7-Tips to To Make Your Resume Stand Out and Get Noticed

You need to get noticed by recruiters, hiring managers and applicant tracking systems to get the interviews.

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

In today’s market, a “well-written” resume isn’t enough. Resumes designed to get interviews require a modern day approach and need to do more than just describe experience.

Resume writing has significantly changed in recent years. With LinkedIn, social media and the introduction of ATS (Applicant Tracking System(s)), today’s job seekers must have resumes that capture the attention of recruiters and hiring managers in less than 30 seconds as well as “speak” to an ATS in a way that gets their resume to the top of the list. Unless this process is nailed, applicants won’t get interviews.

StyleCareers.com, the largest, fashion-only job listing site on the Internet, has recognized this dilemma and partnered with resume expert, Victoria Rotante, CEO of Resumes – The Virtual Handshake (RTVH) as a way for members of the fashion community to have access to exceptional resume services to help them stand out in their job search. RTVH offers a contemporary resume solution for job seekers that combines extensive fashion-industry knowledge with an SEO and ATS optimized resume structure that creates more “visibility” to hiring managers and ultimately secures more job interviews.

“I am excited to partner with Resumes-The Virtual Handshake to give my customers’ access to innovative resume services,” said Chris Kidd, owner of StyleCareers.com. “We’ve wanted to partner with a resume writing service for a long time. The hard part was finding a company that met our standards. With Resumes - The Virtual Handshake, we have that.”

“A resume is often a candidate’s first line of introduction to a potential employer. It therefore serves as their virtual handshake and it is imperative that it make a positive and strong impression,” said Rotante.

Rotante reinforces how a resume is one of the most important professional marketing tools for professionals, and provides the following suggestions for selecting a resume service:

A quality resume writer should

  •     Provide an individual and highly specialized resume that will enhance a professional’s unique value proposition. A template-based cookie cutter document should not be used.
  •     Perform due diligence on the job seeker’s industry to ensure his/her resume showcases relevant experience and highlights appropriate terminology specific to the target market.
  •     Ensure each resume is key-word and SEO optimized for maximum "visibility" in ATS or Google searches.

“My team and I work individually with each of our clients to create a targeted resume that showcases a candidate skills as well as the value they can offer to an organization.”
