Career documents and online profiles targeting
your next move
Extreme “sorting” happens when your resume is one of the hundreds submitted for one posted job position.
Thus the importance of professional presence – even beyond your resume.
Creating a polished professional brand and promoting your talent requires creativity and strategy. Your resume, cover letters, bios, and your social media presence need to be consistent, relevant, and top-notch to stand out.
Historically and statistically, through our years of hiring experience, only about 10% of resumes qualify for a possible interview.
At Career Thinker, partnering with our certified professional resume writers can increase your odds of getting noticed among the competition. We use proven industry techniques that can get a resume or cover letter stand out to a recruiter or hiring manager.
Our variety of resume writers also allow us to align with your specific needs in a wide range of industries whether you are a recent college grad, a mid-career professional, or have a need to your Executive/C-Suite expertise highlighted.
Your online presence is no longer optional. LinkedIn is now considered a format that acts as your digital resume so you can get found by online talent searches. We cannot overstate how paying extra attention to designing and showcasing your professional presence in this social media format can distinguish you from the crowd, attract key decision-makers, and encourage professionals to network with you.
More eyes will see your professional presence on LinkedIn than will ever see your resume.
We stay current with Applicant Tracking Software (ATS) which is designed to sort resumes. Resumes that are not in a correct format or have keywords that are not ATS-friendly have considerably lower odds of obtaining an interview. This is often the case with “do it yourself” resume templates.
All of our resume packages include a DISCstyles™ Assessment which gives insight into your leadership and communication strengths and behaviors that will allow your brand message to be authentic and consistent in how you present yourself on paper, your LinkedIn profile, and in the interview process.
As you partner with your writer, it will benefit you to pay special attention to your assessment results as they will also tie into your interview coaching.
