Job seekers often communicate a first impression through their rsums. In the
newly updated edition of "Expert Rsums for Managers and Executives," authors
Wendy Enelow and Louise Kursmark stress the importance of a strong rsum for all
applicants."A vital component of your careermanagementplan is your rsum, which
must instantly position you as a well-qualified and highly competitive
candidate," the authors say. "The easiest way to accomplish that objective is by
developing a powerful, performance-based rsum."
In their book, Enelow and Kursmark provide numerous rsum samples, divided by
career field, that are aimed at people at all levels of management, from
front-linesupervisorsto top-levelexecutives. They also offer nine strategies for
writing effective rsums:1. Write for the job you want:"You cannot write an
effective rsum without knowing, at least to some degree, what type or types of
positions you will be seeking."2. Sell it to me, don't tell it to me:"If you
'tell it,' you simply state facts. If you 'sell it,' you promote it, advertise
it and draw attention to it."3. Use keywords:"Keywords are ... specific to a
particular industry or profession. When you use these words and phrases, you are
communicating a specific message."4. Use the "big" and save the "little":"Try to
focus on the 'big' things -- revenue and profit growth, new initiatives and
ventures, special projects, cost savings ... then save the 'little' stuff -- the
details -- for the interview."5.Make your rsum "interviewable":After "you are
contacted for a telephone or in-person interview, your rsum becomes
all-important in leading and prompting your interviewer during your
conversation."6. Eliminate confusion with structure and context:"Be consistent,
make information easy to find and define the context in which you worked."7.Use
function to demonstrate achievement:"A rsum that focuses on your job functions
can be dry and uninteresting and says little about your unique activities and
contributions."8. Remain in the realm of reality:"Do not push your skills and
qualifications outside the bounds of what is truthful."9. Be confident:"There is
only one individual with the specific combination of employment experience,
qualifications, achievements, education and technical skills that you have."
"Your rsum can have tremendous power and a phenomenal impact on your job search.
So don't take it lightly," Enelow and Kursmark say. "Rather, devote the time,
energy and resources that are essential to developing a rsum that is
well-written,visuallyattractive and effective incommunicatingwho you are and how
you want to be perceived."Lori Michelle Ryan is the marketing communications
