 ???  Since I have spent my entire career in the commercial/DOE world my resume, as a road warrior, is very long and much to wordy.  I am seeking information on a RELIABLE company/person who understands our terminology and has the expertise to rewrite my resume so that non-nuclear companies can understand what I am trying to get across and can provide the right words to make it look enticing to a new company.  I have tried this on several occasions, only to have the resume come back as nothing but garbage.  Can anyone provide me with a source?  We are talking many, many years.

Perhaps yourself. You would understand what you have done better than anyone else. You need to get the terminology that the recipient uses and custom write your resume using the same words and phrases the recipient uses. Your resume will be scanned into a computer and matched to the terminology in the computer. The computer will evaluate your resume based on what matches. It will then spit out a report with a suitability rating to a human that probably doesn't understand anything more than that number. So you better learn how to write your own resume because you'll have to tweak it for every application that you submit.

I disagree with the one page. A rule of thumb is one page for every ten years you've worked. I've also heard it no longer matters how long it is, as it's scanned digitally first, but like scotoma said, make sure you use the same terms as the job posting, and if possible, show how you meet each of their requirements and have been successful in some of the duties/responsibilities for the job.


BTW, Sloglo, I use Grammarly for college and your post just made it explode.
