Clarissa Bancroft. resume. November 08th , 2017.
The purpose of the resume is to get you an interview, not necessarily to get you the job. Would you buy a car without a test drive? Companies want to test drive you too. Your resume should tell a story, from beginning to end and answer these questions:
- Tests or assessments These are good to give you more information about yourself. These assessments will give you insight on things like interests, strengths and work orientation. If you pursue these, you have to know up front that they alone will not give you the One Big Answer about your future career. In fact, they may in many ways tell you things you already know about yourself. So why take them? Because it will give you a starting place, it will help distill down information about you that you need to have as you embark on making a decision about a career. With any research project, you collect data from numerous sources to help create the conclusion. Among but not limited on assessments: Meyers-Briggs, Strength Finder, VISTA cards, Color Q and Holland. Many of these are in books and online.
You've probably heard that phrase a million times. All through high school and college, "it'll look good on your resume" was a bonus to volunteer work, involvement in a sport, or leadership in an organization.
If a resume is unique and different from all the other resumes coming in for the same post, it becomes easy for the interviewer to select from the other thousands of resumes. It gives the interviewer confidence that the individual is good at his/her work, that he/she has good communication skills and a good command over English. A good resume makes the interviewer believe that the individual is dedicated towards his/her work.
