You might be surprised to find out which words you used to begin writing your resume and why.
It’s not a question of if you’ll be successful in the job hunt but when.
The process of starting your resume is often described as an ‘initial step’ which begins with a quick phone call and a Google Hangout, with you getting to know each other and getting feedback on your writing and grammar.
That’s where you can ask for more information or a better understanding of your skills.
“You can’t start with a resume that says you’re a good writer,” said Amanda Grosz, a resume consultant and author of The Resume Workout.
“You need to know the basics of writing a resume.
And if I can show that I have a good understanding of what I’m looking for in a person, I feel like I have an advantage in the interview process.””
I find that I’ve got better writing ability when I have more information.
And if I can show that I have a good understanding of what I’m looking for in a person, I feel like I have an advantage in the interview process.”
While you can get a resume done on the phone or by mail, you can’t write it on paper.
The best way to start is by looking at a resume and thinking, ‘what is the information I need?’
If I get an email from someone and they want to hire me, then that’s a good sign,” she added. “
If I have the resume in front of me, I can look at it and I’ll know I need to take action to make it better.”
“If I get an email from someone and they want to hire me, then that’s a good sign,” she added.
“So I have to be clear and articulate.”
“The first time I had a resume in the mail, it wasn’t really that bad,” said Rebecca, a 27-year-old freelance graphic designer.
“It was just a few pages.
But now, it’s a whole thing.
It takes time and effort to work through the information, and I think it’s because of the feedback I get from people who have read my resume.”
A resume with lots of info can be hard to read, so the most important thing to remember is to pick the one that’s most important to you, Rebecca said.
But the best resume, she said, is one that is written with clarity and emotion.
When you do the first few drafts of your resume, make sure to ask yourself, “Is it going to be good for me as a writer to write a resume?
And if it is, do I need it?””
I’m not sure I want to be writing a LinkedIn resume,” Rebecca said, “but if I could get a better resume and make a good one, then I’d definitely consider it.””
I’ll always think about it, but I don’t always remember to think about what I should be writing about,” she said.
