Creative Resume writing
At its best, a resume is a communication tool, carrying your spirit inside a written media to a prospect involved in hiring you or to a middleman networking about it.
Common Wisdom says the only purpose of a resume is to get you to the interview. But writing a good resume is a process of internal focus and clarification which has its own benefits.
How to begin
Its best to begin with a personal declaration of work principles, like outlined in the book 7 Habits of Successful people. It helps to clarify your long-term goals.
Then, prepare the data for your resume. Write a chronological list of the jobs you have worked in and your achievements in each job (Use simple, short sentences which begin with an action verb). Also write a list of the skills you have (technical and personal as well).
Finally, write the resume itself. Write a separate resume for each position (or type of job) you apply for. This will greatly enhance your chances for success, since the resume will be more focused on the job requirements.
Its a real joy to revise your resume. The more you revise it, the better it gets. Change it as you learn more about yourself and about the job you search. Change it for each new type of job you are applying to. Make it compact, simple to read and easy to understand. The time you invest in revising your resume will greatly pay itself in getting more quality leads a good resume will do part of the things for you even before the interview by inspiring the right people.
