“Video #5 of 5 Tips on Choosing the Right Executive Resume Writing Service by Lisa Rangel of Chameleon Resumes.
Understand what services you are receiving from your executive resume writing coach or professional.
Review your executive resume writing firm’s help with your LinkedIn profile, resume keywords, and cover letter.
Executive professionals make sure your chosen Executive Resume Writing firm or professional has an executive job landing plan for you.
Lisa Rangel: This could arguably be the most important point, if you’re in an active job search… Does the writer or firm offer modern job search coaching services, as well? If a writer is just jamming keywords into your executive resume so that it ‘gets through the ATS’ – don’t waste your money! Only 20% of hires happen through ATS and job postings. Roughly 80% of hires happen through employee referrals, personal contacts, social media connections and third party-recruiters. Make sure the executive resume writer you choose writes executive resumes to be read by PEOPLE, too, and not solely the ATS.
REMEMBER: A great resume is not the magic elixir to landing a job. It’s one piece of the puzzle. Make sure to ask:
• What services are included with the resume investment and what additional services do they offer to ensure you can USE the resume properly to land a job?
• Will they also write you a keyword optimized LinkedIn profile and impactful cover letters?
• Will they review the job requirements and show you how to customize each submission, showing how you meet the needs of the job description?
• Do they offer to help you create an excellent executive job landing plan including developing a robust network, superb follow up skills and a positive mindset so you land your dream job within 2-4 months?
• Will they help with interview research, preparation & modeling? And salary benchmarking & negotiations to help you maximize the offer(s) you will receive?
