This is a guest post by Johnathan over at JCBDiagnostics.
You are now an experienced programmer, ready to find a job! Now what? Can you already feel the dread that preparing a resume brings with it?
Don’t worry, only great ideas on how to help you here! In addition to needing related experience, you will also need a professional and polished resume to land your dream job. As someone who has participated in several hiring committees, I can honestly say that candidates can be rejected in seconds just by looking at their resumes.
Weird fonts, unexplainable formatting, unrelated information, and grammatical errors are some of the most common reasons why someone’s resume goes in the ‘NO’ pile.
A Resume That Stands Out
In order for me to keep a resume in my hand and actually read about the candidate, it has to have a special ‘pop’ to it.
In today’s post, I want to tell you how to get an eye-catching resume designed for you for only $5 that takes only a few minutes. You won’t have to Google ‘resume templates’ and spend days tweaking it to make it match the picture you have in your head.
This process is actually much simpler, costs $5, and maybe 5 minutes. Here are the basics: submit your information, pay $5, wait a day or two, and receive a PDF version of an amazing resume via email to print and send out to all of those district recruiters.
A resume has to have a special “pop” to it
Fiverr has a ton of services and products that you can browse and purchase, the majority of which are only $5. The site itself is just a collection of individuals, similar to you and me, who are experts at specific tasks. They sell that skill or service to people who need it for $5. It’s basically a different version of Etsy.
I’ve used the site in the past, and have had good results. The people on the site are interested in becoming top sellers and provide great customer service to achieve that.
Why Pay For a Resume?
I’m targeting resume services in this post because a great resume is an invaluable resource. A piece of paper that details your entire life and work experience for employers is not easy to create on your own.
I chose this particular seller because he has over 4,000 positive reviews, he responds quickly, and he is a graphic designer who provides quality products. You can find his page here.
Just click on that link and look at some of the sample resumes. They look amazing! I wouldn’t think twice about seriously considering a candidate who showed up to an interview with a resume that looks like that. It communicates authority, creativity, and makes the person look like they have their stuff together.
Another bonus about this guy is that if you aren’t satisfied, or want to change something about the final version, he provides revisions! He does have more expensive options, but all you need is the $5 ‘Basic’ package.
Do yourself a favor and give yourself a boost over other job candidates and have a resume created for you. This is easy, it costs $5, and it saves you a huge amount of time.
Some people pay hundreds of dollars to professional companies for resume building. It doesn’t have to cost that much. Save yourself the time and effort and make your resume stand out!
