It’s All About Landing The Interview
To get the job of your dreams you need to have an interview at some point. To have an interview, even if it’s through networking, you need to have a resume. Just because you aren’t in a full fledge job search doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have an winning resume.

“Best Practice #1 is to be ready for the opportunity. Always, always, be ready for your next opportunity and always have an update resume and/or portfolio (for those of you in the marketing world)”, Dawn Cerrato, Synergy Management Associates.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

1. Tell your next employer what you did to add value to the companies you’ve worked for - i.e. what were your results, what did you achieve, why did it matter?

2. Solve Someone’s Problem - Every company has problems and if they are seeking to fill a role they want the right person to solve those particular problems so specify what you’ve done to solve problems in the way you describe your accomplishments.

3. Customize, Customize and Customize - Match your skills, knowledge and capabilities to your potential employers needs.

4. Write your branding statement at the top of the resume. Who are you, what do you bring to the organization, why should they be dying to meet you? Don’t take my word for it just take a look at what The Ladders has to say!
