Emphasize your strengths on your resume, in your cover letters and in your interviews. It may sound obvious, but you would be surprised how many people simply list everything they have ever done, convey your passion and link your strengths to measurable results. Employers and interviewers love concrete data. Marcus Buckingham. It doesnt matter how smart we are until it is properly indicated in our resume, our skill will go unnoticed because the interviewer will always first see our resume, not us. Thus, the probability of being selected in an interview largely depends on our resumes.
Most hiring managers are looking for your resume to assure them that you are more than likely to be a success. Because hiring a new employee is a time consuming and costly endeavor, they are looking for candidates that will be a "low risk" hire and hopefully as close to a "sure thing" as they can find. By taking the time to customize your resume to their specific job requirements, and then by creatively and enthusiastically selling yourself to them on how the skills and experience you have match up perfectly with what they are looking for you, you will convince them of this.
Its shocking to me that the majority of job hunters are still using an objective. First, let me say STOP THAT! Next, let me tell you why: An objective is all about what you want. Truthfully, hiring managers couldnt care less. Your objective statement means absolutely NOTHING to them. It does not make you stand out, it does not position you as a leader, and frankly, instead of getting you somewhere, firmly plants you three steps back. However, a personal branding statement, followed by a career summary that is strategically formulated around your unique promise of value, is the golden ticket. If that was Greek to youand you have no idea what Im talking abouthold on, its about to get better.
