I’m noticing recruiting activity has picked up quite a bit over the past 6 weeks. I think that more and more hiring managers and institutions are realizing that we will have to continue to deal with this pandemic for the foreseeable future and hiring can’t pause forever.
With this in mind, I urge you to take this time to imagine what your next role will look like. Then, re-imagine the best marketing document you have in your arsenal…your resume. This is a door-opener and a springboard for conversations during interviews.
If you want to make a change in your career or take the next step up on the ladder of your career, your resume must build the case for your readiness to take on that next challenge.
Most resumes that I see are perfectly tailored to get you the exact same position your currently hold. Your resume needs to be both descriptive of your past experience and position you for your next role.
Don’t present a job description, convey the impact you’ve made and demonstrate your ability to take your skills and experience to the next level.
Tailor your resume to the job you want, not the job you have.
Next month I’ll give you some tips on how to do this!
