“How To Craft A Winning Résumé” | #MyPost on @Jobbermandotcom


Few days ago, my post titled “5 Creative Ways To Get A Job” raised quite a number of comments with a singular question been asked onhow does one write a professional CV? Today’s post is aimed at offering help in answering this question.

The right mindset for writing a résumé is that of a marketing mindset. You’re a product being sold to a potential employer and the goal of your résumé is to communicate what you can do. You have to see your résumé as a marketing tool because that is what it is; employers’ first impression about you. Your résumé either gets you an audience with the employer or otherwise. That audience is an interview opportunity to defend the product called you and land a job. The more job-seekers master the résumé crafting art, the better their chances of being called for interviews and ultimately getting a job.

A résumé is expected to communicate your skills, knowledge and ability that is suited to the job you are applying for. I must add here that résumés are ‘fluid documents’ that need to change for each new application. Hence, there is no room for you to have a ‘general résumé’ as it were; it has to be well tailored to the job in question or a job you aspire to secure.

The above is an excerpt from my post on Jobberman.com Blog which was published yesterday. The post was titled “How To Craft A Winning Résumé”.
