Treat Your Career Like a Business and Take Control of YOUR Future
Is your resume getting lost in the shuffle? Is your resume costing you interviews?
Recruiters and HR professionals spend just TEN SECONDS on each resume. Consolidated job search sites make it easier than ever to find and apply for open positions. However, that means positions are getting more applicants than ever before
Does your resume pass the first glance test? To get your dream job you have to get in the front door. Without an invitation to interview you don't stand a chance. Your Resume is the key to that invitation.
Some people believe that their experience and accomplishments speak for themselves and a "fancy resume" is just for people that have to hide their lack of skill behind flourishes and misdirection. Coca-Cola didn't spend $3.3 billion in one year on advertising because they have a shoddy product. They spent it because they know the value and importance of capturing and keeping people's attention. Your resume is how you advertise your skills and experience, and if you treat your career like a business and learn how to put your #1 advertising medium, YOUR RESUME to work for you
With the rise of Job Search sites is an increase in the DIY Resume services, fill-in the blanks, plug-n-play, and get a resume in seconds. DIY has built IKEA's brand worldwide, but do you want your career to be an IKEA Lack side table or a Williams and Sonoma living room piece that can be passed down to your grandchildren. "Good enough" isn't the path to take for a lasting career.
Your resume sets the foundation for your career.
If it is a well-crafted and well-worded advertising medium, it will put you in control of your job search.
Treat Your Career Like a Business
Our guiding priority is that your career is our business, which is why the best advice we can give you is to treat your career like a business. We want to help you become the CEO of ME, Inc.
Too often people are bystanders and observers of their own career. They let HR, supervisors, or others dictate their career path. They look to the heavens waiting for the next opportunity to drop from the sky walking along with the masses in a prefabricated cookie-cutter career path. Miserable in a mediocre job. They don't take action until the unimaginable happens and they are unemployed, downsized, let go, or fired.
6.9 Million Americans and 18 Million Europeans are currently looking for work. Open positions at all levels receive hundreds of applicants with only a small percentage even considered for an interview.
You have one chance at a first impression.
Successful businesses are proactive, not reactive. So your job search and career plan should be as well.
Your Resume is arguably the
most important document you
will ever own.
Your Resume is the foundation
but your LinkedIn profile better be good
Complete Personal Branding will
set you above the rest. It is time for enlightened self-interest
RESOURCES ACTION & WFR'S
IBM calls it RESOURCES ACTION. HPE/ CSC or now DXC calls it WFR's (Workforce Reductions). No matter what you call it, it means after 100% performance for maybe 30 years you are told that you are no longer required.
It is very personal. Let me share a very personal insight.
My husband Ed started his professional life at IBM. After 20 years being in a successful second career as an award winning photographer he is now applying the lessons he learned to the leadership and clients of RSO Resumes.
When he joined IBM he felt like a billion dollars, he was only 23 and what they taught him was just amazing. He worked with some great people and learned so much but ultimately he knew that his future was only going to be secure if he relied on his own enlightened self- interest
“I worked to get into the game," says Ed Gordon, CEO of RSO Resumes.
I realized that being in the game wasn’t enough. If I wanted to be truly successful I needed a plan. I decided that I wanted to retire by the time I was 50. Along the way, I found out I loved photography.
I asked myself, “what do I have to do on a daily basis to retire at 50 so that I can follow my passion for photography?” I decided that I would only take action if the decision would bring me closer to realizing my vision.”
The best professional decision I ever made was the moment I decided to treat my career like a business. That meant I had to act like the business owner.
I had to intentionally pilot this ship if I wanted to reach my destination. Looking back it paid off dividends because…
I retired at 45. I achieved freedom beyond my wildest dreams. I’ve traveled the world five times. I’m financially independent.
All because I decided early on to treat my career like a business.
In my decades of experience, this is the number one mistake I see with executives: They don't treat their career like a business. As part of that, they don't adequately invest in marketing themselves.
Recently on LinkedIn, we began offering our services on ProFinder. Ed is just amazed that most folks just don’t have a strategy. They look at the price and that’s it:
" It's unwise to pay too much but it's worse to pay too little, When you pay too much you lose a little money - that' all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the think you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do"
You need a strategy to set yourself apart from the crowd.
When you want to...
Your Resume is the document that gets you hired. A Complete Personal Branding solution is what gets you the dream salary.

ATTRACTED INTERESTING OPPORTUNITIES
I am a CEO based in Australia who is interested in changing my career. I met with a former colleague who recommended I get a very professional resume and compelling LinkedIn profile. I was still running the company so really had no time to develop either but Irma was recommended to me by my colleague. I contacted Irma and despite distance and time zone differences, she worked fontastically on both. It was a very interactive process and her advice and guidance was outstanding. I now have a very good resume that has attracted some interesting opportunities for me and a LinkedIn profile that communicates my experience and background well. The whole experience was very good as it allowed me to continue to do what I do best while having someone else prepare me for the future. It was also very good value for money. I would recommend Irma to anyone going through the process I am going through. *for privacy concerns stock photos were used, but you can see the actual reviews on LinkedIn
