Your Resume

Your resume is what you make it, and how it is written tells a potential employer a lot about you!

Your resume is your personal marketing tool, sort of like an advertising scheme created to give the reader a sales pitch in which you promote yourself and what you feel your best attributes are. Your resume gives an insight about your train of thought, how you perceive yourself in the past, present, and future job markets, your work experiences, educational background, and what you can bring to the table if you are hired.

For most people, preparing a resume is not the easiest thing to do because resumes are usually written when applying for employment or if it is needed to advance in a current job. This is a cause for concern because what you put on your resume can be the determining factor in whether you get the job you are applying for. More than anything, your resume should be realistic, truthful, and to the point.

Although you want to list your best attributes, your skills, your work history, and why you think you should get the job, you don't want to bore the reader with information that is not relevant to the job you are seeking.

Try to keep your resume under one page if you can, making it short and sweet. Then make every word count.

The goal of a resume is to tell the potential employer that you are the best person for the position you are seeking, giving the reader a strong sense of your educational background, your work experience, and your will and desire to work.

Listed below are areas in your resume that you should give special attention.

  • 1. What is your objective? What do you want to accomplish in your professional life and what are your career goal?
  • 2. What professional experience do you have? What have you done professionally to give you reason to toot your own horn?
  • 3. Where have you worked? List in order the companies, dates, and positions you have held.
  • 4. How much education do you have? List where you went to high school, college, or other institutions of higher education.
  • 5. List specific classes that may make you a good prospect for the job that you are applying for, whether they are on line classes, correspondence courses, or any other classes.
  • 5. What skills do you have? For example, if you are proficient in the use of computers and the most up to date computer programs, it should be stated on your resume. If you are good at coordinating work groups and communicating professionally with the public, as well as with co-workers, it should be put on your resume. If you are good at time management and office operations, it should also be stated, and so on.

Your resume is a short history of your work experience, your education, and a little about your personal history.
