There are all kinds of requests for our service. One of the services is “resume editing service“. Let’s look more closely at what this service is.
Let’s say while writing a resume, there were mistakes. And the client needs to correct them. For a better understanding, let’s analyze what they are.
Grammar and punctuation
The grammar and punctuation mistakes are the most common (and deadly for resumes)! Failure to follow basic rules characterizes you as a poorly educated and very inattentive person. Agree, these qualities are not appropriate for a person who positions himself as a professional. But it is not only grammar and punctuation that HR-managers pay attention to. They also pay attention to the structure and form of the resume. Do not forget about it!
Absence of the aim or wrong aim
If you do not specify what position you are applying for, your resume has already started with a gross error. Why? You are forcing the employer to read and digest all of the information you provided, so that at the end he comes up with his own idea of what job you are good for. A resume without a purpose is extra work for the reader.
Emphasis on responsibilities rather than results
Undoubtedly, listing your responsibilities from previous jobs is important, but more important is describing your professional achievements and successes that have made you a valuable employee for previous employers.
Lots of text
A resume where the candidate describes his personal life, achievements, hobbies, marital status, habits, cars, and so on and so forth in detail and artfully, often gets into the curiosity section of professional “bounty hunter” websites.
Extraneous information includes skills and personality traits that are not directly related to the job. No, it’s great, of course, that you dared and somehow jumped with a parachute, that your favorite activity – walking around the city at night, and part of your earnings every year you give to an animal shelter.
Let’s define right away: a resume of a modern candidate must have a photo, and choosing the “right” picture is real, you only need to remember the three main rules/
The first rule is that the photo must “capture” only you, and only against a neutral background. You categorically exclude carpets, wallpaper, beach and other things that are not related to your work. It can just be a bright wall. Yes, don’t forget the clever look in the lens, the photo can be taken in a cafe (you and a cup of morning coffee), and you can also be captured in your current workplace, if the setting allows. The second rule in the photo your face must be clearly visible, therefore, remove sunglasses, take off hats, caps and other things.
If you made at least one such mistake, then turn to us for help, we will fix everything.
