When looking for a job, you are doing more than trying to get away from an unhappy work environment or trying to break away from grumpy co-workers and kiss-ups…you are marketing yourself!
The longer you spend in a dead in job, beating glass ceilings, the harder it will be to tear yourself away from the warm sheets that hold you captive every morning. Flooding the market with applications and a shoddy resume presents a first impression likely to get your chance at an interview floating straight down to File 13.
Can you afford the emotional, psychological and physical trauma associated with remaining in an unproductive work situation? Only if you don’t mind being sick, hating to go to work and experiencing sadness associated with going to work.
Frankly, the harsh reality is…employers have the upper hand in this market. This means employers can easily afford to be discriminating and exceptionally picky. Competition is more fierce than ever! How do you answer the call to differentiate yourself from others applying for the same position?

Consider a resume your “ticket to the marketplace.” We understand today, that if you want to travel – anywhere – you need a ticket of some kind. Plane ticket, train ticket, or cruise ticket. Now before you say, “I prefer to drive,” let’s get one thing straight. Sure, you can drive from Daytona Beach to Laguna Beach, but why go through the hassle of driving 35 hours and spending nights in hotels when you could just hop on a plane that can get you there in a fraction of the time.
Having a well written, resume with keywords specific to your industry and detailed descriptions without being overly wordy is your ticket to getting a foot in the door to any employer. It makes you 31% more likely to land interviews and 40% more likely to receive a job offer!
Invest in yourself! There are thousands of jobs out there. Guess what the good news is? You only need one!
