Your resume is your marketing tool and you are the "solution" being sold. Like any brochure, it outlines your skills and experiences so an employer can see, at a glance, how you meet their needs and if your skills are at the level being sought.
While you may have all the requirements for a particular position, your resume isn't working for you if the employer does not instantly come to the conclusion that you are worth talking to. The first hurdle your resume has to pass - whether it ends up in the "consider file" or the "reject file" - may take less than thirty seconds.
Does your resume reflect your accomplishments?
Does your resume include the applicable keywords?
Is your resume tailored to your industry or specialty?
What are your transferrable skills?
Have you highlighted your most saleable skills for today's job market?
Will your resume draw the attention of a competency-based search?
Do you need a chronological or functional resume?
Resume Tip: The most effective resumes are clearly focused on a specific job title and address the employer's stated requirements for the position. The more you know about the responsibilities and skills required for the job - and organize your resume around these points - the more likely your resume will be read.
