For many, the task of writing a resume can seem like a never-ending cycle of writing a rough draft, shaking your head in disapproval, wadding it up and throwing it in the trash, and then starting all over again. You just can’t seem to get the right words together. You just can’t seem to take the wealth of experience and knowledge that you have in your field and make it shine on this very important piece of paper.
As if searching for a new job isn’t already exhausting and emotional enough, nobody wants to endure the added pressure of throwing together a well-written resume in a short amount of time. Oftentimes, this is something that we put off longer than we should. We think, “Well, I don’t have any legitimate prospects at this time, so I’ll just mess with tweaking my resume later this week.” Or, the ever popular, “It will only take me a few minutes to put something together. I’ll just google a random template and plug my info in. That will be professional enough, right?”
Although job candidates go about resume writing in many different ways, there comes a point at which you want to separate yourself from “everyone else”. Just because your resume was good enough to land you your previous job doesn’t mean that it’s still up to par. And, just because your roommate, with wicked grammar skills, took a minute to proofread it for you, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your resume is now ready to knock the socks off of any hiring manager who sets his or her eyes upon it.
Writing your resume is something to take seriously. Putting yourself out there on paper is a huge risk, and you have to be well-equipped for taking that risk. You don’t want to submit your interest in a particular position if you are not prepared to represent yourself professionally. This is why putting all you’ve got into this very important document can mean the difference in being heavily considered for your dream job or being disregarded altogether.
