The new year is around the corner and maybe you're looking for a better job. Maybe you are looking for your first job? Maybe you're looking for your dream job. I don't pretend to know your situation, so I won't try. But, what I do know is that every professional needs to have an amazing resume. No, I'm not talking about the prettiest, graphics heavy resume on the planet, but a clear, concise, and powerful resume that will get you near the top of any job opening.
Writing a powerful resume is not difficult, so don't lose heart. Grab a pencil and listen to the podcast episode so that you are equipped for the task. We cover the basics of a solid resume and even a few bonus tips that you probably won't find out there on the Google. The most important thing to remember is that you give them what they want at a minimum. If they want underwater basket weaving certification, and you have it, then it better darn well be on your resume! Tell them what they want to hear, literally!
In today's world, you don't need an objective statement. I mean, what is an objective statement anyway? It's like a bad corporate mission statement that no one reads or cares about. In other words, don't waste space on your precious job seeking document just because you think you need to. Instead, take the time to actually put facts and numbers with your information. You improved processes? How?! You sped up production? Oh really? How did you do it? How much faster is it? Be very specific and you will stand out!
If you need a book on resume writing, I've provided a few links for you here. Good luck out there!
