Critical Information You Need to Supply & Information You Need:
Your resume needs an Objective. An Objective is very important and always goes at the top. The Objective must be thought out very carefully. The Objective is the only place on the resume where you can talk about the future. We work together on this.
I will list your strengths based what you tell me and what I see in the documentation you provide me.
There are five critical keywords that must be on every resume, in one form or another. I integrate these into your strengths to make sure that they are on the resume. The five critical keywords often show up in other sections as well.
3) Accomplishments & Quantifiable Accomplishments:
Accomplishments and Quantifiable Accomplishments go here. The hiring manager wants to see what you can do for him. An example might make this clearer. You might say: "Provide guidance and leadership for associates to keep them motivated." How much better it would be if you could say "Provide guidance and leadership for 17 associates to keep them motivated which increased productivity 17% in the third quarter." The second statement is a Quantitative Accomplishment while the first is not.
Now, we NEVER lie on a resume. But no one will fault you for your best estimate or your best recollection. Go thru your resume and see if you can add numbers to your accomplishments. I need about 6 good ones. But I will work with what I can get.
4) Career History:
Provide a simple list of your employment for the last 10 or 12 years. Company name, address, your job title, start date and end date. Provide a short description of your duties.
Explanation: Accomplishments have been listed above and need not be listed again here. Any employment over 10 to 12 years is irrelevant. Life and technology have past it by. No one carried a cell phone or watched a flat screen TV or used a GPS. You didn?t ?Friend? anybody on Facebook or have a LinkedIn account 10 or 12 years ago.
List all schooling and training
List Important Certifications
6) Miscellaneous (May or May Not Be Used)
List all relevant licenses and permits
List hobbies and interests that you think will add to your resume.
List relevant volunteer work
