From the Dream World to the Real World:Building Your Resume

 “How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.”

 Abraham Lincoln

There are two principles to enshrine as job search axioms. Everything revolves around these two ideas:

1.You are marketing yourself.Period. End of story. Your resume is, in every meaningful sense, an ad. Everything you do is meant to sell your candidacy to the people who matter. If you don’t feel like you’re a natural salesperson, don’t despair. We have a plan.

 

2. You have to keep employers interested.Always remember that you’re answering a single question: What can you show employers that will make them want to find out more? Keep that crucial question in mind. There are stories of exceptions, but it is a vanishingly small percentage of applicants who are hired on the basis of resumes alone. At every stage of the process, your goal is to reach the next stage, whatever that is. Your resume, for example, does its job if it gets you an interview. A screening interview is a success if it gets you to a follow-up.

 

No matter where you are in your search, keep those axioms in mind. Whenever you’re in doubt or faced with a difficult choice, remind yourself that each action you take should serve the two principles that make up your real agenda.
