What does a great pair of boots have to do with resume writing and job searches?

Whenever I am having an “off” day or am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed, I can count on my trusty pair of cowboy boots to pick me up and help me feel better. I slip on my boots and feel like I can tackle almost anything.

Do you have an article of clothing that makes you feel more confident? A favorite pair of jeans or slacks, shirt or blouse, a necktie, jacket or scarf? Or maybe a watch, bracelet or eyeglasses that make you feel like you are on top of the world as soon as you put it on. Although clothing does not make the person, it can impact the way he or she feels about himself.

Just like my boots, clothing can make you feel more confident. Choose pieces that are conservative yet inspire you to feel your best. According to a recent article in Forbes magazine, the top three traits employers are looking for in new hires are – professionalism (86%), high-energy (78%) and confidence (61%).

Another piece in the confidence puzzle is your resume. Are you confident that it is presenting you as a top candidate for the job you are seeking? Are you reluctant to seek out help or advice? A professional resume writing service can help you regain your confidence and take charge of your job search.
