Your Resume Competes With Many, Many Others
After you hit the 'submit' button responding to a job posting, your resume goes into a very large pool where it's easily lost.
How will your resume compete with the thousands of others –each competing with you for the attention of the reader?
Think about a one once bottle of perfume, diluted by pouring it into a gallon container of water. Can you still see the same value? Over time, the same thing happens to our resumes. We accomplish more as time goes by and each of our most prized new accomplishments (hopefully) then becomes part of the narrative about our value on our resumes.
Can your value, viewed as your essence, be clearly and quickly identified, or is it lost among a laundry list of accomplishments that actually dilutes your value –leaving it unfocused?
Take the Steps to Increase the Value of Your Resume
