Your resume is your personal marketing tool, so DON’T create a resume that reads like a legal HR department job document.
There’s nothing worse than a resume that looks or reads like a technical job description written by your HR department. Our advice to job seekers who are writing their own resumes is this: Don’t copy all of the items from your company job description onto your resume! It will be obvious to the reader and it will not market your unique skills.
An employer needs to see how and why you stand out from other candidates, and they want to see your unique achievements and accomplishments.
DO include how and why you succeeded in your past jobs, and how you accomplished your professional goals.
DON’T list your generic responsibilities with no context, and don’t simply list your daily tasks. Instead, add quantitative or measurable data and don’t be shy about bragging if you accomplished great things! You’ll be surprised what a difference this can make.
