Sometimes we are fortunate enough to know exactly what our next job possibility will look like. We can be specific and tailor ourselves accordingly. We know what is expected of this particular role, down to the letter, and can be sure to market our personal brand so that we stick out as the best candidate for the job.


Other times, however, we are left without many details. We can use the company’s website, social media, and inside sources to gather more general info about the ins and outs of the company, but we are still somewhat clueless as to the specific details. This possible job opportunity remains a bit of a mystery in regards to the day-to-day requirements.


In this instance, you must still be prepared to submit an extraordinary resume, even if you do not have all of the pertinent details. Without a job description to go by, you are moderately limited as to how you can put your best foot forward and reveal your skills and abilities as a perfect match for the role at hand. However, you can still write your resume in a way that will appeal to the hiring manager and highlight your strengths and talents.


How do you go about it? You gain a basic knowledge of the company and industry which you are targeting, and then you get creative. Even if you don’t know exactly what tasks are involved, you can determine the overall goals of the company and the big picture behind their mission. With this in mind, you can then tailor your resume to assure the hiring manager that you are well-equipped for this job. You can choose to see this lack of guidance regarding the job description as freedom. Freedom to highlight what you think is most important, that which best represents your aptitude and most noteworthy accomplishments.


Some find themselves in this predicament and continue to struggle in making the resume sound just right without the job details on hand. If this is you, don’t give up on yourself. There are resources to cling to, and Platinum Resumes is one such resource.
