Palatine, IL (PRWEB) December 1, 2010

With millions of people in transition already and fewer jobs than ever to apply for, it is critical to organize all your advantages to win a coveted seat in the international job search game of “musical chairs.” Some have been out of work for months and even years! Such hard realities make it even harder to keep up morale, focus and stamina for emotional wear & tear of the typical job transition.

“Nobody can guarantee you a job,” Steve Burdan, President of S A Communications and http://www.RealClearResumes.com explains, “Not you, not a recruiter, not the resume writer, not even the interviewer! There are too many moving pieces in the job search outside of your control.” So it is important to manage your expectations and understand the dynamics of the actual job search. This makes it crucial to work with someone who will guide you and be straight-forward and honest in their advice and feedback. “Too often resume services will tell you what they think you want to hear in order to get your business.”

Most people try to write their own resumes or CV, and it shows because they either over-write or under-write their career narrative. It takes a professional to look in from the outside and see what should be kept in or left out in order to make the optimal impression on the reader. Another key goal is to maintain high accuracy in the resume’s content without sacrificing honesty, integrity and “sell-ability.”

“Ultimately the burden of the finding a job rests on the person themselves, and not the resume or the resume writer,” Burdan asserts. “But what the writer can do is improve the odds in your favor, stack more chips on your side, by having a more true and clear representation of who you are professionally.” This means that the potential employer does not have to work hard to figure out what you have done and how you can contribute to the business. “You should focus on making clear how you are going to make or save money for your new employer by highlighting how you’ve done so for previous employers,” is how Burdan put it. “Remember, employers are not mind-readers, so you have to connect the dots for them,” he adds.
