How to Write a Resume For the 80K+ Professional

HOW TO WRITE A RESUME FOR THE 80K+ PROFESSIONAL Seriously, that one-page CV you learned to put together in high school might have landed you a lifeguarding job, but it will not get you that $80,000-plus position today. It'll crash and burn right into the recycling bin. 66 As you grow up, so should your resume. 99 Amos has helped create resumes for some of the top professionals and executives in Canada. Also, as an executive recruiter for the last 15 years, he has identified top talent for several Fortune 100 companies. AMOS TAYTS FOUNDER OF RESUME TARGET REMEMBER THESE TWO GUIDING PRINCIPLES THEN WE'LL GET TO THE NUTS AND BOLTS } 1 As a teenager, your work experience consisted of almost nothing. Now you actually have achievements worth telling recruiters about. Highlight any awards or accolades * that you have received in your role.

Objective statements don't exist anymore. * Why it matters Recruiters spend only six seconds reviewing an applicant's resume before deciding to read further or to trash it, according to a 2012 study on recruiter behaviour released by The Ladders. CAREER EXPERIENCE THIS IS WHERE YOU SHOW THAT YOUR SKILLS HAVE ACHIEVED MEASURABLE RESULTS IN PAST POSITIONS DO DO NOT Order listed positions by chronological order, unless your most relevant position is not the most recent. Absolutely avoid simply writing down previous job descriptions. The aim here is to show your achievements. In that case, create two separate sections, the first one as "Relevant Experience" and the second as "Additional Experience" and ensure the positions under each section are listed in chronological order. Ask yourself the following questions: Have you introduced a new system? Cut costs? Managed during a time of cutbacks? Did your company's market share increase while you were in the Dosition?
