Resumes are the vision into your future. A resume must hold the reader captive for at least 3 seconds at first glance and then once captured, for several minutes to tell a whole relatable business story. What to say, what not to say, this is your choice, but how it is interpreted may surprise you.
How important is it to tell your story? Ask those who have your dream job with your dream company and ask how they got started. This is what I think can work for you.
Set yourself apart by creating a strong but succinct introductory description of your experience, bullet points are not always necessary here. Describe your solid record of success. If you have had leadership roles with associates and/or projects, then demonstrate that information in the job categories. If your education is relevant to your career, then let the reader know. If you have a specific skill-set that is either technical or organizational, then let us know. Professionally and concisely, arrange your resume, remember, this is marketing 101. If you had any affect on the bottom line either perceptually or quantitatively, tell us. Finally, show your commitment to your future in your summarization of the past and focus on your measurable results. Since it is difficult for most of us to effectively write about our accomplishments, then seek professional help to assist you with this most important endeavor, because this is your future.
