It must be our resume.
As we go through our job search and apply to positions that seem to be a great fit, and then no one responds, we often turn to our resume to analyze why we’re not getting the attention we deserve.
Asking ourselves, what can we show differently to gain an employer’s interest?
Maybe, if we reword a responsibility or two, to show more depth.
Maybe, if we rewrite the summary, to make it more impactful.
Maybe, if we add a small embellishment of a task that we were a part of, to make it now our own.
Maybe, if we add a credential or two that we’re studying for, but haven’t achieved yet.
Maybe, if we extend a project/employment duration a few more months, to show less downtime.
Maybe, if we add some more keywords, so an applicant tracking system can move ours near the top.
We’ve all been there…
While resumes often still matter, trying to get yours to be picked out of the stack is extremely hard.
Fortunately, there’s another game in town, which includes, creating, building, giving, showing, contributing, and connecting.
Yes, this game takes a lot more effort and time, and fortunately, for you, not many are going to do it.
