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.
I have noticed on Etsy, and some other sites, they sell formats that are pretty to look at, but I sometimes find that it can be hard to extract the right information from them, she says. It is a delicate balance between finding something that you think looks good, but that represents the right information. I definitely err on the side of fewer bells and whistles and really having the experience stand out. While many of these template sites include guidance on the content, not just the design, Konstant suggests seeking guidance offline. Ask people who actually do the kind of work that you want to do to take a look at (your resume) and see what is missing, she says. (That way) you can make sure that your resume really speaks to the kind of jobs that you are looking for. Before you run off and find your mentor, you can at least start by using the following template sites. One note: Beware of many sites offering free or low-cost templates. Some of them will automatically subscribe you to their services after 14 days, and charge you fees as high as $25 a month. If there is no pricing info available on a site, that should be a red flag.
The resume: there are so many conflicting recommendations out there. Should you keep it to one page? Do you put a summary up top? Do you include personal interests and volunteer gigs? This may be your best chance to make a good first impression, so you’ve got to get it right. There is nothing quick or easy about crafting an effective resume, says Jane Heifetz, a resume expert and founder of Right Resumes. Do not think you are going to sit down and hammer it out in an hour. You have to think carefully about what to say and how to say it so the hiring manager thinks, this person can do what I need done, she says. After all, it is more than a resume : it is a marketing document, says John Lees, a UK-based career strategist and author of Knockout CV. Heifetz agrees: The hiring manager is the buyer, you are the product, and you need to give him a reason to buy. Here is how to write a resume that will be sure to win attention.
