the Attention You Want
with a Power Resume"
The founder of Career Crossroads has fifteen years experience as a recruiter. She knows first-hand what
resumes hiring managers are likely to reject and why and which ones get called for an interview. Your
resume is an important marketing tool and in today's economy you need to capture reviewers attention
in the first 10 seconds or it gets passed over.
There are three important aspects for every resume:
Style, Type and Content.
Many highly skilled people never receive a phone call
because their resume does not adequately portray their qualifications
for a particular position. Your resume needs to create interest
in your prospective employer and make them want to "buy"
There are many different styles of resumes.
I provide a custom-written, Professional Resume designed in the
appropriate style for your particular career, work history, and
position you are applying for. Your resume is formatted in a way
that will highlight your strengths and achievements, and make you
stand out to attract the right kind of attention from your targeted
There are two basic resumes types - chronological
or functional. A chronological resume is used when you are advancing
in your field. A functional resume is used when you are making a
career change. A third type of resume is a combination of both the
chronological and functional resume. By looking at both your background
and your future goals, the best resume type is selected to produce
optimal results in your job search.
The writing of your resume is a very "creative"
process. Through a series of well planned, thought out questions
pertinent to your occupation and industry, I extract your top strengths
and achievements and communicate that information to create a High
Impact Resume for your targeted audience.

Dynamic covers letters should accompany every
resume submission. We can write generic cover letters for various
purposes - direct mail sent to potential employers, recruiters, and
venture capitalists, for ad response and networking purposes,
and for broadcasting your resume.
We also write targeted cover letters for
a specific person, company or position. With information about the
specific position and company, we can create a cover letter designed
to entice the reader to call you for an interview.
Every interview with a prospective employer
should be followed up with a "thank you" letter. Here's
your chance to make a final effort to sell yourself. Your cover
letter is written according to how the interview went. If there
were things that failed to come up, here is where you have a chance
to talk about them. If there was an issue your interviewer was concerned
with, here's your chance to address that issue further. We write
follow up letters that increase your chances of getting the job
Sometimes it's a good idea to bring some
summary materials to the interview. Think of these as additional
marketing materials that you can leave with your interviewer to
help make a lasting impression.
If you plan to broadcast your resume to several
large companies, you need to have your resume in an ASCII format.
This makes your resume scanable for specific key words that employers
use to search resumes for suitable candidates for their open positions.
We do reference checking so you will know
before the interview exactly what your previous employers are saying
about you. This way, you will be able to address any negative reports
during the interview before your prospective employer even speak
to your previous employers.
