It's not what you know, it’s what you can prove.

Resume writing and interviewing trends have changed. Is your resume ready for 2021?
Hiring managers and recruiters expect top-notch, optimized resumes loaded with content showing how awesome you are. Formatting and content requirements have undergone some upgrades as well. If you hope to be called for an interview, your resume needs a lot more punch than the standard bullet list of duties and responsibilities. Additionally, you’ll find that many companies are conducting interviews via Zoom rather than in-person so you’ll need to learn to be camera ready.
If you think hiring managers and recruiters sit around with a cup of coffee personally reading the hundreds of resumes received for one job post, think again. They now have software programs that do the grunt work. If you’ve submitted a resume for a job and haven’t received a reply, you may have become victim to the “Applicant Tracking System” (ATS), a virtual resume gatekeeper. The golden key to opening the hiring manager’s door is a well-written resume, properly aligned with the job post or desired position.
If your resume isn’t set up properly, the chances of it being seen by a human set of eyeballs are slim to none.
You know what else? Using generic terms like “strong management skills,” and following that up with a list of bullet points reflecting your daily job duties won’t cut it anymore. To get noticed, you have to prove to the hiring manager that you’re a strong manager by including quantifiable examples of your accomplishments.
Word Processing Diva’s professional resume writing services can help get your foot in the door by crafting a fully customized resume that is ATS friendly, and containing relevant keywords to give it stronger impact. Additionally, a benefit of our full Resume Makeovers include one-on-one consultations to reveal your unique qualities and focus in on your particular skill set.
