Revision Resume's Resume Critique

A resume critique may be just what you need to get your resume on the 'follow-up' pile of a recruiter's desk and earn an interview. When you review and edit your resume, you may be missing revisions that would result in a significant and noticeable improvement.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Resume Critique?

Do You Have a Current Resume?

If you have an up-to-date resume that includes your current job, a resume critique may be what you need to ensure you are submitting an error-free document.

Are You Not Getting Called for Interviews?

Job-seekers that have been submitting resumes but not getting called for interviews are also good candidates for a resume critique.  Many people find it difficult to notice and correct errors on their own resumes.  Errors show lack of attention to detail and give the impression that not enough time was put into creating and proofreading your resume.  In some cases a resume ends up in the "discard" pile if an edit has been overlooked.

Are You Unsure of What to Include and What to Leave Off Your Resume?

Finding the right balance of information to include on your resume is challenging.  Does it make sense to include your volunteer roles?  Should you list your entire 30-year career or just the recent work experiences?  Is an objective statement still relevant?  What about references?  If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, a resume critique will be helpful.  Revision Resume is aware of the latest industry standards and can help you figure out how to refine your resume appropriately.

Do You Want to Submit Your Resume with Confidence?

Hiring Revision Resume for a resume critique will ensure your resume is properly edited and formatted. You can rest easy knowing your resume is professional and error-free. Why risk overlooking a mistake that could cost you the job? Instead, let the professional resume writers handle it...and improve your likelihood of earning an interview.
