FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., December 22, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Do not be discouraged by the hardships and disappointments of 2020. It wasn't just a rough year for South Florida. It was a rough year for the entire country. Nonetheless, the unemployment rate is declining. For November 2020, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an unemployment rate of 6.7 percent. The unemployment rate has decreased for six consecutive months. Florida's November 2020 unemployment rate was slightly lower than the national average at 6.4%. Expert Business & Professional Services, Inc. discusses hiring a professional resume writer for the New Year.
New Year, New Opportunities
While the unemployed do outnumber job openings by 2-to-1, a November 2020 South Florida Sun Sentinel article reported on new opportunities created during the pandemic. Companies not headquartered in South Florida are eyeing the region as an alternative to states that are locked down. Because of this, new employment in the areas of healthcare, pharmaceutical devices, technology, construction, financial services, and restaurants are anticipated by analysts.
Intentions for 2021
Do not be afraid of change. Embrace the possibilities and set intentions for 2021. Consider the industries that are succeeding or projected to expand. Staying in the same role, industry, or general field might not be the best option. Everyone has skills that transfer to other kinds of jobs or different industries.
Broaden job options by expanding the geography for one's job search. Someone who has worked at jobs in Plantation might cast a wider net and try for jobs elsewhere in the region: Weston, Pompano Beach, Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, etc.
A Fresh Start for a Re-Brand
Professional resume and LinkedIn profile writers aren't just writers. They are marketing professionals. They know how to craft a brand and its message. In the realm of resume writing, the brand is the job candidate and what they offer. They are familiar with the local job market (in this case, South Florida jobs), know more about major employers in the region, and have up-to-date information about hiring trends and processes. They write resumes that get noticed.
Branding oneself can be tricky to do, which is why it pays to hire a professional resume and LinkedIn profile writer. This person can see a job candidate's history and potential and use that information to strategically position that person's resume for the job search.
Professional Writing Skills
Strong writing skills cannot be underestimated. Job candidates should appreciate copy that sings because hiring managers will, too. The best resumes are concise, results-oriented, and tailored for the desired job/field. They also contain words recognized by Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), not known to Average Joe but known by a professional resume writer.
