The Game Plan: Resume Professors for Fast Turnaround, RUSH Resumes – June 1, 2022

“It’s alright to be in a rush—just don’t be in a hurry!”

The difference? In a word, it’s preparation. At Resume Professors, even though a request may be urgent, the work process doesn’t change. That’s because we apply the same thinking and attention to detail in any scenario, whether it’s for RUSH delivery or within a more typical 2-3 day timeframe. The approach remains the same, only the execution varies.

A bit like a football team switching to its “no-huddle offense” in the waning moments of the fourth quarter.

Our founder Edward McGoldrick still makes all the calls when those calls come in. He knows how to guide clients through the early part of the input process. And, he surrounds himself with a great team of people who know how to get the job done. The idea of hurrying through anything is never a good one. That only makes critical mistakes or oversights more likely. Instead, he works according to a tried-and-true game plan.

Introducing the Starters: Certified Professional Resume Writers (CPRWs)

On any given Sunday (or other day of the week for that matter), Resume Professors has a deep squad of CPRWs to turn to when time is short. That enables them to hit the ground running when a RUSH resume order comes in without hurrying through it. In fact, our 24-hour guarantee even comes with an extra point attempt: pre-gaming every resume we prepare though our own applicant tracking system (ATS) to ensure it’s not stuffed at the line of submission.

The Higher Your Draft Number, The Better Your Chances of Being Signed

It only stands to reason every applicant stands to benefit by getting his or her resume back to their prospective employers as quickly possible. For example, a recent scouting report suggests that many job postings on Glassdoor can receive as many as 250 or more responses. Under those conditions, even the most level playing field isn’t going to stay that way for long.

Being quick at the snap is sometimes your best way to bump-up your chances.

While the need for speed in a RUSH resume is common, the reasons for ordering one in the first place are all over the field. That said, here are three that draw a lot of coverage:

  • The Free-Agent Signing. An old boss moves to a new company and reaches out to a favorite former employee about a potential job. The resume isn’t an introduction, but a formality to move the ball down the field before the opening collapses.

  • The Clock is Ticking … A customer runs across what he or she believes is the perfect job, but the deadline for submitting an application is just days away. In that case, an audible is called for with a special timing pattern from the sidelines.

  • The Coach’s Challenge. The quick turnaround is less a matter of time management than it is of practicing sound fundamentals, putting points on the board early. The win these customers are going for isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.

The RUSH resume deserves its own special page in the playbook. Yet, it’s not a gimmick. When customers call our number (1-866-990-8821) for fast turnaround, we’ll hit the line hard, quick, and with all the right keywords in place. Even better, unlike in football, do-overs (as in “unlimited revisions”) are allowed.

At RP, we know how to act in the endzone because we’ve been there before.
