**Resume Tips Alert**
Updated: Sep 9, 2020
I was recently on a “Job Hunting During a Pandemic” panel sharing tips on resumes and interviewing based on my experience of reviewing thousands of resumes and conducting hundreds of interviews over my career. So, I thought I’d share some tips directly with you.
Let’s start with 3 Resume Tips:
Make sure your resume is customized for each position you are applying for – it matters!
Review the job description/role requirements and make sure you use applicable key words on your resume – especially important as many companies use software that looks for these key words among other things.
2. Tell Your Story
Your resume shouldn’t be a bulleted list of your job description.
Make sure it highlights who you are professionally – what were your significant accomplishments and contributions in your organization / volunteer position(s) / associations / in school (as applicable)… what and how much did you change/improve/grow/save/optimize/streamline, etc.?
3. Translate Your Role(s)
Be sure to show how competencies gained from your previous experience can translate into the role you are applying for.
This is especially important when you haven’t specifically worked in the field/position you are applying for!
