My wife and I were recently receiving assistance at our neighborhood wireless retailer when six to eight clients arrived within five minutes of one another. There were only two sales employees working, and you could see the disgust on some customers’ expressions as they realized they would have to wait a long time to be assisted. Two clients left after removing their names from the waiting list.
We made the decision to stop at a drive-through fast-food restaurant after leaving the wireless shop to get something to eat before going home. There were over 10 cars lined up when we got to the restaurant. We debated our alternatives and ultimately chose to leave the line and go home. Due to the failure to respond to customers in a timely manner, local businesses in both cases lost clients and, more crucially, revenue. Lost sales are not taken into account anywhere in the company’s “Profit and Loss” statement. Even if the money isn’t in the bank, there is no opportunity cost listed under “Expenses” at all.
What kind of salary would you be able to earn if you had the perfect resume? The days when hiring managers merely considered recommendations or required you to complete a job application are long gone. Your resume is your one opportunity to stand out from the other hundreds or even thousands of applicants vying for the employment you want. You have to rely on a résumé to tell your story accurately, positively, and in a way that makes an impression because you can’t explain the reasons in person for your career change, why you stayed at home with your children, why you only stayed at a job for a year, or countless other things that come up in the course of life. What if the message that impression leaves is incorrect? What happens if no employers are calling you because of your resume? How many opportunities have you lost as a result of your resume?
The typical job search takes 19.3 weeks as of May 2021! The cost of not working if you want a salary of $70,000 is $1346.15 a week, or almost $26,000! You will have received a return on your investment if working with a resume writer enables you to return to work even one week earlier.
Why take a chance on losing almost $26,000 when you can get rid of this problem by working with a specialist resume writer? A professional resume writer can add carefully chosen, correct key phrases to your resume that accurately and succinctly explain the tasks you have completed and the accomplishments you have made. If you’re like the typical American job seeker, it will take you months to get from sending out resumes to scheduling interviews, second interviews, offer letters, and start dates.
Without a top-notch resume that results in interviews and job offers, it’s potentially the same as making a $26,000 investment knowing that the money won’t be returned. The best method to get interviews is to write a strong, accurate resume that really communicates to the audience. It only gets easier from there. Your chances of getting a job offer increase with the number of interviews you have. Once you are in front of the hiring manager, you may establish a connection, speak with them face-to-face, and address any potential concerns related to your job history. The most difficult thing is getting the first interview. How much time and money have you lost searching for a job?
