Does Your Resume Do It's Job?

Why do you have a resume?  What was your objective in writing it?  What is the goal of sharing it?  The answer, generally, is simple.  The objective of your resume is to get you an interview.  

Review your resume objectively.  Is it attractive, well laid out, and easy to read?  At first glance, do you see the skills that your potential employer wants?  Do you see proof that you are as good as you say you are?  Do you want to interview yourself?  In other words, does your resume do its job?

If not, then put your resume to work with the following five tips:
- Condense.  You don't want to read more than one or two pages about yourself, and neither does your new manager.
- Start strong.  Lead with a summary or executive profile that  highlights your big-picture accomplishments and clearly defines the value you provide to the employer.
- Be selective.  Consider whether the information included will persuade an employer to interview you.
- Proofread.  Proofread.  Proofread.  And then ask someone else to proofread.  
- Quantify.  Numbers, percentages, and dollars prove your assertions.
