STEP 1 – Resume Heading STEP 2 – Objective statement STEP 3 – Skills Summary STEP 4 – Work Experience STEP 5 – Education & Professional Training The first thing you want to do when writing your resume from scratch is to create an inventory of everything you have done in your career.

The sad truth is, it probably wasn't your fault. But, it is your problem! The goal here is to help you understand the actual reasons you get the job (or have interview success). Once you understand the three--often-undetectable--reasons you ultimately get the job, you'll be more prepared for next interview. Mistake Alert: Most people think they get a job because of their qualifications. In doing so, they expend so much energy in the interview focusing on their experience. You get a job interview because of your qualifications. You get the job for three reasons, none of which are your qualifications. Why do you get the job? Based on my observation from thousands of interviews between my clients (the hiring companies) and job candidates (prospective employees), I've concluded a candidate's attainment of the job is largely contingent on three often-undetectable success factors: - The candidate's ability to effectively articulate his or her qualifications and potential contributions (encoding) - The interviewer's ability to accurately interpret the candidate's qualifications (decoding) - The interviewer's capacity to remember the candidate (memory) The reality is you have a greater chance of failing the interview because of a misrepresentation or misinterpretation than you do a lack of qualification. Action: After you review the video, think about your previous interviews (or exchanges with coworkers) and consider where you had these communication breakdowns. What could you have done differently? Up Next! In the next lesson, How to Tell Great Stories, I'll help you overcome these communication gaps. You'll learn the five key characteristics of every great story that makes you likeable, believable, and memorable to the employer. See you in a day or so! -------------------- ABOUT TIPS FOR WORK AND LIFE® -------------------- Tips for Work and Life® is a weekly careers, hiring, and motivational show full of helpful job search strategies, career management and acceleration tactics, recruitment techniques, and self-help aids with the award-winning author, career coach, and trainer Andrew LaCivita.

SIGN UP HERE: http://bit.ly/aceanyjobinterviewwebinar -------------------- SUMMARY -------------------- 1. Based on the direction of the company, what do you think will be your greatest accomplishments in the next three years? Organizations need to be able to think at least three to five years into the future. But, you don't want to join an organization that only thinks about the future. Thinking is nice, but companies that act and build things and have clarity around specifically what they're going to do are worthy of you. Join them. It's a great question because it helps you understand whether they have a vision and if they have clarity regarding specifically what they want to build. Questions two, three, and four are about you and your role… 2. What are the qualities of people who are most successful in this position? You're looking for the traits the employer wants. The reason it’s a great question is you’ll get the actual traits they’re evaluating and you can use that insight immediately to highlight how you and your background and experience match those traits! Plus, it’s a great setup question for the next one. 3. If you were to give me an offer and I was to accept it, one year from now, what will I have done specifically that you would consider this hire to be a raging success? It gives you clarity to make sure you could actually achieve those objectives. And, it gives you ammunition to use within that interview or subsequent interviews to talk about exactly how you’ll accomplish what they consider a success. You now know their (year-end) goal is. Get them to envision you completing it for them. Boom. This one wins the interview even though you’re not done yet. Let’s pile on a bit… 4. If you were to give me an offer and I was to accept it, within one week of starting this job, what will be my biggest surprise? This is a little safety net for you. You want to make sure you're uncovering information you might not have uncovered with the questions you've designed. It gets the interviewer thinking hmmm, what might this person not ask in the job interview I could share or what surprised me when I first started with the company? 5. What's your management style and what are your expectations of the position you might not have already mentioned? -------------------- ABOUT ANDREW -------------------- Andrew LaCivita is an internationally recognized executive recruiter, award-winning author, trainer, and founder and chief executive officer of milewalk and the milewalk Academy.

SUMMARY
---------------------

Your resume has only one goal: To entice a prospective employer to speak with you!

Contact Information

-Name: Use first and last name only.
-Address: Street Number, City, State, and Zip Code.
-Phone: Use your cell with a professional voicemail greeting. Do not use your home number with the kids yelling or dogs barking in the background.
-Email: Use a personal and polished email with your name (johnsmith@gmail.com). Do not use nondescript formats (ilovebirds@gmail.com).

Career Profile

In this section, include one or two very short paragraphs, which identify:

-Who you are
-What you’ve accomplished
-Summary of proficient skills

Don’t include what you want because you want to get them excited!

In the video and podcast, I provided two dissimilar examples of how to aggregate your careers (including a sales professional and hostess examples for illustrative diversity).

Career Highlights

In this section, include three to four significant accomplishments.

You’ll hit home runs if you focus on the three key areas companies care about:

-Generating revenue
-Saving costs
-Optimizing their infrastructure and processes to operate more effectively

In the video and podcast, I provided additional examples.

Work Experience

In this section, outline the following information. The video and podcast have substantially more insight to the rationale and details.

-List work history in reverse chronological order (never organize by functions performed across companies).
-Place company name on left side with one sentence description of company immediately underneath.
-Indent titles/roles underneath company and description with one or two sentences to aggregate accomplishments at the position.
-Detail accomplishments and responsibilities within each position.

Education

List your school(s), city, state, and date of degree or anticipated completion date.

Extracurricular and Volunteer Activities

Identify any relevant participation, activities, and experience.
