How Gemma, a TopResume writer, helped Casey

Casey had been working in the nonprofit world for a number of years and was looking to make a change. She was eager to use her budget management experience in a different field, but was unsure how to highlight her skills in a way that would attract employers. Her original resume simply didn’t give recruiters a good idea of her job goals. Plus, it was missing those crucial keywords that would help her applications get past the initial electronic filters.

I helped Casey figure out which of her skills would be most valuable to hiring managers in the financial services industry, her target field, and highlighted them throughout her professional summary and work experience. This helped tell Casey’s story in a way that employers would understand and appreciate, and ensured her applications would make it past the applicant tracking systems.

In her own words

My writer was able to pull out a better story. When I saw the skills that she highlighted for me, I was able to think ‘oh right, I am good at that.’
