Acknowledgments

The Essential Series books wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my friends and family. Many hands helped with proofreading, editing and beta reading to make this book happen. I had a vision and without all these special people, I couldn’t have made it come to pass.

I thank you all.

Introduction

Writing a good novel takes time. It’s a personal journey that requires research, dedication, and a little blood to turn your thoughts into something you can be proud of. Like an aged wine, any writing improves when given a chance to breathe and expand over time. In the process, more ideas develop, better ways to say things come to you, half-fleshed-out ideas show up, and some of the lines you absolutely love, need to be cut. Writing a good résumé deserves the same effort. You need time to consider who you are, the experiences you’ve gained, accomplishments you’ve achieved, and the skills you have to offer your next employer. That’s not done in an hour or even two. Give yourself the required time to create a masterpiece that you can be proud of.

Résumé writing isn’t new for me. I’ve written on the subject and it’s many associated topics for years. It is an important field. In our current economic situation, it is even more important to have a good résumé. You might be able to go out and get a job with only your current documentation, but then, you might not. Some people might rewrite their résumé and cover letters based on my books and still not get a job. There are no guarantees in life.

My book can help you. Are you ready to reassess your skills and your experiences in such a way that you can present them as achievements – as something you’ve accomplished once and therefore can do again – so as to benefit a new employer?

So many people, being caught up in the panic of needing a new job and overwhelmed at the various elements that go into this process, forget that although the job hunt is about them, the end result is about what they can bring to the new employer.

It’s often said that the résumé is about you and the cover letter is about the potential employer. That is too simplistic. The résumé is about you only as far as it demonstrates how you can benefit the potential employer. The employer needs to find a solution to a problem. They need someone who can do something specific to keep their company functioning in a specific way. The closer you can demonstrate that you are ‘that’ person, the closer you are to landing the job.

Does this sound too easy? In a way it is. With the Internet giving easy access to jobs and the economic situation being as difficult as it is, people are applying for jobs for which they are not qualified – ever hopeful that somehow they will magically get picked for an interview.

Just because you think you can do a job, doesn’t mean you can. As the recruiters and employers become buried under the onslaught, they’ve had to develop ways of searching through the thousands and thousands (no I’m not kidding!) of applications for their jobs.

Somehow, your résumé has to float to the top of that sea.

There’s no point in complaining how impossible it is to get a job as a massage therapist if you don’t have the required education or equivalent experience. If this is the field you want to work in – great! Really, it is. However, you need to start by getting the education and certification that the industry requires BEFORE applying for these jobs.

The answer is to find jobs in your field, providing that’s where you want to stay. You should build the best résumé you can to show this employer that you have done this type of work before and that you can do it again!

Desperate times breed rash acts and it’s hard to blame people who are just trying to find a job. However, companies are desperate to find the right person to join their team and solve the problem they are facing. They’re frustrated at the sheer volume of applicants they have to sort through.

What’s the answer?

Make it easy for them to see YOU amongst all those faces.

Let me show you how! Grab a pen, a pad of paper, and let’s get started!

1.

What is a Résumé?

It’s interesting that in our modern world there is still some confusion over what a résumé really is.

Your résumé is a marketing tool. It showcases your talents and your experience in such a way as to ‘sell’ you to a potential employer.

It’s not a litany of your past. It’s not a personal statement of who you are in the business world. It’s a sales tool. Too many people look at a résumé as being all about them. True enough, it is all about ‘you’ but in such a way as to the direct benefit that you can offer an employer.

Consider any sales ad, TV or otherwise. In each and every case, the message is about how buying that item benefits you, the consumer.

Your résumé is no different. It needs to show how hiring you helps the employer.

A résumé is a communication sales tool that clearly lays out for an employer what you can bring to the negotiating table and in such a way that they can see how hiring you is the answer to their problems. What can you offer? What problems can you solve? What sales increases have you made in the past that show that you can do it again with the new company?
