Be intentional about whom you send your resume to, and what that resume contains.
Understand what pains they have because of the opening, the major responsibilities, and the keywords recruiters may use to find viable candidates when sourcing, and get that into the document!
Help them (the recruiters and hiring managers), help you.
Remember, the resume is marketing collateral.
Your sales sheet.
It’s no longer a career snapshot. People can figure that out just by looking at your work history.
You need to motivate them enough with your messaging to encourage them to “gift” you with 15-, 30-minutes of their time to vet you properly, possibly send you up the interview ladder.
Why not Jane, Jack, and Jill behind you?
That’s what you need to focus on. How 𝘺𝘰𝘶 can help 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮! How you can make their life easier if they hired you!
How you are the Tylenol to their pains.
The problem solver.
Figure out your value as it relates to that specific opening.
Now communicate that value in your resume.
The phone will ring.
