What others are saying
I have read thousands of free resume samples and writing tips over the years and spent in excess of 100 hours on my own resume.
I finally found your website 2 days ago and applied your principles in resume writing and WOW I was contacted within 15 minutes for an interview today from a company that I had applied twice to previously with no result…I am so happy I am writing to thank you!!! Anna P.
2 thumbs up for this great initiative, spending half an hour with your content have made me realize my mistakes and opened up new aspects in my mind to focus on “repairing” my resume . Saad S.
“Good news!! I submitted my new resume to two VP level marketing jobs that I felt I was well-qualified for and I already have my first interview scheduled! I can’t tell you how happy I am with the results – I wasn’t getting any nibbles at the VP level from my old resume. Thanks again!” Karlene C.
“After following your tips … within an hour I had an interview from the company I was most interested in. You gave my new career the perfect start!” Kerry D.
The guide begins with an overview of the Blue Sky approach to resume writing. It’s an approach we’ve refined and perfected over more than 10 years, and it’s important to understand the principles that underpin the success of our resumes.
We then move on to resume preparation. Here you’ll learn how to review your career in detail in order to identify the things that make you especially valuable to your target employers. We call this ‘developing your value proposition’ and it’s crucial for writing a great resume.
Once you know your value proposition, you can decide on your resume strategy. (Didn’t think resumes needed a strategy? Think again! Sound strategies are why our clients consistently tell us that their job search shifted into top gear once they had a new resume).
Finally, we’ll show you how to put it all together and create a compelling resume that truly speaks to your target employers. And we provide lots of real world resume examples to help inspire you.
Is This Guide for You?
Our resume writing principles are pretty universal, so whether you have 2 years of experience or 30, you will be able to follow the steps and create a super-powered resume that blows recruiters away.
However, if you are just starting out in your career and don’t yet have any work experience, this guide isn’t for you. In that case, it would be better to work with a college career counselor to develop a resume.
Also, this guide isn’t suitable for those planning a career change. Instead, you should check out The Complete System for Career Change, which walks you through the process of creating a resume for a brand new field.
