Recently, several recruiters and business managers replied to an online request for a few interview tips. The tips that they offered most often were to be honest and to show a genuine interest in the company. The best resume, the kind that I pride myself on writing, prepares you for the interview by providing a strongly worded, truthful summary of your skills and achievements. It shows that you understand what a company wants in its next employee.
When I work with you, I make sure that together we capture all of your most important skills and achievements. A well-written resume lets you head out to the interview with a sense of pride in what you have accomplished. During the interview, you will not have to scramble for explanations because your resume truly reflects you.
The best resume is crafted for the job you want, not the job(s) you left behind. Therefore, every word targets the types of industries, companies and positions that you are most interested in. That focus provides the groundwork for the interest you will show during the interview.
Bring a copy of your resume with you to any interview. It is helpful when filling out forms and may be needed by the interviewer. But most important, while you wait for your appointment, you can remind yourself of how much value you will bring to the company.
