Why a High Quality Resume is So Important

Why is a high quality resume so very important to your career? We’ll give you some tips right here on why you should have the best resume writing service you can afford in your back pocket.

A resume is needed in order to get an interview. It’s part of the application process. And, if you are chosen, that actual resume may be used in the interview itself. You want to have the best possible chance at the starting gate.

A high quality resume is absolutely essential to help the hiring manager decide if you are a good match for the position. A resume is either eyeballed by the hiring manager or scanned for specific keywords as applicable to the position.

If eyeballed, the hiring manager can tell in 15 seconds if you are a prospective match. That’s it. You have 15 seconds. If scanned, the keywords used in your resume will need to be a good match to the pre-chosen keywords in the scan.

If not, it’s just a big NO. On the other hand, if a match is found, it’s a nice happy YES.

Your resume tells the prospective employer about you, your work history, your skill set, and what you bring to the table in terms of being a good fit for the position. This is mission critical.

Bottom line your first impression is your most important one. And that first impression is your resume.

Maureen McCullough LLC has been preparing resumes and cover letters for over 15 years. We’ve taken on some tough clients, most notably those who did something they loved 30 years ago, and now want to go back to that chosen line of work.

The Many Benefits of a Well Organized Office

The benefits of a well organized office, whether it be a home office, small company office or a corporate office cannot be overstated. The most obvious benefits are functionality, productivity and efficiency.

Organized Home Office Work Space

You are able to find everything when you need it, thereby able to service your clients or customers quickly and efficiently, and people like that. They don’t want to hear that you can’t find their paperwork or whatnot. People don’t like excuses. 

Another benefit of a well organized office is less stress. Put simply, you know where stuff is. Your files are where they should be. Your computer is also organized so you can easily and quickly find documents and images. And I think we can agree less stress in our lives is a huge plus.

As a professional organizer and organizing service here in Bergen County NJ since 2009, we’ve had plenty of experience helping clients get their offices and work spaces optimally organized, decluttered and in excellent working order. We set up a system that you can easily stick with and stay organized with for the long term. 

Here are just a few of the ways we help you:

  • Declutter, sort and shred everything you are not using, haven’t used in a long time, don’t want or don’t need
  • Establish an efficient filing system – since we are in the digital age, mountains of paper files are no longer necessary to have around
  • Organize your digital and cloud based filing areas – keep less files on your actual hard drive, more on the cloud. Hard drives die. 
  • Declutter your desktop. Keep the necessary tools you use and get rid of the rest. 
  • Declutter and organize your filing and supply drawers or cabinets. 
  • Create inboxes that make sense especially if you work with other people.
  • Sort through your mail on a regular basis to avoid the dreaded PILE
  • Rearrange your office furniture for a more relaxing, realigned and functional way to work. This encourages productivity. Productivity is good. 
  • Create zones for different tasks. The creation of work space zones also encourages productivity which means you get more stuff done and move on. 

If you would like to operate your Bergen County New Jersey business more efficiently, be more productive and gain more clients or customers, give us a call or text us at 201.753.1677 and let’s get started!

Getting Your Business to Show Up on Google Local Near Me Searches

It makes perfect sense for any business to be able to show up on Google when potential clients search for a local business near them. However, many businesses do NOT show up when potential customers or clients search. The typical search would be “jewelry store near me” or “dwi lawyer near me” or “general contractor near me”.

The landscape has changed in regards to the demise of Google+, sometimes referred to as Google Plus, which I personally considered pretty lame. However, the upside of this is the new and improved Google My Business. Which I am actually impressed with. And I’ll tell you why. It really enables the business owner to control their presence and to connect with their audience and potential clients.

The quick and dirty procedure to get your business to show up on the local near me listings is the following:

Google Maps Ranking Factors – fill out your entire business listing completely and comprehensively and you will see the rewards with better exposure.

1) It always pays to verify your Google My Business Information – so make sure you do this.

2) Encourage your current clients / customers to leave you reviews on Google.

3) Take the time to properly categorize your business – the more careful you are to target your niche, the easier it will be for people to find your business.

4) Optimize your listing description – this is all done under the INFO tab on the left. Categories, service areas, your hours, phone, website, appointment url (even if that is just your contact us page), description, and any photos you might want to add.

5) Using a local telephone number is preferable to using an 800 number. Many 800 or 888 numbers are robo call numbers or spam numbers. If you want to come up in local searches, use a local phone number. This also shows Google you really are a local business.

6) Embedding a Google Map on your website is further proof of credibility and legitimacy.

How to embed a Google Map on your website? Google My Business makes this super easy for you. From the dashboard of your listing, click on INFO in the left hand menu. Then, all the way to your right click on View on Maps. Next, on your maps view, look in the left hand column for the three bar menu icon at the top left of the page. Click on that and scroll down to where it says Share or Embed a Map. Click on that.

A small screen pops up that says Share. You have two choices – Send a Link or Embed a Map. Choose Embed a Map. You can choose the map size. Then click on Copy HTML and add that to your contact us page or your website footer widget or send to your website manager to do this for you.

The next step is to create posts with pictures. This is a mission critical step. Going back to your dashboard page, see Posts in the left menu. Click on that. Create a post complete with relevant hashtags, and a relevant image. Your post doesn’t have to be the Great American Novel. Keep it short and sweet.

Since we are always posting about a service we offer or a web design product that we offer, we choose What’s New. At the very bottom you can Add a Button. We always choose Learn More and put the link to the service or product in there. When done, hit Publish.

Be advised that all Google posts expire after 7 days with the exception of Event posts. So be sure to post on a consistent basis of every 3 or 4 days to serve up fresh content. Monitor your insights and watch the traffic to your listing go up. And watch your search engine visibility grow. And listen to the phone ring. It takes some time, as do all good things, but you will have done your business a great service by following these steps and maximizing your Google My Business listing.

***HINT: To make your posting easier and a more streamlined process, we create our original post in our business Instagram Account with all of the appropriate hashtags. We then share it from Instagram directly to our business Facebook page. From there, we copy the content to our Google My Business post. Upload the picture, and we are done. 5 minutes. Literally. And painless.
