Why Resume Writing Services Are Not Enough

Most Resume Writing Services Won't Get You the Job!

You Need More Than Resume Writing Services!

Today with smartphones and new technology worldwide, hiring managers are getting 100s of applications for each job...

On average, every corporate job opening attracts 250 resumes... But only 4 to 6 of these people will be called for an interview, and only 1 of those will be offered a job.


1 of 250 means 97% don't get the job!

You Have Seconds With Resume Writing Services

The Ladders did an eye scan study in that proved just how fast recruiters initially go over your résumé and what they look for... (average on left; professional on right)

If You Pass, How Much Time?

The original recruiter study in 2012 said 6.2 seconds.
A May 2018 article from a 20-year recruiter said you have 5 seconds... and they don't even work!

Then, in November 2018 Ladders redid their study, confirming you get 7.4 seconds... So 6 years later the eye scan time actually went from 6.2 to 7.4 seconds. Woo-hoo!

The point? You’d better POP in seconds! I'd say you get 3 seconds or less, for the initial decision to even keep reading. That's where Profiles That POP!™ can help.

You Need More Than Resume Writing Services…

The do-it-yourself résumé (shown on the left in the picture above) barely got a glance. And mostly in one area.

On the other hand, look at the red in the professional one shown on the right. It's going to all the key résumé areas! Thus, getting you a better initial scan and interest. Recruiter eyes focus the most on the red. You want to be the most red, pun intended. 

Here are some of our real before and after Résumé Examples.
