It is imperative to write a thank you note after an interview. For instance, when I applied at the Hyatt, after the interview, a week after I sent a thank you note which let the office and the person hiring know my interest for the job and the company as well as a humble thank you for their time.

Instead of an objective statement I always suggest a strong summary that is targeted to the job/industry you are seeking.  Also, adding strengths and accomplishments will help inject your peronality into the resume.

 

I could not agree more with the article regarding metrics.  When I scan resumes, I am more interested in what you accomplished while you were in the job, instead of what you were responsible for.  So show those numbers, metrics, and Key performance indicators.

 

Hope you enjoy the article.  Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

Is it bragging when it is the truth - #Resume

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, April 4, 2014 9:19 AM

When it comes to your resume is it bragging when you are telling the truth?   So many of my highly talented friends have such high accomplishments, and are so humble.  I find that to be such a wonderful attribute.

 

When it comes to their resumes however, it is like pulling teeth to get them to document their relevant accomplishments.  They feel like they are bragging, and the resume does not reflect who they are.

 

First of all the days have long passed when a resume what simply a one page document that outlined what positions you held. 

 

A successful resume should be approached like designing a brochure, and the product you are selling is you.  The difference is that a brochure may focus on subjective benefits where your resume needs to talk numbers.

 

It is not bragging when you state that through your leadership....Your division exceeded revenue goals by ___%, or increased customer loyalty by ____, etc.

 

So please don't think of it as bragging, just tell me the facts:)

 

Hope this helps:)  Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

When it comes to your resume or an interview is it bragging when you are telling the truth?   So many of my highly talented friends have such high accomplishments, and are so humble.  I find that to be such a wonderful attribute.

 

When it comes to their resumes or during an interview however, it is like pulling teeth to get them to discuss their relevant accomplishments.  They feel like they are bragging. 

 

It is not bragging when you share objective facts like Your division exceeded revenue goals by ___%, or increased customer loyalty by ____, etc. -- or you we recognized or nominated for _____.

 

So please don't think of it as bragging, it is just sharing important facts about how you contributed and added value.   

Hope this helps:)  Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, March 31, 2014 6:31 PM

I particularly agree with the suggestion to arrive early; however, not too early.  After you have parked you could use the time in your vehicle to tune up your mood, motivation, and appearance.  Play one of your favorite songs that will put you in a good mood.  Take a breath mint, check your clothes, your face, and hands. Review your notes, and remind yourself what you have to offer the company.

 

If you arrive too early you could run into another person interviewing for the same position, or you could catch the hiring manager still at lunch, and you don't want them to rush on your account.

 

Do you have any other tips that you could offer everyone on how to use the time productively?  Would love to hear from you!

 

Until the next time....PS - Live on Purpose!
