Your resumé is not your past…it is your future.

A new graduate to often writes his or her resumé as a chronology of their past life…which, to put it mildly…no one really cares about. It is important to remember, you represent potential to an employer and the future of his/her company. Writing about your past might be interesting but it will have little to do with the decision-making process unless, the employer can see where you fit in, what you want to do and your enthusiasm to do it. This means your resumé should indicate accomplishments and transferable skills that are applicable to the position and the employer. The more research you do about the position and company before you send your resumé, the easier it will be to make your resumé stand out from the competition. Write your resumé with this in mind and you will get an interview…the next big step in your job search.
