If you are not getting a reasonable amount of interviews or job offers
(especially if you have the qualifications) after sending out countless resumés, there is a reason for it.
9 times out of 10 times the problem is either your resumé (what
you are sending out) and / or your delivery process (how you are sending it.)
Both of these are easy fixes. The biggest problem is KNOWING WHAT THE
I talk to people all the time who tell me "Na, that's not the problem
in my case, my resumé is fine." My question is: "Well, if it's FINE, why are you not working?"
You might think your resumé or CV is FINE as is, but the
truth of the matter is most folks work better than they write. And this probably includes you.
There are TWO TYPES types of resumés:
- Those that work and get interviews and job offers
- Those that don't work (regardless of who wrote it or how FINE you think
The proof is always in the pudding: If you are not getting any action
in your offshore oil rig job search, stop what you are doing
and get a PROFESSIONAL CRITIQUE.
Here's a recent letter addressing a resumé I critiqued:
Thank you Ron,
I appreciate your critique of my resumé. After I read it, I immediately
saw what you are talking about concerning how hard it is to write a resumé you can trust to get the
I have a degree in education, journalism and English composition. You would
think for me writing a resumé would be a breeze. Boy was I wrong! Your principle highlights were right
on the mark.
- Objective not specific
- Unfriendly format
- Too much rambling
- Lacking the essential element of "SELL"
I rewrote my resumé following your recommendations. The difference in
responses was immediate and nothing short of spectacular. It resulted in my getting several nice offers to
choose from when before I was getting zip.
I'm now working in the Gulf of Mexico for Transocean on a new semi submersible
as a storekeeper. We are working 14 on, 14 off and it looks as if the rig will be going to Brazil later on
Again, I want to thank you kindly for you help. Your critique made the difference.

Holy smokes you've already been the best 45 dollars I've ever spent. How
do I send it back through for another critique (can I do that)?
Is this Mr. Edwards or an employee? It doesn't really matter who is answering
my emails because what I'm about to say speaks volumes no matter who it is. I have subscriptions to two
other resumé building websites and have spent countless hours in the local career link trying to accomplish
what you have helped me accomplish in just a few emails.
I am speaking from the bottom of my heart when I say that this is the best $75
dollars I have ever spent. If....No....WHEN I finally get that special reply asking
me to show up for an interview I will have a surprise for whoever you are. Thank you very much
for all your help whether you're the Cpt. or not!
Money is tight these days and no doubt you want to save whenever you can,
and understandably so. You might be trying to save money by writing your own resumé or getting a friend / family
member to write it or to help you write it. You might have purchased (or considering purchasing) resumé writing
software, thinking this is the answer. In the long run most of these choices will not turn out to be very productive.
It makes NO SENSE WHAT SO EVER to send out a resumé that
is just going to get trashed because it is poorly written. Most people work better than they
write and are not very good at writing about their abilities, experiences and qualifications in a way that will
get them an offshore oil rig job.
You can put your time, your energy and / or your money into writing
what you consider to be the "perfect resumé" and still have it bomb big time.
You will not get a second chance to make a good first impression. Get it right
the first time and spend your energy working and not searching.
A professional critique will:
- Provide an honest, unbiased and independent appraisal of your current resumé
- It will show you, step by step, how to fix what's wrong. If your resumé
has problems, I'll tell you exactly what they are and what you can do to correct them.
"Better to be SAFE than SORRY!"
If you are using an ineffective resumé in your offshore oil rig
job search, more than likely no one is going to tell you about it. If you are not not getting the action you think
you should be getting, order your professional resumé analysis TODAY for a comprehensive, in depth critique
that will cover the following 11 points:
- Cover Letter Effectiveness (or lack of)
- Format and Organization
- Details and Balance
- Language / Spelling / Grammar / Content
- What You Send / How you send it
- AND the most important element of all, the element of SELL
A professional critique will make a HUGE difference in your offshore
oil rig job search
