What Is in a Name? Or, Why You Need a Great Resume Headline

I recently heard a story detailing how so many resumes are titled “RESUME.” Imagine how the process works for recruiters, who scan in hundreds of resumes a week for future searchability. They’ve set their software to read the first line of the page as the candidate’s name. I wonder how many people out there are now known as “Resume.”

Think about the job you have. Think about the job you want. Your professional resume writer will ask you where you are going in your career, and you should have solid ideas about both. Your resume writer takes these data points, synthesizes them, and develops a heading to your resume that addresses where you’ve been and where you’re going in a way that catches hiring managers’ and recruiters’ attention. Certified resume writers understand the language that recruiters speak. We can craft a headline for your resume that speaks volumes about your experience, accomplishments, and expertise.
