"Why do I need a résumé?"
In today’s competitive job market, you need an edge over your competition.

candidates are often overlooked because their résumés are

With rising costs and problems obtaining good customer service, many
people are "doing it themselves." With things like minor household
repairs or auto tune-ups, it sometimes makes sense to do it yourself
to get the job done as cheaply as possible. But as with major home
and car repairs, there comes a time when a professional is needed.

or grammatical errors and lack the look and feel of a quality, typeset

and style necessary to capture an employer’s attention. This type of

Most human resources managers and recruiters receive thousands of
résumés. They might spend a minute or less scanning
each one, putting only a few selected résumés aside
for more consideration. A professionally prepared résumé
gives you an immediate competitive edge.
