Putting Your Resume on Steroids
The first thing that someone who is reading your resume should see just below your name and contact information is a paragraph or two summarizing your career history, functional and industry experience, and some professional qualities you possess.
Next, list your employer’s name and title with your dates of employment (without months) to the far right. Write a very brief description of what you actually do in your job and then think of three or four accomplishments that you’ve achieved. Accomplishments should be written to describe the situation or problem, what you did the improve or solve it, and how you made a difference in quantifiable terms (percentages, numbers, etc.). This is called a PAR formula (Problem – Action – Result).
Your education and professional development credentials should be at the end of your resume. Your resume should be two pages and not include the antiquated statement, “references available upon request”.
You’ll see that OpenMind Staffing will handle all of the above for a competitive price and produce the interview results you are looking for.
