CV Saviour is an Australian-based career marketing service. While the majority of our clients are in Australia, we work with clients all over the world, in particular, those in the UK, the USA, Asia and the Gulf States, as well as job seekers looking to relocate to Australia. While we work across the full range of job types and sectors, I love a challenge and specialise in established careers, career changers, career returners and newcomers to the Australian job market. I work with a cracking team of brilliant writers who have various areas of specialisation that range from Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM), to Education, Banking and Finance, Teaching, Human Resources (yes, even recruiters need resumes!), Administration, Law, Medical and Allied Health Care, Professional Services, Academia, the list goes on. I have got a raft of qualifications (Marketing, Business, Nursing, and Resume Writing to name a few) to back up my 21 years resume writing experience and with years of experience marketing professional services in Australia, the US and the UK, today, I market people for their next career moves.
When Glover Lawrence was searching for his next job in the fall of 2013, he started by dreaming up the ideal position. I asked myself what attributes, roles, and responsibilities I wanted, he explains. He even crafted a job description for that made-up role using snippets of actual postings he would seen, then drafted a resume to fit it. As a senior executive, he doubted he would find work through help-wanted ads or job boards. It was going to happen through my network, he says. So he also created a one-page version of his resume to use in networking meetings and to send to contacts who had offered to help him. It included a one-line summary, five notable accomplishments, a list of the companies where he would worked for and the titles he held at each, one line about his education, and then a brief Career Focus section that described the types of jobs he was seeking. He also developed a longer, more traditional resume to use when he formally applied for a position. I tailored it to the company based on where I was in the process, what I knew about the people there, and the company culture, he says. Having the right resume for each specific opportunity, as tedious as it was, was important to me. For his LinkedIn profile, he created yet another version, presenting the same information but in a more conversational tone. Over his months-long search, Glover sent out over 50 resumes and met with over 100 people. In early 2014, he landed a job very similar to the one he’d dreamed about.
Do not think you can get away with having just one resume. You can have a foundational resume that compellingly articulates the most important information, says Heifetz, but you have to alter it for each opportunity. Of course, you may need to write the first version in a vacuum but for each subsequent one, you need context. Research the organization. Talk to someone — or ideally two or three people — who have worked there before, work there now, or otherwise know the organization. Then tweak it for the position, the industry, etc., says Lees. Heifetz says to ask yourself: What words or experiences do I need to highlight? What can I get rid of because it is not relevant? They do not have to be radically different but they need to do the job for each situation, she says. Your LinkedIn profile is just as important as your resume. Do not have one? Put one up immediately. Do not cut and paste from your resume, says Lees: It makes you look lazy. But do make sure you are presenting yourself in the same way. You do not have to use bullet points: you can be more narrative, and even more casual, says Heifetz. You also want to tweak the tone. There is a greater expectation that you will demonstrate personality, she adds. For example, the summary section should be written in the first person. It gives you the opportunity to present yourself as a living, breathing human being. Here is Jane Heifetz is LinkedIn profile as an example.
