Is the “YOU” at the Interview the same “YOU” described in your Resume and Cover Letter?

JaneCo’s Resume Writers Enhance Your Resume and Cover Letters with a Style Analysis.

Is the person described in your resume and cover letter the same person that walks into the interview room?

As your cover letter is being read, the reader perceives a “communication style.” Is that style truly your style, or someone else’s? You deserve and need to have your materials customized to reflect who you are.

A professional resume writer must meet some fundamentally important challenges:  Powerful and dynamic resumes and cover letters that reach beyond work experience to project a professional persona with specific accomplishments showcased appropriately and the writer must do this while captivating the reader with a marketing message that says “Here is the person you have been seeking.”

An interview is the natural consequence of such marketing material.

It is critically important that you, during the interview, appear to be the same person that was perceived on paper.  A “disconnect” here can spell disaster for you, when you may have otherwise experienced a successful job search.

When we write for you, your success requires that we understand your communication style.  And communication isn’t restricted to words or phraseology but it includes ingrained behaviors and personal attributes as well – it comes down to who you are.

A professional communication style analysis is a key resource for us to understand who you are and how you interact with others and the respond to the environment. This understanding is necessary if we actually meet you in person or if we provide our resume and coaching services by email and phone. We are your professional “ghost writers” and we use the widely known and reliable Success Insights DISC Communication and Behavioral Style assessments to quickly and accurately understand your style. The report we get from this process tells us if we need to write assertively or passively or with a people orientation or a task orientation. The reports help us know your soft skills, your transferrable interpersonal strengths that are not only woven into your resume, but into your cover letters as well. Here is an example, using some of the narrative phrases directly from a DISC Style Analysis report: 

“Persistent and persevering in approach to achieving goals …sensitive to others and able to display real empathy for those who are experiencing difficulties …prefers to plan work and work the plan…others find it refreshing to have him on the team…thinks over major decisions before acting…considerate, compassionate and accepting of others…brings both speaking and listening skills to the group”

Your style analysis report gives us the information about your personal characteristics around which to craft dynamic marketing materials. Your resume and cover letter will be uniquely written for you and from your prospective.

DISC Communication and Behavioral assessments not only help us, as we write for you, but the reports also provide tangible evidence of who you are at the interview and serve as highly effective tools that help position you for your interviews with accurate branding statements and the ability to drive certain aspects of the interview.

We find DISC Style Assessments to be extremely valuable and indispensable tools for crafting resumes that work, cover letters that position you to be credible at your interviews, and an invaluable enhancement to our professional writing services with the unique you in mind.

Gambling With Your Career? Use a Professional Resume Writer and Increase Your Odds of Career Satisfaction . . .

Some job seekers think that a professionally written resume is too expensive and that they can’t afford to pay for a professional resume writer, so they attempt to save money by writing their own resume and cover letter. A number of job seekers will fill in a resume template for their attempt to market their skills. Other job seekers assume that by looking at professional resume samples they can write an effective resume in hopes of winning career satisfaction.

When writing your own resume, even by using sample resumes as your guide, you might think you are “stacking the deck” in your favor, but you are actually taking a big risk. A professional resume writer has been educated and is experienced in the necessary strategy to customize the jobseeker’s resume and cover letter samples used as their examples. Without understanding the job seeker’s personal style, nor having an awareness of the writer’s justification for show-casing specific talking points, or having expertise in appropriate resume grammar and/or realizing the relevance of the job seeker’s experience as it relates to the job seeker’s goal, it is not possible to predict that any sample resume would be an effective resume for your unique situation.

Writing your own resume may be a real gamble with your future. Is this game of chance or this trial and error method of a job search worth the risk? How important is your future? Should you risk success, or does it make more sense to use a professional resume writing service?

Are you still wondering about the value of a Professional Resume Writing Service?

Consider many ways we count on professionals.

We don’t question using professional barbers and hair stylists, especially for a special occasion. How do we care for our elegant fashions? Do we not take them to a professional dry cleaner so they are just right for an important event? If we have a critical money matter, we use a professional financial consultant. For vital legal matters, we seek the professional attorney. We don’t let our beloved pets fend for themselves; we take them to the professional – the veterinarian. We us professional wedding planners, professional photographers, weight management professionals, professional body building trainers, professional construction workers, plumbers, carpet installers, and mechanics. We accept that professionals should fly the plane or conduct the train, or treat our broken bones, replace our teeth and the list goes on.

When we want the best services, materials, or advice, we wisely seek the professionals. When we have something of great significance to do, some place very important to go, and special people to visit, we do all we can to be the best that we can be.

So is using a professional resume writer really a luxury that isn’t affordable? Knowing how important, how crucial, how vital your resume and cover letter are to your job search can you afford to consider the resume writer’s fees as wasteful spending or using a professional resume a careless decision? Would you pay out money on a new suit or outfit for an interview, yet be reluctant about an investment in the documents that stand between you and the interview?

Many people spend more money planning and taking a vacation than they spend on securing a successful career. Unlike a special occasion where you’ll sport your new hair style or wear your new outfit for a short time, your resume is going to get you the jobs where you’re likely to spend 40 hours a week for about 50 weeks every year, for 30+ years! Your investment in a professionally written resume increases the probability that your contribution of time, talent and ability at a job will provide a good return in the form of compensation and rewards to reach your goals.

Certainly, in today’s competitive job market, a professionally written resume is not a luxury, but rather a much-needed document to give you the winner’s edge over the competition and provide the payoff of career satisfaction.
