7 WHAT IS A RÉSUMÉ? 1. A résumé is an organized written presentation of relevant information and accomplishments specifically targeted toward your work/job search objective. 2. It is the answer to why an employer should hire you. 3. It is your initial introduction to process people and decision makers, inside or outside your company, when applying for a job or promotion. 4. It is support documentation to pass on to your existing network of contacts... people you know who then pass it on to people they know. 5. It forces you to inventory your skills, background, education, soft skills and accomplishments in a concise manner. 6. It is an essential tool that supports your job search campaign. 7. It helps you to write your quality cover letters. 8. It prepares you for your interview. 9. It validates who you are and what you have to offer. 10. It serves as an attachment to your job application or contract proposal. 11. It can assist your references in speaking out in your behalf. 12. It is a reference tool to match job leads with your experience. 13. It is a tool that can build your confidence. 14. It helps you make a favorable impression. 15. It is a tool that can help you prepare your infomercials, personal introductions, working a room and small talk. It is your story, your track record, your working life. 4

8 BASIC WRITING TIPS A résumé will be read/skimmed in approximately 20 seconds. It should be clear, direct, effective, professional and easy to read. These days, job seekers must have two versions of their résumés. One version should be an unformatted and text only résumé ideal for online posting through EFM and other job search websites; the second version should be a well formatted (Word Document or PDF) résumé for in-person interactions (interviews, networking opportunities, etc.). Both résumés must address your market value and answer in 20 seconds or less, the question Why should I hire you? Key in on accomplishments, credentials and experience. Prioritize this information and put these important facts first in the top third of the page. BEFORE YOU BEGIN, THINGS TO KNOW: Use 1/2 inch margins, bold type and headings, indentations and bullets for emphasis and to guide the reader s eye. Balance white space and information; use short sentences and short paragraphs. Use the left-hand margin for emphasis. Print only on one side of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Use an excellent printer. Smudged, faint, heavy or otherwise poor quality print will discourage readers. Do not staple or paperclip your correspondence. For in web/text only résumés, use Courier New font in type; do not use special formatting like bullets, tabs, italics, etc. For in-person only résumés use the New Times Roman, Tahoma or Arial fonts in a type. Use bullet statements to facilitate skimming. Avoid long paragraphs and large blocks of text. 1. Know your audience before you begin to prepare the document. Target the résumé to the job and the employer. Use a good quality white or ivory paper only. 2. Make sure your résumé is free of all spelling, grammatical or typographical errors. Have someone else proofread your résumé. 3. Use a standard address format and, if you have more than one phone number, enter it on a separate line 4. Have a Job Title and place it high on your résumé (underneath your name and contact information). 5. Have a Performance Profile section on your résumé that describes your ability to do the job. 6. Have at least 8 Keyword nouns comprised of industry specified hard skills, qualifications or terms, which can be identified by going through 10 job postings/listings with similar job titles in your field and taking the words that are repeatedly mentioned. Repeat these keywords throughout your résumé and cover letter. 5

9 BASIC WRITING TIPS-continued 7. Sell features and benefits. What skills do you have that will interest the employer? 8. Quantify your accomplishments. Tell how much, how many, how often. 9. Don t extend your employment dates to fill in gaps. 10. Package the résumé in an exciting way. Use action words. 11. Be sure the résumé is well organized and concise; 1 to 2 pages in most cases. 12. Provide the last 10 years of your work history (15 years if relevant). 13. Do not overuse capitalization, italics or underlines. 14. The résumé must be professionally presented, consistent with the industry. 15. Your résumé can have a distinct personality. Choose your language carefully. 16. Your most recent job may use current or past tense depending on your current status. Use past tense to describe accomplishments, as they are completed actions. 17. Use up-to-date terminology, key words relevant to the industry you have targeted. 18. Spell out terms versus using abbreviations and acronyms. 19. Write the résumé in the third person and avoid using the pronoun I. 20. Do not include personal information. 21. Always include a cover letter unless you are told differently by the employer. 22. If you are a graduate student or have been out of the workforce for a while, you must make a special effort at displaying high emotion, potential, motivation and energy. For example, show that you are resourceful, innovative, and a contributing team member. 23. The résumé should be a positive document. Do not lie, but you don t have to tell all. Keep negative thoughts and concepts out of your résumé. 6

