Executive recruiters and hiring managers are all too familiar with the look of resume templates and resume-template services, said Barbara Safani, the owner of Career Solvers a New York career-management firm. They are easy to spot by hiring managers, and it is pretty easy to figure out you took a shortcut, she said. That is not exactly the image you want to convey to hiring managers. The last place you want to look like everyone else, she said, is in a job search where you are trying to stand out from the crowd. Templates are easy to spot because many use outdated formats, styles and hackneyed and cliched phrases that convey personal attributes without proving impact, Safani said. They are also readily identifiable because so many people use them. Google, for example, has many different resume templates. But if you are a hiring professional who looks at resumes frequently, you will quickly begin to see that many submitted resumes have the same format, with the same positioning of content, the same graphical embellishments and the same fonts. For example, two career management professionals interviewed for this article pointed to the same Microsoft Word template that displays the persons name in large type, then switches to a tiny, barely legible 8-point type size for the contact information. The persons name will be 36 or 72 points, and their phone number will be microscopically small, which is stupid because most people in (Human Resources) are 40 years old or older and won not be able to read it without glasses, said Shel Horowitz, the author of books on do-it-yourself marketing. People were using it because it was a template Microsoft had, Safani said of the same example. It was obviously a template because you received 40 resumes that looked the same. Even if you are only somebody who filled a job once every 10 years, they could still tell the person was using a template if 40 resumes looked the same.
For Loretta Danielson, we have used a three-line headline. The first line, Human Resources Director, positions her for the level of job she is targeting: the second line communicates the breadth of her experience, from startups to high-growth organizations: and the third line, Positioning HR as a Business Partner for Excellence, is what we refer to as a branding statement, her unique value proposition. One word of caution about headlines—and, in fact, about everything that you include in your resume. Be certain that what you are highlighting matches not only what you have done in the past but also what you want to do in the future. This is extremely important because you want readers to perceive you as a qualified and experienced candidate for the positions you are currently targeting. If you have extensive experience managing compensation and benefits, for example, but you do not want that to be a major part of your next job, do not highlight it with a headline. You can mention it as appropriate in the experience section, but do not make the mistake of drawing attention to something you do not want readers to focus on. Be selective and be strategic.
No matter how many hundreds, or even thousands, of resumes you have reviewed throughout your HR career, writing your own resume is always a challenge. It can be difficult to take a step back and look at your career objectively to identify what makes you uniquely qualified and distinctive from other candidates. Why are people going to remember you? Why will people want to hire you? What is your unique value to a new employer? The answers to those questions and many others should be the foundation upon which you build your resume and brand yourself for new professional opportunities. While there is no formula or single template to use in crafting an HR resume, there are certain guidelines that will help you write, format and design a resume that will showcase your greatest talents, accomplishments and value to a potential new employer. These seven, rules of the resume road, are applicable to all HR professionals, managers and executives.
