You can send your resume to all the resume writers you want and they can make it look pretty, but if it doesn’t get interviews, it doesn’t matter.
Gunter, TX (PRWEB) February 07, 2013
Job seekers sending out resumes that never seem to get them an interview will find hope and the skill sets they need to finally write resumes that stand out, get attention, and turn their situation around. Peggy McKee, CEO of Career Confidential and one of America’s leading recruiters and career consultants, is conducting a live webinar on effective resume writing on February 12.

Peggy McKee, CEO of Career Confidential, quoted, “Most job seekers write their resume as a job history, but don’t know how to use it to market themselves as a product in the job search. They miss out on critical ideas to present their history in a way that gets attention and interest from employers.” McKee’s idea is that the resume is a tool to “sell” the applicant and his or her abilities to the employer, who is the “buyer.” The employer has a need, a problem, and the resume should tell the employer how this applicant, more than any other, can solve his problem.
Professional resume writers may make the resume look good, organizing it, cleaning up typos, but they do not necessarily get interviews. “You can send your resume to all the resume writers you want and they can make it look pretty, but if it doesn’t get interviews, it doesn’t matter,” says McKee. “The best person to write your resume is you. You’re the one who knows you best—your skills, your accomplishments—and you know your career field better than a resume writer. All that most job seekers need is some background in what turns a resume into a marketing document.” And making the resume into a marketing tool is what McKee does best.
At the webinar February 12, participants will have the option of submitting their own resumes for review during the presentation. McKee will use those resumes to illustrate how to improve the objective statement, employment history, structure, format, and more. The emphasis will be on how to make the resume a powerful selling document that gets hiring managers’ attention and makes the applicant stand out from the crowd of frankly boring resumes. http://careerconfidential.com/improve-resume-free-resume-writing-live-webinar/
Resumes are not merely past job histories, they sell the applicant to the employer by showing how this particular applicant is the answer to the employer’s needs. It takes specialized skills to design and personalize a resume so that it is a dynamite sales tool. Recruiter and career consultant Peggy McKee, CEO of Career Confidential is going to show participants exactly how to do this on the February 12 live webinar.
