Irene Marshall – Resumes
Ex-Robert Half Recruiter-10yrs
Usually a person is stronger than what shows on paper:
Need to be able to tell stories
Lag between what we’ve done and your resume.
Why / how do we underestimate how others perceive us.
What do you think will give a bad perception of you?
We don’t know how to talk about what were good at.
How do you want to be perceived?
How do we handle age and employment gaps?
Were told as children not to brag.
1. Find a search partner
2. What is your whole package:
3. Did your job change overtime?
4. Go thru resume line by line, say it out loud. You’ll find ‘things’ to improve.
5. Resume should reflect what you’re doing, Resume tend to go stale.
6. Accomplishments vs job description, usually job description not equal to what you really do.
7. You need to write your resume, not anyone else.
8. Context, challenge, process, results everything needs to be stated this way.
9. Don’t dumb down resume
10. Don’t put things on resume that are not verifiable.
11. Don’t discount what you do at work and apart from work.
