Question #1


Are you a man or a woman?




Don't make the mistake of thinking any old thing will do since posting is a simple matter of a few clicks. Some job seekers may take the easy road. But you don't have to. Always keep in mind the importance of doing your best. It will show and it will help you rise above the competition.

Make It Strong. Make It Effective.

A strong and effective job-search resume is your key to catching and holding the hiring manager's attention. Be sure yours stands out from the crowd of resumes listed online. Make no mistake about it—there are thousands—and more are posted each day. This should not scare you away, but rather motivate you to write, rewrite, edit, and polish your resume till it shines!

Keep in mind that your resume should accomplish three things:

1. Display your skills, talents, and experience.
2. Show the hiring manager that you may be the one to fill the job opening.
3. Convince him or her that you are worthy of an interview for the job.

Make Your Resume Work FOR You

If you really want a specific job at a particular company then make sure you do a little homework first. Find out the organization's mission statement and at least one of the major challenges the company faces. The purpose for this is to let the hiring manager know—in your resume—what you can do to contribute to these objectives. Perhaps you had an opportunity at a former company to suggest a way to sell more products or streamline a sales territory or put in a good word for an employee with special skills. Whatever the case may be, if the situation calls for it, add that detail to your resume.

You can provide this information in a list of achievements and their results. Example:

• Built up the northwest sales territory:

Challenge Faced: Shortage of personnel in the area
Action Taken: Hired two new salespeople at cost-effective commission
Result: Increased company revenue in six months by 20%

Show what you've done by using action verbs: handled, managed, faced, streamlined, etc.
Then readers of your resume will know exactly what you can do and they'll be able to envision you in the job they hope to fill. May it be you.
