This is a collaborative effort between us;  you provide the information, we put it together in an effective format, featuring your skills, experience and accomplishments.
What's the goal of a resume?

Goal One: Get past the 5 to 10 second test.

The resume reviewer will glance at your resume for about 5 to 10 seconds to decide if it's worth closer scrutiny.

Goal Two: Get past the 10 to 30 second test.

If you passed the 5 to 10 second test, closer scrutiny will last up to about 30 seconds for the reviewer to decide if you are aligned closely enough with the hiring company's needs to warrant further consideration, proceeding potentially to an interview.
