Rethinking Your Resume

 By Graham Caulfield LinkedIn, Twitter, and World Wide Web

  • Unless specifically requested, don’t include letters of recommendation or references with your résumé. That comes later.
  • Not a good idea to include outdated software programs, or non-relevant computer skills, on your résumé … makes you appear out of touch.
  • Don’t provide a blow-by-blow account of every single thing you ever did in your résumé. Explain relevant accomplishments. Accomplishments rule.
  • Use a headline on your résumé that reflects your suitability for each position to which you apply.
  • If a previous employer is not well known, be sure to add a short description: size, number of employees, annual revenue, web address etc.
