Acceleration’s professional resume reviewers have reviewed thousands of resumes since 2003. If you are considering a change in the industry, a higher salary, or an important professional move, you need a resume that gets you in front of a hiring manager. Acceleration’s resume services focus on the Applicant Tracking System (ATS).
A keyword is a hard or soft skill that is stated in the job description. Most employers use a software called an applicant tracking system (ATS) to gather and review resumes for jobs. The ATS collects your resume data and makes it searchable for keywords. Most employers use ATS to see how closely your resume matches their requirements. Keywords are used as filters (often automated) to find candidates who may be the best fit for the job and prioritize them. If you do not have these keywords in your resume, the employer might miss your resume so it is vital to include keywords to give your resume a strong chance of being reviewed.
The era of neat borders, colorful paper, and fancy office paper ended over a decade ago when hard copy submissions of resumes went the way of the dodo bird. Resumes are submitted electronically, so content is paramount. Make sure your resume is properly structured with the right content, page lengths, and subject matter. There are times when education should be emphasized in a resume and there are other times when your experience should be at the forefront. Acceleration can guide you in optimizing your resume and landing that job.
EX-FELONS & CONVICTS
At Acceleration, we firmly believe in forgiveness and the opportunity to reform one's character. Some citizens will make terrible choices and irrational mistakes. It happens. The need for jails and prisons will never cease to exist so long as there are fallible people. If a person has paid society's penance for their crime(s), such person should be afforded the opportunity to earn a living upon release. Criminal justice studies repeatedly show that recidivism rates are far lower for ex-felons with steady employment after their sentence than those who struggle to find consistent employment. As a part of improving our society, we offer a 50% discount on all services herein for those formerly incarcerated and verifiable as a former inmate within the past five (5) years. Acceleration is a change specialist for people wanting to make a change in their lives.
