Building A Strong Resume Even Before You Start Writing:
We know what it takes to write a winning resume that will help you to land that desired job. You have to have an effective framework for your resume before you even start writing. Although every job applicant knows the importance of a resume, sometimes they do not take enough time to think about what they write before they actually write it on paper. This may sound trivial, but it is very important. Missed or overlooked details are potentially harmful to your overall job application. Here are a few things to consider before writing your resume:
What is Your Personal Brand?
Resume Summary Statement. When applying for a job, the applicants are basically 'selling' themselves and their skills to the prospective employers or clients. As such, an applicant needs to know their personal brand. Do you know what your personal brand is? This is one crucial thing to know when building a top notch resume. What do you do best (or even better than others)? Think of the things that motivate you: your purpose, vision, values and passions. These will help you define what your personal brand is. Once you have done that, you should think about how you can effectively summarize your brand to include in your resume. This will be your resume statement that is usually at the top of the first page of your resume. These few lines are your very first impression, and they should summarize what makes you the ideal person for the job. Try to stay away from generic expressions, and dedicate time to writing a thoughtful and professional description of brand 'you'.
Know Your Target 'Audience': Tailor Your Resume.
When applying for a job, the first thing that you should do before writing your resume, is research. Do some research on the company that you are applying for to get a sense of their culture, and to get a good idea of what they do. If you are able to find more information on the particular job position that you are applying for this can be an added advantage. Research helps because it helps you to identify the company's language and even certain key values or words that they associate themselves with. Once you are able to identify these things, incorporate them within your resume and cover letter. Speak the company's language. This method can be used within the summary statement and also in the descriptors that you give of your previous job roles. Remember not to be too generic, but give your resume a personalized and identifiable tone.
