October 19, 2007, Newsletter Issue #117: Are Resumes Necessary?

Tip of the Week

A resume is your marketing brochure. It outlines your skills, experience, and education, and gives the employer reasons to you for an interview. Filling out an application summarizes your experience, but it is designed and formatted by the employer. Your resume is designed by you, and as such highlights your strengths and work achievements. Landing that job requires a good sales presentation, and as a good salesman, you don't want to try to sell your “product” without your sales aids. Use all the tools at your disposal, and your reume should be at the top of the tool box.

In addition to helping you sell yourself on paper, your resume serves as a focus that can help you do better on your interview.
