2 Things your resume shows people about who you are

You look good every day. Fresh, ironed and pressed slacks, nice subtle jewelry, and you display the look of an ideal professional who has what it takes to shine. Then you open your mouth! WHEEEEE ! You say such dumb things as, “I’m over qualified”, “I’m too young”, “I’ve been black balled”, or “It’s hard for me cause I don’t fit in”. And believe me, more than not, I can almost guarantee you that this is not the case. When you think such dumb things, it’s almost certain that you have not utilized your energy to understand how to navigate the job market with your career communications and networking power.

What do people really see when they see you on paper? What message does your career communications shout to colleagues, mentors, and hiring managers. Know!
What do people really see when they see you on paper? What message does your career communications shout to colleagues, mentors, and hiring managers. Know!

We could look at your cover letter, bio, LinkedIn profile, professional associations and relevant industry service, but let’s take a second to start with your resume. Your resume speaks about who you are as a professional. It displays to people 3 Things:

Thing 1 – Your resume shows people how much you stay current with social media and career communication trends. When you know that you should have a different look for a printed resume, a scannable resume, an electronic resume and a web resume, then you are viewed as on top of your game to get noticed by key stakeholders! There are variations in typeset, font, enhancements, size, formats, preferred lengths, paper color and white space that each type of resume should consider to obtain maximum exposure.

Thing 2 – Your resume says, ” I KNOW THAT I AM SHOWING NOT TELLING“! Your resume is a marketing document. When prepared properly, the person who’s eyes your resume will not have one question except, “When can I talk, text, skype or meet this person to discuss how he or she can solve my pain!”.

As you prepare your resume, you will signify indisputably the professional area that you have passion for and desire to continue to help companies solve their issues as a subject matter expert. You have offered specific skilled information and have polished and perfected your content so much so that each sentence, phrase and section highlights your strengths, accomplishments, achievements and unique marketing value using $’s, #’s and %.

Many people have been saying to me via social media, that they are not getting the results that they seek. It’s because your resume is showing people that you are one thing and your personal perception of who are you is saying another.
