Recently, I received a call coming from a friend that is a financial planner. He likes to be described as a real mover and shaker in the local world of business, so I can be expecting a lunch invitation a few times every twelve months. (I'm low on the totem pole for the local business scene.) More often than not, the lunch will feature a couple people from related market sectors that my friend is hoping to cross network. I always go. In my business, I don't commonly do a lot locally, nevertheless it's free food.

This time around, I arrive at a pleasant, sunlit sea food restaurant along the beach to find my friend sitting with some guy in a suit who he then introduces as a resume writer. The guy in the suit quickly attempts to rebrand himself as a career coach, although after a number of questions, it turns out that a lot of his business is just selling people on the concept that they require a professionally constructed resume.

Clearly, the thought is that there may well be some working synergy between a recruiter and a resume writer. I can't find fault with my buddy for the logic, it appears to be reasonable. Naturally, both work with people during position change. However, reality is that it couldn't be further from the truth.

The resume writer endorses the misconception that a resume gets an interview. Further more, they offer the thought that an extravagant (higher priced) resume does a much better job. As a headhunter, we detest that style of reasoning.

If we start working with a candidate, we work with a tactic of focus. The most marketable achievements of their work history as it pertains to the job being sought and isolated. These are typically specific cases with numbers. Whatever else is then minimized, and these success stories are moved to the front and advertised.

Amongst other factors, this means that at our direction, the resumes are normally rewritten. Flowery language and jargon is cut. Padding and embellishment is eliminated. The resume is changed into a uncomplicated chronological road map which leads from one success to another. It is a snap to follow hoping that it's going to lead an interviewer into dealing with the best things the job candidate possesses.

The moral of the story would be that recruiters don't trust convoluted resumes. The resume should be easy and straightforward highlighting achievements that happen to be very specific. Resumes are tools to be utilized during an interview, not to get an interview. Don't subscribe to the myth of a $500 resume. It provides no real value.
