  • 2nd Focus Resume

    $50.00$295.00
    2nd Focus Resume for entry through executive-level professionals. Useful for creating a hyper-targeted alternative version of your Resume specifically geared toward a particular job title or industry specialization. Great for job seekers with two or more areas of emphasis. Service is reserved for returning customers of JobStars USA.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    You're an HR Generalist, but you're interested in jobs specializing in Benefits and Compensation within HR. You'll need one version geared for HR Generalist roles and one version geared specifically for Benefits Specialist roles.
    When building multiple targeted Resumes for different focuses the main changes take place in the opening "career profile" section of the document. This is the area which communicates the high level context and focus. Whereas, the body of your Resume (individual job descriptions) may generally remain unchanged on each version. In certain cases, it also makes sense to alter the body to achieve optimum relevancy.
    2nd Focus draft is ready within five (5) business days after the intake phone call. Adding RUSH cuts the turnaround time to three (3) business days. Unlimited revisions for 30 days included for edits and questions after first draft development. Final versions of your Resume are prepared in MS Word and PDF format.
    Rates vary by seniority level and timeline. Please see the drop down menus below FAQ (on this page) to make your selections.
