Emem Tomislava. resume. October 19th , 2017.
As most of you know, Im a strong advocate of everyone having an updated resume and bio. It prevents you from being placed in the embarrassing situation of being asked to shoot me over your current resume and having to say you dont have one or lying and scrambling to create something. The bonus of this discipline is you are forced to reevaluate your job and career on a regular basis as well as update the documents format to meet ever-changing standards. When it comes to biographies, everyone should have three versions very short (often preferred by media outlets), mid-size (good as an introduction when youre an invited speaker), and finally a full pager that gives many of the current facts and delves a little into how you got to where you are now and what your contributions have been.
One major turnoff for hiring managers is to see extremely dense paragraphs on a resume. If you have paragraphs that are longer than four to five lines, theres a good chance that you wont hear anything back from the company. Looking through resumes is already a tedious job for hiring managers. It certainly doesnt need to be complicated with long explanations.
4. If it looks like a laundry list of tasks for every job youve held, your resume might be old school. Resumes today are meant to be a marketing document not a historical record. While including information about work history, think strategically about what is most relevant to the job target. Not every detail needs to be included! Also, instead of a list of tasks or duties, share short accomplishment stories which prove value not only skill.
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.
