What Is Your Resume All About?

Your resume along with the cover letter should briefly explain only two key points: your strengths and how they can benefit the company – your future employer.

It is essential to understand that your resume is not about what you were "responsible for" in your previous positions. Your resume is about the company's needs.

Companies are searching for a person to fill a gap in the company's structure, namely a person who can solve daily business problems and challenges. They need a professional person who can deliver daily results by performing a specific job.

If your resume is not targeting these key business needs and if you can't show any proof of your previous relevant results, you won't look like the best candidate, and as a result, you won't get the job.

Content in your targeted resume is vital to your success. Experience and skills generate on average 70% of the recruiter's attention, while education and other parts of a resume are scanned with less care.

Keep in mind that your resume is a personal advertisement targeting the specific needs of the company. So, focus on writing targeted content, and you will get much more attention that will finally lead to an interview call.
