If you are switching industries, do not launch into job experience that the hiring manager may not think is relevant. Heifetz suggests adding an accomplishments section right after your opener that makes the bridge between your experience and the job requirements. These are main points you want to get across, the powerful stories you want to tell, she says. It makes the reader sit up straight and say Holy cow, I want to talk to her. Not because of who she is but because of what is she is done. Here is a sample mid-career resume that does this well (source: John Lees, Knockout CV). After the accomplishments section (if you add it), list your employment history and related experience. See below for exactly what to include. Then add any relevant education. Some people want to put their education up top. That might be appropriate in academia but for a business resume, you should highlight your work experience first and save your degrees and certifications for the end. And that ever-popular skills section? Heifetz recommends skipping it all together. If you have not convinced me that you have those skills by the end of the resume, Iam not going to believe it now, she explains. If you have expertise with a specific type of software, for example, include it in the experience section. And if it is a drop-dead requirement for the job, also include it in the summary at the very top.
Help your readers understand the depth and breadth of your experience by providing details about the organizations where you’ve worked. You can cite the number of employees, the number of locations, the total annual company revenue, the specific business or industry, and other details that will give readers a frame of reference. You will notice brief company descriptions on both of the resume samples we are sharing. On Leslies resume, the information is integrated into the short paragraph immediately under each companys name. On Lorettas resume, the information is positioned right next to the company name. No matter where you position the information, it is valuable. Knowing where you have worked helps readers put everything into context and makes your experience and accomplishments all that more impressive. Just as with your headline, be strategic. If you have worked only at very large public companies and now want to move to a small privately held business, the size of those companies might scare off your target employers. Think about your goals and add the details that make you a good fit for the companies, associations and/or other organizations where you want to work.
You know how important keywords are for both human readers and electronic eyes scanning your resume. If you don not include those all-important terms, you may be perceived as unqualified and your resume may be passed over. Do not let that happen to you!. Look for opportunities to introduce keywords throughout your resume. You can create a Core Competencies or Professional Skills Summary at the top, but that is not enough. You want keywords to be prevalent throughout every section of your resume. Look at Leslies resume. When you read her Professional Experience section, you find a wealth of HR keywords in every sentence. What is more, her resume is not loaded with lengthy responsible for statements. Rather, the keywords are seamlessly integrated into all of her achievement bullets so that readers gain clear and compelling evidence of her HR activities, expertise and value. Next, look at Lorettas resume. One of the first things you notice in the Professional Experience section are the bold keywords at the start of each bullet point. This is a very effective strategy both for increasing the keyword density of your resume and for making your resume highly skimmable. Readers immediately gain a sense of your expertise from a quick keyword scan, setting you apart from the competition.
