Your resume is a marketing document, not a work history document.

Yes, you use your work history to market yourself, but 99.9% of the people I’ve encountered do it the wrong way.

In my work history, for example, I’ve helped companies earn likely billions of dollars. I’ve built project management methodologies. I’ve built enough tools for 10 lifetimes.

Do you can about any of that when it comes to helping you find your dream job?

I can create a resume that’s 100,000 words and 99,400 of them wouldn’t do anything but hide the 600 that matter—TO YOU!

It’s all my work history and I’m proud of it, but it’s not important as it relates to you and what you need at this moment so I’m not gonna waste your time with that.

Employers aren’t companies. They’re a bunch of people with personal and corporate needs.

The biggest mistake job seekers make is not obsessing over what the employer’s need and putting that information front and center for them.

They need to see the right CONTENT with the right CONTEXT in the right SEQUENCE.

This is difficult for so many reasons, but the killer is the main culprit is job seekers don’t take the time upfront to consider the employers before they consider themselves.

Lucky for you, you career mediator thinks of both of you (even if what I care about most is helping you get a great job with a great payday).

Inside today’s podcast on Resume Revolution: Resume Writing Tips and AI Tricks That Elevate Your Resume, I take a deep dive on how to:

·       Determine which information to put in your resume for max power.

·       Entice the employers to want to interview you.

·       Translate the information on your resume to interview stories.

·       Use AI (ChatGPT) to really punch up all this stuff.

It’s like the quadruple header of resume hits all wrapped up into one snazzy tutorial.

That’s why it’s a lofty 43:21.

Grab a coffee or a cocktail or whatever’s your pleasure. It’s a doozy!
