Resume Writing

Your Resume
A good resume cannot get you a job; but a bad resume can prevent you from getting the interview and without the interview, there’s no chance of getting the job. Since your resume is your primary marketing tool for finding a better career opportunity, extra time spent on its preparation is a good investment. All resumes should be accurate and truthful and should highlight your strengths and accomplishments. The best way to explain the “rules” of resume writing is to explain what you should always do and what you should never do.

Always print your resume on standard size white bond paper
Always include your significant accomplishments at each of your jobs
Always use bullet statements when appropriate. It is more readable and tends to stand out more
Always state the truth
Always keep it simple, preferably one page in length
Always proof read your resume and have others proofread it too
Always use a plain font so it is easy to read
Always use plain English. Stay away from multi-syllable words when a one or two syllable word is clearer
Always re-read your resume before every interview – chances are the interviewer did
Avoid the first person pronoun ( ie. I, me…)
Save the details for the interview

Never list references on a resume
Never include your height, weight, or remarks about your personal appearance
Never use exact dates; months and years are sufficient
Never have extraneous pen or pencil marks or correction fluid on your resume
Never lie
Never provide salary information on the resume. Save it for the interview
Never list your high school or grammar school if you are a college graduate
Never include your present employer’s telephone number
Never give a reason for termination or leaving a job on your resume. You are better off explaining it in person

At best, these are just reliable suggestions…from recruiters who know how to make a difference !

Jennifer worked as hard as I did to land me a new job in a great place. I've never worked with a recruiter before and had no idea what to expect. She was very much on top of things, and in these... tough times helped facilitate the process from beginning through actually starting work. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a new career. Thank you Jennifer for all your hard work!read more

M Grill provided the best covid dining experience my fiance and I have ever had. There was a tent set up outside decorated beautifully with market lights. Upon check-in, the host took our temperature... and provided little bags for our masks. Each person was required to wear their mask at all times except when at his or her table. All tables were at least 6-ft apart and in addition to masks, staff also wore face shields. It's safe to say we felt very safe at M-Grill and they were taking great precautions.M Grill was one of the few places that didn't dwindle in quality during the pandemic. Each salad bar item was fresh, each hot item was delicious and each meat was tender, juicy, warm and flavorful. Every item that was available previously is still available now (only difference is that the servers come around with carts to serve the salad bar and hot items). All the food was delicious and quality great!read more

Vanessa Coates is an awesome recruiter. She took the time to really get to know me and what I was looking for in my job search. She coordinated interviews for me, kept me up-to-date with new... opportunities, and made me feel like I was her only client. It's been months since she placed me into a new position and we still stay in touch. I'd highly recommend using Vanessa for your next more

I am so grateful for the opportunity that was presented to me just a couple weeks ago. When Donna reached out I wasn't even actively looking for a new position, but decided to go through the process.... Donna was amazing! She was extremely helpful and basically took care of everything including updating my resume. She answered and sent responses and updates immediately. Even at night and on the weekends. I knew what to expect through the whole process which only took about a week and a half. She made sure I had everything I needed to get the job! This was the easiest job transition I have ever gone through. Thank you so much for everything!read more

I wanted to thank you for your hard work, diligence, professionalism, and teamwork while we worked together to find our Director of Construction. With your contingency approach, we were able to look... at your top candidates and inevitably hired the one that is best suited for this role and our company.The candidate that we hired exceeded our expectations of what this candidate would bring to the table. Your team was able to learn the integral parts of our search and really nailed it when it came to this specific position. Your ability to source top talent and ensure they were fully prepared for the process was exceptional.I will certainly recommend you to other companies and will call you first thing when another position comes open with more
