Want to test your resume?
As you read through your resume, do so as a stranger reading it for the very first time.
What stands out?
What leaves the greatest impression on you?
What assumptions or conclusions do you have to make?
What needs more clarification or explanation?
What have you done to prove what you say is true?
What stories demonstrate your expertise?
What separates you from the rest of the applicants?
Why would the employer chose your resume?
Why would the company call you in for an interview and not the 200 other people who meet or exceed the job requirements?
What makes you the ideal candidate for this position?
If you take the time to do this, you will not only demonstrate the type of candidate you are, and the character you have, you will strengthen and clarify your message to the employer and improve your chance for interview selection.
Good luck, you ideal candidate, you!
