An Extra $10,000 can come from a new job, a promotion, or a raise....SO ARE YOU SABOTAGING YOUR JOB SEARCH WITH YOUR RESUME?
Resume Templates Don't Work: When you use a template for your resume more than likely someone else is using that same template. An employer is looking for creativity and may toss resumes aside that are too similar. Lack of Creativity Hurts Your Resume: Creativity on a resume translates as a person who can work independently and can add value to a company. When an employer views a resume that reads like a job description it screams lack of competitiveness. Huffington Post wrote an article on January 4, 2012, called What Advice Do You Have For Job Searchers wherein they interviewed employers that spoke about the quality of a person's resume, in part saying "You have to be pretty impressive to compel us to read a three-page resume, and if your formatting skills are so bad that your resume shows it, there's no way you have the skills required to work for our company. "
Focus Your Resume: A crowded resume squeezed into one page limits your work/employment persona from jumping off the page or standing out. If your entire work history is crammed into one page nothing stands out. You should focus your listed skills to the tasks that benefit the position you're seeking.
$10,000+ Can Be Yours: When you present a well crafted, branded resume to a prospective employer, you stand out and thereby get an interview invite. Once you ace the interview, you more than likely will get the job. If you're seeking a salary re-evaluation a well branded resume boosts your chances of a higher salary increase

"Doing resumes were always a hassle for me, but with the new "branding yourself" resume lingo being thrown around, I would rather have had all my wisdom teeth pulled at the same time rather than do my own resume. Sending out my resume was always a chore; I was never proud of it. I don't know how you did it, but I am so glad I entrusted you with my resume. Now I am excited and proud to share my resume with anyone. It says, "hire me." From a person who watches all her pennies, you were worth every dollar I spent. Without hesitation, I would recommend you to everyone who needs a resume." ~ Attorney
