Case Study: Our Skills in Formatting Resume Helped an Engineer Reach his Ambitious Designation
Charu Shankar, an engineer by profession, had been seeking a lead position in an offshore venture of repute. However, his resume was not able to get him shortlisted for ambitious industry openings he had been eyeing.
Charu wanted to get a call letter for interview. He was confident that his technical skills and formidable industry experience would help him convince the potential recruiter about his capabilities and utility to the hiring company. He wanted his resume to be professionally modified so as to enable him to leverage his potential optimally for landing a lead position with top company.
Charu’s technical aspects have to be portrayed in bold through the resume’s body. His expertise and experience blend needed to be aligned with hiring company’s expectations from a senior manager.
The first thing that caught the attention of our resume writer India was that the resume was cluttered with needless details. Each aspect of Charu’s previous professional stints with various companies was highlighted through the resume. The resume itself ran into several pages. It was a clear indication that lack of empty space had caused the eyes of the scrutinizing manager to be overwhelmed. Consequently, rejection rates were high as managers’ were not able to establish any linkage between company’s needs and Charu’s proficiency. We got this distraction eliminated by implementing needful design edits. Now, the resume appeared professional and trimmed.
Next, all meaningless achievements in his career were struck off the resume. Accomplishments that focused on Charu’s technical prowess, analytical skills, problem solving and critical decision taking capabilities, leadership qualities, innovative bent of mind, out of box thinking and other prime attributes were retained. Highlighting cues were placed to make the recruiter commit attention to most vital aspects.
Another fact that was recurrently dampening the spirit of Charu was the absence of an accompanying cover letter with the resume. It has been observed, researches’ suggest, that 40% of the recruiters are most likely to go through a resume which has attached cover letter with clearly written statement of purpose. The cover letter was prepared strategically by us. Further, the resume was keyword optimized for applicant tracking systems.
As soon as the tweaked resume along with cover letter landed with Charu, he set out to hunt for lead position related openings. Within days, he got several calls from renowned MNCs for interview. Finally, he could land his ambitious industry profile with our formatted resume.
