Despite the impact of the digital age on executive job search, career professionals will tell you that a targeted, value proposition-driven resume is still one of the most critical elements in any successful search.
The resume is NOT dead. You still need to have one.
But the Internet, social media and the new world of work have had a major impact on executive resume content and formatting. No longer merely a career history outlining jobs, responsibilities and achievements, these days a resume is a career marketing document that positions you as a good-fit candidate for your target employers.
Pull together a branded resume with content and format designed to resonate with your target employers, and you up the odds that you’ll generate interest and get interviews.
A great resume is also the foundation for an interview-generating LinkedIn profile, and other online profiles and personal marketing materials.
But do you know how to pull all the pieces together to create your branded, value prop-driven resume? Most job seekers don’t know enough about today’s strategic resume writing to best position themselves to land.
I can help. And here’s where I discuss what my new CMRW credential is all about.
Awarded by Career Directors International (CDI), the Certified Master Resume Writer is the careers industry’s oldest master-level resume credential and the only one endorsed by a professional association.
Only the 17th person worldwide to have earned this distinguished credential, I join a select group of elite resume writers who have proven themselves by submitting a portfolio of work that has been judged by a panel of CMRW peers. Professionals who themselves are Toast of the Resume Industry (TORI) Award Winners and worldwide leaders of the industry.
The portfolio submitted must stand out for its innovation, for advanced formatting that grasps the attention of the reader, and for superior command of the language that makes every bullet point an unfolding story.
