Blueprints for a Modern Resume
Did you know that recruiters and hiring managers take, on average, six seconds to look at your resume and decide if they want to learn more about you? Six. Seconds. What does that mean for you? Your resume must grab their attention and concisely and clearly convey enough about yourself that they want to read more. An outdated, wordy resume can land even the most qualified candidate in the discard pile. By working with our professional resume writers, you’re guaranteed to stand out!
What goes into a great resume? Great content. Carefully curated, well organized, and results-oriented content to be exact. Top it all off with a premium, modern format and you’ll stand out amongst the crowd.
More than results-oriented
Applicant Tracking Systems: Our Solution
Hiring managers and recruiters are using Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) more than ever to track candidates, strategically scanning your resume for valuable keywords to determine if your application should receive further consideration. Here at CareerLaunch, we are equipped with the tools to ensure you’re prepared to face ATS. Our internal reverse ATS and honed expertise ensures your resume will be effective for the modern job search.
Types of Resumes
The most common style which is best for mid-level professionals with a consistent work history and no significant gaps. A chronological resume works for all levels of experience across all industries.
A great option for those without a lot of career experience or job seekers diving back in after a significant gap in employment. In this style, your introduction and skill-set are highlighted.
A functional resume will reflect a carefully organized combination of both a skills-based and chronological resume. This style is best for job seekers with significant gaps in unemployment, those embarking on a new career path, or those who want to highlight specific skills.
A federal resume is typically much longer, more comprehensive, and provides additional information including salary, references, and even your hours worked in a week. While it might have a unique set of requirements, don’t worry — our professional resume writers are extremely knowledgeable in USAJobs guidelines and will work to craft a resume that checks all the boxes.
For those fresh out of school or just dipping their toes in the job market for the first time, our resume writers will focus on your education and transferable skills. With little professional work history, it’s important to communicate what you bring to the table and tie your life experiences together to present a clear picture of why you’re the best candidate for the job.
