Make the possibilities clear.

Your resume should reflect both you and the position for which you are applying. Have two resumes:

  • A generic copy reflecting your general skills and
  • A specific copy relating directly to the position for which you are applying.

If you have properly completed your homework on the company to which you are applying, you should have a very good idea of how your skills should be highlighted:

  • Select a focus
  • Have a written description of the job
  • Delete detailed past experiences not relevant to the current position
  • Insert key words relative to the industry
  • Be clear and concise
  • Make sure the resume flows-no gaps in job history
  • Have your resume available to e-mail
  • Avoid gimmicks. Concentrate on skills, knowledge, and ability.
  • Check and recheck for typos, grammar, spelling, date errors, etc.

During the interview you will review your resume. Formulate brief descriptions or lists for the following items:

  • Describe your job
  • What does your company do?
  • What is the environment like?
  • How big is the company? The department?
  • Detail your duties (don't exaggerate)
  • To whom do you report? Title?
  • Inventory your successes (give statistical examples)
  • Concentrate on skills, knowledge, and abilities.
  • Be brief, concise, and accurate.
  • Have your reference list ready. Make certain your contacts have been notified.
  • Do not include personal data or references.
  • Sell only the skills that pertain to the job.
