The Human Being behind the Resume Jargon

At Select Resumes we review an awful lot of pre-existing resumes. The overarching thing that has struck our creative team of writers is the prevalence of jargon that peppers these documents. Phrases like “Motivated self starter” or “Results-oriented professional” come so often they become almost meaningless. And so it is that your prospective employer will probably gloss over these as well due to over-use.

Your employer knows that you are qualified and experienced or you wouldn’t have wasted your time and theirs by applying. They want to see the human being behind the experience, the personality behind the qualifications.

The team at Select Resumes understand this. Our writers come from a variety of backgrounds including HR and know what to look for, what will stand out. Time and time again we see that the showing the personality of the applicant is of equal weight to their abilities.

We’ll sit down with you for a in-depth consultation and build a picture of you from the ground up in order to best present a resume that truly reflect you as a human being who has a unique story and  is the ideal person for the job you have trained for and are experienced in.

The crucial thing with this approach is to still present a resume that is concise, uncluttered and the correct style and length congruent with your industry type. We have hundreds of in-house designed resume templates across a wide variety of business sectors and once yours has been selected we will create your resume, write the key selection criteria and compose your covering letter.

This finished package will reflect you as a person, not simply another candidate who fits a certain mold. Contact Select Resumes and let us unlock the human being behind the list qualifications and experience.
