It’s hard to be objective when writing your resume, and it’s even harder to spot and cut out parts that are outdated.
I often have a situation when, before rewriting a 6-page resume, I need to discuss with my clients why, as senior-level professionals, they need to say goodbye to their achievements and other info from 15 years ago.
It can seem a bit too much, but it is usually necessary because the resume's goal at that professional level is to focus on the leadership influence and the results – and those are done mainly in the last 10-15 years.
So, this is what you don’t need on your senior-level/executive resume anymore:
⛔ Objective section (write a strategic and catchy summary instead)
⛔ Information that is too personal (date of birth, full address, relationship status)
⛔ Salary information
⛔ Awards won at the University
⛔ Volunteering done before your first job
⛔ Courses/training completed at the beginning of the career
Message me if you struggle to fix these problems on your resume.
Work smarter, not harder. 🍀 Have a successful week, folks!
