Resume thoughts for Mid-career and Mature
Filed under: Public Relations docs, Leadership, Mature professionals

Madeline Kowall authored a nice piece

“What I Look For When I Evaluate an
Executive Resume”

 on 6figurejobs.com (the link is too long…)

It nicely describes resume features that
have a common thread for what employers
and recruiters seek.  Let me highlight four
items:

1.  Clearly define for the reader areas of
preference based on your self assessment
revealing how you contributed to the bottom
line.

2.  At the top of the resume, point out business,
technical, and leadership skills that can match
the needs…
   proficient at…
   expert doing…
   experienced in…

3.  Describe the “footprint” you left in your
previous position with numbers revealing
specific accomplishments.

4.  If you have certifications, how did you use
them.

Mostly, these touch on multidisciplinary roles,
in touch with business development or
improvement, that one can face
after several years in industry.
