RALEIGH, NC, September 16, 2015—Local career professional’s resume writing included in a newly revised book by national publisher, John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Eight million Americans are unemployed, and countless more are unhappy or barely hanging on to the job they have. Each one is thinking about how to improve their resume, their job search, and where to find jobs so they can make application. How much time and money have you lost trying to get a job with your resume or curriculum vitae?
September is Update Your Resume Month and perfectly timed is the newest release of Wiley’s Resumes for Dummies book. This seventh edition has been thoroughly updated to provide job seekers with the most current resume and social media profile writing information by author and career superhero, Laura DeCarlo.
Credentialed resume and CV writers from around the world submitted more than 300 samples for inclusion in the book. Author, Laura DeCarlo, was tasked with the job of narrowing that number down to 50 of the best-in-class resume samples for this new edition. Those resumes provide job seekers with the most current examples of what today’s hiring industry expects to receive from job applicants.
Radiant Resume Career Services is proud to announce that owner, Posey Salem, is honored with six resume samples included in the new 7th edition of the book, Resumes for Dummies. More of her resume writing examples are included in this edition than any other resume writer. Posey is an internationally Certified Advanced Resume Writer (CARW) located in Richlands, NC. She works with professionals and executives locally, statewide, and across the country. As a resume and curriculum vitae writer and career strategist, her passion is to represent those professionals in powerful and accurate ways and bring that message across in less than seven seconds. Posey accomplishes this through the writing and design process of her client’s resumes and related job marketing documents.
She knows that hiring professionals are overworked and receive hundreds of applications and resumes for each open position. They aren’t afforded the time to read each one comprehensively. Only a quick glance of 6–10 seconds is given to the resumes received. In that short amount of time, the resume must make a significant impact and generate further interest. It must clearly demonstrate the job applicant’s achievements and the added value they offer to prospective employers as they relate to the job opening. One of her clients explains it this way,
“I learned about myself through this process…it increased my confidence…Posey’s process is an excellent “mirror” on yourself, which makes you dig deep and think about your work history and what you bring to the table. Posey is the real deal. She doesn’t take two days to whip out a formulaic resume. She has a process…and you end up with a vibrant, readable, exciting resume instead of a boring list of tasks and responsibilities. This is the way to stand out from the crowd!”
