How to hit the ball out of the park with your resume!

Home Run

It’s almost baseball season. Every baseball player dreams of hitting the ball out of the park. It’s a phrase that even people who don’t watch baseball understand. Hit the ball out of the park. Get that home run. Win the game.

Are you settling for the resume that never hits the ball out of the park?

Unfortunately in job search, many people settle for resumes that never will hit the ball out of the park. They might win a job but not your dream job. Many people will take their old resume that they wrote in college or high school and just shove in the new jobs.

I have people ask me to fix up their resume all the time. Just put the new information in and make it fit. But that’s not how I work, that’s not what you get when you hire me to write your resume. I work with you to write a resume that hits the ball out of the park. It captures who you are, what you bring to the table, and shares your success stories in a way that gets you the home run — your dream job.

People who invest their time, and yes, their dollars, to work with me to uncover their value, discover those stunning contributions that they tend to forget in the business of just doing their job every day. My clients are winners and we let the world know by creating resumes that get interviews and get offers.

Winning resume strategies win jobs

When you seriously contemplate the value you created for your employers, your resume resonates with quantifiable results illustrating how hiring you will improve the bottom line or success rate for the company you target. You can’t just rewrite your job description and hope they will hire you. Tell them what you did to hit the ball out of the park. See below for examples:

  • Authored and designed detailed step-by-step loan processor training manual illustrating process improvement strategies used to reduce loan opening time by 36% and earned the ABC Bank Employee Service Excellence Award.
  • Created and ran an innovative day school treatment program as a demonstration model, which successfully graduated over 65 students previously expelled from school.
  • Boosted sales by $1.2 million  and achieved branch profitability for the first time in 9-year history after restructuring staffing and realigning accounts.
  • As Project Initiator and Manager for $1.4 million migration project, currently migrating regulatory and digital controls from obsolete control system to new state-of-the-art Honeywell Experion control system.

If you are not experiencing success in your job search or aren’t getting the attention from hiring managers, maybe it is time to change your strategy.

I help job seekers transform their resumes and job search strategies in interactive, solution-driven strategic planning sessions. To see how I can help you, call me (Julie Walraven) at 715-564-5263.
