The widely-popular professional resume writing service, OneBuckResume announces a large addition to their website platform, offering resume writing tutorials & resume samples freely to all visitors. The five minute, one dollar resume website has grown exponentially in 2012.
OneBuckResume firmly believes a resume is foundational to the entire portfolio. Without a well-forged foundation, a job seeker's entire communications strategy could crack and sink.
The reason behind so many job-search flops and missteps is lack of a messaging infrastructure. The following steps are always recommended when preparing a resume in today's job market:
Step 1: Research target companies and jobs. It's important to clarify the target industry sector(s) and company (ies) the job candidate may be seeking. Researching voraciously to focus on job descriptions can also be a powerful tactic.
Step 2: Clarity is essential. Before writing a resume, it's good to have attended fully to the first step. Without clarity, valuable job-search time can be wasted. It is advised to be practical and pragmatic in picking target jobs and ferreting out any value proposition areas
Step. 3: Getting intimate with value brought to a company. It is always essential to concisely articulate three to five unique areas of value that, when communicated to the reader (e.g., the hiring decision maker,) it will excite them because they now see the job candidate as the problem healer of their business pain.
Step. 4: Prioritize any portfolio items. Starting a professional resume as the first-priority item is always recommended. With the resume as a foundation, the rest of the portfolio will be firmly grounded. A successful resume can equip any remaining portfolio documents.
Step 5: Write a cover letter foundation. A cover letter can be tailored to each opportunity, although it may not be required. A foundational letter with excess language from that can be trimmed and tweaked can apply to yet another position.
