A resume does NOT get you a job!

A resume DOES contribute greatly to getting that interview where you will WOW! the interviewer/s in a one-on-one setting.

This is why you must understand the importance of developing, regardless of the style you choose, a thorough and comprehensive document.

 

THE PURPOSE

THEREFORE, YOU NEED TO:

  • Tailor your résumé to the company and position offered
  • Gear your résumé toward a specific goal
  • Make your résumé original, truthful, appealing, focused
  • Be willing to prepare multiple versions
  • Design your résumé to grab reader’s attention in the top third of the page during the first 15 seconds of its review


Now that you have the basics down, travel over to the link list and gain even more insight into the development of a solid marketing tool for yourself.