10 LUCKY 13 GUIDELINES The single most important thing to remember when you are preparing a printed résumé is that you are writing a sales document. You have a product to sell yourself and it must be attractively packaged and presented. To compete against hundreds, if not thousands, of other qualified candidates, your résumé must be sharp, distinctive, and dynamic in both its wording and its visual presentation. Here are some guidelines that will help you accomplish this goal: Guideline #1 Guideline #2 Guideline #3 Guideline #4 Guideline #5 Guideline #6 Guideline #7 Guideline #8 Guideline #9 Guideline #10 Guideline #11 Guideline #12 Guideline #13 Think bottom line. How can you improve a company s economics? Think goals. What can you do to further the achievement of organizational goals? Think about ways to exceed expectations, such as noting that you made more sales than you were projected to make or service more customers than required. Choose your words with care. Make them powerful and compelling. Remember that your résumé is a sales tool. Don t write an autobiography or memoir. Use strategy, not gimmicks, like hiding dates or leaving them out completely. Make the format reader friendly. Key points should be easy to find, easy to read, and readily accessible. Don t be afraid to blow your own horn. Remember, your competition will! Don t include salary or other information not relevant to your career objective. Separate responsibilities from achievements in the employment section. For instance, responsibilities can be outlined within paragraphs but achievements can be bulleted to stand out. In most cases, it s not what you did but how well you did it that determines hireability. Put yourself in the shoes of the person who is hiring you. What would he or she want to see on your résumé? Identify and clearly document your signature talents, such as saving money, adding to sales, improving productivity, or enhancing efficiency. These have high-impact value. Wear your résumé with pride, confidence, and certainty. When you do, you ll interview well. 7

11 RÉSUMÉ FORMATS: WHICH ONE IS BEST? RÉSUMÉ FORMAT Reversed Chronological Combination Functional ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES BEST USED BY Widely used format Logical flow, easy to read Showcases growth in skills and responsibility Shows promotions and impressive titles Show company loyalty Highlights most relevant skills and accomplishments De-emphasizes employment history in less relevant jobs Combines skills developed in a variety of jobs or other activities Minimizes drawbacks such as employment gaps and absence of directly related experience Emphasizes skills rather than employment Organizes a variety of experience (paid and unpaid work, other activities) Disguises gaps in work record or a series of short term jobs Emphasizes gaps in employment Highlights frequent job changes Emphasizes employment but not skill development Emphasizes lack of related experience and career changes Points out demotions/career set backs Confusing if not well organized Requires more effort and creativity to prepare Viewed with suspicion by employers due to lack of information about specific employers and dates De-emphasizes growth/job titles Individuals with steady work record Individuals with experience that relates directly to the position applied for Career changers or those in transition Individuals reentering the job market after some absence Individuals who have grown in skills and responsibility Individuals pursuing the same or similar work as they ve had in the past Individual with no previous employment Individuals with gaps in employment Frequent job changers Individuals who have developed skills from other than documented employment 8

