Miami-Lauderdale’s Best Professional Resume & LinkedIn Profile Writers
As South Florida’s top-rated resume and LinkedIn writing service, we can help you take a permanent vacation from your dead-end job. In the past, the Miami Herald and Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel job classifieds were the primary way to start your job search. Job recruiters now use LinkedIn as their central job board to post vacancies and search for business professionals. The LinkedIn digital network has become the best job board listing 100,000+ career vacancies. One of the advantages of business social media is the capability to understand how you are digitally related to the hiring manager at the organization. This method requires a keyword-optimized professional resume and profile that improves visibility in LinkedIn and Google search algorithms. Since 2009, we have helped many South Florida professionals and executives.
ATS Friendly Resume Format Explained
Applicant tracking system (ATS) is software job recruiters use to automatically import, scan, filter, and rank resumes submitted when candidates upload them to job postings. ATS cannot read and process documents with fancy formats. A resume with tables, charts, images, two columns, boxes, headers, and footers, will likely be rejected by the ATS before a human sees it. Professional resumes use a simple, text-only format. LinkedIn is the place to add images, videos, articles, and other creative examples of your work.
Resume layout job recruiters expect to see:
Format: use reverse-chronological work experience resume format. List your most recent job at the top.
Fonts: use narrow width fonts like Calibri or another sans-serf font like Arial
Heading font-size: 11 or 12-point size
Body text font-size: 10.5 is the standard resume font size, but 10 or 11 are acceptable.
Line spacing: prefer .5 between experiences, but 0 is acceptable.
Resume margins: .5 or .75 inches all around.
Dates: include year and month 01/202-07/2023.
File type: submitting a resume in Microsoft Word is acceptable. A PDF is not required.
Resume critical parts and sections:
