There are always opportunities for motivated and talented professionals. If you are one of those individuals and work in one of our applicable industries, WE SHOULD KNOW YOU.
Even if you are not currently "in the market," we should know you anyway. This will enable you to keep informed of what opportunities might exist in your field as they become available.
Remember, there is no second chance for a first impression. Your resume is your introduction to a prospective employer.
What a well-written resume should be:
- A marketing flyer that highlights your best skills, qualifications and achievements.
- No longer than two pages.
- Clear example(s) of how you helped your previous employer(s) make money through quantitative andqualitative examples. SEE BELOW for an achievement list worksheet which can be incorporated into your resume.
- An outline for an interview giving you, the candidate, control of the conversation.
- An indicator of your writing and communication skills.
What a resume should NOT be:
• A lengthy job chronology.
• History of the family and world part III.
• Mea culpa
To get your resume web-savvy:
• Use nouns as key searchable words.
• Think in terms of hot buttons throughout the resume.
• Eliminate fancy formatting such as italics and images; scanners will only scramble them.
