As an executive career management practitioner. I manage the careers of senior executives, business leaders, executive MBAs and mining professionals. Today, we are here on the famous King’s Road in Chelsea. It’s always been a very trendy place. In the 1960’s it was the home to the hippies and in the 1970’s it was home to all the punk rockers and skinheads. In fact, every Saturday night there was a fight here between those two trends took place. It was during these years that I honed my police training. And then in the 1980’s the trend was the yuppies.
Today, trends are just as important in your resume writing as they were back then.
Here are the top two things you need to be aware of when you are creating your resume:
1. Resumes have to be ATS friendly. ATS stands for Automated Tracking Systems. Resumes aren’t generally read by human beings any longer. They are now read by scanning machinery. Therefore, your resume has to have ATS criteria.
2. Resumes need lots of performance and accomplishment driven stories. These must be based on STAR:
Be a storyteller and sell yourself!
