Resume Help - Resume Preparation

The key to your resume preparation is knowing what your resume is for. Your resume is for you to sell yourself to gain an invitation to an interview. Nothing more, nothing less.

You need to think about who will be reading it. Often these people are filtering hundreds of resumes. So it has to be clear, concise and relevant as you have 15-30 seconds to avoid being pushed aside. Depending on your profession, you should aim to sell your potential in 1-3 pages.

When you write your resume, it is not about what you did in your holidays, it's about a concise list of things you have experience in.

What is key when writing a resume is the wording. Language is everything - positive action words should communicate to the reader what you have done. Write clearly using verbs and nouns whilst avoiding adverbs.

The format of your resume depends on the job. A fresh graduate or research position would focus heavily on education. When experience is king then the focus will be on your previous work history including financial and non-financial achievements.

Writing a resume and getting it just right is difficult. You are attempting to condense your worldly value into a short description. Each statement you make should be a selling statement that addresses a particular attribute or experience. The skill comes when selling but not wearing the reader out and providing enough information in their train of thought to press the Yes button.

Like a book, a resume isn't perfect the first, second or third time. So, take your time in writing down all your strengths and examples of how you improved, changed or made an impact.

Alternatively, you can engage the services of a professional resume writing company to help you write your resume for you. In the scheme of things, it is a small price to pay when your livelihood depends on it.
