‘Tis The Season: Answers to 6 Résumé Questions that will make your Résumé Rock this Holiday Season:

Reasons for a résumé, what are they? A résumé can be used to inform the key decision makers of your demonstrated successes and skills that may be useful for companies who are currently having similar problems and need someone to come in and help out. Learn more about company profiles at http://www.hoovers.com/.

Even if I already have a résumé and have been on my job for a while, why do I need to redo it? The workforce needs jobseekers who understand the necessity of coming in to a company and contributing in problem solving and strategic planning. Résumés should be updated for each job application and with each new skill learned.  See http://myskillsmyfuture.org/for more information on skills.

So what? If your résumé can answer the “So What?” question, you may be increasing your chance of obtaining an interview or a phone call from a perspective decision maker. See http://jobwinningresumes.net to pick up a copy of “Interview Pocket RX: One Minute Solutions to Ace the Interview.
