If you are new to Canada or need to refresh your resume to meet local expectations, Dezines can assist. Getting your resume ‘Canada ready’ is more intensive than a simple re-edit or adding recent achievements. The resume writing process is part science and part art, a complex tapestry of skills, achievements, and compelling narrative which illustrates outcomes achieved due to your involvement. Having the correct resume format is essential, but don’t forget that keywords, tone, flow, and substance are equally important.
If it all sounds a bit overwhelming and you’re not sure where to start, we’re here to help.
