WHAT IS THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT OF A TOP-NOTCH RESUME?

IF YOU ARE UNEMPLOYED

How much income are you losing every day that you are unemployed? Divide your annual salary by 52 weeks and divide that by 5 days per week.

Client A's Former Salary = $85,000 Annually, Divided by 52 = $1634/Week, Divided by 5 Days = $326 per Day in Lost Wages

• RESULT:  This client paid $650 for her resume, which will pay for itself, even if it shortens her job search by just two days.

IF YOU ARE EMPLOYED AND WANT TO MOVE UP

Client B was an IT Director making $125,000. He wanted to increase his salary by 15%. A recruiter contacted him about a position, but the competition was tough. He invested in a top-notch resume, aced the interview, and was hired at $147,500 annually -- an 18% increase. This client paid $865 for his resume. How long did it take for the resume to pay for itself? The $22,500 raise = an additional $432 per week in increased salary.

• RESULT:  This candidate's resume paid for itself in two weeks in the new position.
