The Resume Process

If you have faced increased competition in the workforce during a recession or in boom times, and have been unable to get a job, you need a more effective resume that will market you as an absolutely invaluable employee.

At Quality Resumes by Ed Bagley, you will never have to worry about trying to perfect your own resume again. You’ll love my incredibly simple marketing strategy that allows you to secure job interviews, instantly dominate your competition, get an offer, and start making money in your new job.

Five Reasons Why a Top-Notch, Quality Resume is Crucial for Your Future Success

1) You need to get attention.

Potential employers do not know how competent you are, or how your skill set and abilities could fit their needs. They are not going to show up on your doorstep to offer you a job. You have to announce yourself to the world of possible employers. You have to leapfrog over the competition. Today in America, millions of workers are unemployed or underemployed, and many are competing for the same position you want.  So how can you leapfrog the competition?

2) You need a quality resume, and have a pro’s pro do it for you.

The way to leapfrog over the competition and get the attention is to market yourself at a higher professional level.  To market yourself at a higher professional level, you need not just any resume, but a quality resume that is head-and-shoulders above your competitors.  If 200 potential hires throw their hat in the ring for a paying position, your resume needs to be, hands down, the best resume among the 200 that are received. You could hire a professional resume service with a professional resume writer.

First impressions are certainly important as the first impression many times just also happens to be the last impression and the only impression.

3)  You need to secure a job interview.

Remember that, 999 times out of a 1,000, an interview precedes a job offer in the hiring process. If you cannot land an interview, no matter how gifted you are, your application process is dead in the water.  When unemployed or underemployed, too many potential candidates focus on getting another job, when their focus should be on getting interviews. To get that all-important interview, you need a quality resume that creates a positive impression of you—sight unseen, up front, ink on paper, so they are excited about you, and want to interview you. After you land an interview, how do you sell yourself?

4) You need to shine when the bright lights are focused on you.

Most people are uneasy when walking into a job interview.  Let’s face it. You have no opportunity at an interview to prove yourself on the job.  Most often, people you do not know will determine whether you get a job offer or not.  Someone else will decide, during your interview, whether you will be able to feed your family, and pay your bills on time.

My job is to turn your negative energy into positive energy when it counts.  To do that, you need more knowledge and understanding about the job marketplace, and how it operates, because the current marketplace and job hiring tactics are not going to change to suit your needs. You are ultimately going to have to change and adapt to meet marketplace practices and standards to successfully secure a job offer, and get the job you want.

Read and think very carefully about these two statements because they apply exactly to 99% of the clients who come to me for help:

What you did to get where you are at will not be enough to get you where you want to go.

To get what you have never had, you must do what you have never done.

5)  What you don’t know can hurt you.

The old adage, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you,” is terrible advice when applied to writing a resume, or having a job interview.  What you do not know can cost you a job offer and a job in the same instant.  It is a given that you must use the force of your personality and verbal skills to sell yourself at an interview, but that is not enough.  You also need to be well-informed about what to expect, and what to do when the pressure is on.

Don’t remain stuck in an underemployed rut. The more knowledge and understanding you have of resume writing and the job marketplace, the sooner you are going to get where you want to go.

When you decide to hire me as your writer and mentor, I will personally work with you. I will listen to you, and ask pertinent questions to help assess your unique situation, and your objectives.

Here’s the process you can expect when you hire me to write a resume for you:

Information Gathering

After our personal face-to-face interview (if you are within driving distance), I will email you an information-gathering form that is designed to help me showcase your talents and abilities. After acquiring information that reflects positively upon you, I use my judgment, writing talent, experience, expertise and presentation skills to figure out not just what to say, but how to say it. We want to move people to pick up the phone and call you because they are impressed with your accomplishments and qualifications. We want them to be excited about interviewing you.

Writing and Proofing

Once the information gathering process is completed, I can normally produce the written project within 14 working days. I am a busy professional, and handle multiple projects simultaneously. Then, you will proofread your project. After making any corrections or necessary changes, I will print your hard copy resumes, cover letters, stationery and deliver the accompanying envelopes.

Estimated Project Completion Time

A typical project will be completed in 2 to 3 weeks. If I am are working with a client at a distance, it does take more time to connect on the phone, and online with email.

I am in the business of creating a positive impression of who you are up front so prospective employers get excited about you, and will want to interview you. My workmanship and high professional standards are reflected in each successful product produced for each satisfied client.
