How to Approach Writing a Resume When You're a Jack of All Trades

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, April 1, 2013 10:12 AM

Many employers or recruiters have a checklist if you will of what the position requires and the competencies for the ideal candidate.  Resist the urge to make yourself look like a CEO when you are applying for an entry level position.

 

My tips: Dummy proof your resume!

 

1.  Target your summary and competencies at the top of your resume to reflect the experience the employer is seeking

2.  Highlight the experience and skills that are relevant to the position you are applying for.  (make them top and center)

3.  If possible, re-purpose your accomplishments with language that is industry language

Nice article that explains the difference, and the pros and cons of a chonological resume vs. a functional resume format.

 

I would be interested in hearing your opinion on both.  Which one do you use?

Brevity by Dan Thompson, May 19, 2013 Via @GoComics | Technical writing | Scoop.it
Brevity is not only the soul of wit, it's also not your normal comics fare. In the hands of Dan, it is sharply intelligent, amusingly idiosyncratic and often uproariously funny.

Brevity is the hallmark of a good technical writer

In order for the first paragraph of an essay to actually be a proper introduction (in other words, for it to fulfill the requirements of a proper introduction), it must do two things. These two things are:

1) Include a thesis statement.
2) Provide a preview or essay plan for the essay.
