If your current resume is not achieving interviews for you, it could be for a number of reasons. Usually, it is because the structure and content of the document are not compatible with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) algorithms. It could also be as a result of the overall appearance of the document, or, the content itself does not sell your value proposition to hiring organisations. Our free resume health check will critique the document structure, layout and content, providing advice and information on where your resume could be improved or if it is beyond salvation. Our detailed resume health check is free and there is no need to purchase any of our professional services. We generally provide a full detailed report within 48-hours.
