What’s Missing from Your Resume?

People who land the job they are after usually share one thing: a great resume. How do they do it? How do they stand out from the crowd? “First and foremost, networking is key,” explains Tom McNeil, President of career consultants MDL Partners (www.mdlpartners.com).  “A great network will allow you to get your resume in front of the right people and get it put on the top of the pile.”

But then what? In today’s competitive job seeking environment your resume better shine to get a second look.

So what is missing from most resumes? You.

Personalization is important. You reach out to people with your resume. You attract people to you by projecting your personal brand and value. “Creating effective messaging with your resume is critical to a successful job search,” adds McNeil. “MDL Partners works with clients to differentiate themselves.”

Express your voice and personality. Since so many people are competing for the same jobs with similar qualifications, personalizing the keywords you use in your resume can give you an edge with a prospective employer.

Add in some intense networking, with a clear plan in place, and you’re a step ahead.