12 APPLICANT TRACKING SOFTWARE What is Applicant Tracking Software (ATS)? Applicant Tracking Software is a database of both jobs and jobseekers that gives a recruiter the ability to build a searchable file of candidates with very little administrative effort, and then to search that database easily for the purpose of finding all candidates who might be qualified to fill an open position. It allows recruiters to review and consider résumés based on the skills and requirements that are needed for a listed job. Mistakes that could remove you from consideration: 1. Résumé Not Attached to Application Cut and paste résumé; if attaching, make sure résumé gets attached to application before submitting. 2. Wrong Contact Information Ensure that contact information is correctly inputted in the right field. Double check all information before saving and submitting. 3. Unfocused Search Ensure that you are only applying for positions that you are qualified to do. Applying to too many positions or to positions without similar skill sets can disqualify you from serious consideration. 4. Did Not Include Keywords in Résumé and Cover Letter Whether you're a project manager, or a marketer, read every job posting related to your profession to get a sense of the key skills and capabilities organizations consistently seek. Even if you don't plan to apply for these jobs, scanning the ads will increase your awareness of the most commonly used industry-standard terms and keywords that you should build into your résumé and cover letter. Applicant tracking software use keyword-matching algorithms as one way to identify potentially qualified candidates 5. Used fancy formatting or fonts Depending on the tracking software, its system might scan your résumé into a back-end database. To ease scanning, format your résumé as simply as possible; don't include graphics, pictures or tables, because they won't scan. Also limit the amount of bold, italics and underlining, and use a font that scans easily, such as Times New Roman, Arial, Helvetica, Century, Century Gothic, Bookman, Garamond or Trebuchet. Once your information is in the system, you may be considered for other positions, as recruiters search their candidate database on the ATS system frequently. 9

13 KEYWORDS The key to matching employer s needs Job candidates need to speak the language of employers. Communicate the right messages to the right people through the use of keywords and keyword phrases. What are keywords? Keywords are hot words, jargon or buzzwords associated with a specific industry, profession or job function. When used effectively, a keyword phrase can communicate an entire message with a simple word or two. These keywords are used by recruiters, employers and job seekers, as each explore databases and job websites for résumé and job leads. Most companies today use applicant-tracking software, which scans résumés for keywords about training, degrees, job titles and experience. Today, keywords are everywhere - in industry and every profession - and must be vital components of each job seeker s campaign. Keywords get you noticed, not passed over! Keywords should be used in: Powerful résumés Cover letters Thank you letters Career profiles Infomercials Interview responses Example #1 Human Resources Professional Benefits Design & Administration Diversity Management Employee Communications Employee Recognition Employee Relations Example #2 International Business Professional Cross-Border Transactions Cross-Cultural Business Relations Foreign Government Relations Global Business Development Import & Export Operations Example #3 Manufacturing Professional Human Resources Information Systems Labor Relations & Union Negotiation Performance Appraisals & Promotions Training & Development International Trade Joint Venture Transactions Mergers & Acquisitions Multinational Contract Negotiations Worldwide Sales & Marketing Capital Projects Facilities Management & Expansion Logistics Operations Management Process Automation Product Manufacturability Productivity Improvement Quality Assurance Warehousing & Distribution Workforce Management 10

21 CREATING YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT STATEMENTS Identifying an Accomplishment Identifying an accomplishment is very similar to telling a story. The story might go something like this: When I was in the Employee Records Department, I was responsible for processing salary increases. It took one week to process an increase and this seemed too long. I flow-charted the process and found duplication in three of the steps. I proposed a new process to management in both my Department and the Payroll Department which eliminated the duplication. I documented the new procedure, trained the staff in both departments, and established check points to see if everything was working. After using this new procedure for two weeks, we had reduced the processing time by about 20%. Analyzing an Accomplishment The components of the above accomplishment are: PROBLEM: Processing time of salary increases too slow. ACTION: Flow-charted and analyzed current procedure, identified duplicate work, developed and proposed new procedure, documented the new procedure, trained the staff and checked for accuracy. OUTCOME/BENEFIT: Processing time reduced by 20%. Writing the Accomplishment Statement An accomplishment statement is a concise statement, which combines the ACTION and OUTCOME/BENEFIT components of an accomplishment. An accomplishment statement for our sample accomplishment might look like this: Analyzed, modified and implemented a revised procedure for processing salary increases, which reduced processing time by 20%. Another accomplishment statement which can be derived from this example is: Trained staff on new procedure for processing salary increases, which resulted in increased accuracy and efficiency. 18
