Professional Resume Writing – 30 Seconds For Your Resume

30 seconds!  Yes, that is all the time you have to present an impressive professional image with a “wow factor” that will motivate the reader to take action!  Some surveys show HR professionals and recruiters allocating as little as 15 to 20 seconds to review a resume! Not everyone is a speed reader so you must consider the impact of the overall image and appearance that is presented at first glance if you want to put yourself above the competition. What will the reader see within a few seconds? Will it motivate the decision maker to learn more and call you in for a job interview?

Your initial contact with a potential employer consists only of those few seconds to review your resume making it one of the most important elements in your job search! Your job history is very important but if you have not presented a dynamic resume that inspires the reader to continue reading after their initial impression, your accomplishments may not get the attention you are seeking. Do not miss out on potential job opportunities. The image you portray on your resume is critical!
