Your resumé should be your ticket to a career you love. It's a living, vibrant document, as unique as you are, and it's so much more than a list of jobs.
It helps to imagine that your first meeting with a prospective employer is not when you first step through their office door in person, but rather the moment they first look at your resumé. Your resumé is a hiring manager’s first impression of who you are. It shows them so much about you: how you choose to present yourself, what your career history is, how the direction of your work history ties in to your career goals… the list goes on.
Every aspect of your resumé is a one-time chance to create a first impression that reflects your true professional self: from the way it's formatted to the content you choose to include (or omit). Whatever your resume looks like - whether you’ve thought about it or not – the fact remains that it is conveying information about you, with or without your consent!
Best Words Editing's resumé services empower you to take control of what your resumé is saying about you – and to leverage this messaging to work to your advantage. Our professional editor will review, rewrite and organize your existing material, using what you already have as a springboard to create a revitalized custom resumé, tailored to your specifications while always staying true to your own individual 'voice'.
