So, you're looking for work, applying for jobs only to have immense competition from other job seekers vying for the same position. You're frustrated and anxious. It all seems overwhelming. Made all the more difficult when employer's don't provide any feedback as to why you were unsuccessful.
Using the services of a professional resume writer is a great idea. We're are not always the best at selling ourselves on paper. So it's best to leave that to the professionals. Here at Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions, the need, concerns and interests of all our clients are at the forefront of everything that we do as resume writers, cover letter wordsmiths, selection criteria writers and interview coaches.
1. What kind of feedback and testimonials do you have?
Make sure you know what their track record is. What do past clients have to say about their work? Client Centric have a testimonials page with past client feedback to help assure our clients.
2. How long will it take to have my resume and cover letter completed?
Make sure you know when you'll receive both documents ready for your review. Nobody wants to have their resume and cover letter tailored for a role after the position has expired.
3. What information do you need from me?
You cannot revamp someone's resume and cover letter unless you know what they are looking for and their background.
4. What will my resume look like once finished?
