In Need Of Some Help With A Résumé?

Since a career-changing conversation could happen at any moment, let’s talk about your résumé again. To get yours in hire-me-now shape, turn it over to professional résumé writer Julie Ghatan of Resumental.

Ghatan can revamp your C.V. in about a week. First she’ll assess what you already have and send you a questionnaire to get the ball rolling. (Quick: what are three things you want people to remember about you?) She’ll dig even deeper during a face-to-face or phone conversation, then do some copy and design noodling and send you a new version for approval. (Fees range from $200 to $500.)

Ghatan can help you play up the importance of your accomplishments, which she says most clients are too humble to do on their own. And forget the one-page-résumé myth–that’s just for newbies (two or three pages are fine for seasoned professionals). Another tip? Lose the objective, since it’s always the same: to get a job.

Experts say hiring managers look at your résumé for 30 seconds before deciding whether to read on. Make sure you hook ’em.
