Most people have a resume they feel is a perfectly good document to use in a job search. What many people don't know is that most online application systems and recruiters use applicant tracking software (ATS) to pinpoint skills using keywords. We understand how to build keywords into any type of resume. We also know how to highlight achievements and use language to show the value you've been bringing to your current and past positions. It's hard to brag about yourself, so let us do it for you!
A resume is a unique and personal document - make yours stand out and get the attention you deserve from recruiters.
Resume Writing Workshops
If your organization could benefit from a 60 or 90 minute resume writing workshop, contact Ghost Resumes! The standard workshop covers topics including different types of resumes (Chronological, CV, Functional, Federal) and when/why to use them, how to optimize your own resume for ATS systems, resume content strategy and formatting, and leveraging LinkedIn. We can tailor a workshop for your organization to share the best information for your specific needs.
Why we give free resume reviews: sometimes you don't need a new resume
Every once in a while a client comes along whose resume is already well-written. Most other resume services will take your money and reformat your resume using your own words. If you want a reformatted resume with no new content, this isn't the company for you. We're not graphic artists, we're wordsmiths. If you send us a resume that is in really good condition, we'll tell you and you can save your money.
Our ultimate goal is to help you get in the door for a job interview.
Welcome to Ghost Resumes! I'm Carey, the head writer and owner of the company. As a Certified Professional Resume Writer, I have been writing professional resumes for over 20 years - some projects as a freelance writer and as a contractor for a top-tier global resume writing service. I've written resumes for candidates from C-level executives to new graduates, people looking to move into completely new functional areas, people who are returning to the workforce, and many more.
Having worked for an executive recruiting firm and an administrative staffing agency, I understand what recruiters are looking for in a resume.
I earned a Master of Arts in Communication from Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor of Science in Communication from Arizona State University, and I am certified by the Professional Association of Resume Writers.
