Have You Ever Had Your Resume Critiqued?

Do you feel that your resume is pretty good, but you are not able to secure any interviews? If you are a pretty good writer, it may be very good to have your resume critiqued. This may require an investment on your part, but may be well worth your time and effort if fine tuning your resume helps you to secure interviews.

Let’s take a look…..

One. Look at the visual appeal from a distance. Does it look good? Do you see clear demarcations highlighting your job title, company name, dates, and locations of job descriptors…. inconsistent placement makes you appear less than honest and at the very least you will be perceived as someone who does not proofread.

Now let’s look at the content…….

  • Can you say that your resume meets these qualifications EXCELLENTLY, FAIRLY or POORLY?

1.Is the targeted job position included in the first sentence in your professional summary section?

2.Is your resume well constructed and summarizes your expertise in a nutshell?

3.Are your primary targeted skills, attributes, and qualifications included?

4.Does your resume contain heavy-hitting, marketing-savvy, impactful statements?

5.Have you used varied sentence types that entice the hiring officials to want to read the rest of your resume?

6.Have you used applicable keywords and industry-specific keywords for your profession infused within your resume?

  • Check these additional bits and pieces of information on your resume?

1.Does your resume target an employers’ needs with matching qualifications demonstrating a fit between your qualifications and their needs?

2.Is the most important information listed in the top one-third section of the resume?

3.Are your employment gaps skillfully handled?

4.Does your resume go back no more than 15 years?

5. Does your resume play up your strengths and minimize your weaknesses?

6. Have your technical skills and other relevant proficiencies pertinent to your job/career identified and included in your resume?

  • Well, let’s make sure that your resume includes the following…

1.Does the first bullet under each job/career area include your most important responsibility in each position?

2.Does each description begin with an action verb and include as much specific information as possible, including percentage of success, amounts of money, and numbers of persons collaborating to complete a tasks.

3. Does the resume include the areas of success that you are most proud to discuss?

4. When read, does each descriptor showcase comprehensively offering a full understanding of what you accomplished.

5.Is each word on your resume concisely mentioned. Are only the most necessary words listed on the resume. Have you deleted any unnecessary words. Is the content on your resume simply stated?

How is your relationship with yourself reflected on your resume?

How is your relationship with yourself reflected on your resume?

Companies are seeking competent, task-oriented, results-driven professionals who will join their team. They expect each of their employees to possess a healthy sense of self and awareness as to how they are seen in the company (company culture and image) and the impact that they can make to solve today’s complex and challenging work concerns. Being overly sensitive about your body reflects a need to re-tune and re-connect using Dr. Lynn Joseph’s, “Refining Your Visualization Skills”. Guided visualization creates an imaginary experience with far reaching results. Companies need your head, mid-section, back, legs and feet in the game of work! If you expect to be invited to take a seat at the interviewers table, tailor that resume to reflect a healthy view of your relationship with yourself!
