Résumé, What’s Its Purpose?
For people who must write, read, and help others to develop résumés.
Résumés are often misunderstood. Some people say they should be one, two, three or more pages. Others say they should be job specific. Still other people say they should or shouldn’t include an objective, activities, hobbies, enjoyments, etc.
Many people who want to create or write a résumé often guess what should be on a rés-umé without questioning why.
Then, there are the readers of résumés: people whose job it is to find people to fill posi-tions in companies and organizations (interviewers, human resource representatives); people who are looking to create jobs around your unique skills, abilities, and experience (job developers); and people who want to know more about you so they can help you.
Then, there are people who teach or assist others to develop résumés. Many say things such as, only focus on accomplishments over the past ten years, do not include dates be-cause they reveal your age, and the employer only wants to see, etc., without understanding how they themselves and the employer representative (interviewers, hu-man resource representatives) developed their own skills, abilities, and experiences.
In reality, a résumé is only a piece of paper, but what’s on that paper can alter your life and open the door to new employment opportunities.
Our résumé workshops have helped thousands of individuals to find enjoyable employ-ment while satisfying employer productivity needs.
