How do you promote yourself? How do you create a resume that stands out from the others? Start by asking yourself what your objective is. First decide what you are communicating.
Then, who is your target audience? And, last what is the reaction you expect to create. By starting backwards, you can more clearly understand where to begin. If you were reviewing resumes, what would you need to see to stimulate your interest?
What should you lead with? What should you close with? What should sit in the middle? Where do you want to draw the reader’s attention? Your education? Your skills? Your results? Your awards?
By prioritizing what’s important to the reader, you’ll be able to single out those areas to showcase.
