Liz Determan created Writing Remarkable Resumes to connect job candidates to their career calling.
She creates remarkable personal branding materials—including resumes, cover letters, bios, and LinkedIn profiles—
for personal marketing campaigns. Liz is known for uncovering unique stories and significant achievements
to develop client materials that garner attention from recruiters.
You have six seconds to make a good impression. That's the length of time most recruiters look at a resume. It's important to make a VERY quick good first impression.
Does your cover letter convey how you will make a good fit within the organization? A strong letter highlighting hard skills needs to be complemented by soft skills, as well.
Recruiters oftentimes search LinkedIn to find out WHY they should hire a candidate. Profiles should contain the right keywords, skills, and strengths but also core values, traits, and unique characteristics.
You are not a number. If a new career is important to you, then it's important to Writing Remarkable Resumes!
We thrive on connecting job candidates to their career calling! That's our calling...
By asking the right questions, we sift through your information to create compelling
personal branding communications that demonstrate why you are a good fit with your desired organization.
The client consultation is critical to a successful project. This is where resume strategies and branding are determined based on career history and goals.
In order to tailor personal branding materials, it is important to identify key themes, words, and skills that are listed in the job description so they can be translated in marketing materials.
Resumes have to get past the almighty Applicant Tracking System (ATS) before it will be reviewed by a human. To unlock ATS, the correct industry keywords need to be part of the resume.
Resumes that stand out among the rest are formatted correctly, have clean design elements, and are properly branded. When paired with accomplishment-based stories, these resumes land candidates on the short list for interviews.
If you have a resume that needs to be updated or one that has not been landing interviews,
feel free to have Writing Remarkable Resumes review it. We would be happy to let you know if it needs a slight retweeking or if a consultation can help. Sometimes the right keywords aren't listed correctly. Oftentimes, job candidates don't know exactly how to convey all of their accomplishments. Maybe something is getting blocked in ATS. We can help you get moving in the right direction!
"Liz recently created a professional resume for me after being in the classroom for the past 25+ years. We communicated several times, both over the phone and via email. She was able to take my skeleton resume and make something visually incredible and very easy to read. I was able to use that resume to land an incredible job at the University of Arizona, which was my goal! I am thrilled with the resume Liz created and highly recommend her. She is incredibly detailed orientated and works to be sure she creates the best resume possible. I am forever grateful for her work!"
