How Much is Your Job Search Costing You?

tax-deductionThe average job search is 33 weeks.  There are an average of 250 working days in a calendar year.  A $40,000 a year salary converts to a loss of $160 a day during a job search.  2 weeks with no work can equate to a loss of $1600.   That’s a hefty number that many cannot afford to lose.

The cost of paying for a professionally written resume quickly pays off when you are unemployed or underemployed.

You can accelerate your job search by employing a top-tier resume writer.  Why? We possess innovative strategies to properly market you. We are trained to see things in a resume that the average person will not see. We know how to leverage keywords to generate more interviews and job offers. We also know how to downplay gaps in a resume by elaborating on achievements and accomplishments. Most importantly, we are writing specialists.

Resume writing isn’t just an art. It’s also an ever-changing process. Resume writing is vastly different today than it was 10 years ago. With the advent of applicant tracking systems (ATS) that are used in more than 72% of companies, top-notch resume writers stay up-to-date on the latest trends regarding keyword rich content. Objectives are no longer used on resumes. Instead, the latest trends show that because employers glance at a resume for an average of 5-7 seconds, the top third of the resume is the most important. Therefore, a professional summary better serves to capture the reader’s attention, and quickly.

As you move into your job search, we must remind you of one very exciting additional bonus: job hunting expenses are tax deductible.
