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.
Several months into her previous job, Claire Smith realized that she needed a change. The job, the industry, and the institution were not the right fit for me. It just was not where I wanted to be in my career, she explains. She started to look at job descriptions, honed in on positions or organizations that were interesting to her, then decided to work with a professional resume writer. I tried to do a little changing and reshaping on my own at first but it did not feel all that different from where I began, she says. Working with someone else helped her see that the resume was not about explaining what she done in her career but why she was the best person for a particular job. Claire started with one resume and then tailored it to each position. You have the same raw materials — the accomplishments, the skills, the results you achieved over time — but you have to pick and choose to shape those things into a different narrative, Claire says. The summary, which on her resume consisted of three bullet points, was the element she tweaked the most. For example, when she applied to be an editor, the first bullet point read: Versatile writer and editor committed to speaking directly to readers needs. But when she applied for a marketing position, she tweaked it to emphasize her ability to recruit customers and be a brand champion: Innovative brand champion and customer recruiter in marketing, product development, and communications. Then, before launching into a chronological list of her jobs, she highlighted, selected accomplishments related to each point in her summary. For example, under writer and editor, she included three achievements, including this one: Based on customer data and email performance metrics, wrote new email series to provide prospective students with more targeted information about Simmons and to convert more of them to applicants. Improved performance over past emails producing average open rates of more than 20%. Claire equates collaborating with a resume professional to working with a personal trainer. She felt challenged to keep rewriting and improving. And the hard work paid off. She recently landed a full-time job, which she starts next month.
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.
