There are many books and references in how to write the perfect resume or CV, yet the focus always seems to be about fitting your life onto one page (a rather poor epitaph to a career you have worked hard to build). Either that or we read about power words that recruiters and headhunters will get so excited by, that they may well fall off their chairs while grabbing the phone to call you in for an interview.

After years of being an employer myself, including running large-scale commercial recruitment operations, I have seen far more resumes than is probably healthy for me. I have sat struggling to understand what an applicant has accomplished in their career, how they can qualify fluffy power words like aggressive, competent, hard-working, motivated, with the worst usually being detail-oriented, which is usually spelt wrong!

Hiring Managers typically decide within 10 seconds whether they'll bother to read your resume. This book helps you get a resume that beats the rule and get the interviews you want.

Об авторе

I have been fortunate in my career that I have managed to re-invent myself several times within my life, realising that whatever your last job was, does not mean to say that your next one should follow the same path. I work on the adage that the more experience one gains, the more one can offer a future employer and yourself as a person. ​ I started life as a trained chef and partner in a restaurant business, only to find out that I was a pretty awful cook. From selling my business at age twenty-two, I became voluntary Chairman of two charities that were in distress, saving both of them from the rigours of financial insolvency; which then led me to utilizing my skills at the United Nations during the Bosnian War. Building on the operational and financial skills I have gained. My abilities in eCommerce led me to Hong Kong at the end of 1999, where I worked for Hong Kong Telecom as head strategist of eConsulting and IT strategy, noting that my only knowledge of IT at that time was that all computer systems had flashing lights and a plethora of cables. From the heady IT & Telecommunications industry, I moved to the Recruitment Industry, where I had remained for some years in leading one of Asia’s largest independent recruitment firms over eight offices in Hong Kong, China, Singapore & Thailand. My most recent incarnation has focused my energies on operational management, human resources, business development and financial control of one of the region’s most respected Trust and Fiduciary organisations engaged in helping firms enter the China market through management of their operations and business interests. This includes accountancy, legal, trade and company structures through a consultative approach that encapsulates the client business needs when trading far from their own shores.

  • The key point to bear in mind about a resume is that it should be treated as an application. You might consider devel-oping specific resumes developed for each career field in which you are job searching.

  • Good information to include: business development, training, profit and loss respon-sibility, training, compliance, legal draft-ing etc.

  • Working within multiple areas of expertise, you should still work to focus on one area that you are excellent at, and by that we are looking at prioritizing who you are because a diluted brand isn't go-ing to make it clear to the employer what you offer.

  • Take a look at examples of CV’s online and get some inspiration – I assure you that you can not write a profile in five or ten minutes, rather over a day or two as you write and then re-write how you want people to see (perceive) you.

  • Take a look at the type of jobs you are applying for, concentrating on keywords that appear in job titles and job descriptions. Make a list of the words that come up. These are the types of words you should integrate into the sec- tion.
