   You are here: Home » You Have 20 Seconds To Make An Impression  
That's right. Market research shows that employers make a decision on a resume in 20 seconds or less. And only one interview is usually granted for every 200 resumes. Are you confident your resume will survive the cut?

A resume is a written ad. Its purpose is to sell you, the candidate, as the perfect prospect for a particular job. A well-written resume will secure you an interview. Once your foot is in the door, you can convince the employer you deserve the job. The decision to grant an interview is usually based on an overall first impression the resume creates. In the first few lines, your resume must convince an employer you are worthy of an interview or your resume has failed. It's that simple

Talented attorneys are often the last people to ask for help in writing resumes. "I did well in school. I've had good jobs. Why do I need to bother with a professionally written resume?"

The answer is -- because you can't afford not to. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, hundreds of candidates often apply for a single job. The better the job, the more applications there are. The rise of internet search engines and other online postings has made job listings more accessible to candidates - and more candidates means greater competition. Overburdened hiring personnel quickly scan resumes, looking for the handful of candidates that distinguish themselves enough to be invited to an interview. Your resume should be one of them.

That's why it is advantageous to hire a professional. You go to an experienced auto mechanic to fix your car. A doctor to cure your cold. An attorney to solve your legal problems. Resume writing is no different. You need an experienced professional to write persuasive advertising copy that will sell you and your skills.

Of course, anyone can put words down on a page that provide a factual account of a candidate's job history and educational background. Your resume may even look good and be error-free. But the truth is, your resume is probably more humdrum than you realize. Creating a resume that sings-a product that stands out from the pack and is guaranteed to get results--requires experience, skill and a passion for writing and presenting candidates in the best light. A resume should not merely tell employers what a candidate has done. It must persuade them that you are the best possible employee for the future.

That's why you need Attorney Resume. Our resume services will help you not only land the job you want, but maximize your earning potential as well. By allowing employers to see the many faceted skills you bring to the table, we can help you get prospective employers enthusiastic about your candidacy - and be willing to pay you what you're worth

Our resume writers speak with you individually about your background and career goals, and then work closely with you to design a resume that presents you in the best light and furthers your career objectives. We even know how to honestly massage blemishes in your record, to accent your best qualities. We create the very best impression of you possible.

Our resume writers have honed the craft of presenting and selling candidates through years of careful research and practice. We've even written a book, literally, on resume writing. You spent a lot of time studying the law and becoming an attorney. Our writers have expended as much energy becoming experts in the art of writing masterful resumes. Let us do what we do best so that you can be hired to do what you do best.

You have 20 seconds to sell yourself. Don't waste them.
