Why would I need résumé services?
Some fast facts
- Recruiters typically fill an open position in an average of 52 days.
- Only 4% of recruiters avoid social media during the hiring process, and LinkedIn is the top social media network for hiring activities.
- Recruiters get what they need from a résumé in about 20 seconds, often less, and one in five HR clerks will discard a résumé before finishing a scan.
At Spring Forward Résumés, we build a presence for you on social media and through conventional hiring pathways so your name stands out among the others. With something as crucial as a promotion or a first interview, you want to step with your best foot forward. Offering an outdated format or template without the information hiring managers want to see, sending a document that’s not proofread, or providing an un-optimized LinkedIn profile won’t deliver results. An awkward phrase or typo usually means a toss in the “no” pile, and so will tired, dull job search documents. Don’t let a grammatical error or odd sentence hold you back. Spring Forward Résumés delivers for our clients with more than 15 years of expert career services experience.
Can’t I just do it myself?
To find and secure employment in an increasingly competitive market, job seekers must make the right impression with a complete strategy. Good résumé and cover letter writing, using social media like LinkedIn, having sharp interviewing skills, and demonstrating the ability to negotiate are all necessary for a modern job search. That’s why it’s a wise investment to hire a pro like Spring Forward Résumés to expertly position you for the best opportunities and guide you through any obstacles. Not only are you leaving an average $962 on the table every week you are unemployed or underemployed, you also make more over the course of your career by hiring a professional versus going it alone.
