Amor Pistis. resume. October 21st , 2017.
I am often contacted by people (oftentimes mothers) who took an extended absence from the workforce to raise children. Those children get older and more self-sufficient; the stay at home moms decide they would like to return to the workplace. Oftentimes these women had good careers, working as attorneys, project managers, analysts, and technology professionals, among many other professions.
When you are writing a resume, your key goal is to have the resume help you get an interview for the job. It is important to remember that the prospective employer will no doubt be going through hundreds of resumes, so you want to be sure that your resume stands out among the many resumes they are looking at. The following are a few tips to help you write an exceptional resume that will get you noticed by prospective employers.
I cant count the number of times Ive heard people talk about updating their resume when thinking about making a career change. If you are one of those people out there putting the polish on your resume as you are about to launch a job search for a new career- STOP. Your resume is not the place where you start your work on a career change. If you are simply looking for the same or similar position in another company, go ahead. There is a big difference between looking for a job and making a career change. Sure, at some point the process is the same and you will need to have a spiffy resume but its not the place to get started in making a career shift.
As most of you know, Im a strong advocate of everyone having an updated resume and bio. It prevents you from being placed in the embarrassing situation of being asked to shoot me over your current resume and having to say you dont have one or lying and scrambling to create something. The bonus of this discipline is you are forced to reevaluate your job and career on a regular basis as well as update the documents format to meet ever-changing standards. When it comes to biographies, everyone should have three versions very short (often preferred by media outlets), mid-size (good as an introduction when youre an invited speaker), and finally a full pager that gives many of the current facts and delves a little into how you got to where you are now and what your contributions have been.
