Resume lacks focus.
A sharp focus is an extremely important
resume element. Given that employers screen
resumes for as few as 6 seconds, a resume
should show the employer at a glance what
you want to do and what you're good at. Studies
have shown that employers wanted resumes to
show a clear match between the applicant and
a particular job's requirements. A "general"
resume that is not focused on a specific job's
requirements is seen as not competitive. In a
study by CareerBuilder.com, 71 percent of hiring
managers preferred a resume customized for
the open position.
One way to sharpen your focus is through
verbiage at the top of your resume that instantly
catches the reader's eye and identifies the area(s)
in which you can make a contribution.
This verbiage can take one of several --- or
a combination --- of forms:
A "headline," usually simply the title of the
position you're applying for, which can be
adjusted for every job you apply for.
A branding statement, a punchy "ad-like"
statement that tells immediately what you can
bring to an employer.
To sharpen your focus, consider a section
such as a "Summary of Qualifications," "Profile,"
or the like. Such a section, in a reader-friendly
bulleted format can contribute to powerful
resume opener that draws the reader in; it can
be part of the top third of resume that showcases
your best selling points, catches the prospective
employer's attention, and immediately demon-
strates your value as a candidate. "Think of
this section as an executive summary of your
resume," writes my partner, Dr. Randall Hansen.
"Identify key accomplishments that will grab
the attention of an employer."
You can use your Profile/Summary section
to position yourself for each job you target by
tweaking the wording to fit each type of posi-
Resume is duties-driven instead of accom-
Resumes should consist primarily of high-
impact accomplishments statements that sell
the job-seeker's qualifications as the best can-
Never use expressions such as "Duties includ-
ed," "Responsibilities included," or "Responsible
for." That's job-description language, not
accomplishments-oriented resume language
that sells. After all, if you were an employer
and wanted to run a successful organisation,
would you be looking for candidates who can
perform only their basic job functions, or would
you want employees with a proven track record
of accomplishments? In these days in which
most resumes are placed into keyword-search-
able databases, you won't find employers search-
ing resumes for words like "responsibilities,"
"duties," or "responsible for."
Instead, focus on accomplishments that set
you apart from other job candidates. In each
job, what special things did you do to set your-
self apart? How did you do the job better than
anyone else? What did you do to make it your
own? What special things did you do to impress
your boss so that you might be promoted?
What were the problems or challenges that you
or the organization faced? What did you do to
overcome the problems? What were the results
of your efforts? How did the company benefit
from your performance? How did you leave
your employers better off than before you
worked for them?
Resume buries important job-relevant
skills at the bottom.
When a job posting lists specific skills
required for a given job, be sure to feature those
skills (assuming you have them) prominently
in the top third of the first page of your resume.
Many job-seekers tend to tack a "Skills" section
to the end of their resumes. If specific skills
are relevant to your field, list them in your
Summary or Profile section. That way, they'll
catch the reader's eye in the first third of your
resume. If you are in the technology field, list
your technical skills in a separate section called
something like "Systems Proficiencies," but be
sure it's on the first page of your resume. You
may want to set your skills up in a reader-
friendly table, as in these samples: Operations
Manager Resume and New Grad IT Resume.
Similarly if language and international-busi-
ness skills are important in the type of job you
seek, list them in your Summary or Profile sec-
tion, not at the end of your resume.
