A sobering reality check dictates that information invariably proliferates at 'warp' speed in cyberspace once the 'send' key is depressed on a PC. The more extensive the utilization and distribution of your resume on the world-wide-web, the greater the risk that your 'intellectual property' or, 'one-of-a-kind' resume will potentially land in the hands of unscrupulous and cunning opportunists located anywhere on the globe.
What leaps to mind when someone mentions resume fraud? A high-profile executive that is fired in disgrace after lying about the college degrees they never obtained? While that still happens, the newer resume fraud occurs when a jobseeker steals content, often just copying and pasting information from someone else's resume. Blogs abound with stories of a shocked poster who comes across their resume online with someone else's name on it, virtually word for word. It is particularly rampant in the IT industry, where shady offshore recruiting firms copy US resumes for their clients to make them more marketable in America.
Looking for a new opportunity? At this stage of your career, you are competing against other experienced and accomplished attorneys who are submitting exceptional attorney resumes and cover letters to potential employers. The task of boiling down several years of legal experience into a clear and concise resume can be challenging. You need a legal resume that effectively showcases your qualifications, accomplishments, experience, special skills and education in a hard-hitting and compact presentation. A professional resume writer can work with you one-on-one to create a legal resume and cover letter package that will command attention and set you apart from the competition.
Properly used, video resumes can be an excellent format to showcase job experience as well as polished communications skills. There is still a novel aspect to video resumes so making still shows a willingness to embrace new technology and think outside the box. As long as applicants understand a company's resume submission policies, as well as ensure that their video is professional and in a venue a potential employer may frequent, it increases the chances this new form of resume can help and not hinder their chances of finding employment.
Finally, be careful about overusing keywords or engaging in "keyword stuffing." Your attorney resume should be readable. While a computer will not notice that you crammed you resume with keywords, an employer reading your resume will. You need to use keywords sparingly so that it still looks and reads like a resume. You also need to use keywords that accurately reflect your professional experience and skills. Padding your resume with terms that have nothing to do with your actual skills and experience could cost you the opportunity to interview.
Resume writers do just that - they write resumes, every day. It can be easy for most individuals to find a resume format they like and stick with that format for years. A resume writer sees all different kinds of formats and styles and can transform your resume in ways that highlight your key points. Think of yourself on the receiving end of resumes - wouldn't you be tired of seeing the same old bulleted list of job descriptions? A professional resume writer knows how to make your resume visually stand out.
