Louise Kursmark has a book entitled, “30 Minute Resume Makeover“. I would like to give those motivated job seekers and career changers who are excellent writers, 3 compelling reasons to purchase Louise’s book and change your resume:
#1 You know your skills, you know your job, and you are a value to your current company. At this point, you are not sure how to focus your skills to start to leverage interviews, but you need a bit of direction.
- Louise takes you from point #1 on a vague document and walks you to best practices on how to offer you resume specific skills and phrases on how to ramp up your document. For example, in chapter 1, she helps you to assess if your current resume is doing the job. And we know that it is not, because you do not have any interviews lined-up from you efforts. I recently met a young college graduate, who is a dynamic writer and has been taking conversational Chinese. This young lady needs Louise’s book, as she needs direction on how to specifically showcase her talents.
#2 You know that you have received training, completed your military career and have been writing and editing your professional associations quarterly blog. However, talent is not where you are lacking, it’s the need to be transformed. As a job seeker, you need guidance to help you to focus your skills, accomplishments, achievements and unique value to your intended audience. And this audience now consists of LinkedIn Future Networkers, ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems), Hiring Screeners, Team Leaders or other Human Resources Professionals.
- Louise puts together an exquisite resume transformation section in Chapter 4 that is loaded with situational examples. There is no way that you can lose, as Louise is a powerhouse as a career and job development career thought leader who can surely groom you from ‘inadequate, vague resume writer’ to ‘experienced, talented focused resume writer’.
#3 You can write, you are connected with industry professionals and you have the latest certification in your field. However, you have not been taught how to kill your cover letter. You know your value, you love your industry, yet you have not been coached on how to convince your readers of your capabilities. Chapter 5 helps you to tell you key audience members the ‘what they are receiving’ and ‘why’, you will feel empowered to target you resume and its related cover letters, bios, e-portfolios and LinkedIn profile in a manner that that is sure to evoke interviews!
After all, the purpose of your resume is to seek to connect within 30 days to key hiring officials, HR Screener and team leaders who ask you to converse about joining their team. The 30 Minute Resume Makeover is the #1 resource that you are sure to want to have in your collection to help you to move from where you are to where you need to be. And just in case you can say it, Let Me Write It For YOU!
