Other Career Services at Dynamic Résumé Solutions
Some additional services that many job seekers want to add-on to the purchase of their résumé is LinkedIn Profile Development, Cover Letters, and a Career Highlights Biography. Below is a description of these offerings:
LinkedIn Profile Development
The “social search” is dominating and approximately 80% of employers use LinkedIn to screen job candidates. Compete effectively in this market by having a complete and accurate profile which outlines your career background and brands in the same manner as your new résumé so you can be found in searches related to your field and profession of interest. LinkedIn has the potential to strengthen and extend your existing network of contacts with the key benefit of being able to easily find out contact information for employees in companies you are interested in pursuing employment with.
Targeted Cover Letter
Expand on the details of your career and why employers should hire you for the position you are applying for. The targeted cover letter markets the job seeker to competitively position the person against other candidates. It is designed to highlight the top attributes the candidate has to offer and is appropriate in the following situation: when responding to a specific posting with the need to include all the relevant information; when a specific person has requested to see your résumé; in formal committee-based hiring; or move the reader to action with an email, phone call, or scheduled interview. The letters are written for separate positions and can be used to reiterate what you bring to the table and why you are a match for the targeted position.
E-Note Cover Letter
Impress hiring managers with your modern approach to the job search by including an e-note cover letter with your résumé being sent electronically, in the body of an email message. E-notes are short, concise, easy-to-read letters that showcase a job seeker’s top assets or quick career story. An e-note should be used when uploading a résumé for online applications; when sending a résumé via email; when contacting people who “never” read cover letters; and when contacting people who love cover letters!
