What is the FREE resume review offer?

Since the job market is competitive for anyone looking for employment, a free resume review is a service that we offer to someone mid-career or about to launch their career to determine how their resume stack up with other candidates and potential job opportunities. It's a way for us to offer grammar and applicant tracking system checks (ATS) to all candidates, active or passive, during a job search and educate them on the latest hiring trends, resume formats, ageism, and how to market themselves correctly.

After offering over 150,000 resume reviews in the past 7+ years, we know that many candidates make their resumes a biography or a list of responsibilities instead of creating a marketing document, preventing them from being called for an interview. Hence, they keep applying for positions after making cosmetic changes to their resume without addressing critical issues that get them rejected. Therefore, during the free resume review, our experts accurately identify inconsistencies in candidates' resumes and help them position keywords, phrases, topics, terminology, vocabulary, competencies, years of experience, and accomplishments.  

This exercise highlights three areas where inconsistencies could prevail in a resume. Those are:

 

  1. Absence of numerical data
  2. Word count and ATS keywords
  3. Grammar errors and lack of expertise

About The Job Helpers

What is The Job Helpers' brand purpose?

Several years ago, when our CEO Chui was still an employee, he started to notice how his colleagues struggled to secure a job despite being qualified.

There were frequently no callbacks for the interviews they needed to secure their dream jobs.

He realized there is a gap between what businesses expect from potential employees and their ability to represent themselves to achieve those expectations.

The Job Helpers was founded as a result of this discovery. To demonstrate their abilities, experiences, and knowledge and to stay current with the times, Chui began offering professional services to job seekers. Today, Chui and The Job Helpers help top CEOs, Directors, and junior executives alike to secure their dream job.

What is The Job Helpers brand objective?

About Our Services

How do The Job Helpers services benefit during an active or passive job search?

85% of hiring happens on LinkedIn, and it's fundamental to have your LinkedIn content optimized to be a top search result and grab the attention of the recruiter.

During a passive job search, a recruiter contacts candidates via LinkedIn primarily and asks them to provide an updated resume. During an active job search, it's critical to understand employer expectations, build content to reflect requirements, qualifications, and criteria, and match them with examples, samples, and tangible and intangible results.

Our job here at The Job Helpers is to meet these demanding requirements on behalf of our clients by providing them with optimized content, customized documentation, and applicable career advice to impress an employer, key decision maker, recruiter, or influencer for a successful (active or passive) job search.

About Our Resume Writing Process

What's the timeline for The Job Helpers resume service?

The timeline for the resume service is 5-7 business days. Here are the steps:

Step 1: Discovery interview with a career management coach for 30-45 minutes on a recorded phone call/zoom session.

Step 2: The resume writer will find up to 100 jobs (review job descriptions) out on job boards like

Indeed, LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Zip Recruiter, and company websites fit the client's expectations based on location, job titles, and salary and build the resume.

Step 3: The editor will use an online thesaurus, MS Word spell-checker, and Grammarly when proofreading the resume.

Step 4: The quality assurance team will cross-check all details and information sent by the client with the new resume built by reading through the client's previous resume and any additional content sent as an email or as an attachment.

Step 5: ATS (Application Tracking System) checks to match the keywords in the client's resume to get a match rate of over 80%.

The client will receive the first draft of the resume within 5-7 business days to review and revert with changes. Once the draft is finalized, the client will receive the LinkedIn content and the cover letter after 24 hours. Based on the bundled service client purchased, job searching, LinkedIn networking, and interview preparation sessions will occur. The career management coach will also conduct a session to review changes and improvements and work with the writing team to provide updated documents.

How does the resume writing process work?

Step 1: The writer will find up to 100 jobs (review job descriptions) on job boards like Indeed, LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Zip Recruiter, and company websites that fit the client's expectations based on location, job titles, and salary.

Step 2: We will use the ATS (Applicant Tracking System) to match each job with the current resume or the documentation provided to identify and group keywords, phrases, topics, and vocabulary requirements for these jobs.

Step 3: Build the resume using the keywords that are repeated and in that order.

Example: - If the keyword 'Finance' is repeated 50 times out of 100 job descriptions, and if that is the one keyword that has gotten repeated that many times, then that word will be at the top in the summary section based on priority. So, hiring managers and recruiters can see requirements with examples and tangible evidence in the resume.

Step 4: The writer follows the STAR interview (Situation, Task, Action, and Result) format to meet employer requirements such as specific deliverables, measurable outcomes, results, goals, and timelines when building each section of the resume.

Do I get to speak with someone about my career before building written content?

Yes. Every client subscribing to resume writing services will get to speak with a coach as the first step of the process. Here are the steps for the Discovery Interview:

  1. Identifying personal goals, developing leadership skills, and planning career move based on salary expectations.
  2. Conduct research to develop a questionnaire based on gaps in skills, expertise, and keywords compared to 100 open positions.
  3. Provide Q/A and professional development guidance while identifying career goals through discovery.
  4. Review the current resume and client's experience in detail and discuss career potential, salary expectations, passions, locations, and exciting jobs.
  5. Develop a refined list of career options by examining client skills, interests, and values through self-assessment.
  6. Advise the client on how to fill out the intake form on any additional information they would like to share with the writing team and discuss the next steps of the process.
