Resume Writing Services Leader Awarded Food and Drug Administration Contract Deal

Employment BOOST Helps Government Employees Advance Their Careers

TROY, MI--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2016) - Ask any job recruiter and they'll tell you that the graveyard of forgotten resumes is vast. Millions of paper and digital resumes are only reviewed for an average of five to seven seconds.

Add to that the competitive nature of today's restricted job market -- on average some 250 people apply for any single opening and only 2 percent of applicants ever land an interview -- it's clear that job seekers' resumes need to be expertly produced, highly focused products. Anything less and applicants may as well not apply.

That's especially true when it comes to internal career advancement. Employees must often resubmit their resumes to other departments within their organization or its related branches. These positions are unlikely to be widely publicized and require an even more granular understanding of what the new job entails.

That's why Employment BOOST, a leading resume writing and editing company, has partnered with hundreds of brands to offer its resume services and coaching expertise to employees that wish to advance within their company, so they can successfully land those highly lucrative and competitive jobs.

Earlier this season, Employment BOOST added the Food and Drug Administration to its roster of clients. The FDA is a federal agency with more than 14,000 recruits, and many of its employees seek to advance their careers throughout the 110-year-old organization, as well as other areas of government service. Employees with these career ambitions will now be able to take their resume writing skills to the next level.

"It was an honor and privilege to offer our resume writing services and coaching to eager employees within the FDA," said James Phillip, Employment BOOST's founder and CEO. "As it relates to the day-to-day lives of everyday citizens, the FDA is among the most important federal agencies, charged with protecting the nation's food safety, prescription drugs, blood transfusions, radiation emitting devices, and a host of other critical responsibilities. It's encouraging to think that so many of the agency's current employees are eager to remain within this unique public service organization, or further their careers throughout the public sector."

Employment BOOST offered the FDA a full-scale workshop, including a federal resume writing seminar, one-on-one resume development, and interviewing tips for job applicants. The professional resume writing team provided the organization with detailed information on how to apply for federal jobs, and how to ensure that their resumes stand out among the rest.

"In addition to our attention to detail and multi-draft philosophy, Employment BOOST also believes in the importance of speed and efficiency," Joanne Munekawa, Career Services Manager added. "We turn around most resumes in as soon as three business days, which is something I'm sure government entities appreciate. I'm confident FDA employees willing to advance their careers internally or throughout the federal government will benefit from our resume writing workshop."

After the workshop, Employment BOOST received an average rating of 4.83 out of 5 across thirteen categories on the workshop participant questionnaire, continuing its proven record as an industry leader in career services.

Employment BOOST credits its unique success to its unparalleled access to more than a dozen company-owned recruiting firms, human resource consultants, outplacement services, and career management professionals. With access to top national executive search consultants, the company's professional resume writers receive the inside track to what hiring managers in both the public and private sector seek.
