details of your duties and responsibilities unless it sells you to your target audience.
  • Ensure that your resume resonates to your target audience -- keep an eye out for and eliminate too much 'internal' company jargon.

For dynamic resumes and cover letters that will get you noticed, contact Ruth today.
