How To Use Your New Resume from our Career Market

Updated: Apr 16

Resumes crafted from our Career Market are all optimised to meet the relevant information for your specific industry, job level and career growth. No two resumes are crafted to showcase the same information and goes against everything we believe.

However, here are some exciting things you might like to know on just how much we put into delivering a truly authentic resume.


  1. You really do have our FULL attention with requests answered in 24 hrs or less.

  2. A career development specialist with the insight of an executive recruiter will actually 'SPEAK' with you and take the time to understand you and your career needs.

  3. The job's never done until you are 100% satisfied and that's spot on. Also, if for any reason you desire an upgrade, we'll do it at no extra charge with a whole 30 days 'change period'. It's that simple. It's our commitment to service.

  4. We'll research the locations you've worked, companies you worked with and use psychometric analysis to offer only the most relevant data with educated suggestions for your career growth.

  5. We will craft your resume to be irresistible to the human eye but readable for the ultra no-nonsense it is what it is, not getting by me with your fluff -ATS.

Now you know a bit on how much we care, here are some tips before taking your new resume for a spin.


Read the Job Description in detail, please...


All too often many Job Seekers get winded by an interesting title and opt for immediately applying with their LinkedIn profile or resume on upload. This is quite okay if what the Employer is asking, is exactly what can be demonstrated from your resume. The odds are, the job may fit you perfectly, or somewhat that, but here's the thing; 90% of jobs today are filtered using some sort of automated tracking system to allow hiring managers a more efficient recruitment sorting process. It's not perfect since many really talented people with years of experience get washed away quickly and not recognising the dos and don'ts when applying to your dream job, so will you. But before, consider the tips below :


  • Read the job description fully.

  • Make a note of repeated words in the text that show importance to the employer.

  • Review your resume SKILLS area and update if necessary with the required skills most desired. Beware, if you're not good at something - Try LinkedIn learning (LYNDA) update your knowledge or take a course of preference. Never flood your resume with keywords in an attempt to 'trick' the system. This will be bad for you if you are unable to perform or fully grasp what the job requires most. Be honest.



Research the company or branch even the location a bit to get a base understanding of the brand language and tone they're hoping to get.


For instance, a trendy design hotel company with fresh concepts and urban decals may be looking for someone who can not only fill the job but understand their approach and language. This doesn't mean you need to change the person you are but it will give you a glimpse of this : -

  • If your style of management, attitude and tolerance is suitable for the company or location. Take a moment, and be honest with yourself before applying. —Does this company really meet my vision for where I see myself? This is a critical and justified question many people fail to ask themselves before pressing SUBMIT on a job board and in the process confuse their long term vision with hit and misses.


Don't ditch your Cover Bio until you understand how you can use it as your secret weapon. A Cover Bio may be outdated in many ways, but it is an excellent place to land the winning vision of what the company wants. Use it to sell yourself on what the company needs and capture their attention with your originality.


Remember, job boards from Linkedin to Indeed, Monster and Google will give you the option to upload a Cover letter or bio. Use it! A real person will not be reading it, and it's for this very reason recruiters and employers have left the bulky 'information processing' for the algorithms. So believe me, you won't be boring anyone. However, an automated tracking system with 'desired' keyword sorting will dissect the information into measurable indicators and if you say it well enough - you're in.


So as I leave you with a bit of humour and key insights, remember this - A well-crafted resume and bio should : - identify your industry, career goals, demonstrated capabilities and proven worth. It SHOULD NOT be the description of another Job Description. Are you guilty of that? :)


A bit of common sense will tell you that every job and employer is going to come at you with specific needs and objectives that they find unique and important. Your responsibility is to help that prospective employer understand why you fit the bill. Taking the time to make small adjustments to identify with keywords and brand language is a must if you are serious about getting your next job.
