5 Tips for Rethinking Your Resume
- Analyze and use key words from job descriptions to ensure your résumé matches employer requirements.
- Highlight accomplishments: increasing production, opening new office, improving efficiency, cutting costs.
- Most employers look for a pattern of upward movement and increased responsibility in your career.
- What sets you apart is the accomplishments derived from your previous responsibilities. Not tasks. Focus on accomplishments.
- When reviewing your résumé, a prospective employer wants to know what you did somewhere else that you can also do for them.
