I found a job! I wanted to send a big THANK YOU for all of your efforts in revamping my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. It was a pleasure working with you, and I will refer your services to my friends and colleagues."

In my job search since sending out the resume you created for me, I have had 3 job interviews and yesterday I received a solid job offer that I will be accepting. I wanted to let you know that I am beyond pleased with the resume you prepared, and I feel it showcases my career history and skills well. This is a tough job market going on right now and what I paid for your service was well worth the value I received."

I really, really appreciate your service—you did an awesome job with my new resume and LinkedIn profile and with helping me set up my profile. I showed my new resume and profile to my wife and she said, 'This guy really knows what he is doing. We could not have done this.' Thank you again for all of your help and for a job very well done!"

To get an interview in today's extremely competitive job market, your resume has to be virtually flawless. Why? Because hiring managers and recruiters continue to be bombarded by resumes, and they can afford to be extremely selective when deciding which candidates to contact for interviews.

As a result, you need a resume that stands out and commands their attention by creating a compelling picture of value. To help your resume make it into the elite group that gets followed up for interviews, it must at a minimum do the following well:

Be focused - Demonstrate a clear, singular career direction.
Be convincing - Present your qualifications with maximum impact, including outcomes or accomplishments where possible, to create a strong impression of value.
Be inviting - Offer an aesthetically pleasing design.
