Whether one is looking for a job or a long term career position, they should never underestimate the power of a well presented resume to speak to a prospective employer with not only efficiency and dispatch, but in ways that applications typically do not. Local Resume Services are staffed by people trained to ensure that more of you is presented than you can usually document on an application. Local Resume Services will, of course, request that you provide a work history and your educational background, as many applications allow you to do, but the resume allows them to show so much more. For instance, as each occupation is listed, the various skills you were asked to demonstrate or learn, while working in that particular position, can be shown. Sections pertaining to other skills acquired through work, school, or personal study or experience can provide an even greater expression of ones talents. Local Resume Services are experienced in organizing this information into a readily accessible format. In other words, Local Resume Services will typically allow their clients to choose from different colored and better textured paper than the typical printer paper most people use at home. In addition, they may offer laser printing capability over water-soluble ink jet print that inevitably makes for a smudgy document when it gets wet.
