Why should I hire a professional writer to write my resume?

By selecting a professional writer, you are investing in your own future by employing a specialist who can craft a resume that will get you noticed quickly.  A professionally written resume:

  • Speeds up the search process by getting you noticed faster.

  • Increases your possibility of getting an interview by getting past ATS and RDB software scans.

  • Raises the quality of your application as your resume and cover letter are targeted to the employer, not sent out to multiple hiring firms in the hope one will respond to you.

What happens after I place my order?

You will be contacted and meet for a one-on-one session with your resume writer.  Given the current pandemic, this meeting will be conducted via Zoom.  We will establish what jobs you are applying for, your experience and educational achievements, and your career goals and aspirations.  If you have specific jobs that you want to apply for, these will be noted so that your resume is tailored especially for those opportunities.  The resume writer will then construct your resume and any other documents you have ordered, such as cover letters and thank you letters.

Can I communicate with my resume writer?

Of course!  You can contact your writer any time at sales@msquaredcareers.com at any time to ask questions, receive updates, or supply further information for your documents.

Are a CV and a resume the same?

Many people think they are, but they are slightly different.  Generally, resumes are shorter and paint a snapshot of your specific skills for the job for which you are applying.  A curriculum vitae, or CV, is a longer document that highlights skills, research that you have conducted, publications that you have authored, and course work take.  Resume are used in the job search area, while a CV is generally created for positions in academia, research opportunities, or applying for grants and fellowships.

Why should I use M-Squared Career Services?

We are not just a job application “document factory” like so many of our competitors.  We use a consultative process to craft credentials that are specifically targeted for jobs that you are applying.  If available, we will review job advertisements that you supply to create resumes and letters to exemplify your skills for these positions.  We are not in the business of merely supplying a generically written resume or letter.  We intend to maximize your opportunity for success in the job application process.

How long does the writing process take?

Once the consultation has taken place, M-Squared Career Services will take no longer than seven days to email your documents to you.

Do you offer a money back guarantee?

There is nothing we would like more than to claim more than a 100% guarantee that you will be hired if you use our services.  However, the final decision on whether you are interviewed and then offered a position rests with the hiring company.  Thus, it is impossible for us to provide you with such a guarantee.

Is my privacy protected?

We are fully committed to protecting your personal information and your right to privacy.  Please go to www.msquaredcareers.com/privacy if you wish to read our full privacy policy.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact info@msquaredcareers.com.

I keep hearing that ATS and RDB can affect me getting an interview.  What are they?

ATS stands for Applicant Tracking System.  It is a piece of software that analyses every resume sent to a hiring company to filter out those that are not suitable for the positions being advertised.  To achieve this, it uses specific areas such as keywords that are in the job advertisement, your skills, years of experience and former employers.  It then matches them against each resume.  The more of these targets it finds, the better chance you have that your resume will be read by a human being, be it the HR department or the hiring manager.

 

RDB stands for Recruitment Database and is a piece of software predominantly used by recruiter or head-hunting businesses.  When you upload your resume to sites like Monster, Indeed, and LinkedIn, it is read by the RDB and marked with keywords like those used by ATS.  However, the difference is that when a recruiter starts looking for someone to fill a vacancy, the keywords and skills they search for will be matched against your resume’s keywords to create a match based upon a percentage.
