Advice From A Professional Resume Writer
- Individuals have a tough time explaining their Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) in a presentable way that “SELLS” them. Most of the time, it’s hard to sell valuable knowledge when writing about your own career experience. At the end of creating resumes, I hear it all the time, “looks great”, “this resume pokes its chest out”; “I didn’t realize how much I really accomplished”. More than often, individuals use up too much space stating the obvious: “excellent communication skills”, “great customer service”. That doesn’t tell a story, what did you do? How did you provide customer service? An excellent communicator and great customer service representative can be grasp from the presentation of your KSAs.
- When I come across people who have very technical jobs, I love to read what they do but the average recruiter or human resource personnel will not understand. In this instance, non-technical skills are hidden. To fix this issue, display your skills in a way that is easy to understand. Your technical skills can be added to the Professional Development section of your resume and use the Work Experience section to present your KSAs.
- It is hard to highlight your 10-20 year career in 1-3 pages, which is naturally an acceptable length for a resume. The reason the task is so hard is that people waste valuable space by writing irrelevant information. Your resume should be tailored to the specific industry of interest. For example, if you worked in a Fuel Laboratory and you’re interested in a Logistics position, list those transitional skills related to Logistics. Do not waste space naming the different Lab equipment you used for testing, it’s irrelevant.
