We will help you find a bet­ter job faster.

Resume Guide­lines

There is a sci­ence to resume writ­ing and we are experts. A typ­i­cal hir­ing man­ager spends only 60 sec­onds read­ing a resume (no joke). Thus, your resume needs to be con­cise, skim-able, and easy to read. We have clear rules and guide­lines for our resume writ­ers in order to ensure quality.

These guide­lines include:

  • Only pro­duc­ing 1 page resumes
  • Uti­liz­ing Times New Roman or Cal­ibri font because it has been shown in sci­en­tific stud­ies to be the most leg­i­ble font for most people
  • Using 11 or 12 point font
  • Stud­ies have shown peo­ple don’t read para­graphs but they do read bul­let points. Hence, our resumes incor­po­rate bul­let points instead of paragraphs.
  • The name of the com­pany, your posi­tion, and job descrip­tion are more impor­tant than the dates of your employ­ment. Con­se­quently, our resumes focus on the for­mer by putting them on the left side of the resume, bolded, in bul­lets, or ital­i­cized for emphasis.
  • We divide our resumes into sec­tions sep­a­rated by lines to ensure that the hir­ing man­ager can eas­ily find impor­tant information.
  • All final ver­sion resumes are reviewed by 2 resume writ­ers before being sent out for qual­ity con­trol purposes.
  • We do not include more than 4 jobs or 7 years of work expe­ri­ence on a resume (it makes the client look like he or she jumps from one job to another) unless it is absolutely essential.
  • Do not include high school edu­ca­tion on resume unless you are under 20 years old and have not attended college

This is the worst job mar­ket in recent mem­ory and our clients expect us to give them a com­pet­i­tive edge with a great resume.

      William C (Sales)  Rochester, NY

      Hi vijay. I wanted to let you know that I got into duke! Thanks for your help.

      Kelsey (Nurs­ing) Los Ange­les, CA

      Vijay is a great inter­view coach. Very pro­fes­sional. I was always so scared of inter­view­ing before. He gave me confidence.

      Julia (Biotech) Los Ange­les, CA

      I was dri­ving and think­ing about who else I need to thank for their help. I thought of you and said to myself I need to text or email Vijay tonight. So sorry I didn’t get to you ear­lier, but the answer is YES! And I have to admit that I give you HUGE credit for my accep­tance. You helped me so much with the whole process and I am so incred­i­bly thank­ful for all of your help. I’ll be start­ing this com­ing fall as a med­ical stu­dent at Indi­ana Uni­ver­sity School of Medicine!!!

      Danny (Med­ical Stu­dent) Los Ange­les, CA

      I was work­ing in a bank for the last 5 years but my growth was almost zero. No appre­ci­a­tion, no mon­e­tary incen­tives and no addi­tional ben­e­fits I was get­ting. Then I moved on to find a good job. I got chances to give inter­views but even being an expe­ri­ence banker I was unable to clear the inter­views. With some of my ref­er­ence I took coach­ing classes online from Vijay and enhance my abil­ity to answers the ques­tions, how to sit, talk and other traits. I greatly appre­ci­ate Vijay as he makes me will­ing­ness to get suc­cess in inter­views. I still in touch with vijay and rec­om­mend all to inter­act with him if you want bright career.

      Nancy (Bank­ing) Dal­las, TX

      After the con­struc­tion com­pany I worked for over the last 5 years closed down, I found myself out of work. I went to a cou­ple of job inter­views and found I did badly. VJ at helped pre­pare me one on one via Skype for the inter­view process again and coached me on over­com­ing my ner­vous­ness. He also helped me tweak my resume so I would stand out. To be hon­est, I haven’t found a job yet, but VJ helped me in my job search.

      Keri R (Account­ing) Salem, OR

      My com­pany matched [retracted] offer so I ended up stay­ing. Still appre­ci­ate all your help. If you need a ref­er­ence let me know.

      Alec (Sales and Mar­ket­ing) Los Ange­les, CA

      You gave me some good ideas about how to men­tion the best parts of my resume in the interview.
