Your resume is a biography of your work – it not only a story of experience, achievements, credibility and capability; but also goes about as an impetus in drawing an obvious conclusion of your experience for the recruiter/employer, who are endeavoring to comprehend your identity, what have you done in past and what are you equipped for doing in future.
Now, have a look at your resume – does it helps the person on the other side of table to quickly know who you are? Or are you sure they will go ahead and read your resume thoroughly?
It just takes few seconds for the recruiter to decide whether its a ‘Yes’ or a ‘No’!!
Therefore, it is very important to learn how to tell your career story. Your career story:
- Helps separate your application from your companions.
- Plays a key role in conveying your brand.
- Helps the other person in quickly absorbing what you can do for them (simply ROI).
If your story catches enthusiasm, you never know- it will make recruiter/employer need to know more about you. By any chance, if it does not convey the story clearly – your reader at that point will fail to grasp who you truly are and why your range of abilities ought to be applicable and essential to them.
Otherwise, you will end up applying for positions for which you are qualified, yet you will over and again fail to land an interview. Your hunt of employment will crash and burn or you will wind up with so few prospects that it will give the idea that nobody needs to enlist you.
Keep in mind: your resume is a tale of how you got the chance to be the place you are today, why you need to work for the new organization and for what reason you’re ideal for the job.
And once you are done telling a great story in your resume, most importantly, YOU should have confidence in it.
Some of you might have a great career document, where as some have not thought of working on it. Don’t worry we are all work in progress, including me.
To boost your confidence about telling your story, write it down. Start working on your career documents, as you never know, someone may ask for it.
Be Original! You are one-of-a-kind.
