Is your resume in the “Yes” pile?

Yesterday, as I was reading through a stack of resumes to fill a position for one of my clients, I was disturbed, disgusted… no, the best way to describe it was disappointed in the quality of the resumes submitted.   With all of the information being discussed on news programs and the internet about writing quality resumes I was taken off guard by the number of people who did not take the time to produce a well thought out resume.

I will be meeting with my client next week with the resumes from my “Yes” pile to move forward with initial phone interviews.   What got the resumes in the “Yes” pile you ask?    Just as my last blog entry speaks about “knowing thyself” the individuals in this pile took the time to communicate their skills, competencies, personal characteristic, interests and values.  They did a good job in both their cover letter and resume of showing how the list above ties in with the job description and company.

Your resume is often the first impression a future employer has of you.  As one of your key sales tools, it presents an overview of what you have done in the past and implies what you can do for a potential employer in the future.

Basic parts of a resume:

  • Heading-Name, phone numbers, e-mail address, linked in address.
  • Professional summary– Write a concise statement summarizing experience, areas of expertise, technical or professional skills, traits and any distinctions.
  • Employment History– Company name, years employed and job titles.
  • Responsibilities statements– Summarize information selected from your job description, special assignments and general duties that employers might find of interest.
  • Accomplishment statements-These statements should show your achievements and contributions to an organization.
  • Education– Summarizes your educational background in reverse chronological order.
  • Professional development and training-List additional training or courses that support and are relevant to your job objective.
  • Memberships-Include memberships and offices held in professional associations, boards and community activities.
  • Other categories-If relevant to your objective, list languages, licenses, certifications, etc

The resume is just one of the communication tools in a job seekers toolkit.  In reality, you need a harmonized suite of communication tools to be used throughout your job search.

TCM has power tools in our tool box to assist you in building not only that perfect resume but your other communication documents.
