Your Resume is Your Story – Figure it Out!


Everyone needs to work. Pay the bills. Get through the days, weeks, years. So it’s tempting to whip up your resume in a frenzy so you can pump out lots and lots of copies.

Here’s the thing: a well thought-out resume is obvious. A hastily thrown together one is really obvious. The best remedy? Follow these steps to ensure a successful resume that gets you great new opportunities.

  1. What do you want?

Do you have a clear picture of where you want to be in 5 or 10 years? If you don’t, sit down and get it sorted out. If you can’t clearly articulate your career goals – how can you write a succinct resume?

  1. Clean sweep

Where possible try and get any information about jobs etc. that does not relate to your present career path, entirely off your resume. Think of your resume like a picture puzzle. Any pieces that don’t fit will confuse or distort the overall picture.

  1. Find the right words and make the format outstanding

Write it clearly. Without a lot of unnecessary phrasing. And using power words that position you in a dynamic, relevant way. Then – design it. If you can’t, get an innovative resume service to do it for you. Don’t let a boring looking resume be the cause of a lack of interview opportunities.
