The Resumes We Help Our Clients To Produce Open Interview Doors...
As security industry executive recruiters, we review and evaluate thousands of resumes every year. We understand what works and what doesn’t in a security resume because we sit between hiring decision makers and security job seekers every day. We don't just write resumes. We work closely with hiring decision makers to know precisely what these individuals want, need and expect from security professionals.
This knowledge sits behind our proprietary methodology for developing security, risk, compliance, audit and privacy resumes that open interview doors.
When we're finished collaberatively working together, you'll receive a resume that will be read and considered rather than a resume that will get lost in today’s shuffle of high-volume electronic information.
Why SecurityRecruiter.com's Security Resume Writing Services?
Because of our expertise as security recruiters, we also know the secrets of the security executive recruiting trade. This inside knowledge helps us to produce a resume that is quickly scannable and invites the reader to actually want to read from top to bottom.
Consider These Odds
This is no easy task when we're told that for a recent Manager of Global Security job opening for example, the company that posted the job received 400 resumes in 10 days and had to close down the resume acceptance process. Having your resume land in the top 10 out of 400 requires it to be a cut above.
Your new resume will be created in a format that is easily handled by Applicant Tracking Systems that both external recruiters and human resource professionals routinely use to track resumes.
Your new resume will pass a 10-15 second human eyeball scan. This is the self-defense scan that happens when a busy resume reader doesn't have time to read every resume in the pile. When your new resume is sitting in front of a decision maker who needs your skills, your resume will float to the top and land in the pile of resumes that will be set aside and read from top to bottom.
At this point, your resume needs to clearly demonstrate achievement, accomplishment, contribution and value. We'll teach you how to create content that communicates what you've done in the past and how your past performance could translate to future success with a new employer.

A Highly Interactive Process
Once we agree to work together, we will send you a proprietary security resume writing worksheet and plenty of examples to help you get started with content creation. Yes, you will learn how to create compelling content. Nobody else has walked with you in your shoes throughout your career so nobody can create your initial content. We'll become your resume writing coach and/or resume wriiting editor once you've returned the worksheet.
This is not a resume re-write process.
When you return the completed worksheet to us we will create a custom security resume geared to highlight your skills, strengths, accomplishments and personal objectives. This is a highly interactive process that starts with an initial consultation phone call.

One Last Thought to Consider
The job market is competitive. You already know that. We've helped security professionals to create resumes that have opened doors to big jobs. If you're at $85,000 and your new resume opens the door to a $95,000 job, what is it worth to have a resume that floats to the surface?
If you're at $150,000 today, you already know that you're nearing the top of the pyramid. Competition for the $200,000 jobs is stiff. You absolutely need a competitive edge. Don't take a chance with your resume. It is your personal branding and marketing material before anyone gets to hear you speak.

Recently, I told Jeff that the "homework" had jarred loose many memories of accomplishments that I had long since forgotten over my career.

A security resume writing case study
“You know, I've hired 5 people in the last three years and I've reviewed hundreds of resumes that were all over the place in terms of quality and quantity. I think this one stacks up with some of the best in terms of the layout and format. I really like how you highlighted key terms and I imagine I ought to review the job announcements for positions I plan to pursue and plug key words in as appropriate and applicable to increase the probability that my resume will end up in the interview pile…
One Month Later…
I am experiencing noticeable success using the impact oriented resume that Jeff helped me produce recently. The before and after results are significant. It's only been a month since I posted the resume we co-created to only one online job board that specializes in information technology opportunities. I'm only focusing on full time, private sector, non-audit, security oriented roles in a very small market of about 1.7 million people. Before hiring Jeff, I fielded 1-2 calls/emails monthly and my LinkedIn profile might experience 5-6 views per week. Now I field about 6-8 calls/emails per week and my LinkedIn profile experiences 17-20 views per week. Each week, I'm presented with attractive opportunities to interview with reputable companies which allows me, believe it or not, to be somewhat selective. Most importantly, I am in my fourth round of interviews for a security opportunity at Citrix for which I did not apply (I was recruited) and I received a message recently from Cisco that they may contact me soon to schedule an interview for a position for which I did submit an application and a Jeff Snyder, SecurityRecruiter.com produced resume.” Manager, IT Audit
“Just wanted to follow up with you on another resume writing success story. Using the resume, I was able to land a position with a major insurance company - I start this Monday. In fact, I referred your services to a colleague who may be contacting you. Thanks again for all your help!” Security Operations Management Lead
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
