10 Resume Experts We Love
Speaking of financial backgrounds: Unlike many of the people featured on this list, Jaras is not a resume writer. She is, however, a compensation coach – and that’s exactly why she’s a resume expert.
“I’ve seen too many career coaches and recruiters focus on formatting the resume to get an interview, but they don’t take into account that – to a very large extent – your resume will also determine your salary,” Jaras says. “The best resumes walk a fine line between self-promotion and establishing a firm relation between your worth and the position description, because ultimately, whomever sets your salary will judge you and make assumptions [based] on the paper portrait of you.”
It’s easy to forget that resumes don’t only get you to an interview, that they have an impact on the company’s perception of your worth as well. That’s why it’s important to follow the advice of someone like Jaras when you’re crafting your resume.
