Is your resume letting you down?
A really good resume is VITAL to your job search! The importance of making a good first impression with your resume cannot be overstated. A good resume increases your chances of getting to the next stage of the selection process - the interview. On the other hand, a poor resume almost guarantees your application will fail.
A "good resume" is in the eye of the beholder, which means it's the person who receives your resume whom you have to impress, so it can be worth getting some professional help.
