Your resume establishes your brand quickly with prospective employers and recruiters. Typically, a reader will glance through a resume in less than 30 seconds before committing to read in detail. It is imperative to your job search to have a clear, well-formatted, impactful resume that captures the reader's attention and draws the reader into reading your details. At Lucas Select, we have worked with several resume professionals who have help candidates deliver a professional and attention-grabbing brand. We recommend all of these resume professionals.
