While some resume writers or recruiters would stress that you need to keep your resume to one page or use the same format as others, that is not always the case.
The space between knowing your worth and effectively conveying it during interviews or conversations can be murky.
A long-form resume is a word vomit of your career history.
We’ve all been there, you’ve found a job post that fits you, or you’re reaching out to an employee at one of your target companies but you’re drawing a blank as to how to ask for a referral, introduction or that illusive insider information.
Many times the first step in the hiring process is a phone interview, and if you’re like a lot of people you might hate phone conversions!
Many of my clients have found success using their 1:1 meetings with me to develop the stories of their career so they have options to place in their cover letters.
So you’ve found a role that intrigues you and you want to submit your resume to be considered, don’t forget a snappy cover letter!
