This often-overlooked document can make all the difference. Written properly, it can do wonders to set you on the path to a successful career and livelihood. But neglect it and you’re guaranteed to waste your potential and talent.
You have to understand. All business is a people business.
And the resume business is no different.
Not only are you trying to win the attention of another human being, but you’re also trying to sell yourself as the perfect candidate. You need to convince them that you are indeed the ideal fit for the specific role and organisation.
Given today’s digital world, where your competitors can apply in a ‘click’, and attention spans have reached an all-time low – this is now more crucial than ever. You need to stand out from the pool of resumes swamping employers on a daily basis.
If you are serious about progressing your career, you cannot afford to just ‘leave it to chance’. You need every advantage possible to succeed.
This is not a perfect world we live in. The ideal candidate does not always end up with the job. Nor the interview. There’s a reason why studies show it costs businesses more than 50% of a candidate’s salary for a new hire. All the while, a bad hire can cost up to 2.5 times more than a candidate’s salary. (Business Review Australia)
This is a serious underlying issue within the recruitment industry. Mostly due to human error.
Why would you leave your future in the hands of ‘human error’?
Why when there’s a simple way to alleviate this issue? A professional resume that communicates your skills and fit for the role and organisation in the most effective way possible.
It’s a shame but the hard-working, competent individual is not always given the opportunity to maximise their potential. Showcase their talent. And accelerate their career. Simply because they do not understand how to sell themselves.
No matter how you look at it – it all begins with the resume.
First impressions really do matter.
Job hunting can be a stressful and energy-draining process.
Have confidence knowing your resume is in trusted professional hands.

To begin, we encourage you to send us your current resume for a free resume review callback. You may still book an onboarding consultation call if you do not wish to have a resume review.
During the call, a senior member of our team will gather more information about your specific situation, including your professional experience, career goals, and needs. You will also be given notes on the strengths & weaknesses of your resume and tips to improve.
They will then determine if you are best qualified to receive BC Resumes’ services. If you are, you will receive a recommendation for our best solution tailored to your specific situation.

However, we can ensure we’ll create the best resume possible for you, while adhering to the best industry standards. And based on the feedback we receive, our clients do tend to be successful in their subsequent job searches.
As we are an extremely personalised service, we cannot provide a one-size-fits-all price. Please book a free consultation & resume review call with us today, to see if you qualify for our services. If you do – our consultant will provide you with personalised quotes depending on your desired level of service.
