Resume by Design’s key strategies in developing compelling and highly marketable resumes include:

  • Tailoring content to showcase key skill areas, both breadth and depth (substantiating each skill).
  • Developing pages 1 and 2 of your resume in terms of content and design so the pages ‘pop’ – this is where the essential information needs to be showcased; a reader’s decision is made at this point in selecting you for the interview stage!
  • Profiling your achievements on the first page so you do away with listing day-to-day responsibilities which reads just like a job ad and role description, and does not hold the reader’s attention. The key is in showcasing how you have gone over and above performing standard tasks by highlighting outcomes and and results. This is how you truly capture the reader’s attention!
  • Designing your resume to ensure consistency/uniformity throughout; flowing from start to finish, page to page, section to section, and within each section. Solidly-structured and well-organised, your true monetary worth should be refeclted: a $40k-looking resume will not suffice for an $80k+ position.
I was referred to Annie Cerone by an executive recruitment agency who highly recommended her work. I presented Annie with my existing resume (a long seven-page document) filled with numerous high-end responsibilities across senior level finance roles I had held over the years. I valued Annie’s directness and honesty when she spent a good half hour explaining strategy on how she could market me more effectively on paper and get the important stuff to come across on the first couple of pages. She made me realise the importance of demonstrating quantifiable outcomes/results in a concise manner and how filling your resume with day-to-day responsibility-based tasks does not win anyone over. I was sold in that first half hour and when she emailed me the first draft I was a huge fan. My revamped resume has led to several interviews and I can only thank Annie for this result.
