Stand Out From The Crowd
I began helping people with their resumes in the late 1990’s and co-built SkilledResumes.com in 2008. My name is Christopher Zourides, CPRW. Recognized as one of the best Executive Sales, Business Development, Marketing, Operations, Technology, Banking, and Finance Résumé Writers in the country, I also very much enjoy helping Student, Entry and Mid-Career clients dramatically increase their job search success rate.
A resume’s sole purpose is to attract the attention of prospective employers and recruiters. In addition to strong content accurately reflecting one’s career history and added value, the resume needs to be key-word rich for Search Engine Optimization, and the layout needs to be such that the reader can easily recognize accomplishments without having to strain and find them (most resumes do not attract attention). My clients have a marked advantage in getting recruiters and Hiring Managers to contact them.

What Distinguishes Me as a Résumé Writer
The Résumé Critique
I OFFER THIS SERVICE PRIMARILY TO DISPLAY MY LEVEL OF SKILL AS ONE OF ONLY A HANDFUL OF RÉSUMÉ WRITERS able to demonstrate this level of expertise. I review your current resume in great detail, almost line by line. WE CONSULT FOR NINETY (90) MINUTES; via phone or in-person. I identify your resume’s strengths and weaknesses, point out where it does convey what you’re trying to say, and more importantly where it does not. We discuss strategy, structure, core competencies, and more.
The Phone Interview
The majority of my clients prefer the phone interview instead of completing my comprehensive Questionnaire. I prefer this as well because although my Questionnaire is very thorough, it doesn’t allow for deeper behavioral based questions based on impromptu responses to prior questions as we are speaking. Also, before conducting the 30-60 minute phone interview, I spend a good deal of time evaluating/analyzing my clients’ existing resumes to come up with very specific, targeted questions.
The Final Product
The deliverable is a custom written, fact-based, achievement-oriented, AND KEY WORD RICH optimized resume FOR THE HUMAN AND ELECTRONIC EYE (Applicant Tracking Systems). We make a strong case for why a company should interview you. And we make sure that you go into the interview with an incredibly strong representation of who you are and the added value you bring to an organization.

Krissy F. (Georgia – Marketing Strategist & Digital Advertising)
“I am a little late in writing this, but that is because I have been very busy working. I had been on the job hunt for 11 months when I wrote and had my resume critiqued. Lots of great feedback and ultimately I purchased the resume writer option. The best money I have ever spent. Within 4 weeks I was deciding between three offers. I also used the resources and files of information on job interviewing and searches. 53 weeks after being laid off I started work again. I have recommended you and your site to others who have been out of work. Thank you again for your services and resources.”
Andrew G. (California – Store Manager)
“Hi Chris, I received a job offer from a company about two weeks ago….I cannot thank you enough for your services as it definitely increased the number of job interviews I received (from none to four different companies) and several more requests on LinkedIn.”
Derek Y. (Texas – Information Technology Leader)
“Chris is exceptional at discerning professional skills and personal attributes and then articulates them as a professional resume writer. Process-driven, He takes the time to understand the unique skills that his clients possess. This reflects in the work that Chris presents to them for their approval. It works. Chris should be hired by any business professional that wants to have their abilities accurately represented on their resume. I’ve recommended him to colleagues several times.”
Doug D. (New York – Senior HR & Business Outplacement Professional)
“I hired Christopher to write my resume two years ago. I work in healthcare and had a resume that typically looked like most nurses would. ‘education, position held, certifications etc’ very basic. Christopher took the time to interview me in depth about my accomplishments and positions before writing my resume. When he returned it to me I was astounded. I would never have believed that the person he wrote about was me. I immediately began receiving job offers I never thought possible and one of the directors had even asked where I had the resume done because they had not seen such an awesome portrail of an applicant in a long time. I highly recommend Christopher for any writing.”
Richard C. (North Carolina – Staff Development Manager, RN)
“Amazing Experience – Chris was highly recommended to me by a previous client. He went above and beyond to make the time necessary to understand my unique situation. More importantly, he customized my resume to reflect my skill set in a way to achieve a very specific objective. Finally, I strongly recommend Chris and I’m confident he will exceed your expectations.”
Curt E. (Florida – Director, Private Bank)
“After 19 years with the same company you lose track of what’s been achieved. Chris used his skills brilliantly to work with me to capture and professionally present, the key achievements from the last two decades. I thought calling from NZ to Florida and other states that Chris was in as we worked together might create an issue. Chris made himself available at times convenient working around the time zones and the family responsibilities. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a professional resume.”
