Ask Not What the Employer Can Do for You…

BUILD MY RESUME

“Job seekers should always remember that the employer has little or no interest in what the job-seeker wants from a job,” cautioned resume writer Deb Dib in the Q&A interview. she did with Quintessential Careers. “They want to know what the job-seeker can do for them; what bottom-line impact will they have, and how soon can they expect that impact. All personal marketing materials must be written with that vision. The biggest mistake job-seekers make is to focus their resume on themselves by using a boring objective and strictly chronological listing of jobs. A great resume focuses on the job-seeker’s targeted market and uses a defined strategy to show the applicant’s value to the employer.”
