Kelly's Resume/Career Quick Tip of the Week
Your resume should focus on using different words and don’t be redundant with bullet points. A resume isn’t just about listing titles and dates of employment; it’s a marketing tool for the most important product in the world, you! It’s a chance to highlight you can write effectively and showcase your accomplishments. A poorly written resume can get you knocked down or off the interview list. Use action words such as led, managed, oversaw, supervised and developed, created, authored, conceptualized in your bullet points. Don’t use the same bullet points for each position. Why is this important? It shows creativity, effort, effective communications skills and that you ARE management material. The hiring authority is already grading you based on the resume, send a quality product. For example, if your position will require writing memo’s and policy, using the same words over and over may cost you getting an interview. Using multiple impact words and accomplishments positions you much stronger and can set you apart from the other candidates. Avoid stale and incorporate some zing!
