Sharpening Your Skill Set to Fight for Your Dreams

Your career game is only as strong as its weakest link. If you polish up a few pieces to perfection yet leave holes in your overall presentation, you are lessening your chances of being noticed. If you feel solid in your ability to interview well yet put a half-hearted effort into creating your resume, then you are selling yourself short of your dreams.


In order to be a worthy opponent in today’s competitive job market, you have to work hard to remain well-rounded. To recognize your weaknesses is one thing. Anyone can do that when faced with the right question. To conquer your weaknesses, however, is a feat that few choose to pursue. It is among those few that you need to find yourself.


Visualizing your weaker attributes and taking action to strengthen them will take you far in your current job search journey. Many people do well to highlight their skill set and to build off of those attributes when creating their resume. They can back up their claims with a solid list of key career accomplishments and ways in which their work has brought success to their respective companies. But, when you are fighting for the job of your dreams and surrounded by other talented candidates, every little bit helps when it comes to keeping an upper hand.


You need to sharpen your skill set and take the time to sit back and consider which areas could use some dusting off. Maybe you need more professional training in one area or more practice in another. Maybe you can reword your resume and LinkedIn profile to reflect truth but yield a more powerful punch than what you’ve had before.


Words mean a lot when it comes to representing yourself well as a potential job candidate, so strengthen your skill set accordingly and empower yourself to become the best you can be!

Dominate the Job Market with a Strong Personal Brand

How are you representing yourself when it comes to your job search? Does your resume paint an accurate picture of the same person that will arrive for an interview? Is your LinkedIn profile current enough to professionally portray the real you? Bumps and bruises included?


Who you are isn’t always who you appear to be. We’re all guilty of hiding behind the safety mask from time to time, squeezing ourselves into the stereotype of someone that we’re not. After all, that’s the only way to successfully go after the job of your dreams, right?


At Platinum Resumes, we believe there’s another way. We believe in intentional authenticity and in digging deeper to find this alternate route. A way in which to remain true to yourself while also dominating your application and interview processes.


There is an art, which we have mastered, where the right pieces are drawn together to best represent the unique version of yourself. As a job candidate, you bring a package to the table that is unlike any other. Your blend of skills and experience has the power to capture the attention of your potential employer and set you up as a strong candidate for the job at hand. But, how do you develop such a powerhouse effect?


The key to a strong personal brand is honesty with professional refinement. You need to be real but not go overboard with tales from a jaded past. You need to be authentic but aware of how to use the right words to strengthen your weaker attributes. Our staff at Platinum Resumes has developed the knack for finding these words and making some magic happen for our clients and their respective job searches.


We know that your personal brand is only as strong as the weakest link, and our aim is to pinpoint that weakness and spin it for your good.
