Chic Resumes by Grammar Chic Adds Specificity to Resumes to Improve Job Seeker Success

Posted: Updated:
Chic Resumes, professional resume writing branch of Grammar Chic Inc., explains why resume specificity is a must in today’s competitive job market.

Although recent job market reports have shown that unemployment rates are falling in many areas of the United States, Chic Resumes by Grammar Chic Inc., says that job seekers are still likely to find heavy competition. This professional resume writing service has found that with increased opportunities for career development, many individuals are eager to find gainful employment—and some may be quick to rush into a job search.

This summer, with raised employment and the annual rush of post-graduate job seekers, recruiters and hiring managers are seeing a great deal of resumes. Amanda Clark, CEO of Chic Resumes explains, “With more resumes coming in, recruiters are likely to spend even less time reviewing applications than the average ‘six seconds.’ If a hiring party sees a resume that looks repetitive or offers no observable professional identity, then the candidate will probably be passed over.”

Fortunately, job seekers can gain greater confidence by reworking the wording of their resumes, according to Chic Resumes. The company notes that individuals who break away from overly-used terms and take more time to carefully explain their qualifications may leave a stronger impression on potential employers.

To highlight the power of specificity the Chic Resumes team points to a recent article from Business News Daily that outlines the qualities of the “perfect resume.” The post reveals how specific keywords can add emphasis to important points in a resume that will help candidates stand out in a crowd of other applicants who may have similar qualifications.

Apart from presenting a high-skill level, specificity in resumes and on cover letters can provide a “human-voice” to a candidate, according to a recent Forbes article. It suggests, “…if you write your resume the way countless books and articles have instructed you to, you’re going to sound

like a Star Wars Battle Drone or a zombie. Standard resume language like “Results-oriented professional with a bottom-line orientation” brands you exactly like every other banana in the bunch. It’s excruciating for a hiring manager to read a resume that sounds like it was the written by a robot rather than a human being.”

Clark responds, “There is a fine line between showing too much personality on a resume and presenting a lack of enthusiasm or accomplishment to an employer. With the right word choices and performance details, job seekers can navigate this space carefully can provide the balanced image that hiring parties want to hire.”

While many may appreciate the need to add specific details to a resume, it is often recommended to have a resume reviewed by a professional. Those who have the experience, but still do not know how to make their resumes “stand out,” are invited to contact the professional writers at Chic Resumes at (803) 831-7444 or resumewriting@grammarchic.net.
