BUILD MY RESUME

CLT2011WhitePaper.jpg We’ve more than once cited shorter, tighter, more concise resumes in our current series of excerpts from the Findings of 2011 Global Career Brainstorming Day: Trends for the Now, the New & the Next in Careers. The findings suggest resume addenda to supplement shorter resumes:
Shorter resumes drive greater demand for addenda. Project highlights, client/engagement highlights, leadership bios, technology profiles, and other in-­‐depth documents and leave-­‐behinds become more essential as resumes continue to shrink. Career professionals who advise their clients on these addenda, and assist in their creation, provide a valuable service to help clients develop rich materials that help candidates stand out from the crowd.
This post is part of our series of excerpts from the white paper, Findings of 2011 Global Career Brainstorming Day: Trends for the Now, the New & the Next in Careers. The brainstorming day was held October 14, 2011, by the Career Thought Leaders Consortium, publishers of the white paper, and included the input of more than 250 career professionals from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
