When you apply for an open position, you may think you are uniquely qualified for the job. You may even be the most suitable candidate for the job. But being suitable and making sure the recruiter knows it are two very different things.This is where ResumeBaker comes into the picture with a service that transforms your simple text resume into a unique and customized work of art using design templates. Just so we’re clear, Resume Baker is not a resume writing service. What they do is give you beautifully designed and customized resumes.
All you need to do is select which template you want to use and then upload your existing resume in formats such as rich text (.rtf) or MS-Word. These are available are divided into categories such as modern, conservative, with picture, and without picture. Take your pick, upload your resume and wait for 2-3 days to allow for ResumeBaker to fiddle with the typeset and arrange your resume into the chosen design. The end result is a professional looking resume sent to you as a PDF (.pdf) file that is guaranteed to knock the socks off any recruiter or employer who takes one look at it.
Why is this so important? Well, recruiters and employers facing stacks of resumes and CVs just glance through the lot, giving around six seconds to each one on average before flipping over to the next one. In these few seconds, your resume has to stand out and bring the recruiter to a screeching halt. A simple resume in plain black text is not going to do that, no matter what it says and how qualified you are. So for sure you will need creative resumes to get eyeballs rolling.
Adding a touch of color, style and personalization to an otherwise bland laundry list of what you’ve done makes whoever’s reading it sit up and take notice. They’ll remember you after that even in a crowd of hundreds of similar candidates.
So what’s the deal here? So what’s the deal here? At Resume Baker you can get your resume revamped for as low as $65 for a conservative one-page design including two free text revisions (if required) within two weeks of getting your first PDF resume from them.
