In reviewing and providing suggestions on a handful of resumes this week, I think we often get too concerned on the format versus the content.
Here’s some questions that I came up with to ask yourself that might be helpful:
1. Have I accurately detailed out what value I added, goals achieved, company and personal success I obtained?
2. Have I put in enough detail to help explain what specific processes and functionality I created/improved so a future employer understands my expertise?
3. Do I show what creative solutions I came up with and why it was helpful and valuable to the organization?
I think resumes are personal, and in the end you have to be comfortable with it.
You can ask 5 different people and get 5 different opinions.
Maybe this verse is enough:
“show you’re wise, tell no lies, be easy on the eyes, and your career will rise”. -Shakespeare Hopper
