When conducting your job search, it is essential to have a powerful resume profile, but is it just good…or is your resume profile powerful enough to get your foot in the door? Is there even such a thing and how do you know? Ultimately, your resume profile should intrigue the decision-maker, hiring manager or recruiter enough to scan through your resume and place you in the interview list of candidates- receiving the interview call and then you will have the opportunity to “wow” them in person.

Here are two tips to help you create Your Powerful Resume Profile:
