Your Resume is NOT about YOU! 🚫

When we create a Resume, we make sure that:


➡️ The description presents to the reader our expertise


➡️ Job tailored & includes keywords


➡️ Maximum 1-page length


➡️ Eye appealing & reader-friendly


➡️ We are proud of what we can contribute to a team 🤝


That’s all correct❗


But what if I tell you that your Resume IS NOT about YOU? 🤔


What if I ask you to switch the perspective and think as a hiring manager (of the role you apply to)? 🔄


He has an open role, and his challenge/ problem is to pick the RIGHT candidate from the market. 🔍 Among other strategic business decisions, he needs to make, he is responsible for choosing the RIGHT specialist for a SPECIFIC role. 🎯


You can differentiate from other applicants by switching the perspective. While writing your Resume ask yourself: how does my Resume solve the problem of the hiring manager?


To find out the problem of the hiring manager/ company, you can:


🟢 Carefully study the Job Description


🟢 Analyse the company’s website & social media accounts


🟢 Speak to employees who are working there or were working at this company (especially if they are in your network).


💡 Remember: Your Resume is a strategic document that positions you as the solution to the employer's challenges.
