    Gain the Necessary Edge in Your Career by Hiring a Resume Writer

Gain the Necessary Edge in Your Career by Hiring a Resume Writer

In a society where individuals are becoming more and more self-sufficient, we find ourselves removing the middle man from many of our methods of doing business. No need to chit chat with the bank teller anymore, just deposit your check using your phone. No reason to speak to the gas station attendant when you can pay at the pump and jump back on the road. And why hassle with finding a company to assist with your current job search when you can google your way through the necessary steps.


Although it’s often convenient to do it all on your own, it is not always the best choice for your future. When you are in hot pursuit of your dream job, you need to advance yourself in every way possible so that you gain a competitive edge. If you are just muddling through the motions of applying for jobs without a deeper knowledge of the process, then you are cutting yourself short of your potential.

Our team of writers at Platinum Resumes knows what it takes to create a document that is powerful and unique. The right choice of words paired with a creative and concise format will quickly draw the attention of a hiring manager and greatly enhance your chance of being considered for an interview.

    Switching Careers? Time to Utilize Your Contacts Within Your New Industry

Switching Careers? Time to Utilize Your Contacts Within Your New Industry

Do you remember Pin the Tail on the Donkey? You may look back on the childhood party game with fondness or annoyance. To be blindfolded, spun around and confused, and then asked to propel yourself in a partially unknown direction can be an exhilarating experience. For some, however, it can invoke fear and doubt to be headed toward a goal without a clear sight of exactly where you’re going.


Exhilaration mixed with fear and doubt are also some of the same emotions that we encounter when we are in the middle of switching careers. How nice it is to think of a fresh start and a new look to your day! Letting go of the mundane tasks that have controlled your work week for way too long and opening up a new door to shed light on a whole new set of tasks and projects. Sounds like an exciting adventure, right?


If you’re a glass half-empy kinda guy, however, a switch up in your daily grind can be scary and uncertain. The old job was grating on your last nerve, but at least you knew what to expect, both from yourself and your team. What if you’re not cut out for this new line of work in the way that you’d hoped you were? What if you get a new job only to find yourself unhappy again?


When moving to a new job, there’s a healthy balance in there somewhere between eager excitement and legitimate caution. Just like the game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, going in blind is a factor to be considered. You know that the target is out there, but you kind of have to feel your way toward it at first. And it helps to have people in your corner that are there to guide you if you feel overwhelmed.


By utilizing your contacts within your new industry, you are gaining an inside scoop into the new world in which you are about to fully immerse yourself. You’ve already put in countless hours researching this new career field and preparing yourself accordingly, but there are still mysterious pieces of the industry that you don’t fully connect with. By calling upon someone who has worked in this job arena for years, you are making yourself more marketable by developing a deeper understanding of what is expected of you in an interview and as a new employee.


If you are switching from the world of business to the classroom, then it will greatly benefit you to talk to other teachers, young and old, who can help point you toward refining the skills that are the most necessary to be a solid educator. If your industry is changing from sales to the arts, then speaking to your friends and colleagues who are successful actors or artists can help pave the way for the many transitions that you can expect to encounter along the way. By reaching out to others, you are not showing weakness but wisdom, and wisdom will take you far!

Bypass the Cookie Cutter Format and Secure a Custom Resume

Do you ever find yourself wanting something more? Wanting to step outside of the comfortable box where so many others reside? Desiring to stand out in a unique way?


If you find yourself flailing in your efforts to reach for more when it comes to your current job search, then perhaps you haven’t reached out toward the right resources. At Platinum Resumes, we know what it’s like to feel like you’re at a dead end. You feel tapped out because you’ve been pouring yourself into applying for job after job yet seeing no promise of an interview. You are throwing your best cards out there, but you are not gaining the attention that you hoped to get by now.


We are the solution that you have been missing all this time. The customized resumes that we create for our clients far outshine the standard cookie cutter formatting that so many job candidates use. They think that changing the words here and there make a big difference when under review, but they fail to remember that a hiring manager spends only about 7 seconds glancing at each resume on his or her desk. Those 7 seconds have to count, and you need to create a document that stands out among the others.


Our team of talented resume writers have great talent and a wealth of experience at making that magic happen. We put together custom and fresh formatting for our clients, a short yet thorough synopsis of how valuable of an employee you will be to the company at hand. We know what sparks the interest of a hiring manager versus that which provokes drowsiness and boredom, and we are proud to stay in touch with a long list of satisfied clients who have seen our custom resume work bring the interviews they lacked before working with us.
