“How Does My Resume Look Compared to Other Candidates’ Resumes?”

I’ve just finished the consultation with my client - he asked a question many people have been asking me lately:

What many think is that adding more skills, more courses, or more certificates on their CVs will help them stand out from the competition.

The truth is – everyone can copy-paste job posting requirements onto their resume, but that will not help them stand out and get invited to the interview.

What will actually help to present you as a unique, valuable candidate is something you already have – your professional RESULTS.

Your personal career achievements are the only way how you can stand out, demonstrate, and offer a UNIQUE VALUE to a prospective employer.

So, when you are writing your resume (especially as a senior professional), make sure it addresses:

Number 1️⃣

Your professional RESULTS and ACHIEVEMENTS in the last 10 years – those are unique, and those are your competitive advantage. Include them as a separate resume section or highlight them under every role you had.

Number 2️⃣

How you MATCH job posting qualification requirements – make this visible throughout your resume (summary, skills, experience)

It’s not always easy, I know. 💙

Do your best or ask for help if you feel totally lost.

Work smarter, not harder. 🍀
