    Will a Professional Resume Company Really Make a Difference in My Job Search? 

Will a Professional Resume Company Really Make a Difference in My Job Search? 

We all have those things in life that we have trouble believing until we can see it with our own eyes. Maybe it was your first visit to the Grand Canyon, where you couldn’t really understand the magnitude of it until you were standing at its edge. Or, for others, it was the first time that you ever held your newborn child. People told you what it would be like and all that it would do for you and to you, but you had to see it and experience it for yourself to truly believe and understand. 

 

Webster defines faith as a strong or unshakeable belief in something, especially without evidence or proof. At Platinum Resumes, we strongly believe in the power that our company has to advance your career and produce premier interviews and opportunities! However, we understand that you need evidence or proof of such a guarantee in order to believe in our product. That is why we are so thankful to have the testimonies of our satisfied clients who have tasted and seen how truly helpful and profitable our work has been in their career journey. 

 

Maybe you’ve been on the job hunt for months already and have realized that you, in fact, do need some help in order to land a job that is worthy of your aptitude and experience. You are not alone in this journey of frustration and disappointment. One of our previous clients wrote, “My resume quality wasn’t something I’ d thought much of, but after a few disappointing months in the job search a friend referenced Platinum Resumes for me. I gave it a shot, and it was an incredibly eye opening experience.”  

 

Until you have been on the other side, you do not fully comprehend just how helpful it can be to have a professional advocating for you and your job potential. Our team of experts have a wealth of experience in determining just what hiring managers want to see in a resume and hear in an interview. We take our knowledge and pair it with your specific experience and skill set to create a resume and cover letter that speaks volumes.  

 

Our creative layout and methodology will push you past the other candidates and change your previous course of experience. Instead of receiving yet another phone call or email sharing disappointing news, we guarantee each of our clients that you will increase your odds of landing an interview by more than 40%! Who wouldn’t want that kind of professional assistance in their corner?! 

 

Another client writes, “They are AMAZING to work with speedy, professional, and very affordable. Thoroughly impressed with their attention to detail and high caliber of work.” Let the next response from one of our satisfied customers be from you! Call us today at 816.986.0909 to get started.

    Maintaining a Harmonious Atmosphere Despite Bickering Coworkers 

Maintaining a Harmonious Atmosphere Despite Bickering Coworkers 

Ever experienced that brutal commute to work? The one where you dread going into the office because you know what kind of drama awaits you upon arrival. The storm that has been brewing amongst your coworkers has become fierce, and there are tense moments and spiteful conversations around every corner. Not really the environment you long to return to again tomorrow, right? 

 

Bickering among coworkers can create a draining and miserable experience for the whole office. Productivity is forced to a halt when we spend half of our time at work settling disputes, choosing sides and beating down the door to HR with various accusations. For many, your workplace bears a striking resemblance to that of Dunder Mifflin. Those circumstances that we might laugh about on our favorite episodes of The Office are all too realistic. 

 

So, how can we maintain a harmonious atmosphere at work despite the constant drama and arguing? The first step is to take yourself out of the circle of influence. We’ve all heard the common definition of insanity, which is doing the same thing over and over again yet expecting a different result. Those who continue to take part in the same confrontation about the same subject matter every week need to step back and reassess the situation. Every individual has their own opinion, and those opinions are not likely to be easily swayed, at least not overnight. 

 

If positive and lasting change is going to creep back into your workplace, then action must be taken to stop the negative cycle of bitter interaction. If you wish to avoid that long drive into the office each morning and, instead, be filled with an eager expectation for a successful day ahead, then it is up to you to set the stage for harmony and focus. If you cling tightly to your desire to get your work done in an efficient manner and avoid any conversations that will lead to distraction, then you are leading by example and painting an accurate picture of what your company was meant to look like. 

 

No one sets off into a career with the desire to be miserable. No one starts a new job with the hope of having zero friends at work. Rather, we all wish to work in an environment that brings out the best in ourselves and the best in others. Choose, today, to be the one who is less interested in the daily drama and more interested in enjoying your job.

How to Remain Steady When Weathering Job Change

Is your career seeing a change in seasons? Have you grown tired of the same mundane job and decided to switch gears? As change draws near, we typically withdraw ourselves into a cocoon of fear and timidity, forgetting about the confidence that lies within us. We deny ourselves the opportunity to embrace a new season with excitement and drive because we begin to worry about the many details of it all.

 

When you feel as though you are grasping at straws and jobless for much longer than you’d intended, it can be tempting to throw in the towel and assume that you need to settle for less than you are capable of achieving. When facing a new opportunity, it’s important to stay focused and determined to succeed. You have to approach your job search journey one day at a time, keeping a keen eye on your gains just as much as your losses.

 

We have found that many of our clients are surprised at just how much they can get accomplished in one day’s time if they get organized in their approach. Having your ducks in a proper row is a great way to start the application process. You need to have ready a strong cover letter, a unique and flawless resume, and a solid references dossier. By ensuring that these documents are ready to send out at a moment’s notice, you can then open up the remainder of your free time for networking and troubleshooting purposes.

 

Being poised and ready is a crucial element to weathering the job change that is currently threatening to rock your world. Remain professional as you speak with recruiters and build relationships with potential hiring managers, and refrain from letting the “newness” of your new career path psych you out. And, as always, remember that Platinum Resumes and our team of job experts are only a phone call away!
