Create a resume that gets employers' attention
Looking for a job is an intensely stressful even terrifying process. The job market is a brutally competitive place for workers no matter their occupations, qualifications, or career stages.
We submit applications for numerous positions that seem to just fall into black holes of oblivion. We sit at our computers with weary eyes filling out pages of online applications providing information that makes us feel uneasy—no matter how secure the connection. We take assessments to prove our worth as workers no matter how skilled and accomplished we are. We anxiously wonder if our resumes will persuade employers that we are – at least – worthy of an interview (that is, if they show up in search results of employers' applicant tracking systems (ATS)).

You could use this resume to apply for many positions—depending on employers' requirements. You could also add appropriate words to match employers' job advertisements. This will increase the likelihood that your resume appears in APS searches.
If, however, you need a resume targeted precisely to a particular position, I could revise your resume for you.
