A lot can happen in one minute. 15 books will be published, Facebook posts will get 1.8m ‘likes’, 21,000 pizzas will be baked and 250 babies will be born. Something else that can happen in 60-seconds, is that your career could change forever.

The reality is that many people responsible for hiring, by the very nature of their job, rely on their instincts when sifting through resumes to find the perfect applicant. Therefore, they have the ability to pinpoint that elusive quality in 60-seconds or less. They have developed a kind of mental shorthand to help them focus on the crucial factors that reveal the individual behind the qualifications and relevant experience.

Select Resumes knows this because our professionals have worked on this side of the fence and know precisely what will get you noticed. It is the sum of the parts of the entire package that will reveal the real you. The cover letter is a summation of your career and articulates what you will bring to the role; the resume sets out in detail your skills, experiences and professional accomplishments, whilst the key selection criteria communicates to the hirer your precise understanding of the requirements of the role and your suitability to execute them.

But this is where that 60-second rule applies – the package is all of these things, but the experienced hirer has the ability to read between the words – to extract the essence of the individual by examining how you have presented yourself in these documents. Namely, your presentation, your aesthetic choices in the layout, your written skills and your eloquence in conveying a clear picture of both you and your understanding of the job you are applying for.

It is our job at Select Resumes to get you noticed, and we know all the techniques that companies use in the selection process for interviews. So, to safeguard one of the most important 60-seconds of your life, take a minute to call our team and book a consultation to take your career to the next level.
