Here is how a professionally designed CV can help you:
1. Professional writing and editing.
If you were to go back through your old resume or covering letters, chances are there are a few errors in there that you didn’t see at the time. This is where DIY resumes can fall short – because you’ve written and proof-read it yourself, chances are that what you’ve written down isn’t exactly up to speed with what you were thinking at the time.
A professional team of writers and proof-readers have an advantage here. They are able to cross-reference and thoroughly examine your resume with a professional knowledge and resource-base of grammar. Not only that, but a professional writer has the advantage of a more distinct writing style – one that best represent you, your skills, and your experience to recruiters.
2. Organised and Structured.
Ever looked at a blank document, knowing you needed to write your resume down, and didn’t have a clue where to start? Utilising the skill of a professional resume writer can ensure that your resume covers all the bases from a professional summary, a career history, experience details, your education, and even your personal interests.
A Professional team is able to do so in a structure that is succinct and flows well, ensuring that recruiters won’t get tired of reading your CV, even when your experience is nearly the same as somebody else’s. The difference lies in a professional structure and arrangement.
3. Creative Design and Colour Theory.
Believe it or not, but the colour and style of your resume has a big impact on how recruiters will react to it. A resume with clashing typefaces, font sizes, and saturated colours will get you nowhere. Even worse, using the same resume template that 50 other applicants have used.
A professional design team will have a grasp of colour theory and what looks best in terms of colour hues and contrast. They will be able to make your CV stand out against every other CV with a plain white background and black text.
