What is an introductory call?

We want to make sure nothing is left out or overlooked in this process.

 

Our team understands that some of our customers will have schedules that might make this meeting difficult therefore, this is an optional step but still highly recommended.

 

Your writer is also capable of providing a suitable document and well finished product without having to establish this personal connection. We want to make sure we make this process as individual but also as convenient as possible.

Will I receive two different resumes?

Yes! You will receive two versions of the same document:

 

  • Traditionally structured– Use this resume for online applications. These platforms pick up key words from your resume, application systems can easily read wordy documents but can sometimes miss information from documents containing images or artwork.
  • Modern designed – Application systems usually have the option for uploading additional documents this where you would add your unique resume. Once a connection is established make sure the recruiter or hiring manager has this in their possession. Also, be sure to bring it with you on interviews, your will have three professionally printed copies in your possession after the project is finished.

 

* Both of these documents are emailed to you digitally.

Will I Receive An Executive Portfolio?

Yes, you will! Every order comes with a high-quality executive portfolio that has: a pocket to keep all your important documents organized and secure, an area to hold a writing pad, plus a holder for your pen. Now you are ready for your interview.

Do I need a picture?

No! There are resume designs that don’t require a picture.

 

However, young professionals are now taking headshots to include in their resumes and LinkedIn profiles. Being able to put a face to the experience makes the hiring process feel more personal for most employers.

 

My Professional Guide is all about giving options. If you do have professional headshots we definitely recommend you share this it with us and it will be incorporated in your design.
