Is it one page? Two, three or more pages? Does it open with an objective or summary statement? Does it tell the reader what you do on a day-to-day basis or highlight your skills and abilities?

If you are engaged in a job search or thinking about starting one, you need a resume that works for you. One that presents you as “the candidate” for the job.

A high performance resume should include –

* Accurate contact information – Double check your phone and email. It is easy to transpose a number or type in the wrong letter.
* Professional email address – one that is appropriate for a job search.
* What value do you bring? – Fold your resume in half. What do you see? If it is something like “to obtain a position that will allow me to use my skills and abilities and further the company.” Start over. Your resume should focus on what you offer an employer rather than what you want from an employer.
* Results rather than daily tasks / responsibilities – Share your accomplishments! Quantify by using percentages, numbers, dollar amounts.
* Accurate phrases – use the correct words / phrases (ensure smooth flow of business rather than insure smooth flow of business) read, read and read again to ensure your document is error-free!
* Content that is focused. Leave off “Resume of”, References Available by Request. These are space wasters. Use information that directly relates to the position you are seeking and leave off the rest.
