May 18, 2007, Newsletter Issue #84: Prioritizing Accomplishments in a Resume

Tip of the Week

You should prioritize your accomplishments and skills according to impressiveness, uniqueness, and relevance to the prospective position. Don't bury the skill that would be most likely to impress a recruiter.

Resumes are scanned quickly, so a recruiter may move on to the next resume if you lead with an irrelevant skill. Revenue and statistical data can make a big impression on a resume, so keep track of what you do in your daily work that is impacting the company overall.
