Is Your Resumé / CV a Winner?
Or is it a Lemon?

Not getting any interviews and job offers in your offshore / maritime job search? Spending hours and even weeks in endless job searches and nothing to show for it? 

  • If your phone is not ringing
  • And your inbox is not receiving a reasonable amount of job offers

It's time to stop what you are doing and have a look at what you are doing!

Let me get to the heart of the matter:

If you are not getting a reasonable amount of interviews or job offers (especially if you have the qualifications) after sending out countless resumés, there is a reason for it.

9 times out of 10 times the problem is either your resumé (what you are sending out) and / or your delivery process (how you are sending it.)

Both of these are easy fixes. The biggest problem is KNOWING WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. 

I talk to people all the time who tell me "Na, that's not the problem in my case, my resumé is fine." My question is: "Well, if it is FINE, why are you not working?"

You might think your resumé or CV is FINE as is, but the truth of the matter is most folks work better than they write. And this probably includes you.

There are TWO TYPES types of resumés:

  • Those that work and get interviews and job offers

  • Those that don't work (regardless of who wrote it or how FINE you think it is)

The proof is always in the pudding: If you are not getting any action in your offshore / maritime job search, stop what you are doing and get a PROFESSIONAL CRITIQUE.

  • A poorly crafted resumé is the NUMBER ONE CAUSE for applicant rejection.

  • You would not knowingly set out to sea in a vessel that was unseaworthy so why send out a resumé that is just going to sink your chances of getting hired?

Here's a recent letter addressing a resumé I critiqued:

Thank you Ron,

I appreciate your critique of my resumé. After I read it, I immediately saw what you are talking about concerning how hard it is to write a resumé you can trust to get the job done.

I have a degree in education, journalism and English composition. You would think for me writing a resumé would be a breeze. Boy was I wrong! Your principle highlights were right on the mark.

  • Objective not specific
  • Unfriendly format
  • Too much rambling
  • Lacking the essential element of "SELL"

I rewrote my resumé following your recommendations. The difference in responses was immediate and nothing short of spectacular. It resulted in my getting several nice offers to choose from when before I was getting zip.

I'm now working in the Gulf of Mexico for Transocean on a new semi submersible as a storekeeper. We are working 14 on, 14 off and it looks as if the rig will be going to Brazil later on this year.

Again, I want to thank you kindly for you help. Your critique made the difference.

Holy smokes you've already been the best 45 dollars I've ever spent.  How do I send it back through for another critique (can I do that)?

Is this Mr. Edwards or an employee? It doesn't really matter who is answering my emails because what I'm about to say speaks volumes no matter who it is.  I have subscriptions to two other resume building websites and have spent countless hours in the local career link trying to accomplish what you have helped me accomplish in just a few emails.

I am speaking from the bottom of my heart when I say that this is the best $ 45 dollars I have ever spent.  If....No....WHEN  I finally get that special reply asking me to show up for an interview I will have a surprise for whoever you are.  Thank you very much for all your help whether you're the Cpt. or not!

Money is tight these days and no doubt you want to save whenever you can, and understandably so. You might be trying to save money by writing your own resumé or getting a friend / family member to write it or help write it. You might have purchased (or considering purchasing) resumé writing software, thinking this is the answer. In the long run most of these choices will not turn out to be very productive.

Warning: Beware of any web site that offers a FREE professional online web resumé or you could spend money and lots of time sending something out that looks like this or this! There is no web site or software program ANYWHERE that will write a better resumé for you than a real person.

It makes NO SENSE WHAT SO EVER to send out a resumé that is just going to get trashed because it is poorly written. Most people work better than they write and are not very good at writing about their abilities, experiences and qualifications in a way that will get them hired. 

You can put your time, your energy and / or your money into writing what you consider to be the "perfect resumé" and still have it bomb big time.

You will not get a second chance to make a good first impression. Get it right the first time and spend your energy working and not searching. 

A professional critique will:

  • Provide an honest, unbiased and independent appraisal of your current resumé or CV
  • It will show you, step by step, how to fix what's wrong. If your resumé has problems, I'll tell you exactly what they are and how to take care of them.
  • You can get this critique FREE along with pointers, suggestions, examples and the kind of help that will get you job interviews and get you hired.

"Better to be SAFE than SORRY!"
