Well, hello there! It's Executive Coach Monique Betty, affectionately known as Coach Mo. Welcome to today's podcast of Tuesdays with Coach Mo.

This month of May is all about helping you get to your next career opportunity. In the last episode, I was joined by Mark Anthony Dyson who was dropping expert knowledge for the current or soon-to-be job seekers in the audience. 

According to Korn Ferry CEO Gary Burnison, in his book Lose the Resume Land the Job he says the resume is only 10% of why a company hires you.

In general, when someone is updating their resume, it usually signals that you either have to or want to find a new job - - and that's just straight-up hard work writing about yourself. What I have witnessed in supporting clients who are making career transitions is that way too many people spend way too much time agonizing over the resume. Yet we all know it is a critical element for the hiring process. 

This is why I believe that a quality resume writer is a service worth investing in. Your time is better spent making meaningful connections through your network and having meaningful conversations!

For our today's episode, I am joined by resume writer extraordinaire, Jessica Hernandez, President & CEO of Great Resumes Fast LLC, and is named a LinkedIn Top Voice. She and her team have been helping mid-to-senior level job seeker land their next position. 

Have you considered working with a Professional Resume Writer? 

I've listed down some of the benefits below:

  • They know how to write resumes and Linkedin profiles that are written toward the job you want.
  • Expertise in crafting content in a way that engages people on the hiring side.
  • Attention to details and strategically placing keywords identified by applicant tracking system commonly known as ATS.

In this episode, you will know how to be prepared to speak on how you used your time during the global pandemic, be mindful of the language used in your resume and include active verbs, and eliminate passive phrases and establish a process and the practice for updating your resume every 6 to 12 months.

Jessica also shares rich information on LinkedIn for the do-it-yourselfers. Some of her recent posts including:

  • expert post the cover letter
  • what job Seekers can expect in the coming months as the pandemic restrictions are being lifted
  • what are the action words to use on your resume to get you noticed and which words to stop using
  • she offers a career summary checklist for improving that vital section of your resume.
