|Rebuilding Your Resume|
Page 1 of 3
Your resume is a window into yourself and your abilities. But it’s also a selling piece—it has to tell a potential employer exactly why you are the right person for the specific job they’re looking to fill. While your resume can take on a variety of different formats, it needs to be easy to read for someone who may only spend 20 seconds reading it. Follow these tips to get the most out of your resume.
Be vague about employment gaps. If you’ve spent some time looking for a job after your termination, you’ll probably have to cover up the time on your resume. But it’s not necessary to include exact dates of jobs, or even months. It’s okay to say you worked at a company from 2004-2007 without being specific about end dates.
