Ridiculously Awesome Resume Kit
Ridiculously Awesome Resume Kit
Is your resume ridiculously awesome? If no, here’s a little secret: If you want to grab the attention of recruiters, hiring managers and other important decision makers (of course you do), it needs to be. No one is going to sit around and deduce how or why you make sense for this job or that – You’ve got to make it “smack-in-the-forehead” obvious how and why you’re a great fit for the types of roles you’re pursuing. It’s not easy, but it’s certainly doable.
We’re here to make it doable. (And maybe even * gasp * a little bit enjoyable along the way.)
The Ridiculously Awesome Resume Kit is for you if:
You suspect (or know full well) that your resume isn’t pulling its weight in showcasing the stuff you’re best known for, most proud of, or could give you a decided advantage over the competition.
You know that your resume needs to speak more directly to your target audience, but you’re struggling to figure out how to do that.
You’re embarrassed to hand out your current resume, so you’re missing out on cool opportunities.
You’re not landing interviews, and can’t figure out what’s wrong.
You’d love for someone to take your hand and walk you step-by-step through a proven (over and over again) process of creating a resume that will wow the right people, and get results.
You want to see sample resumes and cover letters – resumes of actual people, who are now working in amazing new jobs.
- You want a professional quality resume, at a fraction of the cost of hiring a professional resume writer.
