Is your resume holding you back?
By David Perry
This guide was written by David Perry, who for the past 15 years has been Managing Director of Perry-Martel International, one of North America’s top firms for executive search, recruiting and placement.
He has helped hire more than 900 executives and negotiated more than $164 million in salaries. David certainly has the credentials for dosing out advice on creating an effective resume.
In his information on his website he explains how the lifetime value of one’s career can be well over a million dollars. He also divulges that as a job seeker, your resume has about three seconds to make and impression on any prospective employer. That was a shock to me. Three seconds isn’t much time, and this startling fact drew me in to what else he has to say. For this reason I thought I should check out what he had to say.
But his teachings go way beyond showing how to make a powerful initial impression. It’s also about what to say and how to say it. The things he discusses are not necessarily the typical content you would expect to find in a resume. He shows you how to compel the employer to call you for the interview.
His site is full of success stories of people starting the career of their dreams. One man even stated that he was sort of disappointed that his job search had ended because he was starting to enjoy the power of commanding any interview he wanted. That is the frame of mind many of his students begin to take on. It’s great for one’s confidence when you have that kind of control over your career. You’ll decide on the ideal position for you and then go for it.
I strongly suggest you check out David’s site for the full story on what he can do to help you.
