Do Your Interview Skills Feel a Bit Rusty? Here’s a Quick Review! 

At Platinum Resumes, our clients come to us from all walks of life, approaching the job search game from a variety of different angles. We see a little bit of everything along the spectrum of life, working with individuals who just graduated from college and with men and women who just recently became grandparents. There are those who have spent the better part of their career in high level executive roles, as well as those who have barely gotten their feet wet in a career.    If you are fresh out of school, then you might be feeling inexperienced yet well prepared for your first big interview. Although you don't have many interviews under your belt, your recent education has provided you with the basic how-to's of going about it all, and you feel like you are at a comfortable starting point.

When A Custom Cover Letter Makes All the Difference 

There are times when it is okay to blend in and times when it is imperative that you stand out. When you are in the midst of vying for highly sought after roles in a competitive market, there is no room for doing anything half-heartedly. Every piece of your personal brand needs to be on point and intentionally unique, and copycat versions of templates found online will get you nowhere other than the bottom of the stack of interest.    If you want your resume and cover letter to stand out and draw interviews rather than waste baskets, then you need to seek someone who can help you develop a customized document that will highlight your strengths and turn heads in the process. Our talented team of job experts at Platinum Resumes have the experience it takes to know exactly what a hiring manager is looking for when he or she goes to review a new applicant. There has to be something that [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.   [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
