Getting your resume prepared for a job search can be a daunting and difficult task for most.
You have probably been instructed to keep it to one page and make it easy to read.
Well, the game has changed and we are busting the resume MYTH.
Most HR professionals and recruiters will pass on you based on your resume even if you think you are a perfect candidate for the job. Why? – Because they don’t see successes spelled out. You have written a job description and not a story about your successes.
Your resume should tell your story of accomplishments, – period. It should not read like a boring job description.
You may be a very accomplished candidate who cannot possibly put your story on one page. That’s OK, multiple pages is fine as long as there is real detail about your career successes.
Here are 4 areas to focus on that will set you apart from the “job description” resumes that your competition is putting together:
1) Your resume should include the company names with detail describing what they produce and who they sell to. Don’t assume the reader knows anything about the companies you have worked for because in most cases, they won’t and they will not spend the time researching it.
2) List your accomplishments. (Express sales successes in $$ or %. What doors have you opened for your employer? List improvements you made in production, quality, or delivery.) Yes – BRAG! This is the only time that bragging about yourself is acceptable.
3) Make it consistent. Headings, pages, borders, font and spaces should all look the same so the reader can easily and quickly go through the resume.
4) Your resume should show your most recent employer at the top and progress down the page(s) to your education.
Its that easy.
Our experience in reading 1000’s of resumes tells us that when we see a resume with detail about a person’s accomplishments and company, we get excited and can’t wait to talk to that candidate.
