DOES YOUR RESUME MEAN BUSINESS?
If a job is a business contract, your resume has to pitch, NOT document.
It's not about documenting all the tasks you've ever performed, it's about demonstrating PROOF of your exceptional ROI.
It's not about how much you can stuff the page with, it's about what - and how much - the reader catches.
It's not about using stiff, formal language encrusted with jargon to sound impressive. It's about making it effortless to read.
Think about this - the only point of reference your prospective employer has of you is your resume, at least at first. So that resume has to be an accurate snapshot of you. Search is still very much textual for the simple reason that it's far easier to scan words than a video. With all our rich media now, everything still rises and falls on the written word.
More people tend to undersell instead of oversell themselves.
While exaggeration and misrepresentation is a genuine concern hiring managers and recruiters have, the truth is that the great majority of jobseekers tend to undersell themselves – by not accurately presenting themselves on paper. Result? They shortchange themselves.
You CAN market yourself persuasively without having to pretend to be someone else.
The most effective resume captures exactly what you’ve done and what value you offer – nothing more, nothing less. The confidence that comes with the ability to project your real self is of immeasurable value – especially when you get to the interview table.
A poorly written resume can cost you easily $100,000 and more over a lifetime in missed opportunities for career progression. Ultimately, it will cost you something infinitely more valuable - the freedom to pursue your career aspirations.
Do any of these sound like you?
“The thought of putting down 15, 20 years of experience down on paper is overwhelming. Where do I even start?”
“I don’t do so well expressing myself on paper but once I get my foot in the door, I have no problem pitching.”
“I’ve been sending out job applications…but I don’t hear back much.”
“The last time I wrote a resume was for my first job. I’ve never needed another…till now.”
“I just can’t seem to find the right language to capture my strengths and achievements.”
“I’m getting interviews…for all the wrong jobs!”
