Refining Your Resume Language

Want to have the resume that stands out? Want to be able to assist the Employer to easily identify what you are bringing to the table? Many employers are frustrated by canned resumes which offer blanket statements like, “identified items and prepared budgets to meet monetary guidelines”. To many of us, that statement sounds great! So what’s the problem? The employer wants to know what type of items you identified and is there a specific process you used? The employer wants to know how you prepared those budgets? Did you use specific software with specific methods? What type of monetary guidelines were you working with? So now you see how an employer can be frustrated because a statement such as this creates many questions left unanswered. Today we have provided a link to a PowerPoint in which a student provided a resume to an employer for review. The employer responded with questions and expectations of what the employer would prefer to be able to identify in the resume. We think you will find this information helpful. You might even consider printing it out to keep handy as you modify your resume to create the resume that makes you stand out among the rest of the applicants.
