Model Resumes and other comments

Resumes: One of life's no brainers

Even with the hundreds of books written about resumes and the numerous, maybe hundreds, of web sites with resume information, confusion still abounds. One of the main worries is having the "right" resume or writing the "winning," resume. A "right" resume is a matter of perception. One person's "right" resume could be another person's, "doesn't work" resume. In the end, experience will be your best teacher. The difference between the Electronic Resume and the New Paper Resume is format. In the Electronic Resume all information is left flush, including the header information. (See Below) For the New Paper Resume, the header is centered (See Below) and I change Keywords to Key Information. The New Careering approach goes like this: start doing something and correct as you go along. Everything in life grows and changes.

Shaping Resumes: I don't tend to go for shaping a resume. Shaping means writing it to fit the job you're applying for. If that works for you, do it. If it doesn't, don't worry about it. Shaping a resume can both help and hurt you, only you can determine if that's what you should do.

Objective: My position is that an objective stated on your resume can work either for or against you. So, I play it safe and leave it off.

Keywords: Really put time into developing your keyword list. I'll pay off. As you'll note in the instructions, the one with the most keywords wins because the computer has more possibilities to search through. Keywords are nouns, not ACTION VERBS.

Instructions

 

1. Develop your keyword list (nouns)

2. The one with the most keywords wins as the computer rads only keywords

3. Make your keyword list, let it rest, then go back again and look at it. You'll be surpirsed what comes to you when you rturn to it.

4. Getting those keywords fleshed out can be difficult, but once you have them, you merely add to them and keep updating your resume.

5. On a paper resume, neatness, simplicity, and no misspelled words works best. Print on good quality paper.

Cost depends on time used. The more YOU do, the less it costs. If you follow the models on this page, you'll do fine.
