9:59 AM     Upgrade Your Resume Tip

I came across a Word document that was sent to me by someone who I presume got it from a Headhunter. In any case, the information is pretty simple, but the way that it helps you focus on the things that are important to a hiring manager.

This kind of resume-creation aid can be helpful when facing a blank page and trying to summarize your entire career into a couple of pages. It can also give you ammo to go into your annual (semi-annual, monthly, whatever) review and be able to push for a raise.

Initially, I was going to link to it or make it available or something. But, as it turns out, it was going to be a huge pain to link to it and I figured out that it really isn't that complex. So, I've reproduced it below.

Fill out this form for each major project that you participated in. This is not one per position, but one per project. Yes, it'll take a little bit of effort, but this is the way to go.

PROJECT: (list only 1 project)

OBJECTIVES - List up to 5 objectives for each project.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

RESULTS - List results that apply to (a) the objectives above and/or (b) business results.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

TECHNOLOGIES - List up to 5 technologies that YOU, personally, used during this project.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.


Once you have these filled out for every project (that you can remember) and every employer, you will have the basis for a great resume.

Or, if you're not looking, you'll have a great proof book for your annual review.

Good luck!
